Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.
You think you can beat the fate? Well, the fate will beat you!
I first thought this film would be historical drama or something... And i was wrong.
This film (or might i say a picture) is a tale. A tale told in a gruesome and memorable way. Unique plot, good actors, wonderfully fit music and amazing scenery! Village reminded me of Georgia's Khevsureti... Primally raw.
In the beginning you will be bombarded with ugly and pathetic characters trying to achieve material peace, which is broken by one of the main characters of the film, but they have problem in getting rid of him.
Actually, 2/4 of the film is their struggle for that concrete reason.
One of the other 1/4 s, is very close to what ''DESIGN OF DEATH" means.
And for the last part...
The climax in this film is very strong, beautiful and heartbreaking. When the idea gets drawn, its like the film reincarnates with both main character's personal catharsis, and lethal element of fate.
Fate, enlightenment, dark reality, and grotesque storytelling give this film a legend like feel, which is great.
Very beautiful and absolutely mind blowing film. Watch it for your own good. RECOMMEND!
(also i have to give credits to people who play Niu-Jieshi and the traveling doctor. Both were very very very very good.)
