Barney Ross is approached by CIA man Church, who wants him and his guns for hire to go to the former Soviet Union to retrieve something that was on a plane that crashed. Church doesn't tell him what he is getting. And Church sends a woman, Maggie with him to make sure he gets it. They find the plane and get the thing but some men take one of Barney's people hostage and the leader tells him to give him what they got or he'll kill his hostage. They give it to him but he kills his hostage anyway. Barney asks Maggie what was so important about that thing. She says that it showed the location of a Russian plutonium storage mine. Barney decides to track the man down and deal with him. They track them down and discover that the man they seek is Vilain who leads a group known as The Sangs and that they have taken all the men from the surrounding villages to work the mine.

Did You Know?
In the opening sequence, The Expendables escape by climbing an electricity pylon (transmission tower) and zip wiring along the cables which are clearly shown to be live as indicated by sparks. On the DVD/Blu Ray Director's Commentary, Simon West states that making contact with live cables without electrocution is possible as long as the person is grounded, when in fact the opposite is true. So in reality they would've been electrocuted as soon as they attempted the transfer from the grounded pylon to the live cables. Ironically, zip wiring along live cables also featured in the Stallone film Tango & Cash, but in that movie it was explained correctly that non-grounding prevents electrocution. See more

The credits show images of the actors. When each image appears the skull shows first then the rest of the actors image fades in. When Arnold Schwarzenegger
