Very lazy attempt to make an action film
16 December 2016 | by RamonCota1See all my reviews

It's an unfortunate trend now for action movies to use CGI for explosions and muzzle flash. Expendable Assets is a prime example utilising very poor and unconvincing CGI.

The whole film is basically a series of shootouts in a forest & abandoned mill, punctuated by abysmal acting & dialogue to try to resemble a plot. There's even some cliché romance thrown in.

What really brings Expendable Assets down, even compared to other low budget action films, is the lack of realism. There are many scenes where people are shot with no blood whatsoever. The director makes no attempt to hide this; close-ups of the 'gunshot victims' clearly show a lack of any wounds. High school film makers would have done a better job.
