First of all, if you're looking at this review for the Director's Cut, you've probably seen The Expendables already, so I shan't bother talking about the pros and cons of film itself. Instead I'll stick to why, in many people's opinions (including my own), this is the better version of the film.

To be honest, the vast majority of the changes made here are quite small, but it's definitely a case of the whole being greater than the sum of it's parts. A lot of the new dialogue is not only funnier than what was in the theatrical version, but much of it also serves to make the characters more interesting and well-rounded; while I'm not going to claim they're now deep, thought-provoking and complex people (after all, this is still an action movie), they do seem more human and less like the cardboard cut-outs they were before. Sly has also tinkered with the editing in some of the action scenes, and while it may not be easy to spot what exactly is different, the sequences as a whole flow more easily and seem a bit more lucid.

The major changes involve the new opening credits sequence and the new soundtrack applied to the big finale, and how you feel about these differences will probably be down to personal taste more than anything. While I liked the new footage used during the opening credits, I felt the choice of music was out of place and was trying to make the scene far too downbeat. Conversely, I thought the use of Shinedown's "Diamond Eyes" over the final firefight was a big improvement - it gave the scene a lot more energy and to me the rock soundtrack made it feel far more oldschool (which was surely what the entire movie was trying to be, right?).

Barney Ross leads the "Expendables", a band of highly skilled mercenaries.

When the group is commissioned by the mysterious Mr. Church to assassinate the merciless dictator of a small South American island, Barney heads to the remote locale to scout out their opposition.

Once there, he meets with local rebel Sandra and discover the true nature of the conflict engulfing the city.

When he escapes the island and Sandra stays behind, Ross must choose to either walk away and save his own life - or attempt a suicidal rescue mission that might just save his soul....

It's the film I wanted to do really well, these are some of my favourite actors from the eighties, rolled into one film, to do an old school classic.

And for me, it was a big letdown. Each member has made worse films, but his had so much going for it, and Stallone gave us to little, and promised us so much.

The plot and narrative are straight from the nineties bin of sin, and the action sequences, the main thing about his film, felt overlong and boring. The final set piece is good, but it gets very long indeed.

Thrown in with the fact that you cannot understand half the cast sometimes in the film, and the bad CGI, it's one of the biggest letdowns in recent memory.

But, there is the scene with the Planet Hollywood owners, which is amazing and nostalgic, and almost makes up for the entire thing.

Almost.

"The Expendables" is a merry cheerful genocide between old friends à la sauce testosterone, a very violent and in the same time surprisingly tender, nostalgic, full of humour and less than half serious movie - and I loved every minute of it!

The story is in principle about a group of mercenaries, many of them a little bit aged, who are hired by the CIA to eliminate the military dictator ruling a little island in the Caribbean - but the plot is really really NOT important, and so it will not be discussed further.

The team of mercenaries is small but lethal (of course!). Its leader Barney Ross is (of course!) played by Stallone himself, who also wrote the scenario and directed the film. Ross is the oldest member of the team; he is also a man of few words, without much personal life, very calm and slightly sad. His great pride is to be the fastest man to draw and shoot the gun - "Only light is faster"...

The second in command, Lee Christmas, is played by Jason Statham, who gives an IMPRESSIVE performance!! Christmas is much younger than his commander (and best friend), much more extraverted and with a gorgeous, although unfaithful girlfriend played by Charisma Carpenter. He is an excellent marksman and an accomplished martial arts expert, but his personal specialty is knife fight and especially knife throwing. In homage to the "Magnificent seven" old western classic, Ross and Christmas have at every possible occasion a friendly speed competition between knife and revolver...

The third most important member of the team is Gunner Jensen, a gigantic sociopathic and borderline insane sniper played with great brio by Dolph Lundgren - who gives in this movie his (in my modest opinion) best screen performance ever.
