Sylvester Stallone heads up the greatest action-star cast ever, including Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren and fellow Screen Legends: Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke and Arnold Schwarzenegger - in the high octane and highly entertaining tale of a band of highly-skilled mercenaries who go all out to take out the merciless dictator of a small island.

Expendables 2 & 3 from someone who had just
changed all his movies to Blu-ray, This movie was
bought to complete the set, glad i did, I was so
involved in the fist movie that I watched all 3
on the Saturday / night and thoroughly enjoyed
all three, will be watching again, to anybody who
has only this film, buy the rest, you wont be
so that was a disappoint which set up our mood towards the film.. It's okay. A lot of explosions, guns, matey-male banter and not much else.
This new version titled The Expendables: Extended Directors Cut - does fix that issue with the ending - and the ending is far more dramatic and spectacular now - the action sequences are longer in the climax which makes the ending more satisfying.
However with this new extended cut comes a few new extra scenes at the start which kind of slow the pace down - and don't really do anything new for the plot.
For example there are some music-video type narrative scenes, if you don't know what I mean there are a number of these types of scenes in COBRA and ROCKY IV - these ruin the pace and are really not required - if a scene can be done without sticking a song over it, it should be done that way - it's just lazyness on the moviemaker's part.
Also there is a rather dumb sequence showing Dolph Lundgren's character somehow coming out of the plane that Sly and Jason Statham have travelled on to the island of Vilaina at the start of the movie (somehow Dolph managed to misaculously avoid being caught by the other 2 expendables en-route.) this only serves to ruin what were otherwise alread excellently edited scenes in the original movie. Which is why I give this an excellent 4 star rating rather than the perfect 5 it should have been.
out of the two versions I prefer the previous uncut bluray release - however this disc is still a must-buy just to see the excellent end action sequences in their newly edited form.
If Sly had simply slapped the new ending on the otherwise excellent original this would've been the perfect special edition.
This is still an excellent version to watch however and an excellent companion piece to the original movie and worthy of being part of your collection.
Great entertainment, and some doody special features. Definitely worth owning.
Put the biggest names in action films together and make an absolutely AWFUL movie......
Put the biggest names in action films together, have lots fo fun with it and make a realloy entertaining movie!
They went for the second option... and succeeded. I really enjoyed this film. It will never win masses of awards at the oscars, but it does not claim to be attempting to either. It is a hard core action movie, sit back - set a big stupid grin on your face andwatch all yoru favourite recent action movie heroes blow LOTS of stuff up, and fire ridiuclous numbers of bullets everywhere!
