The Expendables

Imagine this… Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Steve Austin, Mickey Rourke, Jet Li, Terry Crews, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren and Eric Roberts all in one movie… wouldn’t that be a blast, don’t you think so?  The action stars of the 80’s, 90’s and the 2000’s all combined to make one explosive movie.

And it will be coming to theaters this August 2010.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, The Expendables is the next big Action movie that features the “men in a mission” theme.

Here is the plot of the movie from IMDB.com (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1320253/):

“Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) is a man with nothing to lose. Fearless and void of emotion, he is the leader, the sage and the strategist of this tight-knit band of men who live on the fringe. His only attachment is to his pickup truck, his seaplane and his team of loyal modern-day warriors. His is a true cynic who describes what he does as removing those hard to get at stains. The team behind him is made up of Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), former SAS and a savant with anything that has a blade; Yin Yang (Jet Li), a master at close-quarter combat; Hale Caesar (Terry Crews), who has known Barney for ten years and is a long-barrel weapons specialist; Toll Road (Randy Couture), a skilled demolitions expert and considered the intellect of the group; and Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), a combat veteran and an expert in precision sniping who struggles with his own demons.

When the mysterious Church offers Barney a job no one else would take, Barney and his team embark on what appears to be a routine mission: overthrow General Gaza (David Zayas), the murderous dictator of the small island country of Vilena and end the years of death and destruction inflicted on its people. On a reconnaissance mission to Vilena, Barney and Christmas meet their contact Sandra (Giselle Itie), a local freedom-fighter with a dark secret. They also come to learn who their true enemy is: rogue ex-CIA operative James Monroe (Eric Roberts) and his henchman Paine (Steve Austin). When things go terribly wrong, Barney and Christmas are forced to leave Sandra behind, essentially giving her a death sentence. Haunted by this failure, Barney convinces the team to return to Vilena to rescue the hostage and finish the job he started. And to perhaps save a soul: his own.”

Personally, I am excited and is looking forward to this movie.  If the action is as good as is seen on the trailers, then this will be the best action movie for 2010.

As closing, I’ve included some trailers in my post, courtesy of youtube.com.  Enjoy!
