Watched A Movie For Guys - The Expendables

I watched a "man's" movie the other day - The Expendables. Why I said it's a "man's" movie? Well, it's action packed, bloody, a lot of muscles showcased and bones cracking in it! Ouch! Not exactly the type of film I would normally pick in a movie house. It's like watching another Rambo movie all over again! haha! I had fun watching it with my friend Jodi.

I was curious about the movie not only because it was starred, written, produced and directed by Sylvester Stallone, I was also curious about all the other action veterans who are in the film!

Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture and Stallone make up the Expendables who are a team of mercenaries who are tasked to bring down a ruthless dictator, David Zayas, in South America. Ah! The battle was really bloody and fiery! There were scenes where Stallone was really beaten up for real by the big man, Steve Austin. That's because Sly asked him to. That part of the movie looked realistic! Just like all his other films, Stallone don't need a double for most of his stunts! It just amazes me because at 63, he still have the capability of making unbelievable stunts. He's actually still in good shape!

Mickey Rourke's role in the movie is Sly's brother who looks pretty much like a DOM (Dirty Old Man) haha! He does Sly's tattoos and plays dart with Statham using their knives.

Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger had cameo roles in the movie. I thought both of them were part of the Expendables. Unfortunately they weren't.

When the movie ended, Jodi and I concluded that it is indeed a movie for guys! My uncles and cousins back in the province would love watching this film! They are Rambo fans, actually. :D
