The Expendables with good actors
12 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

This movie is essentially The Expendables but tastefully tuned down:

  • Not as hokey, fewer big names, and fewer unnecessarily large explosions


The casting was decently balanced with a mix of B/B+ actors, most being recognizable but not necessarily known for only playing quintessential badass roles.

Once you're branded a badass actor (albeit not necessarily untalented), it's hard to break that mold in Hollywood, even if the actor is multifaceted. Willis is a great example if you look at some of his earlier work (Sixth Sense).

That being said, you know what to expect of modern-day badass Willis. As far as the supporting cast, it was appreciated to see some of the lesser-known unconventional actors 'earn' badass status in this movie.

I hope Hollywood realizes that you don't need to cast a well-built actor to play a badass role (unless body-type is pivotal to the plot).. But hell, look at Bryan Cranston in Breaking Bad!

The verdict: Great action, decent acting/casting, contrived plot.

5.5/10
