The Expendables

Have not seen any discussion about this movie. Not that there is a lot to discuss....

Saw it last night at Orion Gate in Brampton. Theatre was pretty much full.

Very violent. Very restricted story. If you like violence, you will think it was great.

No nudity, but the violence was very explicit, and at times very frequent. Which brings me to my point- there were a LOT of kids. The movie is rated at 18a, but there were a huge number of kids in the 8 - 14 age bracket. The one sitting right in front of us was more like 4-5 years old.

That is just wrong.

Saw the movie yesterday with my wife.

weak plot,way ,way, way too much blood and gore,poor acting,and very loud.

I enjoyed every minute of it .

My wife even smiled a few times.But the next few movies will have to be chick-flicks. This movie used up a few years of my allocation of men movies !!

Worth buying on Blu-ray or is it a rental-only?

Thank you, Sir! You've saved me some money (to buy more Disney BD).
