The Expendables

The toughest action movie cast ever assembled coming to your screen

Stars

Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger

The pitch

Stallone saddles up as the writer, director and star of this hulking slab of ’80s-style all-action man-meat mayhem. He plays the leader of a crack team of mercenaries sent to overthrow a Central American dictator.

The word

The plot sounds like pure Reaganomics: Western heroes rescue the Third World from itself. But the trailer makes it look a lot of fun: with cameos from the likes of Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger and ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin, plus as many explosions, punch-ups and dropkicks as Stallone can reasonably squeeze into a couple of hours, this could be the last word in old-school heroics – or it could kickstart a new wave of flagwaving American screen trash.
