The Expendables knows exactly what it is: pure action entertainment. As Jaz found out at last week's pre-release screening, the plot is somewhat… expendable. Certain scenes, however, notably the showstopping Willis/Schwarzenegger/Stallone face off (worth the price of entry alone), are borderline spoof but nevertheless hilarious. Beyond the exhilarating explosions and the sheer physical brute of supporting man Jason Statham is the unfathomable prospect of so much mega moviestar muscle on one screen. As entirely one dimensional as Dolph Lundgren’s acting, but nevertheless a thrilling ride: Space Cowboys on anabolic steroids.
