Barney Ross leads the "Expendables", a band of highly skilled mercenaries including knife enthusiast Lee Christmas, martial arts expert Yin Yang, heavy weapons specialist Hale Caesar, demolitionist Toll Road and loose-cannon sniper Gunner Jensen.

The opening sequence with the attack on the pirates was shot on a real Russian freighter. While authentic, this proved to be a very difficult experience due to cramped conditions and overbearing heat. See more »
When Ross and Christmas are investigating the island, Ross' goatee changes color from black to grey. When he is avoiding the troops in the street it is clearly grey, but when driving in the truck it is again black. Later on, on the same island it changes to grey once again. See more »

Action movie at its best! Everyone who enjoys action movie should watch it in the movie theatre. It's loud! It's fun! It's explosive! You don't see this kind of action flick anymore because Hollywood is trying to be smart and thrilling. Every movie has to have a surprise ending these days. In this one, you are guaranteed to see bullets flying, blood splashing, torso blowing off, body chopping up and wicked kicking. Big guns and big knives, just a little bit women, perfect though. Too much would make the guys soft. This one, using what critics like to call, is SLAM BANG kind of FUN! After it comes out on BluRay, buy it or rent it with a group of buddies, makes a fun afternoon. And surprisingly, the acting is quite good. The casts are just perfect. And so are the fighting match ups.
