While I have never (directly) paid to see any of the ‘Expendables’ films when I happen to catch one I generally have a good time. There’s a sense that Sylvester Stallone and the rest of his crew aren’t taking themselves quite so seriously, no matter how much violence rains about them.
That’s a refreshing change from many movies where, if this, that or the other isn’t done in such and such a way, the whole world is threatened.
What’s also surprising is the comedic chops, pardon the pun, of some of the actors, particularly Jason Statham.
I have never been a huge fan of Stallone, but there’s no denying that he knows how to produce effective films. I might see this one in the theaters because he’s enlisted Wesley Snipes., which would be his first role since he was released from prison for tax evasion.
Plus, that whistling in the trailer is really awesome. The tune, according to the Moviebox is “Bridge on the River Kwai.”
