“A big boy’s film, with big guns, big explosions and even a few big laughs” URBAN CINEFILE
THE EXPENDABLES is a hard—hitting action/thriller about a group of mercenaries hired to infiltrate a South American country and overthrow its ruthless dictator. Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) is a man with nothing to lose. Fearless and void of emotion, he is the leader, the sage and the strategist of this tight—knit band of men who live on the fringe. The team behind him is made up of Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), former SAS and a savant with anything that has a blade; Yin Yang (Jet Li), a master at close—quarter combat; Hale Caesar (Terry Crews), a long—barrel weapons specialist; Toll Road (Randy Couture), a skilled demolitions expert and considered the intellect of the group; and Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), a combat veteran and an expert in precision sniping who struggles with his own demons.
Described as possibly the greatest line up of the hardest-hitting action men ever assembled, The Expendables grossed just under $10 million at the Australian box-office, and a sequel has since been announced.
