Serious bald guy from the CIA recruits a team of steep peasants to overthrow the dictator in a tiny South American country. However, when it comes to shooting, it is much more complicated and twisted. Sylvester Stallone is the “Expendables” – a true film festival, which marks the main youthful movie-dream 1990: how the past heroes of the fighters coming together.
“The Expendables” – ardent greetings from the legendary heroes of the last blockbuster, photographs of which 1990 were plastered walls in the room of every boy. The film is, strictly speaking, not a movie, a nostalgic skit, organized by those “who are in favor, with the participation of those who today took the baton from them. Touching event: despite what the “Expendables” on every meter of the film required someone is targeted, or slaughtered with a knife, the movie does not look militants and soulful dedication to strong male brotherhood and friendship, non-flammable.
The film combined a brilliant “old guard” members of one species which is warm to the soul, and new characters have already won audience’s hearts. In the first cohort of – Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, Steve Austin and Schwarzenegger with Bruce Willis in a charming cameo. “Youth” is represented mainly violent Statham and Jet Li. What is above them in the “Expendables” all the way stebutsya appear – a fun form of bullying and rude humor-writer Stallone.
Jet Li takes money, on the grounds that he was a little more and he gets in a fight for an inch of the body. Statham throw knives and trying to compete with Sylvester Stallone and Mickey Rourke, and more – is working with his fists on the love front, caressing a little-known person who stole his heart queen.
Founder of all this kinoprazdnika Stallone, as stated in the film, looks like a “cast steel bar. He – the main star of “The Expendables” and rightfully attracts to itself all the attention, even in scenes where he is involved not only. No less cool look the other titans – Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis, though, and appear in the frame just for a minute.
In “The Expendables” is a welcome screen Schwarzenegger and Stallone meeting at which for the sake of present and Bruce Willis. And let this meeting took off with a strong late – Stallone looks tired, old, and Schwarzenegger is aiming for the presidency – she still felt a landmark cinema event and well worth it. Already for the sake of this meeting was worth to remove “Expendables,” although other sentimental and tremulous moments in them many more.
Fly in the ointment: “The Expendables” not so impressive as a fighter. Final series of “Rambo” Stallone learn from frenzied and cheerful. And here – sometimes the camera work podkachala (many fights out of focus, dark), the place of (few spectacular shots). The plan of action “Expendables” pleasing, perhaps, only two really spectacular scenes: one of them, Stallone and Staten two-engined aircraft in pieces spread the pier with the soldiers, another Terry Crews heavy machine gun in the natural beef crumbles crowd of enemies.
But the film – absolutely not about action, which becomes especially clear in the final. The main thing in those meetings that we see in “The Expendables”, and who smiles like a fool and his heart with joy fades – no throwing knives, clubs and fire fighting. The main thing – poetry.
