All through the 80's and early 90's, men were spoilt for choice when it came to Action Movies. The names we already know and which are too numerous to mention, provided the balance between adult male and female cinema needs.

R-Rated, violent, chauvinistic and no-holds barred. We didnt know how good we had it.

For every romantic comedy and drama that our girlfriends and wives dragged us kicking and screaming to, and where we sat there bored, confused and a little bit insulted - we had Sly, Arnold and Co. to return the favour.

Then for some reason things changed. RomComs and Dramas stayed the same, we underwent the same torture at the hands of Hugh Grant and Meg Ryan - but OUR films were fewer and further between.

PG-13 started appearing on all action films. They started getting watered down, cut to pieces by the studio. Pandering to women with 'strong' female characters and 'love' stories. The violence, the swearing were all now gone. Real stunts, explosions and fights were replaced by CGI fakeness and wired nonsense to please little kids.

Our Heroes were being hijacked by the studios.

We had to rely on straight to DVD and low budget affairs to see our action the way we wanted it, our girlfriends and wives with a smug smirk on their faces as the planned our next trip to see Atonement or something just as bad.

This film will return the balance to movies - the Yin is back to combat the Yang - girlfriends and wives will desperately be trying to infiltrate the studio in a bid to alter this film, water it down, dumb it down, sabotage the marketing.

But they cant stop The Expendables.

The Action Movie is on its way back.

I thought this was about the band The Expendables. But w/e, sounds cool.


Same, I'm very disappointed.
Nine planets surround the sun
Only one does the sun embrace
Upon this watered one
So much we take for granted


So let us sleep outside tonight
Lay down in our mother's arms
For here we can rest safely

If done right this could be the greatest action movie of all time, the only thing that could possibly make it better is Bruce Lee.

Holy moley.

That's like every ethnicity of kick-your-face-in in one movie.
This is my signature. There are many like it but this one is MINE.

I'd really enjoy a Bruce Willis appearance. Bring back the Yippee Kiyay, Motherfucker.

Not Jason Statham, I was almost excited over this, what with Rambo directing and Terminator starring.
