Let’s all admit why we’re excited to see “The Expendables” in spite of its PG-13 rating and borderline-fanboy crafting: because it looks so deliciously like an 80s action movie. Today, all our big summer movies are adaptations of comics and toys and videogames etc. But the 80s had a big stupid flair and for the same reason we like hair metal bands and cheesy television, we dig thesekinds ofmovies.
But they still take a lot of work and it’s great to see director/star Sylvester Stallone so energetic even though the guy is in his sixties. It may be wrong to hope for a big dumb fun action movies, but Stallone doesn’t seem to have any problems about delivering that and if there’s only one bad thing about this video, it’s that it’s going to make the film’s release date seem even further away.
