The basis behind The Expendables is so simple and at the same time so crazy, I’m surprised they didn’t try it sooner: create a film starring every single action star you can get your hands on and have a story where they all have to work together against a common foe. It’s insanely brilliant when you think about it. (I haven’t gotten the chance to see it all the way through yet, but the parts I have seen, I loved!!)

The plot follows an elite group of mercenaries led by Barney Ross (Stallone) and the chaos that ensues as a routine contract to overthrow a dictator becomes anything and everything but. Aside from the all-star cast, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger have small cameos as well.
