What It’s All About:

Barney Ross and his team of highly trained mercenaries “The Expendables” are offered a job on the island of Vilena in the Gulf of Mexico. The team need to overthrow the brutal leader General Gaza and restore peace to the island. As the misson unfolds the team learn more about themselves and what it means to fight in a unit together.

The Final Verdict:

The Expendables is a bad movie. Stallone feeds audiances a sub-par story that is in no way compelling, lazy dialogue and relies heavily on explosions to tell the story for him. This is what makes The Expendables so much fun to watch. Filled with corny one liners, a testosterone filled cast of action stars from days gone by and thrilling stunts not involving CGI; The Expendables offers a chance to switch off your brain and just have fun at the cinema. Sure it lacks an oscar winning story and performances but it sure does have a lot of balls to the wall action.

Directed By: Tony Scott
Starring: Bruce Willis, Damon Wayans, Halle Berry

What It’s All About:

Joe Hallenback is an ex secret service agent who was famous for saving the President’s life. Jimmy Dix is an ex professional football player who was banned for life on gambling charges. Joe’s life is turned upside down as he is thrown into a case that teams him up with an unlikely parter in Jimmy, as they fight to find out who killed Jimmy’s girlfriend and Joe’s best friend.

The Final Verdict:

Bruce Willis dials in another quality performance as a leading man in the action genre, slipping his trademark one liners in vein of his other popular Die Hard franchise, it’s such a shame the same can’t be said for his sidekick who has an on and off performance. Tony Scott has done well to create a classic action film that will be remembered as one of the greats of the early 90’s.

4/5


Directed By: Kevin Smith
Starring: Bruce Willis, Tracey Morgan, Seann William Scott

What It’s All About:
Jimmy and Paul have been partners in the NYPD for nine years. After they botch a drug deal they are put on suspension without pay, which is bad news for Jimmy who has to pay for his daughters extravagant wedding. He decides to trade in an extremely rare baseball card to raise the cash, but he falls victim to a robbery when trying to sell the card. While tracking down the location of his rare card, Jimmy and Paul stumble into a major drug ring, and it’s up to them to bring them all to justice.

The Final Verdict:
Kevin Smith’s first attempt at an action/comedy is a decent one that is let down by one factor, Tracey Morgan. While Bruce Willis holds his own in a role that seemed tailored to the bad arse that he truly is, Morgan’s overacting really ruins certain scenes of this otherwise decent movie. This movie isn’t going to stick out as anything more than a little bit of harmless fun.
