    Expendables is the closest thing to movie Viagra yet invented. It's reprehensible. It's stoopid violent. It's a lot of unholy fun.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    The way that Stallone directs, though, every machete thrust and relentless round of bullet spray is staged with a certain undeniable...conviction.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    Delivers pretty much exactly what its audience wants and expects: big, dumb, campy fun so deliriously, comically macho, it's remarkable that no one in the cast died of testosterone poisoning.

  • Sheri Linden

    An effective mix of lean and over-the-top, The Expendables is often preposterous, but it achieves the immediacy of a graphic novel without the overdone mythology.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    The three icons ham it up, do some verbal towel-snapping and have fun, which also describes most of this self-conscious adventure movie.

  • Ann Hornaday

    A super-stoked action thriller

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Genevieve Harrison

    More The Wild Geese than The Wild Bunch, The Expendables is not a wasted opportunity, but more one not fully exploited.

    Empire Full Review
  • Pete Hammond

    A who's who of classic action stars light up the screen for pure combustible entertainment in Sly Stallone's The Expendables, a sort of "Dirty Dozen" meets "Inglourious Basterds"--and then some.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Nick Pinkerton

    This is action as timeless as the reptilian brain-and if The Expendables is no classic, for about 20 minutes, it blowed up real good.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    If you want to see old-fashioned nonstop mayhem with stars so venerable that "The Leathernecks" (and I don't mean Marines) might be an alternative title, reviews are going to be superfluous. If you don't want to go, no review can change your mind.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Mark Jenkins

    Next to the hopelessly inexpressive Stallone and the English-impaired Li, Statham emerges as the movie's principal wit. But the script furnishes him with only a few deadpan quips. Besides, it's no great accomplishment to be the funniest guy in a Sylvester Stallone flick.

    NPR Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    At one point Rourke delivers a monologue about his time in Bosnia, and the conviction the actor brings to the occasion throws the movie completely out of whack. What's actual acting doing in a movie like this?

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    The trailers already have given away the "surprise" cameos in The Expendables, so try not to blink when Stallone goes into a church (shades of John Woo) to meet his mystery boss, played by a bald-pated, trademark smirking Bruce Willis.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    And give credit to Stallone: He just leaves the camera on Rourke, in the tightest of close-ups, cutting only once, to himself, for a one-second reaction shot, but keeping the focus on his actor. A great actor.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    In the final analysis, The Expendables is little more than an ordinary, uninspired action feature.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Stephen Cole

    Still, what makes Sly's new film fascinating is that, 35 years after he created and starred in the ultimate little-boy fantasy, "Rocky," Stallone remains such a guileless, big-dreaming innocent.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The Expendables feels, well -- disposable, a movie whose nostalgia isn't enough to make this 50. caliber trip down Memory Lane worth the fake napalm.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    I love a good, brainless action flick as much as the next alpha male, but this time I had a whole lot of trouble laughing along.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    If anyone gets a career boost from The Expendables it will be Dolph Lundgren, playing a drug-addicted loose Howitzer booted from the team and flipping to the bad side.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    What you will find is both familiar in its contours and unique in its casting: the definitive alterkocker action picture. Call it "The Old Dogs of War," or "Incontinent Basterds."

    Time Full Review
  • Joshua Katzman

    Stallone directs a bloodbath that borrows liberally from such male-bonding classics as Robert Aldrich's "The Dirty Dozen" and Sam Peckinpah's "The Wild Bunch," but offers not a whiff of the tragic fatalism and astute critique of machismo that inform those superior dramas.

  • Shawn Levy

    Brainless, witless, inept, ugly and crude,

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Andy Klein

    The opening action sequence, unrelated to the main story, is nicely done, but after that it's all downhill.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    You see this cast, you expect to see a lot of violent action. And in that regard, The Expendables delivers, and then some. In this case, then, the old saying applies: Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    The thought behind this body-splattering nostalgia trip is unformed and stagnant.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    It's big, it's loud, it's dumb, and all things considered, it's not completely un-fun.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Might more aptly be described as Bad Kurosawa, Bad Peckinpah or Bad Leone. Which might be a way of saying that it's better-than-average Stallone. I can't quite say that it's not bad: it is bad! But not entirely in a bad way.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    A nearly incoherent all-stars-on-deck actioner that plays like "Grown Ups" on nitro or a brutish, blue-collar "Ocean's Eleven."

    Variety Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    So why oh why is The Expendables such a limp-dick bust? Because Stallone forgets to include non-spazzy direction, a coherent plot, dialogue that actors can speak without cringing, stunts that don't fizzle, blood that isn't digital and an animating spirit that might convince us to give a damn.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Jason Statham gives the best performance. Dolph Lundgren gets the best character arc. Terry Crews gets the best gun. Jet Li gets the best kill (you'll know it when you see it).Arnold Schwarzenegger gets the best cameo. And Sylvester Stallone? He gets the blame.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Incoherent, inept, testosterone-drenched mess, which is very much the brain-dead male equivalent of "Sex and the City 2."

    New York Post Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Sadistic mess of a movie.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The whole exercise has the trying-too-hard vibe of a bad toupee.

    Movieline Full Review
  • John DeVore

    There's never any real danger in the movie, which makes The Expendables feel like one of those chummy Rat Pack flicks that were just excuses for a bunch of pals to get together and goof off.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    The Expendables is savage yet inert, and breathtakingly sleazy in its lack of imagination.
