The Expendables Movie Review

by Gunther Heinrich, 14 May 2011 in Reviews

Stallone was eager to prove it to everybody.

And while he was at it, Stallone made a massive mistake: when you get the chance to bring together some of the most well-known action stars into one big action movie, for the love of god be ironic, witty and funny.
