After all the talk, they have finally released the trailer of The Expendables, The Stallone flick that was supposed to unite Stallone, Bruce Willis and Schwarzenegger for the first time. Well I hope the scene in the trailer isn’t the only part, because they just blew the whole film with the 3 biggest action heroes on the screen together in the trailer!
In my opinion I think it looks like a good ol’ action flick from the yore, as in, the days of. The roster is quite impressive, and I will say now before all the hype for this film hits the fan, that YOU ARE ALL SELLOUTS!! Remember when we were little, and all the action films were these guys against insane odds?
30 men all missing with their guns and then Stallone firing once in a strafe motion and all the bad guys falling down dead. I think it’s high time we have a RIDICULOUSLY Over the top action film again. You all forget it was the way we were raised. It was all there was available until we started getting Matrixy films and high concept action. The Expendables will bring us back to the basics, hopefully. Check out the trailer and plot synopsis after the jump. Via /Film

THE EXPENDABLES is a hard-hitting action/thriller about a group of mercenaries hired to infiltrate a South American country and overthrow its ruthless dictator. Once the mission begins, the men realize things aren’t quite as they appear, finding themselves caught in a dangerous web of deceit and betrayal. With their mission thwarted and an innocent life in danger, the men struggle with an even tougher challenge – one that threatens to destroy this band of brothers.

Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) is a man with nothing to lose. Fearless and void of emotion, he is the leader, the sage and the strategist of this tight-knit band of men who live on the fringe. His only attachment is to his pickup truck, his seaplane and his team of loyal modern-day warriors. His is a true cynic who describes what he does as “removing those hard to get at stains.” The team behind him is made up of Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), former SAS and a savant with anything that has a blade; Yin Yang (Jet Li), a master at close-quarter combat; Hale Caesar (Terry Crews), who has known Barney for ten years and is a long-barrel weapons specialist; Toll Road (Randy Couture), a skilled demolitions expert and considered the intellect of the group; and Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), a combat veteran and an expert in precision sniping who struggles with his own demons.
