Here is the plot description for “The Expendables”:

The only life they’ve known is war. The only loyalty they have is to each other. They are the expendables: leader and mastermind Barney Ross (Stallone), former SAS blade expert Lee Christmas (Statham), hand-to-hand combat specialist Yin Yang (Li), long-barrel weapons specialist Hale Caesar (Crews), demolitions expert Toll Road (Couture) and precision sniper Gunner Jensen (Lundgren).

Living life in the fringes of the law, these hardened mercenaries take on what appears to be a routine assignment: a covert, CIA-funded operation to infiltrate the South American country of Vilena and overthrow its ruthless dictator General Garza (David Zayas). But when their job is revealed to be a suicide mission, the men are faced with a deadly choice that might redeem their souls or destroy their brotherhood forever.

Director, co-writer and star Sylvester Stallone brings together a powerhouse cast of action superstars – never before seen together in one film – in Lionsgate’s hard-hitting action thriller “The Expendables”. The film stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Eric Roberts, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, David Zayas, Terry Crews and Mickey Rourke.

“The Expendables” was directed by Sylvester Stallone from a story by David Callaham and screenplay by David Callaham and Sylvester Stallone and is produced by Avi Lerner, John Thompson and Kevin King Templeton. Lionsgate and Millennium Films present this Nu Image production.

Powerhouse Cast

No, most of the time the movie is really lousy! Sometimes if the actors did the movie just because of a good scrip or director, then it’s really good.

Powerhouse Cast

I think there are no guarantees in the film industry. But I do think such a cast would lead people to expect to be impressed and/or entertained by the film.

Quantity not Quality

A powerhouse cast of A-list celebrities does not guarantee a quality film. It does guarantee a huge quantity though, as it will likely make a lot of money!

Powrhouse Cast

I don’t think a powerhouse cast guarantees a quality film. You also have to have a great script and director but even then there are no guarantees.

No, a movie’s cast

No, a movie’s cast doesn’t guarantee a quality film, you still have a script that at the least allows the stars’ personalities to shine. If the stars get a chance to shine, the movie can at least be enjoyable even if the story isn’t great. I guess that would qualify as ‘quality film’, if not a great one.

Nope. It depends on the storyline, directing and acting. Good ppl guarantee nothing.

  • Sherlock Holmes with David Arquette (teaser)

    CHICAGO – Different isn’t bad and might be great, but you’d better have an irrefutable reason to change what was never broken. Campy being the only word to accurately convey this alternate-reality version of Sherlock Holmes with an original script, writer Greg Kramer and director Andrew Shaver try too hard to be different without ever figuring out why.

  • Merry Widow, The

    CHICAGO – Standing up at the Lyric Opera house in Chicago is unusual before a show. But in this case, it was the night after a tragedy, and the operetta “The Merry Widow” – set in Paris, France, in 1905 – was about to unfold. The orchestra struck up La Marseillaise, a reminder that we’ll always have Paris.
