The Expendables is an American series of ensemble action films written by and starring Sylvester Stallone and originally created by David Callaham. The film series itself was created to pay homage to the blockbuster action films of the 1980s and 90s and also pays gratitude to the action stars of those decades, as well as more recent stars in action.

The Expendables (2010)
A group of elite mercenaries who carry out all sorts of missions, ranging from assassination to rescue, are deployed to a South American island, Vilena, to overthrow a Latin American dictator.

The Expendables 2 (2012)
The Expendables accept another mission from Mr. Church to make up for losses caused by the mission in Vilena, but they end up in a conflict with a rival mercenary group, the Sangs, and their newest and youngest member is murdered by the Sang’s leader.

The Expendables 3 (2014)
The Expendables come face to face with the team’s co-founder Conrad Stonebanks. Ross was forced to kill Stonebanks after he became a ruthless arms trader, but Stonebanks survived and has now made it his mission to destroy The Expendables.


The Expendables was one of those movie series that you would dream about as a kid. What would happen if all the great action heroes gathered together. Some good some bad but all in the same film. The expendables are like the avengers of movies. Just like the avengers would change the cast of characters depending on the situation so too does the expendables. I expected a series of b rated movies with b rated action but on-the-whole this has not been the case. Yes, there have been the inevitable stumbles but not for the whole film. The expendables are a joy to watch. Each character plays to type very well. I would encourage anyone who wants to just have a little fun to watch these movies. You will not be dissapointed…
