Explosions, mayhem and a good double tot of napalm!
There has been news of an action movie in the pipeline that is set to blow us away on such a level as to be the creation of a new action classic.
How long has it been since we had an action movie that became iconic? Perhaps the most recent attempt that made us sit up and take notice was Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, which took a novel spin on the whole Nazi war movie theme. However the latest movie to promise big things is The Expendables, which will be directed and starred in by Sylvester Stallone.
The basic premise for The Expendables is that it is about a team of mercenaries led into some South American country and take out its evil dictator that is making the lives of its people a living hell. The team led by Stallone’s Character, head out on a mission that is supposed to be routine, but along the way all sorts of twist and turns take their mission on a very different course. Ok, so it may not sound overly impressive or even original…hell it sounds like it could be on e-tv’s Friday Action Night LOL. However, it’s not the basic movie plot that draws me to this action flick, it’s the actors that will be supporting Sylvester.
