You’ve got to give these guys credit, they take a lickin’ and keep on tickin’! Just when we thought they’d hang up their guns and move to the tropics to retire, here comes Sly Stallone and company: Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Eric Roberts, Steve Austin, and Mickey Rourke, proving the action hero in them is alive and well and kicking butt!
The story is simple, an aging group of mercenaries takes on jobs that others feel are too dangerous. One job comes up that could have the whole world in jeopardy, and against all odds, these guys manage to take care of it, and come out unscathed. Sylvester Stallone co-write the script and directed the movie that includes all of his old pals. Fun to watch. The only disturbing scenes are really the close-up shots which show way too much plastic surgery and collagen. Rated R for violence, lots of explosions and gun fights – to be expected in this genre.
