Rambo5 with more talking and help from friends

A lot of video game playing boys are going to want to see it. It plays like an M rated game with much killing of the "bad guys". If your kids are on the mature side and can handle some blood and gore, they should be fine. The movie goes pretty fast through the blood. Language is bad at times but not excesive. Corny jokes. The usual Stallone stuff. My son really liked it.

Did the reviewer even watch the movie past the first 15 minutes? Not to spoil the movie or anything, but that is one of the key plot twists of the movie, how they decide to go against what they have done for years of being mercenaries and fight for a cause... next time try watching the movie you review. Great role model of men willing to stand up for those incapable of defending themselves

Stupid, skip it

This movie was HORRIBLE! The acting was terrible and the plot made me cringe. The action sequences are somehow not entertaining. This film is basically an excuse to show a lot of exploding heads and stabbings. There is a lot of gore, including a guy getting ripped in half. Also, there is a scene where a woman is tortured by waterboarding. I would rate it R for strong bloody action violence throughout, language and a scene of torture.

Blood seems unreal. But what makes it Restricted was the water torture scene and Bruce Willis says the F bomb 10 times in five minutes

Very Violent Action Flick

This is a very violent movie, most killings have bloody results. Little language. The violence is the most explicit part, so teenagers should be able to handle it.

This movie had good action sequences, but bad plot

This movie is not a very good movie but if you want to just sit back and watch the action go ahead. A movie for action fans.

Violence, but not really that bad.

Yes, there was a lot of violence, but what do you expect from a Sylvester Stalone movie? The plot of the story wasn't the best, but it was a good movie. I really wouldn't be worried about letting kids watch this movie if they don't become crazy when they see violence. There are also some parts which are "gorey" (knife stuck through neck) and a part with water boarding torture, but that's over really quick. It's a good movie overall.

The Expendables Movie Review

Even though this movie is very good it is very violent at the same time. The group of main characters, played by Sylvester Stallone, Jet Li, Jason Statham etc, have one objective in mind. Protect the good and kill the bad. Kill 'em real good. There is lots of shooting and stabbing throughout the movie - including one part in the first scene where a mercenary gets his upper body blown off by a grenade launcher. There is also a lot of swearing throughout the movie. There is one scene in the movie in which the female character gets brutally interrogated and is tortured using water boarding. Overall, The Expendables is an excellent movie but at the same time it is a very violent and mature movie.
