Default The Expendables

I saw it last night and I loved it. It was a great movie. I was a little skeptical at first how it was going to be with all the characters but they made it work. It didnt really focus on one of the characters for too long.

Dolph Lundgren played a pretty good meth-head (he probably has experience). Jet Li had some funny lines too. There was some funny parts also. The whole scene with Stallone, Willis, and Arnold was brilliant. Terry Crews with the auto shotgun fucks shit up!

I agree, it was a surprisingly good movie. It was a real tribute to the Action genre.

There were so many inside references, and the scene with Arnold, Bruce, and Stallone was a classic.

"What's wrong with your friend?" "He wants to be president". LOL!

The AA-12 with the Frag 12 round is a beast, and in the situation that they used it would have performed just as depicted.

I was sooooo happy to see it in the film.

BTW, Lundgren is clean and sober, and apparently a good guy in real life.

haha yeah they're seats that move and shake with the movie. I work at a theater that has them. There are 28 theaters in the country that have em, 2 are in MI. They are very high tech and not like those Disney World "ride/shows". Check out their website, they have home theater set-ups as well as gaming set-ups.

I already checked it out. Pretty cool! I paid 10.50 to see Inception the other day (BAD ASS Movie as well!) and that was a regular theater so i can only imagine the cost of a DBOX movie.

haha yeah. Our theater's evening tickets are like $7.50. A 3-D movie + $2. A DBOX movie +$8. Luckily we don't have it setup for 3D and DBOX.....yet. haha it'll then be $17.50 to see a movie :P
