Barney Ross leads the "Expendables", a band of highly skilled mercenaries including knife enthusiast Lee Christmas, martial arts expert Yin Yang, heavy weapons specialist Hale Caesar, demolitionist Toll Road and loose-cannon sniper Gunner Jensen. When the group is commissioned by the mysterious Mr. Church to assassinate the merciless dictator of a small South American island, Barney and Lee head to the remote locale to scout out their opposition. Once there, they meet with local rebel Sandra and discover the true nature of the conflict engulfing the city. When they escape the island and Sandra stays behind, Ross must choose to either walk away and save his own life – or attempt a suicidal rescue mission that might just save his soul.

Did You Know?
Dolph Lundgren described the film as "an old-school, kick-ass action movie where people are fighting with knives and shooting at each other."
The final time that Barney Ross gets into the cockpit of the plane, he gets into the seat while wearing a tactical vest. When he is shown from the front, he no longer has the vest on, but is wearing a t-shirt.

Sex and the city,…. for men!
I laugh at many of the hate comments as what the hell did they expect?
a romantic comedy? award winning performances? deep dialogues? Freudian
complex character study?
common give me a break!!! from the beginning you should know this is
all about guns,explosives and oneliners from start to finish and homage

and this is simply exactly what you get.
while i will never understand what most woman think so great about sex
and the city( fashion? shoes? what the hell?)
so this is for men/boys who will be thrilled to see their old heroes
from back in the days once more on screen kicking everybody's ass! (oh
and no i also like deep intellectual movies, its all about
