2010’S THE EXPENDABLES IS A BULLET RIDDEN, EXPLOSION FILLED, MAGNIFICENT SEVEN STYLE ACTION MOVIE WITH AN ALL-STAR CAST THATS A THROW BACK TO THE 1980’S HEYDAY OF THESE TYPES OF FILMS. NOW WITH THAT BEING SAID THIS IS A MOVIE THAT WILL NEVER BE CONSIDERED A CAR MOVIE BY ANYONES STANDARDS BUT LETS TAKE A LITTLE BIT OF A CLOSER LOOK. ASK ANY GEARHEAD WHAT THEY REMEMBER MOST ABOUT THIS MOVIE AND STALLONE’S 55′ FORD F-100 WILL BE THE FIRST THING OUT OF THEIR MOUTH.

WHAT STARTS WITH STALLONE AND JET LI CRUISING DOWN THE ROAD DISCUSSING THEIR WORKING RELATIONSHIP QUICKLY CHANGES WHEN A GROUP OF BADDIES HEADED BY DOLPH LUNDGREN AMBUSHES THEM AT A TRAFFIC LIGHT. NARROWLY ESCAPING THANKS TO BULLETPROOF GLASS AND PLATING (HANDY THING TO HAVE WHEN YOU’RE A MERCENARY) STALLONE LETS THE PONIES UNDER THE HOOD DO A LITTLE TALKING.

WHAT ENTAILS IS A GAME OF CAT AND MOUSE BETWEEN A FORD BRONCO (O.J. WOULD BE SO PROUD) DRIVEN BY LUNDGREN AND SLY’S WICKED BLACK 55′. MOVING THRU PARKING LOTS AND BACK OUT INTO THE OPEN ROAD, THE CHASE ITSELF CLOCKS IN AT JUST UNDER THREE MINUTES LONG. BUT IT’S A THRILL RIDE ALL THE WAY WITH JET LI JUMPING INTO THE BACK OF THE F-100 AND TRADING GUNFIRE WITH LUNDGRENS GANG. A SEMI AND A WELL TIMED GARBAGE TRUCK BOTH PLAY A PART IN THIS EXTREME CASE OF ROAD RAGE THAT FINALLY ENDS IN AN ABANDONED WAREHOUSE WITH BOTH LEADS PLAYING CHICKEN WITH THEIR RESPECTIVE VEHICLES.

ALL IN ALL A FUN LITTLE CHASE THAT BENEFITS FROM THE STAR POWER INVOLVED AND NEW AGE SURROUND SOUND WHERE YOU CAN REALLY HEAR THAT FORD V8 ROAR. DEFINITELY WORK CHECKING OUT ESPECIALLY IF YOU’VE NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE. GOOD STUFF HERE.
