Fact: Movies starring wrestlers are usually not good. Fact: movies starring wrestlers and MMA fighters are almost guaranteed to be bad. Fact: movies starring Sylvester Stallone, a wrestler (Stone Cold Steve Austin), an MMA fighter (Randy “The Natural” Couture), Jet Li, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, and ERIC ROBERTS is guaranteed to be mind-blowingly, epically, and hilariously bad. Go ahead, re-read that list real quick. It’s unbelievable. Enter The Expendables, a film about an elite team of commandos trying to take down some kind of South American dictator or something. Honestly, it doesn’t matter what it’s about. By the time it got to Sly doing his best John Wayne impression the trailer had me hooked. This thing looks like a direct-to-Cinemax movie from the 90s. In other words, classic so bad it’s good.
Unfortunately The Expendables doesn’t hit theaters until August 10th, 2010.
