It’s hard to know what to make of The Expendables franchise at this point—the first film, while it had its moments, felt a lot like the nondescript straight-to-VHS ‘80s films that it was trying to rise above; the second film felt more like what the first film wanted to be, i.e., an pretty stellar and satisfying men (and woman)-on-a-mission flick; advertisements...

Despite the fact that The Expendables 3 won’t be seeing a release until August 15, 2014, and the film itself just completed shooting this summer, we’ve already got a teaser trailer for a movie that is now still nine months away.  While it doesn’t showcase much action, it does show off the fact that the film stars just about every ‘80s action movie star ever (minus Bruce...

Homefront: Movie Review

Published by

The combination of Jason Statham, James Franco, Winona Ryder, Kate Bosworth and a script from Sylvester Stallone sounds like a recipe for something interesting, if not either brilliant or terrible. Alas, the end result -- the movie Homefront --  is surprisingly not good-bad or bad-bad, but boring.

Escape Plan: Movie Review

Published by

escape-plan-1
If Escape Plan was released back in the late 80s/early 90s, this would be the perfect amount of cheese and star power that action fans dream of, but this is the year 2013. The new action movie brings a couple of faded action stars together under one limp wrist story that takes way too long to get us towards the ridiculous action scenes between these two that many of...

Because the cast of the upcoming The Expendables 3 isn’t bursting at the seams quite enough with a roster of disparate actors (so far: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Kellan Lutz, Ronda Rousey, Victor Ortiz, and Glen...

If the plot featured in the Grudge Match trailer seems a trifle familiar (a Sylvester Stallone-starring film about aging boxers who get the opportunity to prove themselves to modern audiences because of a boxing simulation video that goes viral and piques the public’s interest), well, perhaps you’ve heard of a 2006 film called Rocky Balboa: a Sylvester...

'Homefront' Trailer: Jason Statham Fights James Franco (Really)

Published by

Homefront
Regardless if the movie is good or not, Homefront is a fascinating combination of things. You wouldn't normally expect Jason Statham to be squaring up against James Franco, nor would you expect that film to be written by but not featuring in any way Sylvester Stallone. Is that enough to bring in audiences? Who's to say, but the film definitely has our attention with...

Ol’ Sylvester Stallone—the guy just can’t seem to help himself.  Ever since Rocky Balboa came out in 2006 to surprisingly decent reviews and box office, Stallone has been in full-on revivalist mode—churning out a Rambo sequel in 2008, as well as reviving the gloriously big and dumb action films of the 1980s with his The...

After all the hubbub concerning Bruce Willis not being willing to sleepwalk his way through his The Expendables 3 cameo for anything less than $4 million, we finally have a full cast roster and plot summery for the third film in the aging-action-stars-punch-each-other franchise.  And, if the film is directed by Patrick Hughes with a willingness to laugh at itself,...

News has been coming down hard and heavy from the pre-production world of The Expendables 3, the sequel to—you guessed it—The Expendables and The Expendables 2.  First came the news that Bruce Willis was mysteriously bailing on the project, only to be somewhat shockingly replaced by Harrison Ford, of all people.  That was...

'The Expendables 3' Will Not Have Bruce Willis Because Of Money Issues

There are some actors whose star has grown so big that they're able to ask for a little bit of a heftier sum of money in order to appear in a random movie. It's just one of those strange portions of the business, the kind that makes you wish you were an A-list action movie star like Bruce Willis who can demand a bigger paycheck in order to appear in some of The...

Throughout 2012, Sylvester Stallone noted that his casting wishlist for The Expendables 3 (which included such names as Nicholas Cage as well as the hard-to-imagine Clint Eastwood) was topped off by none other than Harrison Ford.  That’s right—Han Solo and Indiana Jones himself.  And now, via Twitter, Stallone has announced that he did indeed get his wish, as well as the fact...

Edge of Darkness - Mel Gibson
Due in part to the fact that his age is advancing, and also because of the whole hating minorities thing, and just maybe because of laying the blame for every war ever on the feet of the Jewish populace, Mel Gibson has begun to slip into the career phase in which he stops playing the hero in films and instead gets stuck with being the villain.  Case in point: his turn as “eccentric arms...

For those five or six of you who are still waiting for the full-length Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger cinematic-team up that would have been awesome in the 1980s, pretty cool in the 1990s, kinda cheesy in the 2000s, and never fully capitalized on in The Expendables film, well, your wait has just gotten a little shorter.  While the action giants’ big...

For years, fans of cheesy 1980s action cinema dreamed of the day in which hyper-muscular and monosyllabic stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone would star together in what could only be the greatest cheesy action film ever.  But then it never happened in the 1980s.  Or the 1990s.  Or the 2000s.  Finally, in 2010, we got The Expendables, in which Schwarzenegger popped...
