The Expendables – The Granddad’s army set to invade SA theatres
Next week is the South African release date for the new Stallone’s movie which was a roaring success in other countries.
The action veterans (in Afrikaans afgetreede brekers) assemble a Granddad’s army to overthrow a cruel dictator.
I think the plot will probably not be something new but it will nice to see how these action icons can still do their stuff.
The film is about a group of elite mercenaries, tasked with a mission to overthrow a Latin American dictator. It pays tribute to the blockbuster action films of the 1980s and early 1990s, and stars an array of action veterans from those decades, including Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, Jet Li, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger (the latter two in cameo roles), as well as more recent stars such as Jason Statham, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Gary Daniels, and Steve Austin.
The film received mixed reviews from critics but was very successful commercially, opening at number one at the box office in the United States the United Kingdom as well as China.
