This isn’t exactly a trailer, so it doesn’t qualify for a Trailer Talk (there’s plenty of time for that in the future), but it is a look at the highly-anticipated movie, “The Expendables.”
Once you heard the cast — which includes Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Mickey Rourke and Dolph Lundgren — you should have known what to expect … and this clip provides it. And I suspect that whether you think that’s a good thing or a bad thing has far more to do with your personal preferences than it does with this video.
Do you want guys having “witty” conversations with each other while in battle? Do you want people jumping while yelling as something explodes behind them? Do you want highly-coreographed fights where the good guy is throttled within an inch of his life but ultimately prevails? Do you like groan-inducing one liners (particularly when the jokes comes at the expense of a recently deceased villain)?
If your answers to most or all of these questions is “yes,” then, boy, do I have the movie for you.
Oh, and as for me, I’ll see you in the threater on opening night.
