This movie is a lot of fun! A guilty pleasure movie in every sense of the word and an action movie fan’s wet dream, The Expendables is filled with solid action, lots of explosions, and plenty of action stars both past and present.
Onto the Blu-ray special features, which are really cool and as much fun as the movie itself. Here’s a quick look along with some comments:
Audio Commentary with Sylvester Stallone
Stallone wrote and directed The Expendables and in the commentary he talks about how he came up with the idea, cast the movie, and how many of the films stunts and action sequences were done.
BonusView: The Expendables: Ultimate Recon Mode
It’s the audio commentary with Stallone, behind-the-scene footage, and the film all at once. A must-see for those who love this movie and want to truly experience the film on a whole new level.
Comic-Con 2010 Panel
A 45-minute Q & A panel with the cast and crew of The Expendables as Comic-Con 2010 in San Diego, Ca. Hosted by Harry Knowles from Ain’t It Cool News. Very fun, funny, and entertaining.
Inferno: The Making of The Expendables
A four-part, 90-minute, behind-the-scenes look at the making of film that also gives us a closer look at Stallone’s influences as a child when it came to his love for action and adventure films. A very cool and insightful documentary.
From the Ashes: Post-Production Documentary
A 30 minute look at how all the elements from the stunts, effects, sound, music, and story come together through the magic of Post-Production. Includes interviews with Stallone, and the film’s editors: Ken Blackwell and Paul Harb.
Could also be called: “When Good Props Go Bad.” Fun times.
One scene. 45-seconds. I see why it was cut.
Posters, and Trailers, and Spots, oh my!
The Expendables kicks ass! Check it out!
