The Expendables (2010)
Dir - Sylvester Stallone

This does have the joy of the 80s action throwback but feels a little long with some very out of place moments. The fight scenes are great and some of the other gunplay, and numerous explosions, are quite enjoyable to watch. One thing that really bugs me is the less than stellar CGI mainly for blood. I snickered every time it was used. It might be a bit cheaper/quicker/easier to use a computer over a practical effect but it looks absolutely ridiculous. Stallone looks a little deflated and I wish JCVD would have said yes. Maybe for The Expendables 2!
