The Expendables teaser trailer online

TheExpendables.jpgWorking on my week off, it's great, but it's made even sweeter when you have things like The Expendables teaser trailer to write about, and today I have because it's online.

Okay, it's not fantastic, let's face it. Right now all it's got going for it are the big names, some good one liners, and plenty of explosions. If that's made you happy then you were expecting far less of the film than I was.

The teaser trailer for The Expendables is like a brochure of action scenes, random clips from the film, however the good news is that it shows all the cool cast members including Sylvester Stallone, Eric Roberts, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke and David Zayas, as well as the other cast members.

It looks good for that, and there are some cool lines and moments in there too, however the rest of it are a seemingly random collection of clips that are full of explosions, gun firing, and the characters looking good.

Oh don't get me wrong the prospect of Lundgren fighting Li is exciting, although we all know who would win that fight, but the way it's shot in these short few clips has me wondering if the trailer cut it in the Hollywood fast cut fight style, or if that's the way it's going to be in the film, and that would be disappointing.

As for the rest, well I guess we'll have to wait and see. There are hints of the cool factor of seeing these guys do their thing both individually and together, but they are so random that it just doesn't gel well and there's nothing coherent to it, so you just get flashes of promise.

Have a look at the trailer and see what you think.
