The Expendables trailer online
Although right now I should be saying “Wow, that totally blew me away”, I'm not, and I'm really glad I'm not, I think that's a good sign. The Expendables has all the right boxes ticked that should make me do just that and you would expect a trailer that goes over the top with “oohs” and “ahs”, but it doesn't.
What it does instead is present things a little darker, a little more human, and a little more about people. Rather than an eighties action film, I think we're looking at something with a little more intelligence. So while the explosive wow might not be there, there's something better in its place, something longer burning.
Have a look at the trailer for The Expendables below and see what you think:
You can see the original over at Yahoo Movies where they also have it in high definition.
Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, Steve Austin, Terry Crews and Mickey Rourke make up the team, and they look superb in it too. I'm really glad that Statham seems to have a more up front role.
Let's not forget seeing Eric Roberts, Dolph Lundgren and David Zayas. Now you see that list has me saying “wow”, but the trailer is getting deeper than that superficial surprise, and that's a damn good thing.
