"Running from mistakes in his past, a man finds a secret book with ancient powers – a tool that can give him the answers he seeks. But a dark force has been awoken, one that will stop at nothing to reclaim the sacred text. When the book is stolen, an age-old battle resumes. But [the man's] teacher, a 'Wayshower,' can only show him the path to victory, for he must win this epic battle on his own."
A Rotten Tomatoes reader described The Expendables thusly: “Its purpose is to be violent.” Mission accomplished. Sylvester Stallone’s long-rumored convening of the Lat Pack – a motley crew of action stars past and present, including Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren and, in his first dramatic role since 2004’s Around the World in 80 Days, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger – is a love letter to bloody excess.
