The Expendables

An all-star cast of action-movie icons in an explosive action thriller about a group of hard-nosed mercenaries who are double-crossed during a treacherous mission.

Approached by the shadowy Church to overthrow tyrannical South American dictator General Gaza and restore order to the troubled island country of Vilena, stoic soldier of fortune Barney Ross rounds up an unstoppable team that includes former SAS soldier and blade specialist Lee Christmas, martial arts expert Yin, trigger-happy Hale Caesar, cerebral demolitions expert Toll Road and haunted sniper Gunnar Jensen, a combat veteran who never misses his mark.

Traveling to Vilena on a reconnaissance mission with his old pal Christmas, Barney meets their local contact, a cagey guerrilla fighter named Sandra.

It isn’t long before Barney and Christmas have discovered that their actual target is not General Gaza but James Monroe, a former CIA operative who has recently gone rogue.

Monroe won’t be easy to get to either, because his hulking bodyguard Paine is a force to be reckoned with.

When their mission is compromised, Barney and Christmas are forced to flee, leaving Sandra behind to face almost certain death. But Barney isn’t the kind of soldier to abandon a mission, or a hostage, and now in order to get the job done he’ll need the help of his old crew.
