Living life on the fringes of the law, a group of hardened mercenaries take on what appears to be a routine assignment: a covert, CIA-funded operation to infiltrate the South American country of Vilena and overthrow its ruthless dictator General Garza (David Zayas). But when their job is revealed to be a suicide mission, the men are faced with a deadly choice, one that might redeem their souls...or destroy their brotherhood forever. They are "The Expendables," leader and mastermind Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), former SAS blade expert Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), hand-to-hand combat specialist Yin Yang (Li), long barrel weapons specialist Hale Caesar (Terry Crews), demolitions expert Toll Road (Randy Couture), and precision sniper Gunner Jensen (Dolph Lundgren). (Gary Reber)

"The Expendables 2" is the sequel to "The Expendables" and features a rogue team of misfits lead by Sylvester Stallone. The team signs on for a mission that looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But things go wrong fast and one of their own is killed by a psychotic terrorist for hire. Hell-bent on payback, they cut a swath of destruction through enemy territory and wreak havoc upon their opponents. In the midst of the mayhem, they must also hunt down an unexpected threat in the nick of time—and prevent five tons of weapons-grade plutonium from falling into the wrong hands. (Gary Reber)

In "Expendables 3," Barney (Sylvester Stallone) faces off with an old enemy and must fight old blood with new blood, bringing in a new era of Expendables who are younger and faster. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise when The Expendables find themselves in their most personal battle yet. (Gary Reber)

In "Expend4bles," here is a new group of mercenaries (50 Cent, Megan Fox, Tony Jaa) who join the “old guard” to help fight an arms dealer with his own private army. This time, the mission is simple: retrieve a few stolen nukes before they spark a nuclear conflict between the U.S. and Russia. No pressure, really. It’s only World War III if they fail. (Gary Reber)
