    Synopsis

    The only life they’ve known is war. The only loyalty they have is to each other.
    They are "The Expendables": leader and mastermind Barney Ross (Stallone), former SAS blade expert Lee Christmas (Statham), hand-to-hand combat specialist Yin Yang (Li), long barrel weapons specialist Hale Caesar (Crews), demolitions expert Toll Road (Couture), and precision sniper Gunner Jensen (Lundgren). Living life in the fringes of the law, these 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.

    Director, co-writer and star Sylvester Stallone brings together a powerhouse cast of action superstars – never before seen together in one film – in Lionsgate’s hard-hitting action thriller, "The Expendables". The film stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, and Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Eric Roberts, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, David Zayas with Terry Crews and Mickey Rourke. "The Expendables" was directed by Sylvester Stallone from a story by David Callaham and screenplay by David Callaham and Sylvester Stallone, and is produced by Avi Lerner, John Thompson and Kevin King Templeton. Lionsgate and Millennium Films present a Nu Image production.
