From all the commercials and trailers I kept seeing of the movie, I thought it was going to be something like Commando times five people. I finally got to see the movie last night, and I was disappointed. The first half-ish part of the movie had a lot of talking, but it felt pointless. Some would call it character development, but halfway through the movie, I still didn't give a crap about half the cast. There was even this lame subplot about an ex-girlfirend being abused by her new bf, which reached an obvious conclusion with no flare. Even when most of the action got underway during the second half, it was still pretty meh. There were some cool moments, yeah, but the problem was that the good guys were nearly indistinguishable during the battle. Most of the time, you could switch one person with another in a scene, and it wouldn't matter.
The thing that sucked the most? No one died. I'm not talking about the bad guys that get their's in the end, but every "good guy" ends up surviving. It pretty much sucks out a lot of suspense and tension when you realize no "big name" characters are going to be killed, no matter what.
I heard an Expendables 2 is already in the making. It better not suck as much as the first.

It was okay, could have been much better. I do think that they should have killed off at least one of them, and more than just Steve Austin.

I read that Steve Austin is possibly coming back for the sequel, which made me go o_O.

It's the bald head. I think it makes him fireproof.
