    So Barney Ross
    Murdered a random guy, just because this guy beat him in thumb wrestling, where Barney lost his ring - in a fair competition? After Ross got him beat up by Lee, and took the ring, the guy won fair and square, Ross alsobabducted him and let him burn to death in a horrible plane crash? And then they laughed about it?

    RIP Jumbo Shrimp, you didn't deserve any of this.

    It's always good to see Stallone, Statham, Lundgren and Couture, it's like seeing an old friend at this point, but that's about it.

    There's really no point to this movie, it's just these "heroes" beating everybody up - like in a video game on an "easy mode". Statham shoots, kicks or stabs, they bleed and fall and die. Rinse and repeat.

    There's usually very little point to action movies, unless we're talking Predator, Terminator 1 & 2 and Rambo First Blood and a few more, but this is taking the pointlessness a tad too far.

    The crew - Megan Fox looks like an inflatable s3x doll version of her former self, that's not even a face anymore. It's like a living filter.

    The other girl is also totally...expendable? They are both so out of place playing mercenaries, like Stephen Hawking playing Michael Jordan in a biopic.

    Honestly, I gave it 4 stars only because of nostalgia, I am 40 and I grew up watching those guys. Stallone is my childhood...and adulthood hero, I started weight training after seeing Rocky for the first time, still going strong 27 years later, but let's be honest, not all his films are exactly masterpieces.

    Statham is charismatic, looks great for his age, or any age, but his best work was in Transporter.

    Dolph is having some serious health issues, from what I understand, maybe that's why his role seemed even more limited, than before, but it was good to see him.

    Would I watch Exp5ndables? Or Expendable5? Or however would they name the next installation? Very likely, again, just to see those guys, not because the films are that good.

    Oh Megan
    First 2 were out of the bat successes and the third we don't talk about.

    Fourth was out of the blue and very cash grab which wasn't needed.

    I basically stopped when Megan fox took charge on what ever it was. Didn't realise she was having a main role of such and what made me question the film was when the CGI trucks rolled off the plane and they spliced sold terrible action shots of people pretending to be in it. It's as bad as when the flew into the tunnel on the third film.

    Never got meg leading so no clue how to really say if this film was saved in the slightest. I love a terrible film from the 90s but not 2024.
