expendables-poster Can a bunch of aging action stars make a great movie? I’m going with yes, because ‘The Expendables’ looks like one of the best action flicks of 2010. A movie like this could easily be cheesy or one cliche after another. Ok, maybe there’s a few cliches in there, but it still looks totally fun. Check ‘em out on Facebook.

Here’s the tagline from the trailer: “They are the world’s greatest mercenaries. The only life they’ve ever known is war. The only loyalty they’ve ever had is to each other.”

It follows a group of mercenaries hired to infiltrate a South American country and overthrow its ruthless dictator. Once the mission begins, however, the guys realize things aren’t quite as they appear, and they find themselves caught in a dangerous game of deceit and betrayal.

Watch the trailer after the jump…

Get a load of the cast: Sylvester Stallone plays Barney Ross, the leader of the group and a man with nothing to lose; Jason Statham plays Lee Christmas, a blades expert and former SAS; Jet Li plays Yin Yang, a master at close-quarter combat; Terry Crews is Hale Caesar, a long-barrel weapons specialist; Randy Couture plays Toll Road, a demolitions expert; and Dolph Lundgren is Gunnar Jensen, a combat veteran and expert sniper.

When the mysterious “Church” offers Barney a job no one else wants, he and his team embark on a routine mission to overthrow General Gazar (David Zayas), dictator of a small island country. They meet their contact Sandra (Giselle Itie), a local freedom fighter, and also learn who their true enemy is: rogue ex-CIA op James Monroe (Eric Roberts) and his henchman Paine (Steve Austin).

Also in the cast is Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Danny Trejo and Charisma Carpenter. Check out the trailer, and let me know what you think. I love a good action flick.
