The Expendables just reminds me of how rare a truly good action flick is in today's movie market. It makes me long for the late '80s and early '90s typified action films like Commando and Demolition Man. The action, the explosions, and of course....the death scenes. In that regard, The Expendables does not fail....
In this scene, Gunner(Dolph Lundgren) takes out a Somalian pirate with a grenade launcher, blowing off his torso and setting the tone for the rest of the film. "WARNING SHOT!"
More great death scenes from The Expendables
*videos coming soon*
When General Garza's daughter gets a visit by two soldiers looking for some of the old in-out, in-out. Barney(Sylvester Stallone) saves the day with his trusty knife, stabbing one soldier in the throat and slowly twisting the blade. Brutal.
Another great scene comes near the end when Jet Li and Jason Statham both fight our villain's secondary henchman,'The Brit'(Gary Daniels). After an extended fight, the duo end it with a double team move, finishing him off with an axe kick to the neck, breaking it instantly. The best death scene of the film.
Other notable scenes include a Randy Couture superman punch to the top of Steve Austin's head, killing him. Terry Crews blasting soldiers away with an automatic shotgun and I mean BLASTING THEM AWAY, the scene is worth the price of admission alone. WATCH IT HERE
