Default 'The Expendables' - High-Def Digest Review

Our review of 'The Expendables' has just been posted. Aaron says this is a fun movie, and Stallone's work as a director (as seen in the behind the scenes features) is pretty impressive. This Blu-ray features very strong video, exceptional sound, and some of the best Blu-ray extras around. Highly recommended.

I was going to wait until the director's cut, but will probably pick this up on general principal. If sales are good the sequel can get fast tracked asap.

Loved this. Unapologetic straight-up action movie with a ridiculous cast. Bring on a sequel.

The fact that the extras are decent makes this a day-1 for me.

As far as I know they are. Stallone had said 6 months from his tweet which was a couple of months ago. March maybe?

ah well i shall pick this up and later when the Directors Cut is released i shall pick it up too..just like with Rambo (bought the box set with all four movies then the Directors Cut of Rambo)
Can't wait to see updates on sequels :] (pretty sure they are a high possibility, especially since he dumped Rambo 5 to make Expendables his priority)

During the Post Production feature he mentions a Director's Cut very briefly saying that he may change up some of the music for it.

That is unknown, but I think it will have more tidbits from the trailer (among other things) that were not in the theatrical release.

"Hello, Karma!"
