The Girl’s Guide to The Expendables
From Sylvester Stallone to Jason Statham, none of these bad boys are expendable.
The testosterone-driven frenzy that is The Expendables continues to beat up the other contenders at the box office. And even though the flick stars every action star ever, it’s entirely possible that if you didn’t grow-up with a boatload of brothers you have no idea who any of these guys are.
Now you can impress any guy with your action knowledge with this BettyConfidential cheat sheet.
If you’ve never seen an action flick in your life, you probably still know Sly is Rocky and Rambo, and you’ve probably even seen him run up the stairs of the Philadelphia Art Museum or tie a red doo-rag around his head.
But you might not know that Stallone wrote both those flicks (and before some of the ridiculous sequels, they were pretty darn fantastic). He’s the writer and director of The Expendables as well. And even if it’s not your cup of tea, give credit where it’s due. At 64, Sly’s still doing his own stunts and broke his neck during filming, requiring the insertion of a metal plate. Words, Sly, use your words.
