|The original "Expendables" team|
I really enjoyed the interactions between the main characters. I say this because the screenplay seemed so laid back, but in good way. The Expendables are trained killers, they show no mercy to the people they must kill, BUT they also show some light heartedness. The trailer itself shows an example of this; in the beginning when there is a Mexican standoff, one of the character's phones vibrates and one of them asks, "What's that", "I'm getting a text", "Excuse me". Its simple but funny dialog like this that made me admire the film even more.

One other feature that I liked about this movie was the energetic soundtrack provided by talented composer Brian Tyler. For any movie involving action I feel that it should be backed up by good music and Tyler does this well. Throughout this film, you will here a lot of strings and timpani and the way it is used is great. This plus all the action you will experience will keep your eyes glued to the screen because this movie is done so well.
Much of the violence is heavy during this film, but for any action adventure lover, The Expendables will pack the punch they're looking for. Even more fun will be listening to the screenplay and dynamic soundtrack by Brian Tyler.
