Andy Garcia’s appearance in “Expend4bles” fails to break the trend of lackluster films he often appears in. The film’s main draw is Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham, but Stallone’s role is short-lived and Statham shares screen time with a forgettable cast of aspiring action performers. The unrealistic elements include Megan Fox’s inappropriate attire for killing terrorists, unconvincing backgrounds, and pitiful acting. The majority of the film takes place on a ship with slow-moving action sequences that reveal their seams. Although Stallone and Statham have good banter, the film lacks strong writing. In conclusion, “Expend4bles” lives up to its title, and if there is ever an “Expendables 5”, a writer is desperately needed.
