Expend4bles [2023] - Jason Statham, 50 Cent, Megan Fox

Expend4bles is a low budget mixed bag. Though the stunts are decent if not good, the backdrops are definitely questionable.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m all for low budget action movies. But Expend4ables lowers the bar even more by being extra cringy, totally unnecessary and somehow annoying.

While there is arguably only one extended sequence that truly pays its way, there is consistent value to be drawn from Statham’s work here. Someone can argue that he’s the only actor that actually signed up to this job insteaf of being forced into it.

The movie has issues. Lots of them. Its undeniable dramatic, narrative, and audiovisual shortcomings undermine any attempt to, at the very least, entertain with its repertoire of setpieces for viewers over 18. The green screen is obvious. The lighting doesn’t work. The script is weak. And to be polite, the acting is…forced.

While the first three films in the series showed grit and charm as they brought together old and new action stars for B-movie mayhem, this is an embarrassing comedown. Though running at around 100 minutes, the plot is paper thin and brimming with stilted conversation.
