The Movie

After the great Cop Land (1997), Sylvester Stallone, the multi-talented actor, producer and screen writer, began drifting off into insignificance and it took him a couple of years to rediscover his artistic vision. When the time was right, he took his old characters, who were still loved by the fans, and did what he does best: Sometimes with a healthy dose of self-mockery (Rocky Balboa), sometimes rather seriously (John Rambo) and with his trademark expression on his face, he again brought his enemies to their knees.

Since those movies were profitable, they opened up the possibility for an awesome sounding project: Together with an all star dream-cast, among them Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren & Jet Li and several cameos of genre legends like Arnold Schwarzenegger & Bruce Willis he set out to revive old school action classics from the 80s: Die hard action heroes on a mission, with a simple plot and lots of one-liners.

On the surface, The Expendables is exactly that, but then again it is not. Back in the days bloody bullet holes required exploding blood packs that were placed under lightly colored shirts. If one wanted more details latex was the material of choice. If a director wanted to show a burning person, a stunt man had to be set on fire, buildings had to be blown away with explosives (at least miniatures of them) and so on and so forth.

Probably due to the smaller budget, 90% of the action in The Expendables is based on computer generated special effects. An extremely fast cut, which is reminiscent of Paul "Bourne-Trilogie" Greengrass and not of the good old era of hand made action movies and the fact that the screen time for action legends, such as Lundgren or Lee is way too short, tarnish the final result.

Nevertheless, the movie still is what most genre fans wanted to see: Die hard action heroes on a mission, with an extremely simple plot and lots of often matching one-liners. The much cited whining is on a rather high level and can be attributed first and foremost to unfulfilled expectations. That being said, there is still hope that the same mistakes will not be made again in the sequel The Expendables 2. Furthermore, like with John Rambo not all versions were available from the beginning...


The Versions


… At a time when the movie was still in theaters director Sylvester Stallone already announced an Extended Cut with 15 more minutes through his Twitter account. On the one hand hope was burgeoning that the action heroes, who did not have enough screen time, would get more space and that the rather haphazard cut would be improved. On the other hand, there were also doubts, caused by recent experience of the new cut of John Rambo, which was thoroughly botched.

In this case, however, I can assure you that with the Extended Cut of The Expendables almost everything was done right. To the full delight of the author of this report the work that was put into it was more than worth it.

From beginning to end, this means that: That Barney Ross, played by Stallone, now seems emotionally crippled and much colder and Lee Christmas, played by Statham is blaming him for this several times in the new cut. The latter suffers way more from his broken relationship with his girlfriend Lace. He almost desperately seeks help and comfort from Barney – obviously without success. In the meantime, not only does Randy Couture get more time to develop his character Toll Road, fans will also be happy to see MORE Dolph Lundgren. Furthermore, scenes with him that were already in the theatrical cut have been re-edited and almost exclusively to his advantage. In the Extended Cut his character Gunner Jensen is for example less “demonized”, which makes his change of attitude at the end of the movie more plausible. Also his fight with Jet Lee, whose key points were vigorously critizised, now opens with the necessary calm before the storm. The editing is also better. This does not reinvent the whole situation, but it makes the most of it. Similar is true for the showdown, although the nature of the flaws was different there. The sequences is more logical now and the worst CGI, as well as most of the aweful special effects shots of the burning Steve Austin, have been removed.

Mr. Stallone could also not resist the temptation to adjust the level of violence. The rescue of Sandra from the torture chamber has for example become a little tamer. It now comes across as more professional and not as unneccesarily sadistic as in the theatrical cut, a fact which the BBFC had also noticed.
Things like the new score for the final shootout are more or less a matter of taste.
Overall, however, the Extended Cut is clearly the better of the two versions.
It is nevertheless self-explanatory that not all the flaws of the theatrical cut were smoothed out. For that a) more and b) other material would have been needed. There is no miraculous revelation of character depth, which probably also does not belong in such a movie. That being said, the new version offers more material exactly where it was needed. Moreover, the sequencing, focus and editing have been improved.
Up until now the Extended Cut of The Expendables has only been available for a limited number of customers of the Video On Demand services, such as AT&T U-Verse, Comcast or EpixHD in the United States. So far neither a DVD, nor BD has been announced. However, there are rumours that a release can be expected for winter 2011/2012, but nothing is definite yet. It is also conceivable that the DVD/BD release will be postponed until the theatrical release of part 2, as the publishers might want to exploit the re-newed media attention.


The Extended Cut is 9 min. 47 sec. Longer than the theatrical version (all running-time references refer to the latter).

The leader screams to the Expendables that he was going to kill them all and that he didn’t care at all. Hale replies there were more morons than normal people on earth and advises a retreat.

Extended Cut
At the same point the EC shows a completely new opening with the song "Sinner's Prayer" (by Sully Erna) playing in the background - it actually gives the scene quite a serious and thoughful undertone. Appropriately you see the individual team members doing (more or less useful) things - a few of these things can be seen in alternate shots in the theatrical version at 8:56. Hale looks at a few photographs of his family, while Lee plays around with his knife. You can also clearly see Gunner's inner brokenness.

EC: The new lover again asks if Lee said something. Lee wants to repeat that Lace shouldn't let her boyfriend come down when Lace interrupts them and says that she only needs a second. The new lover goes to the door and slightly opens it. Lace appologizes to Lee and then she tells him that he has to understand it. Lee answers onscreen that he does and picks up his helmet. Then you see another shot of Lace looking quite desperate. (22.5 Sec.).


Images originate from the Extended Cut only:

No difference in time.

Theatrical Version:Extended Cut:



15:26
Alternative Order of Scenes (Extensions in both versions)
From now on, both versions are more or less identical in terms of content, however, they are quite different when it comes to the focus of individual plot lines, and the length of certain scenes (of course, every now and again they both use the exact same scenes). In general, both versions use the exact same takes, however, they are sometimes shorter/longer:

Theatrical Version: When Tool asks how Lee is feeling, the latter's answer, and the question whether or not the raven on Barney's back looks any good are all cut together pretty quickly. In return, Tool's idea to tattoo a spider on Lee's head is elaborated a little longer in the form of some additional dialogue and and an approving remark by Barney. Tool is able to make lee laugh with his words. (60.5 Sec.).
EC: Tool asks longer and more often if Lee is feeling fine and only in the EC he asks about Lee's girlfriend. Lee covers his feelings by simply saying "All good.". The part of the scene where they talk about the raven on Barney's back is a little more eased and not as fast-paced as in the theatrical version. In return, Tool's remarks about the spider on Lee's head are shorter and so is Barney's reaction to it. Additionally, Lee still doesn't feel like laughing and rather seems depressed. (62.5 Sec.).


Here's an example of Lee's different mood during Tool's attempt to cheer him up in 2 different shots:

Theatrical Version:Extended Cut:



16:48
Theatrical Version
Lee looks at the dartboard and seems to be a little annoyed. Barney looks at him in wonderment. The following shot of Tool taking a bow starts a few frames earlier.
3.5 Sec.



16:56
Theatrical Version
After Tool threw the knife Lee again looks at the dartboards.

In return, Lee only in the Extended Cut resignedly turns away from the dartboard.
1.5 Sec.

A few frames. (Theatrical Version is longer!)

22:19

In the Theatrical, Mr. Church starts his talking about what would happen if the Expendables do not succeed in a different shot. The Extended Cut shows this a bit further away.
No difference in time

Theatrical Version:Extended Cut:



22:22
Theatrical Version
Mr. Church says that this would happen if they wanted to betray them.
3 sec



22:59
Alternative Scene Order (Extended Cut longer)
TV: Barney drives into the storage depot alone. After he has turned off the engine, he picks up the envelope from the other seat and looks at the files of their next assignment on Vilena. Gunner approaches and askingly names the island, Barney affirms. (23 sec).
EC: The scene in the storage depot starts earlier and Lee is also sitting in the car, saying that he has a bad feeling about the job. Barney turns off the engine and says that they at least would get a lot of money for it. Lee asks aout their codex and that they said the target always should have deserved it. After Barney shrugs this off, he says that Barney has a black heart and has gotten cold, Barney affirms again. Lee is angry and gets out of the car, then Barney picks up the envelope. When Gunner comes and asks him about the assignment, he does not answer in this version. (48 sec).
The following question whether they had work there and Barney getting out of the car can be seen in using alternative footage as well. In general, the situation between these two seems a lot more tense than in the Theatrical Version – also because of the fact that Gunner asks more decisively and serious.

Extended Cut
Gunner asks a second time whether they thought he could not be trusted anymore.

Toll Road talks about his roommate in college, who always made fun of his ears. However, he says he never really got mad before he talked about his queer ears on the phone once. The others have to laugh a bit about the fact that it took hom so long to get angry, which makes him rage again. Barney manages to cool him down. Toll Road finishes by saying that he hit his roommate so often on the head until he got a problem with his ears as well.
49 sec



25:56
Extended Cut
Another shot of Hale, Toll Road takes a few steps back and says "What the fuck do you think i'm talking about."
4 sec



26:05
Alternative Scene Order
Basically the rest of the scene is equal, but in detail Barney just asks in the Theatrical Version "What family?", in the EC clearly more annoyed "What fucking family are you talking about?". Yin Yang takes up more time to answer in the EC, the following shot of Lee is identical. In the Theatrical Version Barney just turns around, in the EC he says "I know - don't ask." and then turns around.
2,5 Sec. (EC longer)

28:42
Alternative Scene Order( Extended Cut longer)
Theatrical Version: Barney says that Lee looks a bit dry and that he should rather fly with closed windows. Lee answers that it’s fear of heights, Barney confirms that.(7 Sec.).
EC: Barney examines Lee and says that he looks a bit dry. Lee answers that it’s fear of heights and Barney immediately retorts that it’s definitely not fear of heights but rather the fact that he always flies with the window open. The customs official looks at the two soldiers dunningly in the background while Lee explains that it’s dehydration and Barney confirms that and he adds that he’s a handsome man nevertheless. Lee asks if Barney is jealous which he confirms hesitantly, also because Lee is younger and so on. In the end Barney says that he’s glad of being himself. Lee wants to know if his buddy is finally ready, Barney affirms that and shakes his hand. They turn around again to the customs official. Barney says laughing that they like to make fun of each other from time to time because it keeps them awake during the flight. Thereupon Lee says that he’s the only who’s awake because Barney is always sleeping. He affirms that again with a smile. (38 Sec.).

Barney answers rather uninterested with a short "Right."
22,5 Sec.



31:05

33:20
Extended Cut
The shot of Lee is slightly longer while Sandra asks "Do you?" in respond to the question about the family. Barney wants to say something but Lee interrupts him by saying he has a truck and a waterplane. Barney looks a bit puzzled and Lee smiles gleefully.
8 Sec.



34:49
Alternative Scene Order ( Extended Cut longer)
The Theatrical Version is summarized here to bring the story forward while in the EC Lee repeatedly wants to talk about his relationship problems and he includes Sandra in this discussion which really bothers Barney. The few shots which were used in the Theatrical Version are also contained in the EC (in some cases slightly different).

TV: After a shot of Barney and Sandra, Lee already asks if they are close to the palace. Sandra confirms that, Lee asks her to stop. He gets out and Sandra wants to know what’s going on. Lee answers that he and Barney have different points of view regarding life and he leaves. Barney shouts to him not to lose his baseball cap whereupon Lee takes it off. (27 Sec.).
EC: Lee says to Sandra that he needs a female point of view on a problem. Barney asks what he’s trying to do and Lee answers that he’s just making conversation. Then he wants to know from Sandra if she ever had to take a coarse impudence from a person she really liked. Due to her limited knowledge of the English language she has problems to understand him, so Barney steps in and repeats annoyed that his ex wasn’t his type. Lee counters that he should just repeat it one more time so he would have a reason to put a bullet in his head, that it wouldn’t do any good to talk about this with “Dracula’s life-coach“ and that it’s no surprise that Barney is alone.
Now follows the part in the EC in which Lee asks if they are close to the palace and gets off the car. His statement about the different “points of view” is a little bit more emotional, moreover Lee bends over to Barney and adds that he‘s got a weak heart. After Lee slammed the door Barney gleefully shouts again that his ex wasn’t his type. Thereupon Lee throws the cap peeved in Barney’s direction (despite all that with a slight smile on his face) (65,5 Sec.).


Pictures just from the Extended Cut:




36:25
Alternative Shot
In the Theatrical Version the shot of Sandra is a bit closer compared to the EC and it’s a bit longer.
A few single frames (Theatrical Version longer)

36:31
Alternative Scene Order (Extended Cut longer)
TV: Sandra looks down on the floor while Barney already begins off-screen his lines of dialogue where he suggests Sandra to leave the island. (2,5 Sec.).
EC: Sandra asks "Why not?", Barney answers that it‘s probably necessary in this situation to turn the whole island inside out and that it just isn’t worth the money. Then he suggests Sandra earlier to leave the island (on-screen) (10,5 Sec.).

41:16
Theatrical Version
Barney runs a bit longer along the boat bridge.
1 Sec.

41:17
Alternative Scene Order (Theatrical Version longer)
Basically the run of Barney to the waterplane and his entrance at the last second are identical. But some single shots in the two versions are arranged differently - so the soldiers of the Brit & Garza get off their vehicles a little bit earlier in the Theatrical Version and some shots of Barney running towards the plane are slightly longer. An additional shot of Lee turning his head in the cockpit can just be seen in the Theatrical Version.
So the Theatrical Version (18,5 Sec.) is a bit longer than the EC (15,5 Sec.).

The final insult of Gunner towards the Brit is different in the two versions, but you can hear that the Theatrical Version was dubbed here, so the EC contains the original line.
TV: "Life's a joke, shitbird!"
EC: "Life's a joke, gumchew!"
No runtime difference

46:37

Gunner explains to Brit beforehand that he spent the last six hours in a storeroom which was nearly as big as his mouth. In the second single shot they used a shot of Munroe which was used at a later point in the Theatrical Version.

For the rest of the dialogue they used different shots in both versions, for example in the Theatrical Version the shot of Munroe which was displayed in the EC shortly before.
