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).

Part 2


50:16
Alternative Scene Order(Extended Cut longer)
Munroe and his men search Sandra’s dwelling while Garza’s men take care of the surrounding neighbors. In terms of content the two versions are equal but the order is different.

TV:All of the interrogations/violent acts against the islanders by Munroe and Paine before entering the hut are shown here. Basically the shots are equal to the EC, but a few differ in terms of presentation and some are ordered differently. In the inside of the hut the scene order is identical but Munroe and Paine are shown a little bit longer in the Theatrical Version after Munroe took the drawing from the wall. Outside on the street again there are several cuts back and forth between close-ups during the conversation of Munroe and Garza and during the departure of Garza and his men. (68 Sec.).
EC: At first here are some short impressions of the round-up of the islanders by the soldiers, then Munroe and Paine entering the hut are shown in an exterior shot where they find the drawing on the wall, identical to the Theatrical Version (even though a little bit shorter). A cut to the outside where Garza watches the people get interrogated, maltreated and chased down the road. There are some more short shots of that in the EC. Afterwards Munroe and Paine are shown longer while stepping out of Sandra‘s hut until the conversation of Munroe and Garza starts here too. The conversation is differently presented (less theatrical emphasis of some words) and it’s displayed less hectically in just one shot from further away.
Within the same shot Munroe and his men leave. After that Garza turns to the action on the street again, some impressions of the soldiers maltreating the islanders are shown once more. Finally there’s a soft dissolve to an external view on Tool’s shop as opposed to the Theatrical Version, where there‘s a hard cut at this point. (79,5 Sec.).

55:29
Extended Cut
Munroe explains to Sandra the Latin roots and the meaning of her name (protector of man), then he points out the irony of the fact that she’s after all standing in front of him.

20 Sec.



55:30
Alternative Shot(s)
The following first line of dialogue of Munroe about the beating of women is shown in different shots at the beginning. Moreover this scene sequence begins a bit earlier in the Theatrical Version, therefor it runs slightly longer in the EC so in the end there’s no runtime difference.

She’s brought before her father and then brought out. Munroe explains that Garza wanted answers, who then says that they most certainly shouldn’t have been revealed this way. Munroe retreats, Garza and his soldiers leave the room. Munroe looks at Paine sullenly while the Brit throws the water bucket angrily against the door.

Extended Cut
After Yang's second kick, Gunner gets up again and shakes his head.
3 sec.



1:03:37
Alternative Shot Order
Gunner asks Yang, whether he was wearing size 3 and then starts to fight back.

The Extended Cut is all in all a bit more fluid, lucid and a bit longer.
1 sec. (EC länger)

Theatrical Version:Extended Cut:




1:03:55
Alternative Shot Order (Expansion in the Extended Cut)
Theatrical: Yin Yang lands at the pallet and ducks away. Gunner kicks into the pallet four times and angrily looks for Yang. The latter then tries to duck away from Gunner's next attack. (3 sec.)
EC: Yin Yang lands in an additional shot further away. Gunner wants to kick, but Yang ducks away in a closer shot. Gunner kicks the pallet twice in slow motion. Yang stops a bit further away, Gunner approaches him. The shot a bit further away when Yang tries to block Gunner's attack starts a few frames earlier.(6,5 sec.).

Theatrical Version:Extended Cut:



1:04:00
Theatrical Version
Barney regains his consciousness in two slightly earlier shots.
3,5 sec.



1:04:08
Alternative Shot Order (Extended Cut longer)
Gunner pursues Yin Yang under the railing and is being kicked by Yang a few times at the head and torso before they start an open fight again. However, Gunner seems to be the lesser fighter. The content is the same, but the Theatrical (14 sec.) shows a few different shots than the Extended (17 sec.), which also features a few additional shots like Gunner being kicked in the groind after being stuck on one of the steel girders.

Theatrical Version:Extended Cut:



1:04:29
Theatrical Version
Gunner fidgets around in front of Yang, who punches earlier.
2,5 Sec.



1:04:35
Theatrical Version (Alternative Shot)

3 Sec. (TV longer)



1:04:39
Alternative Scene Order (Extended Cut longer)
In the Theatrical Version Yin Yang jumps in two short shots on the underside of the scaffold (0,5 Sec.), in the EC it’s (2,5 Sec.) - the attention is drawn to the laughing Gunner there.

Theatrical Version:Extended Cut:



1:04:47
Alternative Scene Order
Gunner says in the Theatrical Version "My turn!" and grabs Yang in several shots; in the EC he says "Size matters!" and rams his opponent earlier against the grid. The latter shot runs slightly longer.

Theatrical Version:Extended Cut:



1:04:59
Alternative Shot
In the Theatrical Version Gunner holds Yin Yang over a sharp pipe; in the EC he just holds him up in a frontal shot and shouts "Hello karma!".
This makes more sense here because Yang falls down after Gunner gets shot at so consequently he would have been speared in the Theatrical Version.
0,5 Sec. (EC longer)

Theatrical Version:Extended Cut:



1:05:42
Alternative Scene Order (Extended Cut longer)
The conversation of Barney and the wounded Gunner is basically the same, but in the Theatrical Version it’s shorter and it’s depicted in slightly different shots (39,5 Sec.). In the EC Barney mainly talks about the fact that Gunner never liked Yin Yang and that he surely would have killed him, which he affirms with a smile. Moreover he demands a Viking funeral right there on which Barney responds that he definitely won’t put him in a box and set it on fire. But Gunner insists on that stridently, so Barney indulges him that for the moment to get the information. (56 Sec.).


Pictures just from the Extended Cut:




1:07:22
Alternative Shot
In the Theatrical Version the wide shot showing the action keeps running, in the EC there’s a close-up of Caesar.

1:07:35
Scene Rearrangement
In the Theatrical Versionthe conversation of Barney, Lee and Yin Yang in the cockpit follows at this point, so it’s cut in into the conversation of Caesar and Toll Road (in the EC the two conversations are shown straight in succession).
For the conversation in the cockpit has some scene extensions in the EC, they are presented here in chronological order:


1:07:42
Extended Cut
Barney adds that he had to promise a Viking funeral to Gunner, including scattering his ashes over the sea and everything else. Lee says that they will probably contaminate 100,000 miles of coast, Barney adds “if that’s enough”. Then the latter speaks to Yin Yang about the fight with Gunner.
13,5 Sec.



1:07:45
Alternative Scene Order (Extended Cut longer)
TV: Barney looks smiling at Lee who smiles back. Barney looks ahead again. (3,5 Sec.).
EC: Caesar strikes up the chorus of the song "Diamond Dogs" by Shinedown, the others join in the cheerful "Boom-Lay Boom-Lay Boom". Then Lee and Barney raise their glasses to each other, all of them take a big sip from their bottles. In relation to the before mentioned potential contamination of 100,00 miles of coast caused by Gunnar’s ashes Lee adds that it rather would be 1 million miles of coast, they burst into laughter. (21 Sec.).

In this shot of him Garza gives the order to bring the daughter.
7,5 Sec. (EC longer)
