“Some of us are getting paid, the rest of us are just getting dead.”
So, You thought that Schwarzenegger would eventually retire on an Austrian alp, sitting on a terrace of a mountain hut with a big bierpul of “Kaiser Bier” within reach and a huge cigar between his fleshy lips while looking out over the valley, saying with a deep voice “Ich habe es Ihnen gesagt: Ich komme wieder”. Or that he’s wearing a bermuda and a Hawaiian shirt while sitting somewhere at the coast of California, getting a tan and looking out over the ocean. Well you were wrong. This former Mr. Universe and former governor of California came back with a rather explicitly violent action film. After the average film “The Last Stand” and the reasonably successful “Escape Plan” in which he and his eternal rival Sylvester Stallone turn up, I thought that this action-hero would call it a day. His contribution to “The Expendables” is as ironic as the film was intended.
