Expendable: capable of being sacrificed in order to accomplish a military objective.

THE EXPENDABLES is a hard-hitting action/thriller about a group of mercenaries hired to infiltrate a South American country and overthrow its ruthless dictator. Once the mission begins, the men realize things arent quite as they appear, finding themselves caught in a dangerous web of deceit and betrayal. With their mission thwarted and an innocent life in danger, the men struggle with an even tougher challenge one that threatens to destroy this band of brothers.

Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) is a man with nothing to lose. Fearless and void of emotion, he is the leader, the sage and the strategist of this tight-knit band of men who live on the fringe. His only attachment is to his pickup truck, his seaplane and his team of loyal modern-day warriors. His is a true cynic who describes what he does as removing those hard to get at stains. The team behind him is made up of Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), former SAS and a savant with anything that has a blade; Yin Yang (Jet Li), a master at close-quarter combat; Hale Caesar (Terry Crews), who has known Barney for ten years and is a long-barrel weapons specialist; Toll Road (Randy Couture), a skilled demolitions expert and considered the intellect of the group; and Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), a combat veteran and an expert in precision sniping who struggles with his own demons.

When the mysterious Church offers Barney a job no one else would take, Barney and his team embark on what appears to be a routine mission: overthrow General Gaza (David Zayas), the murderous dictator of the small island country of Vilena and end the years of death and destruction inflicted on its people. On a reconnaissance mission to Vilena, Barney and Christmas meet their contact Sandra (Giselle Itie), a local freedom-fighter with a dark secret. They also come to learn who their true enemy is: rogue ex-CIA operative James Monroe (Eric Roberts) and his henchman Paine (Steve Austin). When things go terribly wrong, Barney and Christmas are forced to leave Sandra behind, essentially giving her a death sentence. Haunted by this failure, Barney convinces the team to return to Vilena to rescue the hostage and finish the job he started. And to perhaps save a soul: his own.

    Sergio, ex stuntman del cinema infortunatosi sul set di un film americano, per sbarcare il lunario si arrangia con impieghi fantasiosi, come fare il Centurione al Colosseo, mentre la sorella Maria con cui divide l’appartamento, ‘lavora’ da casa per una hot-line erotica. Due vite alla deriva, finché un giorno a cambiare le cose ci pensa Milan, immigrato clandestino bielorusso, che stravolgerà la loro esistenza. Pur di lavorare Milan è disposto a diventare lo “schiavo” di Sergio, sostituendosi a lui nel ruolo di “Centurione” al Colosseo. L’intraprendente extracomunitario diventerà ben presto l'idolo dei turisti anche perché, per battere la concorrenza, Milan – ingegnere nel suo paese - costruisce una biga come quella del film “Ben Hur”, grande attrattiva per i turisti. Lo straordinario incontro si trasformerà in una lucrosa occasione di guadagno per Sergio, e in una improbabile storia di amore per Maria dalle conseguenze tanto disperate quanto comiche.

    La película transcurre en el mes de abril del año 2005. Víctor, un carretillero de 17 años que trabaja en el famoso Mercado 4 de la ciudad de Asunción, se distrae imaginando ser famoso y admirado en la televisión de un puesto de ventas de DVD en pleno Mercado 4, lo que causa la perdida de un cliente a manos de otro carretillero que se le adelantó. El mundo del mercado es hostil, competitivo y hay miles como él esperando llevar las compras de los clientes a cambio de una pequeña remuneración. Victor entiende que necesita moverse para conseguir algo de dinero ese día. Entonces recibe una propuesta algo inusual, transportar 7 cajas de las que desconoce su contenido, a cambio de la mitad de un billete rasgado de 100 dólares. La otra mitad del dinero se le entregaría cuando éste termine su trabajo. Con un teléfono celular en préstamo, que utiliza el contratista para ir marcando por cual calle trasladarse, Víctor emprende el viaje. Cruzar las 8 manzanas que cubre el mercado parecía fácil pero las cosas se le van complicando: Le roban una caja, pierde el teléfono celular y la policía rodea el mercado buscando algo que él ignora por completo. A esto se suma un grupo de carretilleros dispuestos a escoltar las cajas por una suma ínfima de las ganancias. Sin saber, Víctor y sus perseguidores se van involucrando en un crimen del que no saben nada: la causa, la víctima y el victimario. Se hace de noche y Víctor entiende que ahora es cómplice de algo demasiado delicado y peligroso. La necesidad entonces le obliga a correr, a gritar, o simplemente a callar.
