The Expendables


Just saw this on PPV and thought it was a blast. The basic premise is good (CIA hiring mercenaries under a bidding system to do jobs they can "reasonably deny" if things go wrong).

It is setup with sequels in mind that may or may not have the big name actors reappearing but we do get to meet a whole new group of characters which show us the "brotherhood" that the mercenaries live under. I have no clue if any of the premises are really real but it works for the movie.

3 stars because the film uses a gimmick which is contrary to the idea under which the mercenaries operate (according to the movie) in order to get Sylvester Stallone group into action...

       Hour of darkness: Promising breathtaking

Faced with aliens
Darkest Hour (Dark Hour) is set in the city of Moscow held the record hot day with temperatures up to 40 degrees C (104 degrees F). The two young men hiding behind a police car between Red Square was abandoned. They do not have to avoid the sun but to escape the pursuit of aliens who are occupied in this place.
Two boys with their group has been forced underground when slip underground city they are staying and the rest of the world was destroyed by those who come from another planet. Now that no longer exits, they have up on the ground, lacking everything, and seek security in the city of Moscow desperately desolate ...
Hours of darkness under the category of science fiction adventure with 3D format is the latest film project, directed by Chris Gorak, produced by Tom Jacobson and Timur Bekmambetov. Cast in the film is a combination of talents from around the world. Representing the East and Midwest, is Emile Hirsch and Olivia Thirlby. Max Minghella came from the United Kingdom, Joel Kinnaman is Swedish and Rachael Taylor from the land of the kangaroo species. Together, they form a group of actors in the sci-fi project with Hollywood ambition, the first project was shot entirely in Moscow.
 "We are using 3D as a technology embedded in his narrative," Jacobson said. "We're not too excited about a horror movie classic style. Our idea is to make a product as the hurt locker and 28 wireless later. But the aesthetics of 3D technology is different. The question is: how can we tell a story like this in 3D format without making the viewer feel dizzy or nausea? This is a big challenge for us. "
One of the challenges created additional momentum for that crew decided to make films in 3D format. "It's a big ambition of us because it requires very high cost," said Bekmamtov. "It changed the entire production plan and we have to recalculate the entire scene - especially the arrangement of them - but there is also a very brave decision to turn 3D directly rather than passing Reformat after shooting. "
 "For the first time here with director Chris Gorak, we have to be turned symbol of Moscow", seasoned producer Tom Jacobson said. "The scene where we were filming should be done in a different city, but Chris has decided to implement it in the middle of Red Square. He said, "I want to give our actors on an adventure in the city."
The script originally brought the film to a small town in America. But the idea of ​​relocating back to Moscow made all excited. "I think it's a great choice," says director Chris Gorak. "There were too many American cities appear on the scene of triumph. This is a totally new location and it also has many cultural heritage and architecture, is indeed a paradise to shoot the sci-fi movie. "
Moscow, a place unfamiliar to most international audience, is because it has not yet appeared in several American films, which increases the feeling of isolation of the characters. "To succeed, a project must have a story across and placed in the context of a unique world," producer Timur Bekmambetov said. "You can use any classical story, but when you bring it to Moscow immediately it becomes much more interesting."
"Moscow is a great image and a special attraction, although not many people - especially Americans - to visit this city," Jacobson said. "It is worth noting here, that's the character we are strangers to this land in the first movie, then they are alien creatures attack."
"People rarely speak in Los Angeles to Moscow," Emile Hirsh said about the special attraction of the movie script for him. "Moscow also bring a different perspective when I read the script. It's a strange environment, so as to put a story like this in an environment alien to me makes my job even more interesting. "

Re:


Hi sonhalb,

Your message makes no sense for this topic and puts your Runboard membership in jeopardy as it looks, feels and smells like spam. It would have been much better if you had posted a honest, simple, 3rd party Runboard add-on post since it is possible for the Runboard message board owners to have flash games on their boards.

He/she only posted to get his/her spam link on the board, which was in his/her signature. Not only that, but I'm pretty sure the post had nothing to do with the topic. emoticon

Re:


Definitively off topic here but the link itself would have been totally on topic #post228224]here and #post40466]here.

On the other hand, I just saw this trailer for The Expendables 2 due out in August 2012 with 11 major action stars in it!
