Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) reunites Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) with his elite band of mercenaries, the Expendables, for what should be a very easy job. Things go terribly wrong, however, when one of their members if viciously murdered by rival mercenary Jean Vilain (Jean-Claude Van Damme). Determined to obtain revenge, the Expendables find themselves in enemy territory with the odds stacked against them.

It’s enough to change the balance of world power, and it’s up to The Expendables to keep it from going into the wrong hands. The crew cuts a wide swatch of destruction as they strive to save the world and get the revenge they crave.
