The Ten Spot: The Best of The Expendables -- Part 2

Stallone. Schwarzenegger. Willis. Van Damme. Statham. Li. Lundgren. Norris. Fuck yeah.

THE EXPENDABLES 2, whether or not it turns out to be a good movie (don't worry- it is), is shaping up to be the one of the most star-studded action team up flicks ever made. I mean, holy shit! In the eighties or nineties, would it have even been remotely feasible that this gang would have all ended up in the same movie? Their paychecks alone would have been $100 million (Arnie, Sly and Bruce were all 20 mil a flick guys). I know, I know- Arnie and Bruce arent really starring, and neither is Norris for that matter- but whatever. The gangs all here.

However, not all EXPENDABLES are created equal. Sure, Van Damme, Lundgren, Norris, and the Stafe all made some fun action pics, but Sly, Arnie, Bruce and Jet? They made EPICS. To get us all pumped up for THE EXPENDABLES 2, Ive decided to put together a little list celebrating the best that their respective filmographies had to offer. So join me on a trip down memory lane, and dont forget to pack some extra testosterone. Youll need it.

Today's list examines the heavyweights: Arnie, Sly and Bruce. Like the last list which featured Jet Li, Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren and Jason Statham, this only factors in solo action movies -- explaining the absence of some Bruce Willis faves, like PULP FICTION, THE SIXTH SENSE, and UNBREAKABLE.

But they're not really "action". I see them more as drama. I tried to keep it strictly action where they were the leads. Otherwise, Bruce would have dominated the list with PULP FICTION, UNBREAKABLE, SIXTH SENSE, SIN CITY, 12 MONKEYS, etc.
