EXPENDABLES 4K REVIEWED
“The Expendables” are a group of older actors playing ex-military vets who come together to topple a dictator. For those that don’t remember the first entry, I’ll break it down rather fast. Old people are pals, Mickey Rourke barely exists in it and you get a realistic waterboarding scene. Wash and repeat until the finale. So, what about this film’s debut in 4K? It’s easy to say that the movie looks great.
What many will overlook how strong the audio performance is on the disc. I know that Atmos is taking over, but this soundstage is stunning. From the helicopters to the explosions and beyond dominate ever speaker. The lengthy documentary about the film is included on the 4K side of the disc. However, the majority of the material is shoved over to the Blu-ray. Straight up, this is an A/V upgrade over the last release. If you don’t have a 4K system, you still need to invest in the future with this disc. Check it out.
That being said, I still find it weird that the Expendables movies made it to 4K out of order. But, that’s just me.
