A new Action, Adventure, and Thriller movie titled Expend4bles will be helmed by Scott Waugh and written by Kurt Wimmer, Tad Daggerhart, and Max Adams. Jason Statham, 50 Cent, Megan Fox, and other actors make up the core cast.

The following production companies, Campbell Grobman Films and Millennium Films, are in charge of the series’ production. It is distributed by renowned distributor Lionsgate.

Age ratings are suggestions for parents and other caregivers of children to assist them choose what is suitable for their child based on what developmental stage they are at.

This movie portrait a set up a situation where Barney would be in charge of his team’s mission to stop Rahmat and exact revenge on his boss. Instead, he essentially disappears from the narrative, leaving Christmas to fumble their first meeting and lose her spot on the squad. Then Gina is put in charge while he pursues him on his own.

At this point, the plot that the three authors involved—Kurt Wimmer (Children of the Corn, Equilibrium), Tad Daggerhart (Traffic Cone), and Max Adams (Precious Cargo, Six)—came up with seems to have completely escaped director Scott Waugh (Hidden Strike, Need for Speed).

I can accept Megan Fox’s role as The Expendables’ leader, but I don’t agree with Waugh’s decision to have her do it while wearing perfectly manicured nails, freshly done hair, and flawless makeup. Although it’s possible that was done to draw attention away from the film’s poor CGI and action sequences.

Expend4bles Parents Guide

Age Rating:

The Expendables 4 returns the series to its original R rating, and parents might want to be aware of some of the key factors that went into that decision. Sylvester Stallone infused the Expendables films with a lot of blood and violence in order to pay homage to the great action movie actors from the 1980s when he started the franchise.

As a result, the first two Expendables films were given a R rating. The Expendables 4 won’t make the same error as The Expendables 3, which controversially changed to become a PG-13 hit.


  • Prolonged and repeated depictions of violent acts.
  • Periodic graphic or gruesome visuals.
  • Graphic images of beheading and mutilation.
  • Graphic depictions of violence and torture.
  • There is a lot of hand-to-hand, gun, and explosion action (some blood and detail portrayed).

Sexual Content

  • Infrequent use of crude sexual allusions and language.
  • Kisses and embraces.


Around 18 instances of coarse language, including scatological slang, profanity, and obscene idioms as well as a sexual expletive (in a non-sexual context).

Alcohol and drug use:

  • Representations of tobacco use.


In Expend4bles, a new generation of celebrities joins the biggest action stars in the world for an exhilarating journey. Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, and Sylvester Stallone return as the group of elite mercenaries, and are joined for the first time by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Megan Fox, Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, Jacob Scipio, Levy Tran, and Andy Garcia.

The Expendables are the world’s final line of defense and the group that is called in when all other alternatives have been exhausted. They are outfitted with every weapon they can get their hands on as well as the ability to wield them. However, new team members with fresh approaches will give “new blood” a completely new meaning. Anyways I prefer A Million Miles Away to this movie

Our Thoughts

The biggest difference between The Expendables 4 and prior films is what makes its rating more important. Violence, blood, and occasional language were the main reasons the first movie acquired a R rating, while bloody violence was the main reason for the sequel. The Expendables 4’s sexual content is a first for the male-centric franchise, even if The Expendables 3’s PG-13 rating contains references to violence and swearing.
