What do Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Eric Roberts, Mickey Rourke,  Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger have in common?  They all appear in this old-school action story about a group of mercenaries on a suicide mission to bring down an evil South American dictator and save his daughter.  Behind the dictator is the real bad guy, an  American ex-C.I.A. agent who uses the general and his people to sell heroin.  To make things good, the Expendables will need a lot of fists, knives, guns, explosives and a big airplane.   Rated R (105 min.) mike laib 2011.

Classroom Tips:

1. Preview both the movie and its lesson. Lesson and movie are in the same sequence.
2. Within the lesson, decide which quotes, questions, and vocabulary to focus on. Highlight or cut-and-paste content you plan to use.
3. Estimate how you'll use available time for both watching and discussing the movie.
4. Remember: Most questions on the lesson are easy for a native speaker of English to answer, so the movie itself is the answer key.
5. Assessments are at http://www.moviesgrowenglish.com/Assessments.html.
