In honor of Sylvester Stallone’s action packed “The Expendables” coming out the summer, I’ve decided to take a look back at some of Stallone’s most famous action flicks of the 90s.

Watch the new HD trailer for “The Expendables” here.

It is crazy to think that these movies were over a decade and a half ago.  If you were anything like me, these were frequent visitors of your VCR when you were younger. If you wanted to just sit back and watch a mindless action flick, these two were some of your options.

Judge Dredd is a legendary futuristic lawman renowned for his iron-fisted procedures. When Dredd is framed for murder by his enigmatic arch-rival, the entire planet finds itself on a deadly collision course which only the fearless judge can alter. Engineering a dramatic escape from the shuttle carrying him to his space imprisonment, Dredd sets out on a dangerous mission to stop the perpetrator from taking control and in the process discovers a startling secret about his own origins.

Check out some of the posters from the upcoming action flick “The Expendables.”
