''Mercenaries'' is a 2014 action film by Creator/TheAsylum, essentially a distaff version of ''Film/TheExpendables'' starring Creator/KristannaLoken, Brigitte Nielsen, Vivica A. Fox, Cynthia Rothrock, Creator/ZoeBell, and Nicole Bilderback. While visiting Kazakhstan, the daughter of the president is kidnapped by a female warlord, Ulrika, and held for ransom. Because Ulrika distrusts men, the normal operatives are of no use, so Mona Kendall of the CIA (Rothrock) recruits four women in prison with unique skills to save the president's daughter.

!!This film exhibits the following tropes:
----
* ActionGirl: Four of them. Five if you include Ulrika.
* BoxedCrook: The four women are offered pardons for their (largely trumped up) charges if they can rescue the president's daughter.
* DoesNotLikeMen: Ulrika does not trust men, and definitely has a thing for women.
* ExcusePlot: Four criminals recruited to save the president's daughter from a misogynist warlord... how can this go wrong?
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: The bad guys spray the protagonists down with automatic fire several times, and no one takes a hit.
* TheMole: [[spoiler:Raven fairly predictably turns on the others and makes a deal with Ulrika]]
* NeckSnap: Clay performs a fairly effortless one on one of the mooks.
* TokenEvilTeammate: Three of the women are in jail for trumped up charges relating to them wreaking vengeance on men who spread pain in the world. Raven just liked getting paid to kill people.
* TrojanPrisoner: Part of their plan for getting in involves faking Mei Lin as a prisoner.
