The Expendables 2

BACK FOR WAR.

Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) and his ace team of mercenaries try to retrieve a case from a safe that was onboard a plane that went down in Albania. In this sequel, where CGI blood spatter is as frequent as silly one-liners (Arnie even gets to serve up two variants of “I’ll be back”), there’s still fun to be had from watching these old warriors blow things up. Jean-Claude Van Damme is an apt villain, but as in the original there’s too many lulls and even though the movie has a sense of humor none of the jokes are actually funny.

2012-U.S. 103 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Simon West. Screenplay: Sylvester Stallone, Richard Wenk. Cast: Sylvester Stallone (Barney Ross), Jason Statham (Lee Christmas), Arnold Schwarzenegger (Trench Mauser), Bruce Willis, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren… Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Randy Couture, Liam Hemsworth, Amanda Ooms.

Trivia: Followed by The Expendables 3 (2014).
