Have you ever wanted to see Arnold Schwarzenegger in a smart car?! Well, EXPENDABLES 2 is going to be your kind of film. In all serious though, this looks like a helluva lot of fun. Plus it adds the clever zinger “I now pronounce you man and knife” into the lexicon. People! It’s like a return to the good ol’ days of action movies – the 80’s!
Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren),Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) – with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard – are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time — six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that’s nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother.
Sounds pretty great, right?! I know it may shock some of you, but I’m totally on board with this thrill ride. The highly anticipated sequel to the worldwide success, THE EXPENDABLES 2 will be in theaters everywhere August 17th. Thanks IGN!
