Holy crap. Them’s lots of explosions going on there.
Check out the first full trailer for “The Expendables 2”, which actually reminds me of “Scream 2”, where those two movie nerds talk about sequels, and how they always have to be bigger, louder, and offer up a higher bodycount than the first movie. I think it’s safe to say that director Simon West and his “Expendables 2” boys and gals have all three of those elements covered here. Hell, they even got Van Damme to do his trademark jump-in-the-air-back-kick thing on Sly. That’s kinda awesome.
The sequel finds all-purpose mercenary Barney Ross and his usual gang of tough guys (and a new gal) taking on more muscle (and guns) when they are tasked with stopping Jean-Claude Van Damme’s villain. Van Damme, it appears, wants to take over the world or some such. Look, he’s evil, he has tanks and an unlimited supply of faceless henchmen to be blown up and shot to pieces. Do you really need to know more than that? Of course not, don’t be an idiot. ACTION!
The mayhem brought to you by Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Jet Li, Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Nan Yu, Liam Hemsworth, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, and Scott Adkins.
