At this point calling “The Expendables 2” ridiculous is a little like saying the sun is hot. I mean, that’s the whole point of the franchise, right? Why else would they be tossing in “Terminator” jokes in scenes with Arnold Schwarzenegger? It’s like Stallone got all his buddies together and just decided to make a movie, scripts and story be damn. Oh, I’m sure there’s a story in here somewhere (or something story-ish), but let’s face it, that’s not exactly the priority, is it?
Anyhoo, something something something happens, Jean-Claude Van Damme does something bad, and the Expendables gang up and join forces with Chuck Norris, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger to kill lots and lots of people. Have fun!
Also starring Jason Statham, Jet Li, Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Nan Yu, Liam Hemsworth, and Scott Adkins.
