So, in this new clip from “The Expendables 2”, Stallone and company are being pinned down by an attack helicopter. To get out of it, he decides to crank up a motorcycle and let it fly into the helicopter, essentially “killing” said helicopter. This reminds me of the scene in “Live Free or Die Hard” where John McClane does the same thing — except he used a car. And Justin Long’s character was like, “Dude, you just killed that helicopter with your car!” I’m not saying ol Sly, who also wrote the script for “The Expendables 2” is starting to, ahem, “borrow” from other action movies (this, and that “finger gun” clip that was totally cribbed from “The Losers”), but I’ll be curious to see what other familiar looking scenes show up in “The Expendables 2”.
The film, scheduled to scar up your face with napalm in two weeks, finds Stallone and crew killing a bunch of bad dudes in retaliation for the murder of one of their own. Or something like that. But rest assured, much massacring takes place. Jean-Claude Van Damme steps in as the bad guy.
“The Expendables 2” also stars Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Jet Li, Chuck Norris, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Nan Yu, Liam Hemsworth, and Scott Adkins.
Simon West directs the film, which blows up August 17, 2012.
