The Expendables 2 (2012)
A routine retrieval for the Expendables becomes a mission of revenge when Jean-Claude Van Damme takes Sly’s knife.
Enjoyably rolling out classics one-liners and literally decimating about 300% of the henchmen in Albania, this extremely simple wall-to-wall action shoot-’em-up, thanks to enough well-judged buddy-buddy moments, just about avoids violence fatigue and delivers exactly what it promised: Sly shooting goons, Schwarzenegger shooting baddies and Willis shooting evildoers. Preferably while chewing giant cigars. Done. Between them and Liam Neeson (in Taken), it’s a surprise that’s there’s any criminal element left in Albania at all.
This movie contains bad language and extreme, graphic and extremely gory extended violence (we ain’t kidding).
