Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren and Randy Couture are reunited in this new action hit.
The Expendables team takes on some new members when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists them for a seemingly simple job. It looks like an easy paycheck for Stallone 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. 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. That is done the Expendables way!
“Expendables 2” opens today nationally, including at the Luxury 5 Cinemas. 103 minutes. It is rated R for strong bloody violence throughout.
Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis star in this comedy about two of the most inept idiots to ever run for Senate.
