The Expendables 2 Synopsis

The Expendables are back and this time it’s personal...Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunner Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) -- with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard -- are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney 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. Hell-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 — five tons of weapons-grade plutonium, far more than 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.

Why The Expendables 2 Shouldn't Have Included Women Why The Expendables 2 Shouldn't Have Included Women
The Expendables 2 does make room for one woman on the team, in what looks like a nod toward gender equity but quickly devolves into the same old pandering bullshit. Maggie (Nan Yu) is an expert safecracker sent to help them in a crucial part of the mission, but the minute he learns she's a woman, Sylvester Stallone's Barney snarls "I'm not a babysitter."

Sylvester Stallone isn’t really known for his comedy. While he does have a few funny movies on his resume (or at least movies that were supposed to be funny), he’s largely known for boxing, firing guns and killing Vietnamese. But if you ask Terry Crews, who has a solid comedic background of his own, about the humor of Stallone his answer may surprise you.

There may be a lot of action films on their way this summer, but it's unlikely any of them will hold a candle to The Expendables 2, which in all its advertising so far has promised nothing short of the most explosions, punches, quips and aging action stars you've ever seen in a single movie.

Thanks to Paramount deciding to push G.I. Joe: Retaliation to 2013, this summer has decidedly less Bruce Willis action. The actor will be playing the original G.I. Joe in the film who helps Dwayne Johnson, D.J. Cotrona and Adrianne Palicki stop Cobra Commander and the shapeshifter that has taken over the White House. Fortunately, however, that wasn't the only summer movie of 2012 to feature Bruce Willis.

Despite having an R rating - something that every studio in the free world is absolutely terrified by - The Expendables was one of the biggest hits of summer 2010, pulling in $274 million at the international box office on an $80 million budget.

Sly Stallone's first Expendables movies was the definition of a boy's club. While there were some members of the fairer sex in the movie, like Giselle Itie and Charisma Carpenter, it was the men that were all of the action and violence. That will change in The Expendables 2. In the sequel, the returning cast members are joined by Chinese actress Yu Nan and she won't simply be the damsel in distress.

The Expendables 2 Adds Tennis Star Novak Djokovic The Expendables 2 Adds Tennis Star Novak Djokovic
On the list of "manly" sports, tennis doesn't really rank towards the top of the list. Sure, the athletes in the sport are some of the most physically capable in the world (do you have the strength to hit a serve 155 mph?) but are still placed behind the men who professionally play football, basketball, hockey and baseball. But how many active players in those sports have a role in a movie alongside Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Chuck Norris, and every other major action star from the last 30 years?

Everyone in the poster seems to have been Photoshop-buffed to a high sheen, including Jason Statham and Terry Crews, who are really pretty young compared to the rest of the crowd. There's also a strange switcheroo between the credits at the top, which list the absent Liam Hemsworth, Jet Li and Randy Couture
