The Expendables 2 

"If this movie was winking any harder at the audience it would probably pop a blood vessel."

Sylvester Stallone and his merry macho men are back to shoot shit...and this time, it's personal. When one of their own is killed, Barney Ross (Stallone) and his bad-ass crew of mercenaries are propelled from their usual multi-national hooliganism into a more focused form of obliteration. Thankfully, *Expendables 2* trims away much of the love story and soul-searching that dragged down its predecessor in favour of the simple, and admirable goal of finding and murdering Jean-Claude Van Damme. Yes, all your favourite dry-aged action stars are here and you better believe everyone cracks wise on each other's fame. If this movie was winking any harder at the audience it would probably pop a blood vessel. Cameos and testosterone aside, this is a pleasantly straight-forward action flick like those from the era when its cast members were alive.
