The Expendables 2

The Expendables 2

Starring: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger

Director: Simon West

Release Date: 17 August 2012

Looking for an over the top action movie filmed with the most well known action movie stars of the last few decades? Then this will be your movie. I really enjoyed the first Expendables movie. It was a fun action packed testosterone filled thrill ride and the sequel seems to be more of the same. Arnold was to busy being Governor of California to do anything more than a cameo in the first film but in this next installment he seems to have a more substantial role.

 Here is a list of the action packed cast. Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Liam Hemsworth, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

 Here is a basic synopsis of the plot from Wikipedia.

 After taking a seemingly simple job for Mr. Church (Bruce Willis), the Expendables find their plans going awry and one of their own is brutally murdered by rival mercenary Jean Vilain (Jean-Claude Van Damme).The Expendables set out into hostile territory — with their new members Bill the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) — to put a stop to a deadly weapon and gain their revenge against the villain who killed their brother.

 

Sounds simple enough. I really think this will be 2 hours of mindless escapism.

About billfoley63

I was born in 1963 and that is relevant to my development of my love for science-fiction and fantasy movies, comic books, superheroes and many other things attributed to Nerd culture. In the 60s I watched all the Saturday afternoon Godzilla and monster movies I could take. In the 70s I became hooked on Star Trek. I am also an artist (in my own mind at least) and a musician. I enjoy learning about physics, astrophysics, chemistry and earth silences such as meteorology, anthropology, paleontology. When I reached my late 30s I began to re-explore my nerd roots. I reconnected with my love of science fiction and fantasy movies along with the other science related topics. For this blog I will focus on movie and TV reviews for science fiction and fantasy and post my thoughts on up coming movies. I will also include some fun facts from the various sciences I enjoy along with weather facts and bits from royalty and history. What I will not discuss is religion and politics. I am married to a beautiful woman named Sarah and have a lovely daughter named Danielle.
