Description

A double bill of action blockbusters. 

In 'The Expendables' (2010), an ensemble cast of action stalwarts including Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, Terry Crews and Mickey Rourke join forces to bring down a South American dictator. The film also boasts cameo appearances from Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis, and sees Stallone and Schwarzenegger sharing a screen for the first time ever. 

In the sequel 'The Expendables 2' (2012), Willis, Stallone and Statham reprise their roles, as Mr Church (Willis) reunites the formidable Expendables team, plus new member Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth), for what should be a straightforward job. But when one of their number is murdered by adversary Jean Vilain (Jean-Claude Van Damme), the team's quest for revenge finds them pitted against an unexpected rival.

Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"THE EXPENDABLES perfectly captures the ultra-manly, grimly, dimly lit, explosion-heavy, gleefully over-the-top aesthetic of a mid-'80s Cannon film like Stallone's own COBRA." -- Grade: B
Nathan Rabin (12 Sep 2010, )
Box Office
3 stars out of 5 -- "Lundgren is quite engaging as the confused Gunner and Li is amusing and in control as Yin Yang."
Pete Hammond (7 Aug 2010, )
Empire
3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t delivers a super-size portion of bone-cracking, bullet-spraying, muscle-flexing, head-exploding action..."
Empire Staff (1 Sep 2010, )
Entertainment Weekly
"[R]ousingly explosive....As for Stallone, he grimace purposefully in his El Greco beard, and he keeps the body count coming so that it sates you like a junk-food craving fulfilled." -- Grade: B
Owen Gleiberman (20 Aug 2010, )
Hollywood Reporter
"An effective ix of lean and over-the-top, THE EXPENDABLES is often preposterous, but it achieves the immediacy of a graphic novel without the overdone mythology."
Sheri Linden (4 Aug 2010, )
Los Angeles Times
3 stars out of 5 -- "[O]ld-fashioned nonstop mayhem....[I]ts brisk action and bracing explosions take place not in the real world but on a mythical South American island named Vilena."
Kenneth Turan (13 Aug 2010, )
Premiere
"[I]t's a lot of goofy testosterone fueled fun..."
(22 Nov 2010, )
Uncut
"[T]here is fun to be had here. The action sequences are terrific, the violence excessive. The guiltiest of guilty pleasures, then."

Synopsis
The Expendables return with a vengeance in this follow-up to the 2010 surprise hit. CON AIR's Simon West directed from a script by Sylvester Stallone and David Agosto. This time, Barney Ross (Stallone) and his merry band of mercentaries (including Jason Statham, Randy Couture, Dolph Lundgren, and Terry Crews) take on a mission from Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) to clear Ross' record. The mission in question involves acquiring a black box from a downed airplane, with the caveat that they bring along Maggie (Yu Nan), a military-trained soldier who throws a gendered wrench into the team's manly ranks. When another mercenary, Jean Vilain (Jean Claude Van Damme), ambushes the team and mess up their newest member (THE HUNGER GAMES' Liam Hemsworth), it's hunt and kill time for the Expendables. Jet Li returns in an extended cameo, as does Arnold Schwarzenegger, with fellow '80s action star Chuck Norris coming along for the ride. UNDISPUTED III's Scott Adkins co-stars as Vilain's henchman, Hector.

4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his over-the-top sequel caters to the lowest common denominator in the best possible way, and it's so fully committed to brainless bombast that it muscles audiences to applaud by sheer force of will."
Amy Nicholson (15 Aug 2012, )
Hollywood Reporter
"Sylvester Stallone grasps the action-oriented DNA of the films’ badass cast of reprobate mercenaries with an intuition derived from dozens of genre roles."
(13 Aug 2012, )
