Muscles on muscles.
If the first EXPENDABLES flick didn't sate your appetite of action stars with loose skin and old balls, then hold onto your walkers, because a sequel is in the works. Sylvester Stallone who served as director, writer, and main meatball on the first is back to reprise his role--but only in front of the camera. He's relinquished his directing credits to Simon West (THE MECHANIC) this go-around.
I quite enjoyed the first ride, so I don't know why another helping would sway me in any other direction. The main cast is back: Sly, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, and Randy Couture. Mickey Rourke sadly has bid adieu, but replacing him is the formidable beard of Chuck Norris. Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger had cameos in the original; their roles seem to have been expanded.
The one oddball in the mix is Liam Hemsworth--Thor's younger brother. Don't remember him from the 80's. Finally, JCVD himself plays the villain. You'll never guess his name: Jean Vilain. You can't make this stuff up. THE EXPENDABLES 2 beats the shit out of you August 17, 2012.
