In ten days, Stallone
takes his second shot at revitalizing Hollywood’s flagging action genre. His first swing missed the mark
back in 2010, but with a beefed up cast, expanded budget and a more... experienced director at the helm, The Expendables 2
stands a chance of doing what its predecessor couldn’t.
With an expanded role for action legend Arnold Schwarzenegger
in a villainous capacity, a NEWLY revealed R rating
and British stuntman extraordinaire Scot Adkins
leading the charge, I reckonEX2
could be a marked improvement on its forerunner.
If nothing else, it has Statham
proclaiming “I now pronounce you man and knife!”
And then he stabs fools.
