Pretty much the greatest collection of action stars ever assembled, The Exendables 2 raises the bar on the ensemble action genre and makes the first movie in the series look a kindergarten party by comparison. Stand-outs include a conversation between Sylvestor Stallone and Chuck Norris that is pretty much one long Chuck Norris joke and Jean Claude Van Damme as a scene stealing bad guy! A must watch for all action fans!

The Expendables are back in a sequel that Steve Weintraub of COLLIDER calls "bigger, badder and better than the first one!" The team signs on for a mission that looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But things go wrong fast and one of their own is killed by a psychotic terrorist for hire. Hell-bent on payback, they cut a swath of destruction through enemy territory and wreak havoc upon their opponents. In the midst of the mayhem, they must also shut down an unexpected threat in the nick of time - prevent five tons of weapons-grade plutonium from falling into the wrong hands.
