The Expendables 2: Aging Heroes Tell A Tale of Blood, Mayhem & Last Meal
“The Expendables 2” is surprisingly worth its money and proves that old is indeed gold when it comes to action heroes. A whacky, adventure, and action film with predictable goodies and baddies succeeds in enthralling one and all helped along by a good dose of cheesy humor. The gang of old heroes even get down to discussing the last meal that they would like to have, piquing our interest as we get tired of all the bang-bang, blood, and gore in the movie.
Sylvester Stallone is Barney Ross, the boss of the gang and has even the intelligent and sexy female lead, Yu Nan, playing Maggie, sweet on him. “I like roasted duck,” she says and then hints suggestively that she likes Italian, too. Looks like the 60+ Sly Stallone still has the power to attract the fair sex without having to resort to aphrodisiacs .
Wondering whether Dolph Lundgren is actually drunk in the entire movie will give you food for thought while the sight of Crews adding spices to a tin bowl atop an open fire is bound to keep the famous old dialogue, “You are terminated” running through your head as well.
Curiously, a poster of “The Expendables 2” has Stallone being depicted as Jesus Christ sitting with his armed apostles for “The Last Supper”. We wonder who Judas is here. I suppose we will just have to wait until the release of The Expendables 3 in order to get an answer.
