The Expendables are back and this time it's personal... Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Lee Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren),Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) -- with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard -- are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time -- six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that's nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother. That is done the Expendables way....
The all-star action stars ensemble includes Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Liam Hemsworth, Jean Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Scott Adkins. The film was directed by Simon West ("Con Air", "The Mechanic").
Action movie icons – Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris – are back for the highly anticipated sequel to the summer 2010 worldwide box-office success ($274 million worldwide).
“Sometimes on set you stand outside your own character, and you say, God, this is The Terminator over here, and John McClane over there. We’re all shooting together at the same time. It’s all of us working together in tandem like we should have done years ago. But maybe it's good that we waited this long. Cause now it's going to be well worth it!”, said Sylvester Stallone.
With a budget of 100 million dollars, it was damn worth it!
“One thing is for sure – we’ll never see this again. Everyone in this movie has had a very stellar career and to get all of us together at one time is a minor miracle. It’s never happened before and it will never happen again. This is going to be quite an experience for the audience and hopefully people are going to appreciate for years to come”, adds Stallone.
