Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham and Jean-Claude Van Damme in new images from The Expendables 2
Sure, THE EXPENDABLES completely relies on the nostalgia of those of us in our 30’s and 40’s that long for the days of 80’s action movies, but the fact remains that we just can’t turn away. I didn’t really like the first one, but I’m still looking forward to THE EXPENDABLES 2. Of the new additions to the cast, I’m most excited for Jean-Claude Van Damme, who’s films were a staple of my early teenage years and I’d love to see the guy make a come back in theatrical movies. I don’t mind his B-movies, but he deserves better. I know Chuck Norris has his fans, but I’m okay if he remains in obscurity.
THE EXPENDABLES 2 stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Dolph Lundgren, Liam Hemsworth, Chuck Norris, Yu Nan and Jean-Claude Van Damme. The Simon West directed film hits theaters everywhere on August 17th, 2012.
