'The Expendables 2'
(Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, et al / R / 103 mins)

Overview: The Expendables return with a vengeance in this follow-up to the 2010 surprise hit. The Mechanic's Simon West directed from a script by Sylvester Stallone and David Agosto. Liam Hemsworth heads up the rest of the starring cast, which includes returning members Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, and Terry Crews, along with fellow '80s action icons Jean-Claude Van Damme and Chuck Norris.

Verdict: "Never Mess with a Classic"! One of my favorite lines from the film. And with this cast, E2 is DEFINITELY a classic. The one-liners are fun as are the jabs at each of the action stars previous rolls. (Arnold and Bruce's dialog in the final fight scene is definitely worth the price of admission.)

And as sick as it sounds, it was nice to actually see blood when the bullets struck. Not something you see in today's films, which are just as if not more violent. Oh, and Jason Statham is poetry in motion in his fight scenes!

Will they be too old for Expendables 3?! I f**kin' hope not!!
