Expendables 2

Break out the Bengay, because Sylvester Stallone is back with "The Expendables 2" and he's raided the action movie old folks home to dust off Arnold Schwarznegger, Chuck Norris and more to join his pals and young blood Liam Hemsworth in the last brawny flick.

We'd like to tell you what the plot is but we have no idea, though apparently they have to find a safe or something and "find him, track him, kill him" according to Stallone, whose voice becomes more unintelligble with each passing movie. But you can't say he's not delivering what people expect. This looks in every way to be more amped up than its predecessor with what looks like a considerably larger budget. The story will probably be just as idiotic as before, but if you're looking for things to blow up good and big this summer, it looks like this will be the movie to do just that. Just don't expect any brains or any jokes that go beyond Smart cars and referencing catchphrases that are decades old.

Also: guys, no Steven Seagal yet? What gives? "The Expendable 2" serves up the senior discount on August 17th.  Watch below. [IGN]
