Barney Ross is approached by CIA man Church, who wants him and his guns for hire to go to the former Soviet Union to retrieve something that was on a plane that crashed. Church doesn't tell him what he is getting. And Church sends a woman, Maggie with him to make sure he gets it. They find the plane and get the thing but some men take one of Barney's people hostage and the leader tells him to give him what they got or he'll kill his hostage. They give it to him but he kills his hostage anyway. Barney asks Maggie what was so important about that thing. She says that it showed the location of a Russian plutonium storage mine. Barney decides to track the man down and deal with him. They track them down and discover that the man they seek is Vilain who leads a group known as The Sangs and that they have taken all the men from the surrounding villages to work the mine. Written by
The credits show images of the actors. When each image appears the skull shows first then the rest of the actors image fades in. When Arnold Schwarzenegger's image appears the top right hand side of his face is last to disappear and there is a light in his eye. Referencing the poster for The Terminator where you can see the metal skull and glowing red eye. See more »
How many more awful ego-fest Stallone movies will we have to endure before his knumb-skull fanbase run out of reasons to watch? ExpII continues the rambo/expendables silliness of some old farts who can apparently take out scores of younger bad guys. There's a lot of gore and a lot of cheap explosions, but once again it's ridiculously bad. The story was absolutely retarded, the acting was atrocious. Stallone and Stratham should honestly quit acting. The referential jokes by Arnold and Willis were absolutely pathetic. The old actors all looked way past it, and did not garner any sympathy due to their lack of charisma. I was hoping for Van Damme to wipe them all out, but naturally the lame good guys win, because Stallone must always live in the end, due to some neurotic short-man syndrome or something. Oh yeah the HGH and roids must've been why the budget is so high, because I have no clue where the 100 million dollars went; it looked like something straight to video. 1/10
