The Expendables 2
102 minutes

Things go boom, bad guys go ouch, Stallone grunts, and Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren are in the movie; see it in theaters if you find an extra $10 in your laundered blue jeans, and if you don’t need the money for beer or food.

The Expendables 2 Lovable Freight Train From Hell gets a wide release on Friday, August 17. The film is rated R for shit exploding. Click here for local showtimes and tickets.
