The Expendables 2

Bigger, better, badassier.


Action

Rod Lott
Preceding the start of The Expendables 2 is an ad for its tie-in video game. Why bother playing such a thing when so many sequences of the the movie make you feel like you're doing so already? I mean that as a compliment, because as directed by Simon West (The Mechanic), the sequel’s 15-minute prologue is so unrelenting in nonstop action that it’s likely to turn you giddy.

Dredd

Don't ‘Dredd’ this souped-up sci-fi reboot.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Like The Punisher, Judge Dredd serves as judge, jury and executioner, all rolled into one. Like The Punisher, Judge Dredd also received a cinematic reboot in an attempt to right precious filmmakers’ wrongs.

Bullet to the Head

Action's once more on the Sly.


Action

Rod Lott
Lines of cocaine, tubes of neon, Sylvester Stallone: Is this 1986 or 2013? In his first solo vehicle since his Expendables comeback, Sly shoots for a Bullet to the Head, but the action film only breaks the skin, so to speak.

Escape Plan

Sly and Arnie, bar none.


Action

Rod Lott
Back in the mid-1980s, when Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger were box-office rivals, a true pairing of the two — Expendables ensembles don't count — would have grossed millions of kajillions of dollars.

Homefront

Home is where the Stath is.


Action

Rod Lott
From screenwriter Sylvester Stallone comes Homefront, at one time developed as a Rambo sequel, but somewhere along the way handed off as a vehicle for fellow Expendable Jason Statham.
