Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.
It's not, it's a romantic drama and a good one at that. The setting against low class France and its different immigrant groups is excellent but the story is classic of course. I would very much have enjoyed some more depth towards the story of the two siblings, more of a social look at their destiny in their new homeland perhaps, the elements are there and that would have put the film in the top. Now i give it a 7 but it's still very close to a 8 or maybe even 9. I recommend it to the cineast thus meaning people who know how to appreciate both a "foreign" film and a good fighting flick, if you're out for some good knuckle action you should seek elsewhere.
