John McClane travels to Russia to help out his seemingly wayward son, Jack, only to discover that Jack is a CIA operative working undercover, causing the father and son to team up against underworld forces.
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.
You don't watch a series like this expecting a life-changing experience or Shakespearean wit, but I was at least hoping for some mindlessly entertaining action and crime solving. Unfortunately, this programme couldn't even deliver that. The acting is very flat, the script is nonsensical and the plot makes no sense. The Angels seem to have been picked based on their looks and willingness to wear skimpy clothes rather than any particular charisma or talent. Even if you're building your series around providing eye candy, you still need some comic relief, some witty dialogue, or at least something to concentrate on during yet another motion-sickness inducing shaky-cam sequence.
I would be really surprised if this disaster lasts more than a season or two.
