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.
After all the credits have been shown, two short scenes are shown. One is an outtake of one of the last fight scenes, where an unexpected punch is delivered between two women, the other scene is a very short montage of the presidential character posing with guns. See more »
Director Robert Rodriguez brings back Machete (Danny Trejo) in this grindhouse sequel. This time the US President (Charlie Sheen) has asked Machete to kill a Mexican crime lord who wants to launch a nuke at Washington. Only Voz (Mel Gibson) is the actual brains and has an even crazier plan.
I do love the opening coming attraction. It has the most joy and comedy. The feature is silly, but not silly enough to make me laugh. It's never funny in the traditional sense. Danny Trejo is too serious, and mean looking. He's just not a comedian. And the shock of the B-movie schlock is gone now. The originality of seeing something different isn't there anymore.
Every once in awhile, Rodriguez comes upon a funny setup like blowing up the wheelchair guy with a rocket. And there is nothing wrong with a girl fight between Michelle Rodriguez and Amber Heard. Although I think Charlie Sheen could be even crazier, Mel Gibson is too crazy. It's a movie where I could watch the opening multiple times, but once is enough for the rest.
