Stallone, Statham, Rourke, Lundgren,
Couture and Crews return as hard-edged but noble mercenaries
in the second installment of Sylvester Stallone's old-school
action thriller, The Expendables.
As payback for taking out the
corrupt CIA agent Monroe (Eric Roberts) in the first Expendables,
cagey Agent Church (Bruce Willis) forces the Expendables to do
an "easy mission": retrieve a missing CIA package from
Gazak, a civil war torn country in Easter Europe.
The easy mission turns deadly
when the Expendables are ambushed by a team of ruthless rival
mercs, the Sangunaires, competing to get the same package. Tool
(Mickey Rourke), the heart and souleof the Expendables, is brutally
murdered by Vilain, the leader of the bloodthirsty guns for hire.
Still, the Expendables manage to pull of the mission and return
with the CIA package, but it's a hollow victory.
As their thoughts turn from grief
to revenge, Tool's beautiful young daughter Fiona shows up. Cut
from the same stone as her dad, she wants to join the Expendables
when they hunt down Vilain and his men. Barney (Stallone) promises
her the Expendables will avenge Tool's death, but will not risk
putting his best friend's daughter in harm's way.
Fiona, who is young and wile,
embarks on her own revenge mission, complicating matters for
Barney when she is captured and ransomed by VIlain. Now Barney
and the expendables must risk everything to save her, kidnapping
CIA Agent Church and pulling off a daring heist of the CIA package
they were hired to bring back.
When Agent Church reveals why
the CIA package is so valuable to Vilain, the stakes go up even
higher. Inside the package are canisters of radioactive cesium
which Vilain has been tasked with releasing on the people's uprising
that threatens the thirty year rule of Gazak's vicious dictator,
The Expendables, along with Agent
Church, are now faced with an impossible mission: rescue Fiona,
foil a dictator's vicious plot to kill scores of innocent people,
and avenge the death of one of their own.
