The Expendables are back in a sequel that Steve Weintraub of COLLIDER calls "bigger, badder and better than the first one!" The team signs on for a mission that looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But things go wrong fast and one of their own is killed by a psychotic terrorist for hire. Hell-bent on payback, they cut a swath of destruction through enemy territory and wreak havoc upon their opponents. In the midst of the mayhem, they must also shut down an unexpected threat in the nick of time - prevent five tons of weapons-grade plutonium from falling into the wrong hands.

I'll definitely rent this since I missed it in theaters....I might be headed back to Best Buy sometime this week to grab the original since it can be had for $5 with the trade and save program...plus it comes with a dvd copy that I can sell to my pops so essentially its a free blu ray...I'm just not in a rush, I mildly enjoyed the first one but was not that impressed.
