QUICK TAKE:
Action: When one of their own is killed during a seemingly simple job, a group of mercenaries seek revenge only to find an unexpected threat from a villainous adversary.
PLOT:
After his crew ends up unknowingly rescuing another mercenary, Trench (ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER), during a hostage rescue mission, mercenary team leader Barney Ross (SYLVESTER STALLONE) gets a new assignment from his shady CIA operative contact, Church (BRUCE WILLIS). It seems that a Chinese plane went down in Albania carrying a safe that the CIA doesn't want to fall into the wrong hands, and if Barney and his team can retrieve it, his $5 million debt to Church will be forgotten.

The only catch is that technical expert Maggie (YU NAN) will replace departed member Yin Yang (JET LI) and thus join Barney's otherwise all-male crew that includes Lee Christmas (JASON STATHAM), Hale Caesar (TERRY CREWS), Toll Road (RANDY COUTURE), Gunnar Jensen (DOLPH LUNDGREN) and new kid on the block, Billy "the kid" Timmons (LIAM HEMSWORTH).

They find the safe and retrieve it, only to have Jean Vilain (JEAN-CLAUDE VAN DAMME) and his nefarious crew intercept them. The villain takes the safe's content -- a blueprint to the location of five tons of weapons-grade plutonium -- and kills one of Barney's team before departing. From that point on, and with the aid of Trench, Church and lone-wolf mercenary Booker (CHUCK NORRIS), Barney and his team set out to stop the villain and get revenge on him and his men.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
They might if they're into actions films and/or are fans of the first "Expendables" movie and/or anyone in the cast.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For strong bloody violence throughout.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
