"The Expendables 2" movie quotes provide breaks in the action in the star-studded sequel directed by Simon West. The second film in the series brings back the biggest names in the action genre as the Hollywood heavyweights are back as the elite mercenaries first introduced in "The Expendables" in 2010.
To say that this film is packed with stars might just be an understatement. Sylvester Stallone, who directed the first film and stars in both, described getting all of these stars together at one time as "a minor miracle." Indeed, the big names starring in "The Expendables 2" are plenty. Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Liam Hemsworth, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger all join Stallone in this film from Lionsgate.
In "The Expendables 2," Mr. Church (Willis) tasks the group of mercenaries to keep a very important package of plutonium out of the wrong hands. Led by Barney Ross (Stallone), the Expendables use all means of force necessary to keep that volatile substance away from an opposing team of mercenaries led by Jean Vilain (Van Damme). But their main crew isn't enough and they have to recruit some new bodies to complete the job. Sniper Bill 'the Kid' Timmons (Hemsworth) is just the man to round out the team.Certainly action movies are not for everyone so if something a bit lighter is more your speed, the summer 2012 movie season also features comedies and other fun films such as "The Campaign," "The Babymakers," "Ted," "Celeste and Jesse Forever," "Madea's Witness Protection," and "Magic Mike."
I Need a Weapon
Trent Mauser: "I need a weapon, yours."
Hale Caesar: "My big weapon's hanging right where it is."
What's the Plan?
Lee Christmas: "What's the plan?"
Barney Ross: "Track 'em, find 'em, kill 'em."
Trent Mauser: "I'm back!"Making a play on his famous threat of "I'll be back" in "The Terminator," actor Arnold Schwarzenegger announces in "The Expendables 2" that finally, he is back. Clever or cheesy? You decide.
Are You Afraid of Me?
Jean Vilain: "Are you afraid of me? You should be."In another instance where the movie quote is slightly more about the outside world not the actual movie plot, Jean-Claude Van Damme, playing the main antagonist Jean Vilain, speaks Sylvester Stallone, playing Expendables leader Barney Ross. The quote plays on what Stallone called "a big showdown between me and Van Damme, which has been anticipated for a long time."
