This gang of ‘vintage’ soldiers are back once again and this time it’s personal.
Barney (Sylvester Stallone) is called to do a job which seems to be a simple task for a quick paycheck and convinces the team (Chuck Norris, , Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Jason Statham and Terry Crews) to re-unite. The plan is put in motion but to their shock and horror things go bust and one of their own gets killed.
High expectations are a must for this supreme group of aged heroes but it all becomes a bit laughable and not because they are funny in the least. On the other hand if you grew up emulating these action men then you will definitely be able to look past the cheesy moments and just appreciate the grouping of these adored fighters in one ring.
All in all, the fans of this genre will still be blown away by the bullets, explosions and buff bodies.
