Sly Stallone – renaissance man or expensive saddlebag?

Sly, I love you, but you’re turning into Tony Bennett.  It’s really quite eerie.

Look everybody – there’s a new trailer for “The Expendables 2” (presented via the kind intercession of YouTube and IGN‘s channel).

Subtlety is not on the agenda, as you might expect (or, indeed, hope).  Lots of things exploding, stunts aplenty and old dudes cracking wise – we’re in comfortable territory.

I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest that the only way to top the bonkers explosions and stunts in this trailer will be to take the next movie into outer space.   It’ll be like the Clint Eastwood vehicle “Space Cowboys“, only with more detonations and absurdly large, probably overcompensating range of firearms.   I can see it now….

As previously stated in an earlier post, “The Expendables 2” opens on August 17th – the perfect way to spend an aimless late summer afternoon for discerning middle-aged geeks and the younger nerd set alike.
