    Ah......

    I think maybe he had other commitments as he is also appearing in Chinese movies again these days....I am sure he will show up in part 3..

    I reckon for part 3 they should focus on JET and have him go to HK/Asia to recruit the Asian version of the EXPENDABLES...or maybe have it as a spin-off moive!

    Finally saw it....and definitely an improvement over the first!

    Humour is better....action is better......acting is better......New members are cool.....JCVD steals the show.....with Chuck Norris NEARLY beating him!

    Roll on part 3!

    JCVD should have been oscar nominated for this. I am dead serious.

    I also prefer this one to the first. The intentional humor was bad and the rest was unintentionally funny. At least the sequel made me smile a couple of times, but still, it's not what I call quality film making
    And you're right about Van Damme: he was the best thing in it!

    I picked up this one on Blu-ray cheaply (thanks to Play.com's stock liquidation, or whatever they're going through at the moment), and in the deleted scenes Stallone makes even more of a big deal of waving that Leica M9 in front of the camera. It's a nice camera and all, but it's uncomfortably obvious product placement.

    It isnt worse then the blatant Mercedes-Benz wankfest that is running all through A Good day to Die Hard.

    I haven't seen that yet, but will most likely agree with you when I get a chance to watch it

    Watched this again with my dad last night. He hadn't seen it yet. The second time around it still entertained. Good action, cool sound design. Nice scenery.

    I think Van Damme steals the show.
