Poster for "The Expendables 2"

FilmWonk rating: 6.5/10

Show notes:

  • Music for this episode comes from the score to the The Expendables by Brian Tyler.
  • The director of photography for this film is Shelly Johnson.
  • We referred to this rumor from back in January, which stated that the film had been edited down to be PG-13 in order to secure the participation of Chuck Norris. According to director Simon West last week, that rumor was never true.
  • Nope, it appears Jean-Claude Van Damme has never ripped anyone’s heart out on film. But he has done this
  • If you absolutely must see a heart-rip, here’s the dude from Temple of Doom. Or here’s Jim Carrey.
  • Correction: Our first podcast was in August 2010, making this our two-year anniversary show!
