Film critic Scott Mendelson weighing in on the just-released trailer for Sylvester Stallone's THE EXPENDABLES 2:
Mendelson's Memos: The Expendables 2 trailer looks fun, but will a sl...: This looks like more of the same, which is just fine by me. The first film was just a little better than I expected, offering a fantasy ...
As for me, the trailer indicates that Stallone, in handing off direction to Simon West, has infused the film with the kind of tongue-in-cheek gonzo which West brought to Jerry Bruckheimer's CON AIR fifteen years ago.
Unlike Mendelson, I don't have problems with Arnold winking at the camera.
