Cineplex Goofs On “Expendables 2” Premier
Yesterday movie lovers were heartbroken after Cineplex cancelled the premiering of the much-anticipated blockbuster “Expendables 2” movie.
The premier, which had been hyped to an extent that many lovers had set dates for the night and tickets selling like hot cakes, was due Friday.
However, at the last minute, Cineplex issued a statement: “THE EARLIER ADVERTISED DATE FOR THE EXPENDABLES 2 , HAS BEEN CHANGED TO 19th AUG ( THIS SUNDAY ).”
Insiders, however, tell us that the whole mess was caused by a lax in communication between Ciniplex, their contact and courier.
This left many wondering how they could be this ineffective.
According to Tribune News Service, "Expendables 2" is a too-cute trip down Action Film Memory Lane and has one past-his-expiration-date action hero too many for its own good.
Still, it holds together, more or less, right up until the moment when Chuck Norris and his dyed beard make their preposterous appearance. The arrival of Norris lowers the bar on stupid for the rest of the picture.
Sylvester Stallone and his team bring their soldier-for-hire thing to Nepal, Albania and environs this time around. There's a debt to be paid to the spy boss (Bruce Willis), who has one more assignment for this "little gang of psychotic mutts." And there's a Belgian-accented heavy (Jean Claude Van Damme), all sunglasses and big knives and a high kick waiting to happen.
The expendable mercenaries -- Stallone, Jason Statham, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Jet Li and Dolph Lundgren -- avenge their own. When somebody in their ranks dies, Stallone has three things to say about the bad guy who did this: "Track 'em. Find 'em. Kill 'em."
