    • The Expendables 2 is presented on 4K UHD courtesy of Lionsgate Films with a 2160p transfer in 2.40:1. Despite being shot on film and finished at a 2K DI like The Expendables 4K, the transition to higher...

    • The 4K UHD disc has no supplementary material, and the score above reflects that deficit. The 1080p Blu-ray also included in this package features all of the supplements detailed in our original The Expendables...

    • Did The Expendables 4 come out and nobody noticed? Perhaps a little unexpectedly, given that they're not tied in to any new theatrical release, Lionsgate is revisiting the first two Expendables films and...

    • The first Expendables was a testosterone-fueled joke, but it was fun. Bringing together a who's who of action stars was an inspired move on Stallone's part. Then there were grumblings by fans who wondered...

    • The Expendables 2 is certainly a fun movie and is much sillier than the first outing. Action sequences are top-notch, but the characters all wink and nod to the cameras quite a bit with their famous one-liners,...
