Some pretty nicely rendered weapons in it, too.



(click for 1980x1080)

Underbarrel thing is a particle cannon, also fitted with a striking muzzle seemingly just because a regular one was too boring. Apparently the gripped PMAG there is a real thing, some company called Rainier makes adhesive non-slip coated pads to go in the gaps of PMAGs.

I played a demo of the Expendables 2 video game last night. It wasn't bad, I'm just not sure it's worth $15. If it goes on sale though, I'd consider it.

Saw the Expendables 2 last night. It was pretty good. The best part was of course the scenes with Chuck. Also saw the trailer for Jack Reader, and am a bit miffed that Tom Cruise is playing Jack Reader, who in the books is about six-six and 250 pounds of silent kick ass.

Guess The Rock wasn't available

The Expendables 2 movie was just fun. You are not supposed to pay attention to the story, what little of it and enjoy the action. I wish Jet Li was in it longer. They kinda wrote him off 15 minutes into the film.

I also wished the paired weapons of Norris and Arnold with their respective movies. Like Arnold busting out a Desert Eagle after emptying an old fashion M16 with the grenade launcher and Norris with that G3 from Delta Force 2. Bruce Willis should have pulled out a Beretta 92 after he was done with his rifle. It would have been awesome to see Stallone go at it with an M60 like old times

A remake I could live with.

I may have been reading too much into it, but I thought Chuck using the G-36 with underslung grenade launcher was a shout out to his -91 from MIA: 3.

Heck, I would have liked him to use his Scout Rifle from Lone Wolf MacQuade

Norris didn't have a grenade launcher, he just had a G36C

I'm sold. God forbid Eddie Murphy actually star in something people might want to watch.
