Your comment reminded me that Hollywood killed off the awesome Donnie Yen in no time at all back in Blade II, while the other "Blood Pack" members got more decent screen times. Sigh.....

And yeah. Still looking forward for this movie .

The racial dynamics of the good old US of A reminds me of THIS little old speech by Chris Rock earlier this year:


And in Jet Li's case "You don't get no respect as an Asian actor on the white-man's stage unless you play a DOG."

The Chinese actress Yu Nan's playing another rookie Expendables mercenary alongside Liam Hemsworth. Though I wish they provide more info on her.

Well, if Stallone makes either her or Jet Li silent lawn ornaments AGAIN with no personality or hopes and dreams like the black and white Expendables, and/or weaklings who need a black or white warrior to finish their fights for them.....

One gets the awful sinking feeling that they "brother they ae avenging" that was "savagely murdered" will be Jet Li's character, considering

1) The utter LACK of emphasis on him doing ANYTHING in the trailers.

2) His scenes were all filmed in China (implying complete disconnection from the rest of the plot)

Do remember it is an American Action Movie using old American Action Movie stars from mostly the 1980s. They didn't have to have any Asians to reach their target demographic. Consider it fortunate that Jet Li is in it at all.

I wonder if Chester E. Bum's balls will eat a wild boar again.

Looking forward to the Bum Reviews, his review for the first Expendables was his best ever.
I like the Bum over his regular Nostalgia Critic skits.

Ok guys, I am gonna have to ask you to chill out some. Remember that this is just a movie... a movie you can decide not to watch.

Looks like some extra fun for the summer...well, I'm a Jet Li fan too, but I've preferred his movies with a martial arts focus, so I'm watching this for everyone else in it.

More punchlines and explosions for everyone, can't complain :P
