DVD The Expendables 2: This is a Road Runner cartoon for the bloody-minded, a wise-cracking cavalcade of carnage that hurls bulletproof heroes at the villains, defies the laws of physics and treats us to so much bloodshed that it's only natural that some of it should spatter on the lens. But it holds together, more or less, right up to the moment Chuck Norris and his dyed beard make their preposterous appearance. It's a moment that lowers the bar on stupid for the rest of the picture. Sly 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 played by Bruce Willis, one more assignment for "your little gang of psychotic mutts." These expendable mercenaries -- Stallone, Jason Statham, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, the redeemed Dolph Lundgren, the mostly absent Jet Li -- avenge their own. On DVD and Blu-ray.
