Round two of the 1980s action hero retirement road show features full-on supporting roles for Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis, but Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham are still the least expendable players in the game. Simon West takes over directing duties from co-screenwriter Stallone and gets the added benefit of what could be a fun villainous turn from the Muscles from Brussels, Mr. Jean-Claude Van Damme, which can only make The Expendables 2 the last must-see event of the summer, right? And there’s already talk of a sequel with Harrison Ford, Nicholas Cage, Clint Eastwood and Wesley Snipes as likely additions. Yippee-ki-yay! Opens wide Aug. 17. (R) Not screened for review
