    Watch: Strange and Bruising Red Band Trailer for 'Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning' (VIDEO)

    Even with its abundance of machine-gun fire, sculpted upper bodies, and "Street Fighter" style hand-to-hand combat, the new trailer for John Hyams's "Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning" would seem, at a glance, to showcase a strange, bruising horror flick, rather than the fourth installment of a Je...

    Review: Jean-Claude Van Damme Shines In The Moronically Irresistible Entertainment Of ‘Expendables 2’

    “The Expendables 2” is one of the very few films that gets better as it gets dumber. Serviceably directed, horribly written and barely acted at all except for a standout performance by (of all people) Jean-Claude Van Damme, it mostly delivers in the way that the original failed to, which...

    Review: Jean Claude Van Damme & Cung Le Pic 'Dragon Eyes' Features Impressive Action, Empty Story

    Hong, the lead character in “Dragon Eyes,” might as well be a Man Without A Name when he wanders into the small town of St. Jude. He seeks a second chance, an opportunity to atone for past violent misdeeds seen in fuzzy flashback. It doesn’t take long for the viewer to realize this means a lot of pe...

    Adam Brody To Star In Neil LaBute Penned & Produced 'Some Girls'; Lands 'Welcome To The Jungle'

    Former “The O.C.” heartthrob Adam Brody has come a long way from his days of covering for bad boy buddy Ryan Atwood in the privileged California community. Since his breakout turn in the Fox drama, he’s stolen the show in everything from big budget blockbusters like “Mr. &...

    Watch: Beverly Hills Retirement Home Holds Paintball Contest In Teaser Trailer For 'The Expendables 2'

    Listen. Carefully. On the wind. Can you hear something? A creak of bone. A distant cough. Someone complaining that they haven't taken their pills, asking if you remembered to record "NCIS," and saying how their grandkids are going to show them how to use the Google. That's right, S...

    New 'Expendables 2' Poster Will Impregnate You And Every One Of Your Friends, Male And Female

    If "The Expendables" meant anything (and, aside from some serviceable action sequences, it didn't really), it was a chance to see a group of action icons interacting with each other, with several scenes imbued with the baggage brought from the filmographies of all those involved. Come ...

    Stallone Says He Might Get Nic Cage & John Travolta For 'The Expendables 2' If Schedules Permit

    Chuck Norris & Jean-Claude Van Damme Confirmed, Are Michael Biehn And Michael Pare In The Mix Too?"The Expendables" having proven successful enough in its collection of elderly ass-kickers to get a sequel green-lit, it was clear that creator/writer/star Sylvester Stallone would have to raise his game for the second go-round. First of all, with not all the stars returning (it looks like Jet Li won't be back, for one), it would help to draft in a few more action icons to help make up the numbers. And secondly, with the first film being somewhat subpar, and the less than amazing Simon West ("Con Air," "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider") replacing Stallon...
