But then I saw the trailer. It looks so unbelievably run-of-the-mill, uninspired, and cliché that it teeters on near unintentional parody.
The studio even fired Thomas Jane as Stallone's side-kick (solely because they felt that the cast needed "more color") and that really disappointed the hell out of me. I like the Asian kid from the Fast & The Furious movies as much as the next guy, but needlessly shoe-horning ethnic diversity into the movie just for the sake of it kind of left a bad taste in my mouth. Seeing Jane and Stallone kick ass together was a bit of a mini-dream of mine, and now I likely won't ever get to see it (unless Sly is smart enough to grab Thom for the next inevitably disappointing Expendables outing, I guess).
