Stolen Trailer


Will Montgomery has just been released from jail after an eight year sentence for participating in a bank robbery of $10 million that left him duped and ultimately trapped. He left behind his young daughter, Alison Loeb, who is now 14-years-old and has mixed feelings about her father returning and trying to bond with her. His attempt at leading an ordinary and straight life out of incarceration is disrupted when his former partner in crime, Vincent, kidnaps Alison and locks in the back of a soundproof taxi cab on Mardi Gras day so she's not likely to be noticed. Vincent, angered that he never received his share of the bank robbery loot and believing that it was hidden before Will went to prison, demands the $10 million as ransom with the threat of harm coming to Alison. Will is given 24 hours to hand over the cash, however in spite of what Vincent and FBI agent Tim Harlend believe, the money was burned and he no longer has a penny. He is forced to enlist the help of the stunning Riley Jeffers to help him attempt a robbery in order to rescue his daughter.

The Expendables 2 Trailer


Mr Church reunites the Expendables: Barney Ross; Lee Christmas; Yin Yang; Gunnar Jensen; Toll Road and Hale Caesar for a simple job. They are joined by two newcomers: Billy the Kid and Maggie. All in all, it looks like an easy paycheck for the Expendables. But things aren't always what they appear to be and when one of their own is brutally killed, the men set out to get revenge.

The Expendables are a group of highly trained mercenaries who are past their prime. In their last adventure, they get together for a mission to overthrow a Latin American dictator in Vilena, an island in between the Gulf of Mexico and South America.

Chinese actress Yu Nan joins the cast as the first female Expendable, while Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger expand their cameos as Mr Church and Trent Mauser, respectively. The Expendables 2 is directed by Simon West (Con Air; Lara Croft: Tomb Raider) and was written by Sylvester Stallone, who directed the first film, which was released in 2010. Upon its release, The Expendables was a box office hit, grossing $266,159,621 worldwide, despite mixed reviews from critics.

The Expendables are back and this time it's personal.

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider Review


Terrible
The now-classic video game Tomb Raider is a geek boy's dream -- a hot heroine with Barbie-like measurements goes on adventures and kicks ass. The film adaptation, starring the buxom and bored Angelina Jolie, is nobody's dream. It's billed as an action fantasy, but possesses no physical excitement or wonder. OK, maybe some wonder, as in, "I wonder how Paramount actually feels about this film."

Even the teen hormones that live in all us guys are squashed by this one. Jolie, trying to play our heroine Lady Lara Croft as sexy and supercool, just looks mildly amused by the goings-on. I half expected her to check her watch while on camera, searching for lunch or a better project. [Never underestimate crafty film editing. -Ed.]
