There are very few directors that could pull off the intense production of the new 80’s “shoot ‘em up” revival film The Expendables 2 (2012). Thankfully to Sylvester Stallone and the rest of the all-star cast, they have Simon West. West is well known for his directorial work in such films as Con Air (1997) and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001).
Needless to say, the man is capable of creating action-packed sequences that will make the audience squeamish for some real action in their own lives. Partnered with a screenwriter from a previously acclaimed film, The Expendables 2 (2012) is bound to be successful.
