As loyal Defamer readers will know, there are a lot of reasons to be excited for The Expendables — joined now by the potential to watch Sylvester Stallone literally explode onscreen.

Tattoos aside, 62-year-old Stallone's human growth hormone-aided physique hasn't changed that much from that which took a merciless heavyweight pummeling three years ago in Rocky Balboa or punched enemy heads from their pencil necks last year in Rambo. But while we long ago gave up any hope of a less chemically cut Stallone setting an example for younger moviegoers, we're most worried now about the imminent influence on his more organically athletic Expendables co-star Jason Statham. Or, more dangerous yet, the Adonis that is Forest Whitaker; he's worked on that body way too hard for way too long to throw it all away on an old man's whim.
