Tear Jerker: The Expendables
  • Billy's death, that is so excruciating and made quite one of the things that became personal for the team.
  • Tool's monologue in the original and Billy's in the second, when they both reveal what made them the shell shocked veterans they are now.
  • There's a certain recognition of the passage of time at the very end of the sequel, when in an extremely meta moment, Barney comments on his new plane, "That belongs in a museum", to which Trench replies "We all do." A recognition that their age is coming towards an end.
