The Expendables 2

The Expendables 2
-CIA agent Church wants Barney Ross and his "Expendables" to go on a mission. They are being hired as guns for hire to go to the former Soviet Union to retrieve an item lost on a plane crash. Along with them comes a woman named Maggie. She is going to simply make sure they get what they came for.

-They find the plane and get their desired object, but one of Barney's team members is taken hostage by some mysterious men. They demand that Barney give them the item or their hostage is killed. Barney asks Maggie why it was so important to them. She reveals that it was a map showing the way to a Russian plutonium storage mine.
