In The Expendables 2 the team are sent in by Church because of the mess they made in Valena (he'd originally tried to hire the team to kill the General who ran the island).

However after Barney and Lee's scouting trip to the island they agreed to turn the job down. Why (assuming they didn't take money off Church) did they owe him anything for their subsequent mischief?

I'm not sure I get what you're asking. They turned the job down but then still got entangled in all the chaos that happened in Ex 1 and caused major trouble. So why should Church not be angry at them? The question is, did the story of Ex 1 turn out in the way Church wanted, which I'm currently not sure of. –  Napoleon Wilson Aug 29 '14 at 13:54
@SonnyBurnett I guess I'm just confused why they owe him if they didn't take the job. Even if they did Church wanted the general dead. Which happened - for free! He must have known their would be collateral, this is Stallone after all! –  Liath Aug 29 '14 at 13:55
