Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.
Bigger, better & bloodier, The Expendables 2 is an explosive sequel to its predecessor that improves upon the original in almost every department & is a worthy addition to the newly established franchise. Continuing its homage to past action classics, the film hugely improves on the action, violence & humour aspects and the new recruits to its ensemble cast are unquestionably a welcome addition.
The Expendables 2 continues the journey of the notorious band of elite mercenaries who are reunited for a new assignment which seems like a seemingly simple operation but when one of their own is murdered on the job, the mission evolves into a quest for revenge as the group tries to avenge their loss by going one on one…

Round 2. Now how do you go about making a sequel to The Expendables that can live up to the very high standards (a trace of loving sarcasm can be found in this statement) set by the first one? Easy. The blueprint is already there, all you have to do is bring everyone back, amp everything up, give Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis more screen time (unfortunately Jet Li's will have to be reduced but that's understandable), bring in Chuck Norris for a scene-stealing moment and make Jean…

Person Who Gave Such A God Damn Awful Performance, It Can't Rightly be Called 'Acting' - Randy Couture

Six pounds of pure plutonium is powerful enough to change the balance of the world. Imagine what five tons will do.
This is probably the film the first Expendables should have been. The plot is kept simple and tight. There's dialogue that is legitimately funny. There's actual characterization done instead of just trying to make everyone look "cool". Lastly the bad CGI gore is toned down and is actually at an acceptable level this time.
Now if they would have stopped there this would have been a perfect action movie. Unfortunately there's still a few incredibly stupid moments in the film, but the ones that got to me the most was the overuse of meta-jokes. To say they're…
In every way this is better than the first film, and I really, really like the first film, so that's saying something. Easily the most fun I have had in a theater all year.
A movie series made exclusively for dads. Dad jokes. Dad action. A dad story. A cast of like 20 dads and a woman called Liam.
Expendables 2 represents the peak of modern dadcore; a genre that keeps Kevin Costner employed and Walmart dvd shelves fully stocked through Fathers Day.
Speaking of which if you have a basic dad model he might actually enjoy getting an Expendables dvd collection for fathers day. I think ill get my pops the same but maybe replace the dvds with copies of The Danish Girl or posters of Liam Hemsworth.
Boring at times, but other than that it's 1 hour and 43 minutes of pure badassery. All I really need out of a film like this. If you liked the first one, I'm sure you'll find some entertainment out of this one. Actually it's also better than the first IMO.
When we say a movie is a 'guilty pleasure', the key word is 'pleasure', sometimes we all have days when what we want is to just start something up and simply enjoy the experience of seeing it without worrying about parsing meaning, decoding symbolism or whatever.
'The Expendables' (the first one) was exactly that kind of movie. A movie starring a ton of icons from the bygone age of 'bros with big muscles shooting guns and doing kung-fu', doing what they had always done, only this time with a witty self-awareness that they were now old-guys, starring in a ridiculous cash-grab piece of explosion-porn designed expressly to push the nostalgia buttons of 30-somethings like me who grew up watching Arnie…
The Expandables nos prometió violencia old school, acción non-stop y ese humor socarrón que tanto se estilaba en los ochenta, pero no nos dio nada de eso; The Expandables 2 no nos prometía nada, pero nos ha dado violencia old school, acción non-stop, ese humor socarrón que tanto se estilaba en los ochenta y, de regalo, plena autoconsciencia de que es un chiste anacrónico y sin sentido, una fiesta del nabo y la testosterona; el sueño húmedo de quienes crecieron durante los ochenta siguiendo los códigos de la era 4chan.
Ojalá sólo hubiera existido una entrega de la saga y hubiera sido esta.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I could watch Liam Hemsworth having a knife roundhouse kicked into his chest all day 😍😍😍🔪🔪🔪
Ein dämlicher Film – wie sein Vorgänger, aber sehr unterhaltsam. Die erste Viertelstunde hat das perfekte Timing und überzeugt als Action-Parodie. Dieses „Niveau“ hält er aber nicht über seine 100 Minuten aufrecht. Aber letztlich liefert er genau das, was man erwartet hatte: abgehalfterte Action-Stars in einem Action-Gemetzel mit markigen Sprüchen. schoener-denken.de/blog/expendables-2-filmkritik/
Yes, I don't like action movies ! 👍

Much like The Exorcist III, I'm just going to copy+paste my original review for this film seeing as I think it still holds up well on another viewing and I don't think I have anything new to say about it:
Bigger and better than its predecessor, The Expendables 2 is terrific action entertainment with beautifully shot set pieces, hilarious one-liners, a surprisingly coherent plot, and swift pacing.
This is the second instalment of the cock measuring competition that brings all the main bad asses together to blow shit up and then kick and punch everything else.
I'm not going to hurt you, I'm going to take your life.
As action movies go this is everything you could ask for, as a movie this is mediocre. Whether you think I'm biased or not I was expecting a great action film and got a great action film. The Expendables 2 uses the revenge plot which suites this movie well. Not only does it lead to some character chemistry, but it gives the action scenes meaning. Most of the Expendables have more screen time in this movie then in the last one. Plus there is more humor in this movie which makes more likeable characters. The action scenes were awesome, there's not as much action in The Expendables 2, but when it comes around its a blast. The Expendables 2 is a rare action movie that lives up to its predecessor.
I'd love to see more of these stories. REALLY entertaining stuff. If anyone has some, send away.
