The Expendables 2
Back for War.
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.
Is there a film-making equivalent of the Special Olympics? If so, here's my ballot:
Outstanding Performance in a Motion Picture (Drama) - Jean-Claude Van Damme
Outstanding Performance in a Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy [unintentional]) - Arnold Schwarzenegger
Worst Actor - Terry Crews
Worst Supporting Actor - Terry Crews
Person Who Gave Such A God Damn Awful Performance, It Can't Rightly be Called 'Acting' - Randy Couture
Most Understandable Accent - Jason Statham
Least Likely To Succeed - Terry Crews
Most Likely To Have Had His 4-Year Old Grandson Write The Dialogue - Sylvester Stallone
Winner of the 'What The Fuck Are You Doing In This Movie?' Award - Jet Li
Best Cameo - Chuck Norris
Most Likely To Have…
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.
My biggest issue with the first Expendables movie was that with such an incredible cast of action legends past and present, it didn't hold true to the over-the-top, comically violent action cinema it was trying to evoke nostalgia for. The Expendables 2, I'm glad to say, sees Sylvester Stallone finally realise that - and while his sequel don't get me wrong suffers all the same creative issues as the first, it's triple the fun across the board. If you loved the films Stallone, Arnie, Willis, Norris et al... became famous for, there is no way you won't spend most of this with a broad, beaming smile.
Stallone wisely ejects too much of the cod-philosophising he infused the first film with…
I was going to review this film, but I think someone already summed up this film in the best way possible...
"This movie is big, dumb, and retarded just like Sylvester Stallone's forearms but you know what? If I had the chance to jerk off with those forearms, I'd still have fun which I did with this movie."

Yeah, that's probably the best way to describe this. Big, dumb, and loads of fun.
This sequel to the 2010 blockbuster arrives with a bang. The Expendables are back and immediately reintroduce themselves in a blistering hail of bullets and destruction. Five minutes in and the body count must have hit at least 50.
Yes the boys are definitely back in town and looking to ignite the screen once more with blood, machismo and cheesy one liners at every available opportunity. I loved this movie.
This movie is complete fantasy of course. A ridiculous theatrical action fantasy that rattles and creeks along, flexing its big budget muscles and delivering outstanding explosive blood stained action set pieces all the way through its pumped and ripped storyline. There are plenty of laughs and a few tears to…
Big. Loud. Dumb. Action.
The Expendables 2 is everything I hoped the first one would be and wasn't.
Van Damme and Chuck Norris also added to the fun.
If you're watching this you already know exactly what you're in for.
the third star is only because of the entrance of chuck norris
An action packed homoerotic thriller where the concept of American masculinity is defined in a bukkake of bullets and tired one-liners.
Personally speaking, wasn't a big admirer of the first installment which was a strictly mediocre action film with poor production values despite its stellar cast. But things have got better in the second installment where Simon West has taken over the director's cap from Sylvester Stallone who tried just to make it another massacre flick in the first part.
Plot is straightforward and has nothing exciting to offer for any action movie buffs. But this time around, there was the much needed emotional depth added to the franchise in decent manner, thanks to West's direction. Screenplay co-written by Stallone was just passable with an uninteresting 30 minutes in the beginning, but gets back in control once the revenge part undergoes…
Vispār, es liktu 2, jo Mailijas bijušā boifrenda parādīšanās filmā, kurā pārējie ir visiem zināmi krutie likās vnk stulba. Taču, Čaks Noriss viens pats nopelna vienu zvaigzni, jo viņš ir Čaks Noriss.
Citādi filma ir ļoti līdzīga iepriekšējai. Tikai vēl šādas tādas ietastās klišejas par kurām pasmieties.
Good to see that the faults identified during first sighting are crytsal clear during second chance.
Obviously has too many lengthy boring scenes. Action is good, too much cgi however.
Why do I put myself through this? I liked the first Expendables and thought I would give it a try. Should have known better although some parts were pretty funny! The appearance of Chuck Norris ... classic!
And the last part where Stallone said the plane belongs in a museum and Arnold says, we all do!! aaahhaaa!
Think The Expendables, but bigger and louder and with a much better bad guy.
