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…
"Ironic. Here we are you and I, and your knife. You're going to die, like him. What was his name? What did you call him? What does it matter?" - Jean Vilain
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…

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

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.

Barney (Sylvester Stallone), Lee (Jason Statham) and the rest of the Expendables get together when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) hires them for a job. What starts as a routine assignment turns into a revenge mission when one of there own is murdered. More high adrenaline fun, with some great one liners and knowing winks to the audience for action fans. It's not Shakespeare, but who cares when you have all these awesome stars together dodging explosions and taking down bad guys.
I was expecting tons of excitement and action and explosions and murder. But what did I get? Unnecessary drama and cheesy dialogue. Any exchange of words between the characters was just coated with a grossly thick layer of cheese. Chuck Norris' appearance was incredibly disappointing and lame. The references to his own meme was especially lame, if not pathetic. At least Van Damme played a fairly sinister villain, but his name was Vilain and that just was just ridiculous. His death was also ridiculous but also very anticlimactic. But whatever. I guess there was enough violence to mask some of the cheesiness.
A little bit better than the first film and I say that because it at least kept me awake. Still, the bar should not be this low. I dread watching the next film.
"Yippee-kay-yey!" - Arnold Schwarzenegger
La primera parte es una reunión de colegas que aprovechan para medirse las pollas. Esta es una oda a las películas de acción de los 80 y 90. Una auténtica gozada.
I have seen many bad guys earn gruesome deaths, but never in my life have I seen someone with as much coming to them as a mean-spirited Satanic Super-Terrorist Van Damme kicking knives into people's chest with a name that is just "villain" with a Belgian accent.
Although in all fairness if you are a satanist martial artist named Vilain, "super-terrorist" is pretty much all you can do in life.
Mejor que la primera porque cumple mejor con su premisa. Lo que era una historia de redención en la 1, como motivo para LA MASACRE que vamos a ver, aquí es una típica historia de venganza ante la muerte de uno de los integrantes del equipo, el más joven, prometedor y bueno de ellos, en un intento del film de crear una legítima ansia vengativa. A mí me da igual. Aunque se lamenta la perdida del intento de introspección que hiciera Stallone en la peli anterior, vamos a ser sincero, no hemos venido para eso, sino para ver machorros fornidos matando malosos random. Una sencillita historia de venganza suple esto con la sencillez necesaria. ¿Una excusa argumental más típica que…
I rated this movie 1.5 stars but liked it because it is, to me, so bad that it is good. This movie is absolutely insane. It features many cringeworthy references to older action films; a typical bad performance from Sly, The Muscles from Brussels, and Dolph Lundgren; more cringeworthy one-liners; and less than good CGI. This movie is enjoyable, but not for people who aren't violence fans or want to watch a good movie. In conclusion, this movie is an incredibly stupid fun time.
I'm trying to come up with new watchlists for myself. I love checking off titles as I try and complete…
originally this list had a very specific focus- now it's basically just english-language action cinema post-matrix.
