Fun and entertaining sequel featuring some of the greatest action stars ever. The line-up alone makes the movie worth watching: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarznegger, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, and Chuck Norris.
Director Simon West does a fairly good job with the material. Though some of the effects look cheap and silly, THE EXPENDABLES 2 still manages to successfully fulfill one's need for great action and excitement.
Lotta great one-liners in this movie, and plenty of fun scenes. Despite the dark subject matter, with lots of killing on screen...THE EXPENDABLES 2 never takes itself too seriously. No, it's by no means a comedy...yet it's strength lies in its playfulness, and the over-the-top approach to the story elements. Any way you look at it, THE EXPENDABLES 2 is just pure, dirty fun...
