The Expendables 2 (2012)

"I'M BACK!!!"




The Expendables were back in action and they had a new member to the team - Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth)... Their luck ran out when a mission that was supposed to be just like a walk in the park for them went bad when Vilain (Jean-Claude Van Damme) came and spilled blood... Revenge was inevitable...


Those who look for deep or smartly elaborated action movie would definitely want to skip this movie because the plot is bad, the acting is bad, and there are so many 80's and 90's action movie clichés... 

However, I'm not indicating that this movie is totally bad... Hey, instead of bad, this movie is BAD ASS... What I'm trying to say is that it's strictly for classic action movie fans... Well, what else do you expect from Stallone, Statham, Li, Lundgren, Norris, Van Damme, WillisSchwarzenegger, Crews and Couture??  

Honestly, this movie is like a parody of old school action movies... It's essential for you to be familiar with those old movies in order to get most of the jokes being thrown around through out the movie...

Norris celebrated his online meme fame by reciting one of his meme jokes... It was really memorable for me as I laughed my ass out at it...

As expected, the action scenes were plenty and superb... Every character was given almost equal chance to show their badassery... The most enjoyable to watch for me was the combo of Schwarzenegger and Willis at the airport shoot out... They were hilarious!! in a bad ass manner of course... 


I would to summarize but again stressing that this movie is not for those who are looking for well elaborated movies... The Expendables franchise was created by Stallone especially for old school action movie fans and it will definitely stay that way... The amount of action and jokes were satisfying and exceeded the first instalment... Definitely an enjoyable movie for me...

3 out of 5 stars
