Is it a masterpiece of cinema or anything close to that? Hell no. Is it at least an extremely fun summer action flick that far supersedes the original? Well you bet your ass it is! The Expendables 2 is everything that the first film should’ve been, and that’s thanks to great direction by Simon West, action scenes that are actually comprehensible, witty one-liners, a great cast, and a very high fun factor. If you’re an action movie fan, then please don’t miss out on The Expendables 2! It is FAR better than its predecessor, and you won’t regret seeing it! You think am done ? hell no.now lets roll to the review..
The pro for this movie is that it is exactly what it sets out to be. It is an action movie for those who remember why the cast were a big deal prior to the release of The Matrix. There are plenty of punches, gunshots and explosions solidifying the movie as the ultimate GUY’S MOVIE! In addition, the wittiness and clever use of Rambo, Chuck Norris and The Terminator puns were an excellent addition. The con of the movie lies in its cast. Seriously!? I don’t care how well trained they are, these men are geriatrics! There is NO way any of them are capable of some of the things we see in this movie. But without a doubt, I declare that the fist fights in this movie are what I expected from Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. Without a doubt, Expendables 2 is a movie recommendation for guys on a Boy’s Night Out. But for the ladies, maybe staring into Liam Hemsworth’s big blues will suffice. He REALLY IS like a puppy in this movie.
