I fucking LOVED this movie. I wasn't a massive fan of the first Expendables. In fact, I've forgotten almost everything about it. It was cool to see all those legends together but I just didn't get into it. Number 2 though? AMAZING. Why? How? Yes, the story isn't that great and the acting won't win any awards but still, it was perfect.
All the legends, back together. This time, instead of Arnold/Bruce Willis cameos they had meatier roles… and Chuck Norris, he was Chuck Norris. Seeing all these guys together on the big screen shooting up bad guys made me feel like a kid in a candy store. The acting was very average. The lines were CORNY AS FUCK, and I loved every minute of it.
I watched it in a packed out cinema and everyone felt the same way, laughing our asses off at the amount of times Arnie said a variation or I'm back or I'll be back and countless other gems by Sly and John McLaine. Oh and the gratuitous violence. Geeeze.
Watch this movie, unless you're too cool to enjoy bad acting and an average story. Can't wait to get the fuckin blu-ray. One tip though, I think you'll probably enjoy it more watching it with friends that you can share the journey with.
