This movie has Zero story, not a shred of acting skill, no structure and no sign of screen writing genius. However, it is Mind Blowingly AWESOME!! There's action from the opening minute, the movie kicks off with fast paced action, guns-a-blazing and all kinds of explosions. The movie continues, it takes a break from the action but before you know it you're back in the thick of it! There's explosions galore, chases, guns, knives and fists! This movie has everything for the adrenaline junkies, it's a blood rushing action packed 90minutes.

Awesome movie. Just good old fun for us who really like the old action movies. Not really worth watching if you have no love for 80's/early 90's action.

But the biggest bummer is that we get no special feautures?? The US version contains:
Audio commentary with director Simon West
"Gods of War: Assembling Earth's Mightiest Anti-Heroes" featurette
"Big Guns, Bigger Heroes: The 1980's and the Rise of the Action Film" featurette
"On the Assault: The Real-Life Weaponry of The Expendables" featurette
"Guns for Hire: The Real Expendables" featurette
Deleted Scenes
Gag Reel

WHY??

  Great sequel

This is wall to wall action, with a superb cast, corny one liners, breakneck pace which never lets up and a real charge from seeing Arnie, Sly and Bruce kicking terrorist butt, plus Van Damme makes a great villain.
Can't wait for Expendables 3.

One of the best action films this year with plenty of violence and gore and with a bigger cast. What more could you possibly want? A must see for 80's action movie fans.

  SO WHAT DID THE CRITICS EXPECT, SHAKESPEARE?

The Expendables will always be snubbed by critics you know the ones, they'll call it shallow, dumb with thread bare characters and story and over reliant on violence. But that's totaly missing the point of what the original and this sequel is all about. It's there just to have a good time with and see all the old action hero's that we grew up with on the screen at the same time.
The Expendables 2 mostly puts right the niggles that most fans had with the original. This sequel is better paced there's more insane action, bigger battles more corney one liners and most of all more Arnie and Willis. The plot is there just to link the action and for what it's worth is nasty Van Damme wants to mine 5 tone of weapons grad plutonium and the Expendables are called in to stop him and his private army. This includes them destroying most of Eastern Europe.
From the masive opening sequence you know this film is on a bigger scale from the first. Van Damme is having a blast, Chuck Norris shoots and kills loads of bad guys and the rest of the team take on the rest. Bullets fly, heads explode, blades slice all leading up to the showdown with Stallone and Van Damme. By the end of the film your ear drums will have taken a pounding but you'll leave the cinema with a big grin on your face. The Expendables set's it's stall out to entertain without bothering the grey matter and it succeeds. Job Done!

  "..BADASS ACTION MOVIE.."

| | See all sdx800's reviews (1814)

Action does NOT come more badass than this, the expendables is a proper old school movie for fan boys who grew up with these classic movie icons of the 70s 80s and 90s, this movie is packed with all the regulars from the original plus a handful of new comers all doing what they do best looking macho and kicking butt, the addition of a bigger role for Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger only makes it more fun and they must have used every classic cheesy one liner ever from their popular movies of the past. Jean-Claude Van Damme was an awesome villain and its good to see him on the big screen again, the action was bigger and better than before with plenty of bloody carnage to sink your teeth into, if you loved the original this wont let you down its a chunky, bloody macho fan boy wet dream of an action movie, this series is a one of a kind guilty pleasure, check it out!
