Product Description

The Expendables are back and this time it's personal...

Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren),Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) -- with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Nan Yu) aboard -- are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job.

The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them.

Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time -- six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that's nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother. That is done the Expendables way....

5.0 out of 5 stars SO WHAT DID THE CRITICS EXPECT, SHAKESPEARE? 22 Oct 2012
Format:Blu-ray
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!

Is this film clichéd? YES. Is action packed with fights ever couple of minates? YES. Is it going to win awards for individual acting performances? NO. Will you be entertained? HELL YEAH!!!!

Right you put all the top actions stars from the 80 & 90 in the same movie. You get a hell of a lot of action. The way this one differs from the first film, is they tried to put a more credible revenge plot (tiny micro plot, but a plot) into it, and Van Damn is a very credible villain. I don't think there is a 80s kid out there who did not ask the question how would win in a fight between JCVD and Stallone. Also I think the first film was more of Stallone passing the torch to Jason Stratham, but as much as I like Stratham I still do not think he is on the level of Stallone or any of the other people in the movie. This film Stallone takes centre stage as the leader as it should be, and the movie is just simply fun.

Jet Li is only in the first 20 mins of the movie he is given a five minute fight scene on his own to redeem him from the first film, which I think he does. Dolph look haggard in this film and is mostly there to be the butt of the group jokes. Having said that none of the actors are shy about laughing at each other, using each other's catchphrases. A couple of Chuck Norris jokes here and there. Bruce Willis sums up the movie in one line "Shoot something".

This movie is not to be taken seriously, it is simply the sum of its part, a bunch of 80s action stars, making an action movie, with a thin (but visible) plot, with in jokes that will not be lost on any of their fans. If you were or are a fan of old action movies watch this and enjoy. If you are looking for something though provoking watch something else.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent But Silly Humoured Sequel 15 Nov 2013
By Timelord007 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The Expendables 2 (DVD).

DVD Info.
Region 2
Ratio 16:9/2:35.1
Running time 99 minutes
Classification: 15

Positives.
Sylvester Stallone as Barney Ross & Jason Statham as Lee Christmas deliver the goods in the action department.
Some really cool action sequences directed by Con Airs Simon West.

Negative.
Jean Claude Van Damme as Jean Vilain cant act is his life depended on it.
Chuck Norris sending himself up rotten to the theme music of The Good,The bad & The Ugly,It's Clint Eastwoods Spaghetti Western theme not Walker Texas Rangers!

Trivia.
Taylor Lautner was considered for the role of Billy The Kid.
Tennis player Novak Djokovic had a cameo in the scenes at the airport hitting terrorists with his tennis racquet but it was cut a seen as going to far with the humour.

Review.
This had the potential to be on par with the previous Expendables movie yet doesn't quite match up the originals premise.

Stallone as Barney Ross is fine as he doesn't skimp on the action scenes as is Statham as Christmas.

What let's the movie down somewhat is the overuse of humour that runs through the movie.

Chuck Norris walking to Clints The Good The Bad & The Ugly theme makes the movie seem farcical.

And as for Jean Claude Van Dammes Jean Vilain well he's awful quoting "I like symbols" & "Dying like a man or a goat" is such naff dialogue in the film results in it's so bad it's good.

This geriatric genocidal shootout amongst old pals, propelled by a mixture of testosterone, big guns, insider jokes, even bigger guns, martial arts and deliberately silly one-liners, is even better than the first instalment. It was clearly conceived as a pure comedy and no matter how hard you try you will not find even one serious moment in it - and I simply loved every second of this tasty treat! Below, more of my impressions, with some LIMITED SPOILERS and also, quite appropriately, some passably lame jokes.

1. Characters and actors

Almost all of the old cast is present also in this film and it is a mighty good thing, but two of the Expendables are nevertheless absent or almost absent. To my considerable regret Mickey Rourke dropped off and it is a pity but I can easily imagine his character from the first part, Tool, being deceased and currently residing in Valhalla, where he enjoys the company of stripper Valkyries, an unlimited supply of mead and ale and especially an equally unlimited supply of sparring partners he can repeatedly punch in the face, without gloves - and they are all plastic surgeons, something that real Mickey Rourke would probably appreciate... Yin Yang, played by Jet Li, appears only briefly and vanishes after first 10 minutes, but - SPOILER here - no, he doesn't die and therefore maybe he will be back for a longer appearance in the third part...

The rest of the gang is all here: Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Hale Ceasar (Terry Crews), Toll Road (Randy Couture) and my absolute favourite Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), still as insane as he is gigantic.
