Customer Review

on 21 August 2012
Now it must be said that I didn't like the first Expendables film very much, I knew what I was getting myself into before I even saw it; bad acting, a silly plot, over the top villains and action. This I knew but what I was also looking forward to was it being something undeniably cool and fun. There's no question that the cast was incredibly cool; it's even better in Expendables 2 but for me the first one lacked the decent bone crunching action I was looking for and didn't feel too fun. Expendable 2, for me, is a vast improvement in some regards; the action is much better and there's more Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis this time around. However the silly plot, poor character development really take its toll here and the less said about the dialogue the better, that is if you can understand what Stallone actually says this time. But despite all this, I still found myself enjoying it and this will probably be the only time I ever say that Jean Claude Van Damme gives a great performance as a dastardly, if terribly underused, villain. If you didn't like the first one then it's likely you won't like this but as even I discovered, this is an improved sequel that delivers more of what I was looking for in the first. Go and see it for probably the worst but most fun action film of the year.
