Earlier this afternoon I went and saw The Expendables 2 with my brother and honestly, it was fucking awesome. I very much enjoyed it and I did definitely got my monies worth from it. I even enjoyed it more than the first one, which I still love.
I have read some reviews, from all over the place, and while I understand people have their own opinions, this movie was just not as terrible as these reviewers are describing it as. If you do not think you are going to like the movie going into it, then why see it? If it is purely because you have to review it, then for fuck sakes at least take the movie for what it is and think it is the worst movie out there, because I can definitely name movies that are far much worse that have been made. There are so many out there yet alone with endings that just do not make sense or have one at all.
The reason why I enjoyed this movie so much is because I grew up watching with each one of these actors in the movie, I have watched each and every movie of theirs more than I will ever be able to count for per each movie. You can simply just ignore the fact that it is a hollywood movie; that you may think just wants money as we all do, and enjoy that either all, most of your favorite stars or that they are all on-screen together which does not happen very often at all, yet alone twice or possibly now three times.
The movie has nearly all the classic quotes/lines you heard growing up, just like the first movie and making jokes at them too. This I love the most and how can you not? Each of these actors are getting old, which saddens me a lot because there will come a day that each one of these actors will stop making films. Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger are the main three, while you already very seldom see Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris and Dolph Lundgren as it is.
Getting back to the movie action, as far as the action and writing in the movie goes, I thought it was great. I personally think there was even more action than the first one because each time I watch it, I am always left wishing there had been more action. I loved that there was more scenes with Terry Crews and his semi-automatic shotgun as well as all the other actors especially at the end of the movie.
Overall, you can tell I loved The Expendables 2 and it was a pure bad-ass movie. I highly recommend seeing it if you would love this movie, loved the first or you love all or some of the actors in it.
