Yeah, yeah, I get it: "The Expendables 2" is a fun-loving throwback to the gloriously bad action films of the 1980s. Here's what I don't get: Why couldn't it be a throwback to the good ones?
Throwback to I AM LEGEND, a terrible movie you consider one of the greatest movies of all time.

I Am Legends a great movie, it's just not one of the greatest movies of all time -_-

I am legend was terrible.
Aug 17 - 03:07 PM
I am Legend was awful, read the book way better.
Aug 17 - 04:26 PM
Totally agree, though the end kind of sucked. If MUST watch the movie, go watch Omega Man
Aug 23 - 10:26 PM
Watch 'The Last Man on Earth" with Vincent price. The closest to the book.
Aug 24 - 06:02 PM
I Am Legend was barely palatable. Still bothers me that almost all of the infected ppl were CGI.
Aug 28 - 11:26 AM
I am Legend was a great film. I don't know what you're talking about
Aug 19 - 10:01 AM
horrible movie, so is The Expendables 2. Both are pieces of junk.
Oct 3 - 01:59 PM
I enjoyed it. Every movie version of a book is always hated by the book lovers. I am sure the book is better, of course.
Aug 24 - 12:57 AM
I never read the book, but the movie sucked.

Indeed some people should be reviewing soap operas!
Aug 19 - 10:45 AM
Because it wouldn't make it awesome...
Aug 17 - 10:02 AM
Obviously because nobody cares about YOUR definition of "good."
Aug 17 - 10:33 AM
You have every possible character of the "good ones", thats all you need.
Aug 17 - 10:41 AM
Yeah, but these guys are at that age where the forgot how to act and have good dialogue. However, I don't know how emotional this film is or if it's even emotional at all. If not, then that's just weak.
Aug 17 - 11:22 AM
There is no age where people 'forget how to act.' That's just arrogant. Clint Eastwood is still a fantastic actor (director too, obviously), and he's one of the oldest still in the game.
Aug 18 - 09:05 AM
I dont think they ever knew how to act in the first place. Just know how to take a cue when something blows up
Aug 28 - 07:37 AM
Why do you want so much emotion in an action movie...?
There's different genres for a reason. Film 101. I go to an action movie expecting massive amounts of awesome action, not tears and break ups. That's exactly what I got, which is why this movie was so mind-blowingly awesome.
Some people really just don't know how to have fun at the movies anymore.

LOL oh cmon cheesey dialog is what made the action movies from the 80's awesome...I'll take a cheesey line from any and all Arnold movies or 1 from any of the Die Hard movies any day of the week
"BENNNNYYYYY SCREWWWWW YOUUUUUUU!!!!!"

Im just gonna say that this reviewer gave magic mike 3.5 / 4. That means any credibility he may have had is lost. Its an action movie,it has a different type of explosion than he is into.
Aug 17 - 11:36 AM
magic mike is better than this trash. don't be mad
Aug 17 - 11:58 AM
exactly. it wasn't good, but it was better than EX2 which was total sh!t
Aug 17 - 01:29 PM

Turn in your man card asap

This > Ted > Magic Mike
Aug 25 - 11:42 AM
He was probably hoping to see the cast strip down and dance around like in Magic Mike.
Aug 17 - 02:40 PM
Yes. Because Magic Mike has so much to do with this film. What is wrong with people on the internet? Why do you people give such a hard shit about other people's opinions? Are you not able to enjoy this film knowing that this guy didn't like it?
Aug 17 - 10:31 PM
What do you mean, YOU PEOPLE?
Aug 19 - 06:31 AM
What do YOU mean, "What do you mean you people"?
Sep 7 - 08:17 PM
Magic Mike was good. He didn't award it those stars because he liked the stripping. It has a 79 anyway. Plenty of people liked it.
Aug 18 - 07:09 AM
What is this obsession that aggrieved commenters have with Magic MIke? "This reviewer liked Magic Mike" is regarded as some sort of criticism. The film was a very well-reviewed -- and really interesting -- Steven Soderbergh picture. If you don't like it, please explain why.

It's just a card being played by homophobic pricks to protect their manhood. It only makes them come off like douches.
Aug 20 - 07:16 AM
Translation of this review:
"Whaaaa the jocks always beat me up in high school! Now I'll get revenge by hating on action movies with big muscular guys in them!"
Aug 17 - 03:23 PM
People stopped caring about dorks like this guy a long time ago. Go watch hefdfhsdahdffshhs maybe by France starring: dfhdghdhsdffhsdfhs.
Aug 18 - 02:23 AM
That is like saying somebody got you the wrong present when your present is perfectly good.
Aug 18 - 03:53 AM
No it's not. It's like saying everyone else got xbox360's and PS3's last year and he got a DS this year instead
Aug 18 - 07:11 AM
No, no, apparently you DON'T "Get it."
Aug 18 - 09:11 AM
I got a feeling if it had subtitles and all the actors did was spend two hours talking about their feelings you would have loved it.
Aug 18 - 10:07 AM
Oh, come on. One can enjoy a break a stupid buddy movie which UNDERSTANDS it's concept and does not attempt to go highbrow, no? I largely prefer upscale, highbrow movies to action flicks, but when the self-derogatory humor kicks in, the action heroes roll out and the fun gets in, you just see something which can be equated to either a frat reunion or a wrestling tournament in a retirement home. And that's WAY more enjoyable than, say, "Twilight".

Sure thing, guy who complained that The Bourne Legacy didn't have enough action.
Aug 18 - 06:38 PM
This dork is just trying to gain attention. Or he just doesn't understand. Probably thinks Queen and Audio-slave are show-tunes.
Aug 19 - 10:43 AM
Get a life please. Even for a moment, just stop watching those drab movies you like so much.
Go out, and enjoy the Sun once in a while!
Aug 20 - 05:54 AM
Drab movies are good
Sep 4 - 07:47 PM
You sir are nothing more than an action movie buzz kill.
