Big Hollywood

This sequel knows what its audience is looking for and succeeds admirably in providing it.

"The Expendables 2″ is just entertaining enough to permit a third film. If only these steroids-packing seniors can coordinate schedules again.

Projection Booth

Enjoyable, but disappointingly tame compared to its ferocious predecessor. The Expendables 2 is disposable.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

The Expendables 2 is a shot to the arm of pure, silly action-movie fun, and it stars so many heavy hitters it might break your brain to keep up with what's happening onscreen at various points during its slim 103-minute run time.

Excessive in almost every other area possible: from outlandish explosions to over-the-top dialogue via horrendously delivered gags, it pushes the limit of what people will readily accept from an action movie that isn't directed by the Zuckers.

We Got This Covered

The Expendables 2 does for the action genre what ​"The Artist" ​did for the silent film genre: Distilled it down to its most basic parts before creating an homage that more than lives up to its past.

Those hoping for a deeper, smarter, or more polished piece of action cinema: Sorry, but this franchise has pretty much established it isn't about that.

...if seeing a man's head explode like a watermelon is your thing, book a ticket, because The Expendables 2 frequently makes fruit salad.

Montreal Film Journal

It brings back everything that was good about the first movie and makes it truly great, then adds a whole bunch of extra awesome on top of it.

It's cheesy, fun, disposable action pap on a big scale - but, boy, is it lazy.

American Profile

Despite its ridiculously high kill count, there's a vein of humor running throughout the script and almost as many quips zipping around as bullets.

Yes, it's a joke, but it's an hilariously awesome one.

The film thunders through its paces, under the energetic direction of Simon West.

FILMINK (Australia)

The plot is limp and the attempts at pathos are close to cringe-worthy, but there's no denying this sequel absolutely delivers in terms of classic testosterone-fuelled action.

The Expendables 2 may not win any awards and will probably never be used in any university movie courses, but if you are in the mood for some good old-fashioned American action - then strap yourself in.

Screen-Space

The Expendables 2 meanders through a reined-in, talky first half before giving the modern action fans (or, more likely, their fathers) the nostalgic bloodbath they have unknowingly longed for.

Any hope I had of keeping a tally of fatalities in The Expendables 2 was quickly dashed by the opening melee, which makes the last ten minutes of The Wild Bunch look like the first ten minutes of Up.

Laramie Movie Scope

If you can get past all that blood and goofy, heavy-handed humor, this reunion of action stars on the brink of retirement is entertaining.

The Expendables 2 is that 80s mothers milk, fortified (and aged) into whiskey - and it's a fun to drink in with friends.

Urban Cinefile

The pleasure of seeing Arnie back with a (large) gun in his hand, cracking the odd joke at his own and his team's expense, and all the collected weight of a thousand years of action hero experience to call on. Van Damme it, it's a blast
