The Expendables 2

Critics Consensus

Taut, violent, and suitably self-deprecating, The Expendables 2 gives classic action fans everything they can reasonably expect from a star-studded shoot-'em-up -- for better and for worse.

Movie Info

Mercenary leader Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham) and the rest of the Expendables team reunite when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) hires them for a seemingly easy job. But things go terribly wrong, compelling the mercenaries to seek revenge for a comrade's murder. With the odds against them, Barney and his team are hell-bent on payback and cut a path of destruction through opposing forces, only to encounter an unexpected threat: six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium.

    So bad it's bad, and forgettable

    More of the same over the top action, with even more cameos this time. Including Chuck Norris, More Willis and Schwarzenegger time on screen and even more cheesy lines. If they do any more they will start to be listed under comedies not action films.

    Where "The Expendables" failed to take itself seriously and benefitted from doing so, "The Expendables 2" does the complete opposite and soars above modern action films from doing so. Not devoid of jokes, just like "Live Free or Die Hard," the film is self-aware, but develops the plot and the characters just enough to where we actually feel bad when one of them dies. We're rooting for their characters this time around, whereas with the original, we were rooting for them because they're action heroes. Bloody, violent, dark, grisly, everything you want from an action film with Stallone, and we even get a few Chuck Norris jokes in the meantime. Very well done and diametrically opposite from so many modern action films. - "Crank," "The Bourne Supremacy," "Skyline," etc.
