Movie Review – Expendables 2

I was a fan of the first ‘Expendables’, but though it took itself a little too serious and could have done with more clever tongue in cheek jokes. So with the sequel I was looking for a step up on all levels, and hoped it would build on what the first did well, and fix what it didn’t do well.

“Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy pay check, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.”

Well, I gotta say, 'Expendables 2' was pretty damn average. Sure I loved seeing all my old school action heroes in one film, but it was so awkwardly put together that I found myself laughing at the film rather than along with it during its over the top self referential moments. The action was also pretty average, and so all up it's just a run of the mill action movie with an action movie fan nerdtastic cast.
