"The Expendables 2" Movie Review

"The Expendables 2" Movie Review


The Expendables are back! This time, they are being enlisted by Mr.Church and are assigned to take on a seemingly simple task. However, things go wrong, and now the Expendables are going to seek for revenge in a hostile territory.

What is the danger that they are going to encounter?

Check it out at your nearest cinema this week!


“The Expendables 2” is the second instalment to the franchise. This time, Con Air's Simon West has taken over the job as the director.

Many people surely have a high expectation towards this movie since the actors featured in this film are the best of the best action movie Superstars. Even Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris and Van Damme have joined the party in this star-studded film. Well, trust me, these big guys do not fail to live up to their reputation!

The plot for this story is actually quite simple and direct, even kids can understand the plot without any confusion at all. It is not a bad thing anyway since the main focus of this film is the amount of action that it can provide.

I can’t say that it is a non-stop action movie. Because in between the action sequence , there are a plenty of scenes showing the interaction between each character. Do not worry. You will not get boring at all during their chit-chat because funny dialogues and jokes are scripted in during these scenes. These scenes will convince you that these characters are really like true buddies. It feels a bit similar to how the superheroes interacted with each other in “The Avengers”.

Now, let’s talk about the action. The action is truly solid with cool moves and amazing stunts. Shooting scenes were also great in it. The amount of explosions and fights are impressive. And the appearance of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Chuck Norris are EPIC! The addition of these two film legends brings back some nostalgic moments from their classics.

Apart from that, every action scene is never lacking of blood. Yeah, blood can be seen everywhere during their action scenes. But the bloodshed is not too gory or fake. In fact, the presence of it makes the fights in this movie seem to be more realistic!

The movie also has some surprising events. Thus, making the audience curious to know whether anyone of the Expendables will die?

Overall, this movie is SIMPLY FANTASTIC!

What I like about the movie:
  1. Massive, explosive and solid action
  2. An Unbelievable Cast of Great Actors
  3. Nice Interactions between each character
  4. Simple and direct storyline
  5. Pleasant Nostalgic moments
What I dislike about the movie:
  1. Nothing too unique about the plot
  2. Jet Li’s appearance is too little

This movie deserves an 8.5/10.0!

Overall, this movie has the top-notch action scenes and is a MASTERPIECE in this Genre!

However, people who like fresh storyline will dislike the plot as it is too superficial and common! And people who do not know the actors, will find it hard to grasp some of the jokes in it!
