The Expendables 2 - Film Review

Published September 9th 2012
The first thing I need to point out is that I have NOT seen The Expendables 2. What you're about to read is in fact an interview I did with my husband who saw the movie starring a whole bunch of action heroes that I personally can't believe are still kicking (Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwazenegger, Chuck Norris and John Claude Van Damme - 'damn he's still around' is right!).

I still might not be able to understand him, but Sylvester Stallone is still kicking and he's one of the stars of The Expendables 2

Did you like The Expendables 2?
It's the greatest movie ever made.

What is it about?
Let's be honest, the plot's very strong. There's a group of mercenaries who are on a job and need to find a map. Someone gets killed and then they're out for revenge.

So if there's no plot, what's so good about the movie?
The one liners, the action, the guns, the explosions, and the actors.

Who was the best actor?
Chuck Norris is the standout.

It's Chuck. He takes on a whole army by himself.

Any other standout performances?
Arnie and Bruce were really good. Their dialogue is hilarious. They take the mickey out of their roles from Terminator and Die Hard.

Who will like this film?
Men between the ages of 30 and 50. That's the only demographic.

Who'll hate the film?
Women between the ages of 0 and 100.

Do you think it will win any awards?
Probably a couple of Razzies, but it was so bad it was GOOD.

How many stars do you give it?
I'd give it FIVE out of five.

So there you have it. If you fall into the target demographic and you see it and don't like it, let me know and I'll make hubby sleep on the couch!

The Expendables 2 is rated MA and also stars Aussie Liam Hemsworth (the one who's marrying Miley Cyrus).

Here's the trailer:
