What do you get when you put together a movie full of well known action movie stars, a lot of action, and many jokes about each cast member's old movies? You get the Expendables 2.
Sylvester Stallone returns as Barney Ross in this action packed movie. From Rocky to Rambo this guy has done it all. He really brings great talent to this film. Not only does he bring great action talent to the film, he brings great acting. He can be serious and he can be funny, he is just that good. I can't wait to see where he takes the team next.
Now in this movie we are going to need some more famous action movie stars... But who? How about Chuck Norris? Yes the Texas Ranger is a good choice for this film. He plays Booker aka the Lone Wolf (Anyone know what film connects with the last part?). He is an all around great actor. Note the western music clip when they show him, I would take that to be a hint of his history as Walker.
That is only two people from major action films, who else? Wait! I know! We need someone big, maybe the TERMINATOR! Arnold Schwarzenegger joins the crew as Trench. This isn't his first time with this team. He will be back to beat up the bad guys if they get in his way. (Come on! You know I had to get in a joke about past films). Take note of a few jokes about his work while watching this film.
All around the cast was fantastic! The crew was great! Simon West did a amazing job directing the movie and I hope he returns for a 3rd. Special effects were epic! Only thing I noticed was the blood effect seemed just a little over done.
There were a lot of jokes about past movies such as Rambo and Terminator, it was a little cheesy but it was funny! I laughed many times during this movie, which to me is a good thing even in an action movie.
One thing I would have done is used the motorcyles more then they did in this movie.
Just a note: This is RATED R for a reason and you need to remember that before taking kids to see it! At least talk to them about the rating and why it is rated that! Don't just take them and blame the movie!
