As promised, I watched ‘The Expendables 2’ soon after my previous post, and it is AWESOME! How couldn’t it be? It could easily have been a hit only by riding on its all-star cast. But thankfully, this isn’t the case with The Expendables 2.
A sequel to a successful movie always has high expectations and this easily surpassed them in the first ten minutes or so. The plot is strictly okay, and often used in other such movies. But the action sequences, and the bro-mance between Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham, as well as the constant back and forth between various teammates sells the movie.
A new character is introduced, a young sniper Billy ‘the Kid’ played by Liam Hemsworth. He is extremely likable and he soon became my favorite Sadly his role is quite short, if you know what I mean (Spoiler Alert!). Even so, Expendables 2 is a great movie which you can watch over and over again.
Oh, almost forgot to mention, there was a guest appearance by an actor named Chuck Norris. Sound familiar?
