The Expendables 2

JOY REVIEW

Expendables Two: Back for War: should have stopped at One. At the time, it was kind of fun seeing Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis wandering around as over the hill warriors. This one has got every super hero ever invented and some less than super heroes. It’s violent, it’s stupid, and the formula is clearly: make some silly James Bond-esque joke like ‘rest in pieces,’ hee hee, then have people shooting up everybody. Then do another bunch of lead ups to one silly liner and then people shooting for 103 minutes. Sylvester Stallone wears a handlebar mustache – oh, it doesn’t work. Jason Statham certainly looks the best of the group. Jet Li makes a cameo. Dolph Lundgren looks as big and nasty as ever. Chuck Norris makes a cameo, as does Jean-Claude Van Damme, and Liam Hemsworth plays somebody who is awfully young and awfully good looking and makes everybody else look just older and more tired. Two stars.
