Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Time for Round 2. Back for War. Sly has done it again - rounded up one of the most badass groups of action superstars around for another action explosion romp. Simon West of Con Air takes on The Expendables 2, and in addition to Stallone, it stars: Jet Li, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, JCVD, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Scott Adkins, Nan Yu and Liam Hemsworth. Need I say more? How is this one? Better than the first movie? Once you've seen it, post a comment with your thoughts on Expendables 2.
Editor's Note: I haven't had the chance to see it myself yet, but here's an excerpt from Jeremy's review of The Expendables 2: "As long as the fireballs and explosions are big and the wanton carnage brought on by half a dozen men carrying machine guns is adequate, mission accomplished, everybody. There's more that could be getting done with this series, much more character that could be put into the people all these actors play. Character names would help here, but this is just Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Bruce Willis playing in a multi-million dollar sandbox. Somewhere, buried way down there, there might be an Expendables movie that is both fun and good. With The Expendables 2, fun will just have to suffice."
