The Expendables 2


Finally watched it and no doubt the team acts impressively :)
I feel satisfied for this qualified all-star action movie with class,yes class.
Number one action casts -- add them up and they make a dream team.
Both The Expendables and The Expendables 2 are amazing!

Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone),Lee Christmas (Jason Statham),Yin Yang (Jet Li),Gunner Jensen (Dolph Lundgren),Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews)--with the newest members,Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard--are reunited when Mr. Church enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his old mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed,the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces,wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in a nick of time--five tons of weapons- grade plutonium,far more than enough to change the balance of the power in the world. But that's nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother. (picture and review source: theexpendables2film.com)

The entire heroes team up with Booker (Chuck Norris),Trench (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and Church (Bruce Willis) to fight over Vilain (Jean Claude Van Damme) who killed Billy the Kid during the mission given by Church earlier-it is to get the blueprint of a plutonium mine. It gets more intense when they knew that Vilain is after five tons of plutonium which can't be handed to wrong hands like him.
Note: Yin Yang appeared only at the first 10 minutes I think. Additional crews: Billy the Kid who was eventually killed and Maggie.

Some people said that The Expendables 2 isn't really good.. I think the main reason is that the mission is very common and the whole story runs too well especially after the death of Billy. The team has a lot of back ups who will show up like angels whenever they're in danger but yeah I still think it's normal since they have many first class crews like Norris,Schwarzenegger and Willis.
Then,with that many fighters,there is only one Vilain? I don't feel scared at all with the threatening Van Damme.
The whole action and explosion made great intense though,just no more betrayal like the first movie.
More comedy lines added,cool special/visual action effects and a flying motorcycle.
Btw, Statham is hot! (as always)
Isn't Lee Christmas the "it" guy there? A blades specialist,a fighter,naturally humorous and a romantic guy.
