The Expendables 2 : Hollywood Movie Review and Critics Ratings

The Expendables 2 : Hollywood Movie Review
Average Rating: 3/5
(Based on web reviews)

Sylvester Stallone’s blunt-edged billet-doux to Eighties American action cinema, is required for this second instalment to make sense. The answer is no: it makes very little sense either way.There is a lot of shooting. When the shooting stops, there is a lot of joking. Then there is a lot of roaring, particularly from Stallone, whose character smokes cigars the size of kitchen rolls and has a voice like an outboard motor churning custard.

I was thoroughly appalled, mainly at myself for enjoying it.

[A] saggy, rickety and occasionally winded geriatric action thriller ...

Stallone does seem to think that just getting all his old buddies to lumber up in the one place, as if opening some new branch of Planet Hollywood, is enough to earn our sentimental indulgence.

Has the parallel between the actor and the mercenary's trade ever been so overt?

If someone told you that the negative was found on the shelf of a studio that went bankrupt in 1991, you'd most likely believe them.

Taut, humorous and attractively packaged, the sequel is both fleet footed and engaging enough to captivate audiences with more than just nonstop action.

Stallone is once more an amiable host. He even pulls off heroics despite having an ill-advised 'stache laying over his mouth, which nowadays looks like a squished octopus.

For better and worse, this ultra-violent follow-up gives the audience what it wants in full force.

They all take turns playing the clown - and for the most part, it's fun to watch them at it, even if the body count is distressingly high.

Irresponsible as a first-person shooter video game? You bet. But it holds together, more or less, right up to the moment Chuck Norris and his dyed beard make their preposterous appearance.

The reason this movie works more deeply than just a star studded action romp is the attention to tone. Action movies are more than just a string of cool scenes. There's more that goes into creating a world where we invest in the ridiculous.

Personally, I rather enjoy an action movie that looks like everyone is still fighting World War II instead of aliens or high-tech spies.
