In the real sense this movie is not worth the time spent making it, but just to hear Chuck Norris reply to

“I heard a rumor that you were bitten by king cobra”
Chuck: After 5 days of agonizing pain, the cobra died.

Made watching the movie blissful experience as Stallone really raked in Norris fans

This movie is a nostalgia put together of all our favorite (OLD) heroes, even Bruce Willis took up the gun in this one, and Arnold had more screen time and used the phrase “I’ll be back” a little too much, that it became annoying.

As usual Chuck Norris was the ultimate bad ass, although he had just a little screen time.

Stallone went all the way to add more characters to the ensemble cast; Stallone had already made plans for the sequel before the release of the first Expendables and opting out of writing or directing it. Unlike the first the movie was tuned down to a PG-13 rating, so as to get younger views to be able to come onboard and see how it was done in the Old-School days.

The movie plot is similar to the first a simple job gone bad as Barney and his old-school mercenaries go on a seemly straight forward mission, then things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed. Barney and his crew are now compelled to seek revenge in a hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them.

As they carry out their revenge tactics, things went sour and when it looks like lights out for the whole crew, as they were out of bullets and faced with a whole army (armed to the teeth) and an armored tank, out of nowhere Chuck Norris shows up and evens the odds.

He didn’t really even the odds, it wasn’t fair to the army and the armored tank they were outnumbered. As we all know it takes more than one armor tank and an army to take on Chuck Norris.

Now as per acting goes, these guys are all professionals and so they did well, but the script is a little out of it, the directing and the wise cracks were a little off.

The thing is the movie is just for the old boys to enjoy the nostalgic experience of seeing their heroes again, it may not appeal to many young ones but it is a fun movie.

There is news that there will be a Third installment and i look forward to seeing it as majority of the people we see here (notably and hopefully Chuck Norris) will be back.
