The Expendables 2 Blu-ray Review

25 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Bad to the Groan Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) and his team of guns for hire are back for more madness and mayhem in this inevitable sequel to Sly's The Expendables . As was the case with the original, the lazily-titled Expendables 2 hangs its hat (a slightly cocked beret) on its cast, a veritable who's who of action and fighting superstars new and old.

The Expendables 2 Review

21 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Expendables 2 opens on land, the mercs for hire bursting into a camp to rescue one of their own. During the escape, they snag a speed boat, leading to a blisteringly high volume chase, only to be assisted by a grimacing Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) in the air. One action scene. Three elements. Is Expendables 2 better than the first? Probably. It’s a shame movies need those things known as “plots.

The Expendables 2

High-Def Digest
16 November 2012
  • Conclusion: The second 'Expendables' movie really lacks imagination and tries to make up for it by delivering tired, uninspired one-liners every chance it gets. Instead of turning action clichés on their collective heads, this movie seems to rely on them to get through to the end. It's too bad, since there is so much talent involved.

Expendables 2, The

Rock! Shock! Pop!
15 November 2012
  • Summary: The very definition of a big dumb action movies, The Expendables 2 doesn’t take itself too seriously and neither should you. Yes, certain cast members are underused and yes the movie deals in one cliché after another but that doesn’t really take away from the fun. Fast paced, humorous and chock full of stuff blowin’ up real good, the movie is a kick and Lionsgate’s Blu-ray looks and sounds just as awesome as you’d hope it would.

The Expendables 2 Movie Review

  • Summary: Like "The Avengers", the appeal of "The Expendables 2" is part nostalgia and part wish-fulfillment. But it is plot, character, and dialogue that are the real expendables.

The Expendables 2 movie review

GameZone
17 August 2012
  • Excerpt: When The Expendables was first released in 2010, I saw it as a double feature with Scott Pilgrim vs. The World . Imagine my surprise when Michael Cera outdid an impossible cast of action meatheads at their own genre. Scott Pilgrim felt fresh, young, and energetic. The Expendables was old, tired, and run down in comparison. The Expendables 2 is a reason to believe in second chances.

  • Excerpt: If you bought into the gory, glorious premise of The Expendables , but were disappointed by the slack plot and dull action, The Expendables 2 is here to win you back over. Boasting even more beefy action stars of various vintages and skills, plus an obscenely fun villain played by none other than Jean-Claude Van Damme, The Expendables 2 actually fulfills that original promise of an over-the-top, slightly tongue-in-cheek action movie that revives 80s macho bloodsport...

The Expendables 2

AV Club
17 August 2012
  • Excerpt: The first Expendable s movie benefitted enormously from nostalgia, not just for the cast of action icons like Sylvester Stallone, but for a time when action meant crude Golan-Globus productions with practical effects, big explosions, and ’roided-out machine-gunners getting their testicles electrocuted in the jungles of Southeast Asia.
