The Expendables 2 - Reviewed

Overview: So...Expendables.... Not much can be said about this movie....judging by merely the star cast of this definitely knows what to expect. Add to it...that we have already seen the first installment of the Expendables. So avoiding the rather obvious criticisms....I'll just delivers what it promises to....but does not add one bit of anything extra to exceed them.

Characters: The characters play their roles effectively. expected Stallone is pretty much the man and can do anything! Stathom is the cool one...and also gets some great action sequences to his credit...the rest, including Bruce Wilis and Arnold, play their parts, say their cliched and sometimes corny dialogues and appear in and out of the film reels! The guns too play a major role in this flick except they probably must be ready to sue the production house for lack of end-credits title space! :) Everyone shoots left-right-center-up-down and in all directions and sometimes make the act of shooting look like its out of a G rated Kids' game.

Music: Loud, yet effective...for this kind of a movie.

Experience: This movie is strictly for those who are looking for guns, bullets and explosions....add to it a touch of old school fist fighting as well...if this is what you are looking for....enjoy the 1 hr 43 mins of non stop action! There are some cheesy dialogues and some well placed funny ones too (like the one where Bruce Willis snaps back at Arnold saying "You've been Back too many times"). All in all....its stress free entertainment devoid of any intelligence.

Been-O-pinion: I give it 2.5....a little more subtlety and a little less mindless action would have done well for this movie.
