Movie Review: The Expendables 2

Thanks to ChillaCup, le bb and I managed to catch the preview screening of the Expendables 2 last week :)


Synopsis: Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.





 Having not watched the first Expendables movie, I was actually a little apprehensive going in, not knowing what to expect. I was also pretty busy the last week, so I didn't have time to even google the story :p but I was pretty stoked when it started, and I was waiting for the moment Chuck Norris will actually appear on screen :p

Verdict: 7/10. Yup, it was good for me. I loved the humour and how they poked fun at the characters' other on screen familiarities. Personally for me, it was a good all star studded cast, but I wished the main actress would have been more attractive :/ The scenes gave me a feeling of when bb plays his RPG games, with all the blood spurting out and heads being blown off, but overall, if you want action, please be sure to catch this :)

A lot better than the first because of the loads and loads of carnage that were involved and also just how much more fun everybody seems to be having. In my opinion, fun is all that matters when you have a flick like this. Nice review.
