M.A.D. Day 64 - Expendables 2

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

Man, did I really want to like this movie.  I tried to it has all my favorite action stars Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Willis, and Statham.  I knew they would make funny in jokes and use each others line.  I knew who was going to die right off because it was so cliched, right down to letter to his girlfriend.  This was painful to watch, it felt longer to me the The Dark Knight Rises.

This is where I usually but the plot points, but there is no point.  its old action heroes trying to do a movie that would have been entertaining twenty years ago.  Action, awful plot, and an even worse script.

I like all these actors too, even now I do.  I so wanted this to work.  I thought Red was a very good movie.  I liked the very last Rocky movie.  Schwarzenegger was a great action star with T2, True Lies, hell I even liked Kindergarten Cop but this is just to little to late.  The only saving grace in this movie is Statham, he is a good actor crossed with a great action star.  If it was not for him I would have walked out.  This movie is just trying so hard to be cute and violent at the same time.  Please, I am begging no more Expendables.
