Saw it with daughter and husband. We all enjoyed it. All the main actors played true to type-- poking tongue in cheek fun at the old "kick a**" movies characters they are known for. Oldies music at key points just adds to the humor. Lots of blood and violence but for some reason it wasn't offensive. van Damme as the villain (pay close attention to his name in the movie) is very good. Chuck Norris makes a great entrance. Stallone is Stallone. Statham gets to show his stuff without driving. If you like Rambo/Terminator/Transporter/Walker Texas Ranger type stuff, this movie takes a fun loving poke at them. So-o-o-o very much better than the first one!!

It was an ok action flick, the best part of the movie was seeing all the action stars in one place and hearing all the one liners. The plot and even some of the stunts were predictable but all that was worth the humor.

Expendables 2 was a true homage to the genre filled with great one-liners and references to the movies we loved. A must see ride. I would definitely take the trip again!

2012 has given me a bunch of fun movies. Expendables 2 has added to that list! I enjoyed the first Expendables and not surprised at all that I liked part 2. It was fun all around and I can't wait to add it to my dvd collection!

I liked the movie but it wasn't as exciting as the original. It has plenty of action and some funny moments. They do one thing in a hostage situation that no one in the military would ever do--very bad, but required for the rest of the movie to take place. If you had to choose one action movie this weekend I would go with Bourne, but again Exp2 is good but it's only good.
And those who don't like 80's action movies, please don't go to see this movie and then whine about how unrealistic it is, that's just stupid.
