I love a good action movie as much as anyone but this... This... sucked.
I can usually suspend my disbelief and just enjoy an action movie just for the sake of the action but... Expendables 2 had me looking for an exit about half way through. I stayed for the ending though I'm not sure why.
The only way they could have made it any worse would be to have made it longer. Ugh... Chuck Norris needs to stay retired. Arnold too. Their scenes were awkward and cumbersome, like afterthoughts.
If gasoline fueled explosions and bloody messes are your thing, then go for it, but if you'd like just a sliver of plot and good acting along with it then don't bother.
And for crying out loud... the bad guys in this movie were worse shots than any that ever appeared on an episode of The A-Team.

This movie had plenty of action. There was a nostalgic feel to this movie. Nice to see some of the all time great action heroes of the past. Apparently age hasn't slowed any one of them down.

They had so many knocks to Rambo, Comando, Die Hard, and even Delta Force!!! OMG! it was non-stop action and wise cracks was awesome!! It's a must see for people who love the old shoot them up movies.

For nostalgic 80's action-movie fun, this is as good as it gets. Don't expect clever dialogue or advanced plot lines -- this is all about the one-liners and explosions.
And it's better for it!

I thought overall that the movie was fun. There is a WHOLE LOT of testosterone floating about. If you can get past the cheesy rerun lines, like Arnold's "I'll Be Back", then you should really enjoy this. For a follow up, I felt like it was worth the ticket price.
