The Expendables 2 Review

The Expendables 2 Poster
Stallone. Statham. Schwarzenegger. Willis. Van Damme. Norris. Lundgren. Li. Crews. Couture. Somewhere, Steven Segal is sitting looking at his phone, still waiting for it to ring.

The Expendables 2 is a deeply, deeply stupid movie in which any problem that cannot be solved with a gun can be solved by using a bigger gun. It’s also a very smart movie, that uses the fact that you already know what the movie is going to be and delivers it.

I’m going to mostly avoid spoilers, however the movie is as predictable as the McBain films from The Simpsons. The character who, twenty minutes in, you just know is going to die at some point? Yeah, of course they die. Because it’s that kind of movie. And you know it’s going to happen pretty much the first time you see them. But that’s fine, because what The Expendables 2 is selling is predictability.

If you’ve seen the first movie, you’ve more or less seen this one. Some bad guys take over a place, and Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Bruce Willis and…well, lots and lots of action stars commit unspeakable acts of violence until everything is okay again.

The main difference between this one and the last is that they’ve stopped even pretending to be taking it seriously. Any of the ‘dark’ scenes are done with tongue planted so firmly in cheek that they were getting some of the biggest laughs in the audience. It’s a film in which even the vehicles appear to have tattoos with phrases like ‘Lock and Load’ on them. It’s a film in which, as seen in the trailer, two major action stars get into a small electric car and fire machine guns out of the windows. It’s a film in which Jean Claude Van Damme kicks a knife into someone.

We also get to learn a little more about some of the characters, and the same easy charm continues from the last film. The stuff we learn doesn’t really mean anything, but that’s not important.

The biggest trick they really use is to use what we know about the actors as a short-hand for character. Stallone plays Stallone. Arnie plays Arnie. Chuck Norris plays Chuck Norris, along with jokes about Chuck Norris Facts. Dolph Lundgren plays Dolph Lundgren, even to the point of making jokes about his chemical engineering qualifications.

Is it a good movie? No, not at all. It’s stilted, it’s predictable and it’s deeply stupid and bordering on sexist. But is it fun? Yes. It’s a lot of fun, in exactly the same way as the McBain movies are. Imagine a film-length version of them, except with many more film actors other than an Arnie character. Then you’ve basically got The Expendables.

Nobody is going to see this expecting it to be anything other than what it is. And in terms of delivering what you expect, it succeeds perfectly. The opening scene is more over the top than anything from the previous movie. And there’s a lot of meta-humour going on. And the violence is dealt out in an entertaining way, and the new cast members mesh well with the returning ones.

So, if you liked the first one, this is more of the same. If you didn’t, it’s silly enough that you may prefer it, but it’s probably going to annoy you in the same way.

Comic-Con Exclusive Poster

The Expendables are back and this time it’s personal…

Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren),Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) — with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard — are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job.

The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them.

Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time — six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world.

But that’s nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother. That is done the Expendables way….

The Expendables

Loving the old action heroes showing that they have still got it in this huge action film that doesn’t take itself too seriously

Expendable: capable of being sacrificed in order to accomplish a military objective.

Living life on the fringes of the law, The Expendables are a team of hardened mercenaries, led by Ex-US Special Forces agent Barney Ross (Stallone).

Consisting of former SAS blade expert Lee Christmas (Statham), hand-to-hand combat specialist Yin Yang (Li), long barrel weapons specialist Hale Caesar (Crews), demolitions expert Toll Road (Couture), and precision sniper Gunner Jensen (Lundgren), the team take on what appears to be a routine assignment: a covert, CIA-funded operation to infiltrate the South American country of Vilena and overthrow its ruthless dictator.

But when their job is revealed to be a suicide mission, the men are faced with a deadly choice – one that might redeem their souls?or destroy their brotherhood forever.

Name’s Chelios, Chev Chelios

A 21-year-old London man has legally changed his name to that of action hero Chev Chelios following a dare on social networking site bragster.com.

Chev Chelios as played by Jason Statham reappears in Crank 2 out in the cinema soon.

Launched on March 16, a new campaign forged between social networking site bragster.com and Lionsgate UK asked the bragster community of daredevils and pranksters to take part in two specific challenges that encapsulate the spirit of CRANK 2: HIGH VOLTAGE?s hero ? Chev Chelios, played by the UKs biggest action hero, Jason Statham. Lionsgate UK and Bragster.com are on the hunt for the UK?s real life version of Chev Chelios ? the kinds of users who will do absolutely anything for glory.

Yesterday saw the completion of the first dare – giving $1000 to the first bragster user, originally one David Robert Smart, to officially change his name by deed poll to Chev Chelios.

Reacting to the acceptance of this challenge co-director Mark Neveldine said, “I am going to change my name to his original name and steal his identity”, co-director Brian Taylor added, “We shouldn’t stop at just one person. I want an army. 50,000 Chev Chelios? Star Jason Statham commented on the film: ?This film is going to be ever more ramped up, ever more offensive, with more action, more ridiculousness, more everything. I was completely excited by how ludicrous and outrageous they made part two. This one takes it to the next level.?

Statham, soon to start filming on Sylvester Stallone?s The Expendables, was thrilled to return to the physically demanding role of Chev Chelios. ?I was in right from the suggestion of doing a part two,? Statham recalls. ?It?s a complete and utter trust. I had implicit faith in these two [directors Neveldine and Taylor], knowing they?re going to do something cool with things that can be quite ridiculous?This is not a film to be analyzed and stripped apart. This is a hardcore action movie that?s made to entertain. As Americans would say, it?s a fucking kick-ass action movie that just doesn?t stop, from start to finish. It?s everything that people want to see. If you like action, comedy, snappy dialogue and interesting, fucked-up characters, then just strap yourself in and get ready for the ride.? Co-director Brian Taylor concluded, ?When you go into CRANK HIGH VOLTAGE, you can expect to be rocked hard, maybe harder than you?ve ever been rocked before. I promise it?s a movie that you?ve never seen before.?

For the second part of the challenge bragster users will now be encouraged to get charged up in public. Whether rubbing up against random passersby, or simply having a Chev style freak out in the middle of a busy street, Lionsgate UK and Bragster want to see the craziest energy packed effort ? the best entry will win a HD CAM so get your crazy on!

As part of this dare Bragster.com is pleased to announce the inclusion of one of their own heroes, aptly named Crank – the current world record holder for continuous kicks in the groin from strangers. Two years of bragster involvement has also seen him staple a deck of cards to his body, nail his hand to a dartboard and down a bowl of stinging nettle and hot sauce all in the name of bragster glory. The campaign will see Crank embark on his very own ?Hour Of Madness? – which has resulted in a hilarious short movie of him fulfilling his craziest dares yet on a tight time limit through the streets of London.

Check out the Bragster.com homepage and go to ?Crank It Up? for his very special video.
