The Expendables 2: Quick Movie Review

One very special reader seems to have a fun time spamming my last post. Well, not his fault, I haven't been updating AT ALL. So I thought I should give you guys something to read aside from the old s***t. hehe

Oh yeah special thanks to Nuffnang for the tickets to watch the preview to this movie.

Quick Synopsis: Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) 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.

Quick Review: It was... OK. I enjoyed the action, the easygoing humor and the faces of those who "belongs in museum". Hehe. But hey, "nothing can beat the classic" (I just love this catch phrase. Make sure to check it out in the movie! You can't miss it).

If you are looking to see some action, u got it, if you are looking to see good ol heroes from when you are younger, you got it - I mean, they actually have every other action hero I have ever known as I grew up! Heck, they even have Chuck Norris in it!! XD

But, if you are looking for satisfaction in watching a good movie with great plots and logical story line, or if you are looking for eye candy that don't die early on in the story, well.... I suggest you try somewhere else. This movie will be an "empty" one for you.

Huge Flaw (Mild Spoiler Alert)For me, the problem lies in how terrible their actual mission - the whole point of the story - is executed, which is much more lacking than their first featured mission.

The only eye candy in the whole show~
The movie started off with a great mission executed almost perfectly with somewhat systematic planning. But the actual core mission in the movie is a bit too messy and left to chances without any planning. Well, there is, but it doesn't really scream GREAT mission like the first one.

But I guess it could be attributed by their state of mental which is grieving the lost of a promising young member (Whyyyyy did they kill off the ONLY eye candy in the show?).And probably because they are missing another kick-ass awesome member, namely Jet Li in the second mission (I soooo miss his butt-kicking-villain-slaying action).
Can someone explain why?

Also, I haven't the faintest idea why they chose Yu Nan to play Maggie. She's not especially hot, her moves are just OK. And her acting is stiffer than a stick. The only point about her that mashes well with the group is her inability to really speak in understandable-non-mumbling-non-stiff English. But the rest of the cast (despite lacking in the speaking department) have their own track record of awesomeness to look at, but her? No Idea.
The bad ass villain

The Climax, the face-off between bad-ass villain and the leader of the group, was a bit too rushed and lacked the awesomeness that I usually feel during climax. I would say the scene was a bit anti-climax if anything. It's just too easy, to convenient, too well... empty. It is just too convenient, easy and for a story with no logic whatsoever, the face off is a bit too logical. lol

(End of spoiler.. I think)

But all in all, it was still very enjoyable. Whatever is lacking wherever, it definitely helps with the humor lines they throw in. It would probably help if you have actually watched some of these great action hero's past movies. The humor lines will definitely give you a kick.

Aite that's it. Quick review for the movie the Expendables 2. Rating? lol I wouldn't be able to rate it even if my life depends on it. But have fun watching it! XD

Sincerely still bratty,
