My Thoughts on: The Expendables 2 (2012)

As crazy as the first Expendables film was, The Expendables 2 manages to take it to the next level and still be just as enjoyable. In fact, the second film manages to improve in several points, most notably by including Chuck Norris in a hilarious cameo that pays homage to the “Chuck Norris facts” memes popular at the time.

Like the first film, The Expendables 2 centers around a mission that goes sideways for Barney and his crew, only this time it gets a member of the group (Liam Hemsworth) killed. The bulk of the film follows the group as they hunt down the people responsible to wreak bloody vengeance on them. The film also features a great villain played by Jean-Claude Van Damme, who does a great job making you hate his guts.

There isn’t too much more to say about this film, since for the most part it’s full of what you see in the first Expendables film: gunfights, explosions, crazy stunts, etc. It’s an enjoyable ride regardless and it only served to whet my appetite for further adventures featuring the Expendables.
