Movie Review: The Expendables 2

Putting Rambo, Diehard and Terminator together, gives you Expendable 2. Yeah, the The Expendables are back for a sequel and this time round, Jean Cloude Van Damme and Chuck Norris, also tag for the hot ride.
The film begins with Chuck Norris (Bruce Willis) hiring the Expendables for a job. The team includes Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Toll Road (Randy Couture), Gunnar Jansen (Dolph Lunddgren), Hale Caesar (Terry Crews), Maggie (Yu Nana) and Billy the Kid (Liam Hensworth).
Things go dreadfully wrong when the Expendable team is ambushed Vilainous Vilain (Van Damme) who murders one of the members in cold blood. Devastated, gang sets out on a revenge mission. This tough mission will eventually receive valuable help from the Church, thanks to Trench (Schwarzenegger) and Booker (Chuck Norris).
These veteran stars prove that they still have some juice left in them, despite their ages. The film may be criticized for its thin storyline but …. Who would be concerned with? The prospect watching Sylvester Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis and Chuck Norris together in one film is enough reason to buy a movie ticket or the DVD.
