Just this movie during the weekend.

Good popcorn flick... Just for the fact that they brought the chuck norris meme to the big screen!!! And the puns!!! Oh the puns :p Corny puns!

Horrible acting, specially by JCVD.

I thought it was okay. I never did see the first one (probably won't either, given how mediocre this one was).

Completely agree, no plot, brainless shooting here and there, IMO it's just a movie to get the younger generation to watch the old rambo, predator and anything else involving the cast which in some cases, were actually good.

To be honest at the end I felt nostalgic seeing Arnie, Stallone, willis and JCVD.

There's a sequence at the end regarding a plane "that thing belongs in a museum"; Ahhnold : "We all do" :cry:


Again, it's a bad movie, but the so lame and corny parts, are so lame, that make it enjoyable :p like lone range ! :laugh:

do you guys not understand the movie was MADE that way? it was supposed to be a throwback to the corny 80s action movies - hence all the action stars.

I thought it was great for what it is. Arnold was hilarious. I'll be back....no you won't.

I loved JCVD's performance personally. He's a good bad guy. A solid action movie overall, just like the first.

Well in that sense maybe yes, but the fake foreigner trying to speak english was a bit over the top, specially when he says "don't cha-llenge me" was so over acted that meh...
Take this movie for what it is, a reminisce of the good ol' days :)

Yeah in a corny kinda way :p

Makes you wonder though, who will be the expendables when they reboot the expendables in a few years from now?

Both the best and worst film i've seen for a while. Cheesy pun-fest with lots of 'splosions. Leave your brain at home and enjoy the awesome-ness of the 80's action hero love in. :D
