Lots of gun fires and a deep desire of vengeance, yesssss that’s Expendable 2 for you !!

STALLONE ROPES IN CHUCK NORRIS

There’s a lot riding over Expendables 2, after all it is the sequel written and directed by the star himself, Sylvester Stallone, announcing a bomb-blasting return to Hollywood. Stallone has tried his every bit to create as much of an action in the movie as you could imagine, and inclusion of Rajni Kant of Hollywood, Chuck Norris, is a desperate attempt in the same direction.

Stallone and Norris obviously tried to utilize Norris’s real world popularity and awesomeness when in one of the scenes in the movie Stallone asks Norris to affirm a rumor about him being bitten by a deadly King Cobra. “Yeah, I was” Norris replies, “but after 5 days of agonizing pain … the cobra died”….Now that’s why Chuck Norris is called the Rajni Kant of Hollywood, isn’t?

BRUCE WILLIS & ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER

Of course among others, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger were the lucky ones to share the onscreen space with the great Chuck Norris. No money for guessing Expendables 2 is all about massive chaos, bullets all across, and our super heroes killing each and every terrorist till death with slight nose-bleeds to themselves.

EXPENDABLES 1 VS EXPENDABLES 2

The audiences obviously enjoyed the Expendables the first time around. Expendables 1 got good review, people thought it was efficient, self-aware, and a decent movie, but Expendables 2 is certainly over-hyped. It’s the same old wine sold in the newly designed bottle with an attractive label on it.

EXPENDABLES 2 THE VERDICT

Of course, the plot has gone stale and the story in its second telling is simply very predictable. Other than the superb fantastical extraordinary league of action heroes from the 80s and the 90s there isn’t much in the film. Yes, it does seem to be an optimistic attempt to cash-in on its ensemble-star cast.

Obviously, not many people would like to spend their hard earned money on Expendable 2 by watching it in theaters but wait to download from the internet or loan a DVD from a pal.

CITYHYD Recommendation: Watch at your own risk, 1.5 Star !
