   When I first saw the trailer for the first Expendables movie; I thought I had died and gone to action movie heaven. The Expendables featured an ensemble cast made up of the most well known past and present action movie stars. For me it was the coolest thing ever.       When I eventually saw the movie (I bought the DVD with birthday money) I was alittle disappointed. The movie wasn’t very actiony and overall didn’t feel as great as the trailers made …

You Can Never Beat A
2010’s ensemble action film ‘The Expendables” was an ode to the time when action movies ruled the multiplexes and when adrenaline-pumping stunts and explosions took precedence over plot and substance. Directed by Sylvester Stallone, the film did have some rough spots but proved to be a escapist fun. It also brought together the past and present array of action stars that satisfied action junkies. Well, this time, with Simon West at the helm as director and script written by Stallone …

      The action film has a curious history.      Granted, studios didn’t begin pumping them out in the ‘80’s, but, to a large part, they experienced a significant retooling in that bygone era.  Mostly, this renaissance was fueled by the big budget star – think Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude Van Damme, and Arnold Schwarzenegger – coming aboard a particular action vehicle and asking for the part to be customized to what his …

Star Rating:         Watching The Expendables 2, I was repeatedly reminded of the Julie Brown single “I Like ‘em Big and Stupid,” a 1980s synthpop novelty song about the inexplicable attraction to muscle-bound men with low IQs. A sample of the opening verse: “When I need something to help me unwind / I find a six-foot baby with a one-track mind. / Smart guys are nowhere, they make demands / Give me a moron with talented hands.” Rare for …

It's a good thing nobody threw them away.
2010's The Expendables was a grand celebration of corny action movies with plenty of big names and big action.  Upon watching it more I saw it did have flaws such as quick cuts of shaky cam and being filmed a little too close among some other issues.  The Expendables 2 clears out most of those issues but brings a few more with it.      In the original, we got the basics and thats been built upon here too.  Stallone's Barney Ross runs a team of super duper …
Quick Tip by . 八月 18, 2012
Sylvester Stallone and the rest of his badass squad from the first Expendables movie return to track a arms dealer across Europe and stop him from selling plutonium to terrorists, and in the process get payback for the death of a fallen ally. Less shaky cam and an upped body count make for another action blast.

Of the 6 movies on my list The Expendables 2 is one of the ones I'm Most excited for. When I watched the first trailer, although it was only about 50 seconds long; it was enough to get me screaming like a Little girl at a Justin Beiber Concert. From that first trailer it looked like the movie was going to be on a more serious tone than it predecessor. I guess you could say the lighting and the low toned music gave me that impression. I was hoping the story would open up a …
