This isn’t a throw-away sequel. I’ll admit, I didn’t really love the last Expendables movie, except for Chuck Norris being completely awesome. This film didn’t have Chuck, but it did bring in a huge new cast including Terry Crews and Ronda Rousey. I was happy to see a female action star brought in. Rousey didn’t always do a great acting job but she really knows how to kick butt and have a dazzling smile at the same time. Stallone still impresses me that he does so much writing for movies and even though this script wasn’t perfect, there were some great lines poking fun of the cast members. The best was the joke for Wesley Snipes evading his taxes. For having such a giant cast, I felt like most people had equal screen time. Antonio Banderas really stole the show with his fast talking, hyper-active personality. Action movies normally aren’t up for Oscars so don’t expect anything too deep, but if you like explosions and general bad-guy beatdowns this is a good choice… although, you could say these movies are pretty expendable too.
