I was dissapointed in The Expendables, but I hoped they would make another film and try to get it right this time. I’ve just got back from The Expendables 2 and I’m glad to say they got it completely right this time!
If I’m honest, many of the elements of this film are the same as the previous one. The difference is this one is done with a lot more humor. The film and the cast don’t seem to take themselves too seriously and that pays dividends in the enjoyment factor. In the previous film there was a lot of violence, but this film has even more. What makes it better is it is taken to almost comic book proportions. Some of the grizzliest scenes had people in the audience laughing.
I’m looking forward to The Expendables 3!
