- Chuck Norris is harder than all the other Expendables AND all the baddies without even trying.
- Chuck Norris is SO hard he can steal Clint Eastwood's theme tune and nobody tells him off.
- The Governator still can't act, and is looking pretty scrawny these days.
- a film can always be improved by the addition of MOAR ACTION HEROES.
- Jet Li does a great Jackie Chan impression if you make enough saucepans available to him
- Jean Claude Van Damme's party piece flying kick would lose him both bollocks and a kidney if he tried it in an ACTUAL fight, it's so slow.
- The best expendable in terms of all round fight skill, brains, and versatility... is the girl.

I enjoyed the Expendables 2 very much. Because, lets face it, if I'm GOING to watch a film that doesn't even try to pass the Bechdel test it might as well be one with enormous explosions and so much testosterone you practically grow bollocks just being in a room where it's showing. It was silly and cheesy and over the top and utterly, utterly hilarious, and I recommend it thoroughly.

Explosions and over-the-top cheesiness? I MUST SEE THIS FILM. (Somehow we never saw the first one, tsk. I should rectify that too.)

Expendables available cheaply on DVD; I hadn't heard of it either until I heard Matthew Sweet interviewing Messrs Schwarzenegger and Stallone on the politics of the 1980s action hero on Radio 4 earlier this week.

I would say don't both with the first one and just see the second one which is better mostly because it doesn't try so hard even if it does have less jet li

While it was never going to pass the bechdel test I do like that the female fighter it in doesn't get saved and does do some saving and is just are good as the boys in a fight

Excellent, I was a bit disappointed in the first one because it was a bit lacking in the hammy cheesy kaboomness.

Heh, maybe hats comes with the actor, not sure if he had one in Skyline but that's probably because it was utter shite.

Is it better than the first one? I've got that on DVD but couldn't make it all the way through before I was bored and I'll usually watch any old shit :(
