I liked it. It wasn't the best movie of all time, nor did I expect it to be. There was a notable lack of "f-bombs" in the entire movie thanks to Chuck Norris being Chuck Norris, but at least they played his own character up to being a legendary badass like the man himself. Jet Li didn't get much screen time, which was a fucking bummer. I loved how the bromance between his and Dolph Lundgren's character developed since the first movie (you know, considering that they nearly killed each other. Twice), and would have loved to see more of them interacting than just the opening action scene. Speaking of bromances, Stallone's and Statham's characters are still best buds and friendly rivals, and were often more funny than badass when they're together. Liam Hemsworth's new character, Billy the Kid, was definitely a welcome addition to the older veteran mercs, and probably my new favorite. Also, Bruce Willis and Arnold Swarchenegger finally get to shoot shit, as seen in the clip, and they haven't lost their touch (Arnold really liked making references to his older movies). Terry Crews is still a funny ham black guy with a loud gun, and some of his reactions to certain situations (like say, and army approaching, or a tank aiming right at him) were pure gold. I noticed Mickey Rourke was nowhere in the film, and made little-to-no mention of him. A shame, really. I liked him being a mentor figure to the other Expendables. Randy Couture's guy is still a dude with a fucked up ear that others like making fun of, but he did get to show off some of his MMA skills again, so that was cool. Jean-Claude Van Damme was an excellent bad guy and counterpart to Stallone's character, although I would have loved to see him as a part of the Expendables, rather than be the one fighting them. Oh yeah, and there's some Asian chick who I don't know much about, but she was good at kicking ass and looking kawaii.
Overall, The Expendables 2 is a fun action movie. Story is above-average at best, but I cared more about the individual characters themselves, who were all quite good. And now that a THIRD movie is already in the works, I will be looking forward to that as well. Nicolas Cage supposedly being in the third movie is a huge bonus as well. I fucking love that guy.
