Couture, Liam Hemsworth, Jet Li, Scott Adkins, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis, Yu Nan, Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger

Capping something explosive for this year’s Action category is none other than The Expendables: 2.

As expected for actors of this aging caliber this highly popular comedic action film was generously entertaining – My opinion. As per number 1, Sylvester Stallone manages to again provide viewers with Action-orientated bad-ass merchandise that absolutely leaves many an action freak twitching in their seats.

The plot: Church reunites the team – The Expendables – for another job which promises to be an easy pay check. Their quest leads them into uncharted territory causing one of their colleagues murder. His death motivates the team towards a realigned mission which as always is powered on by revenge.

With such an extensive cast one is always worried that the performances might be diluted but as before Richard Wenk and Sylvester Stallone manage to spread quite humorous characteristic traits and well thought-out dialogue throughout.

Bottom line: Very much the entertaining action movie we all grew fond of over time. If you like old action with lots of blood and guts intertwined with fast paced humor it’s simply marvelous. You will definitely experience loads of ouch and uhmms and ahhss from fellow viewers as they are exposed to bone breaking, fast paced fighting mixed with some riveting action.
