If there’s one word I’d use to describe the latest trailer for Simon West‘s Expendables 2, it would be overkill. The first film hyped itself up to be the biggest action film in history, with a colossus of stars, bullets and action, yet it was one of the dullest films of that year. I know that a story isn’t important to Sylvester Stallone, but c’mon, at least try!
The Expendables 2 looks like overkill at this point. I’m done wishing and hoping for an ass-kicking action film with all of my favorite stars of the 80’s and 90’s, because at this point I just don’t care. I’m hoping that my negative approach to the second entry will only be rewarded with a surprise of a popcorn flick that manages to inject a story and purpose into such a ridiculous and overplayed idea.
The jokes aren’t funny, the action isn’t anything new and everything else is recycled from something else.
