TDK Talks about The Expendables 2

The Expendables 2 was a movie that me and my friends were waiting for a long time.I wasn't that excited as one of my friends because the first movie wasn't anything special and I actually didn't like it.But this time it had more action actors than the last time and that was the only reason I went to watch the movie.

The movie wasn't long as expected and that was a good thing because this kind of a movie can't be really long.The whole movie was more comedy than action but when there were fighting scenes everything was okey and looked really awesome.The acting cast was awesome and each actor we all knew.I was just surprised and I wasn't sure who was the sniper 'Billy the Kid' but then my friend told me that it was Liam Hemsworth which was a really good pick.One of the writers of the movie was Sylvester Stallone which was good.The movie had a lot of comedy and basically the jokes were on the cliche phrases of the old movies of actors like Chuck Norris,Arnold Schwarzeneger and others.They were practically done well and you could see the actors actually having fun while in the movie.The effects were good and there were a lot of dead people in this movie and everything was done in an almost perfect way.

Chuck Norris appeared in this movie,I thought he would be for more time than just a few minutes in two scenes but when he appeared it was like all of the jokes in the Internet about him coming true.There wasn't only one joke about him but nearly 2 or 3 which were big ones.That was one of the things that I didn't like about the movie.As much as the first movie sucked for me it was serious and wasn't so funny and it didn't contain jokes on every 5 minutes.This one was like a comedy for me.Chuck Norris was the main guy that had jokes for him and they were funny but they weren't at the right place.

Other thing that made me a bad imression was the location,the main one.It was said that it was in the mountains in Albania but if you listened well to the guys that were supposed to be albanian,they were talking in bulgarian and the whole location was actually the mountains that are near my town(I'm from Bulgaria) and Sofia(our capital).That was like a offense to out country and citizens for me even if they didn't mean it.

THe main actors as in the last movie were Sylvester Stallone,Jason Statham,Arnold Scharzeneger,Bruce Willis and this time Jean-Claude Van Damme.All which are really well known to me and all action fans.They did a good job even though sometimes their lines sucked and sound cliche and Van Damme's accent was really bad.

All though the movie was funny,thrilling and was catching the eye of me and my friends.It was sometimes palin stupide but al though it had interesting moments and made the people laugh.I liked it more than the first one and was happy that I heard bulgarian language in the movie.

I didn't like first Expendables very much because most of stars were underused until the very end of the movie, the fight scenes were really hard to follow filmed in such close-up and shaky cam and I didn't see the people I wanted to see fight in the movie (Arnold, Bruce Willis or Mickey Rourke).

I am so looking forward to see this movie...

I preferred the origin to the sequel myself. 1 was good but not to cheesy. The sequel had better set pieces in places but it has super cheesier than cheesiest cheese ever lines.

Well basically it is the same but this time you see in the end Arnold and Willis in a fighting scene for like 10 minutes.And you see them more than in the first part.Mickey Rourke doesn't appear here.

Well at least everyone else has a equal time? Because in the first movie, they focused on Stallone and Staham most of the time, while Lee got his ass kicked through the entire movie and everyone else only got to shine in the first and final scene.
