The Expendables 2 debuted this weekend, and like like most sequels, it delivered a lot more. The all star cast threw in more Hollywood action heroes, gun battles, and pumped up the parts for returning stars like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis.

If you’ve seen the first film, then you know what to expect from the star studded line-up. As for the new additions, Jean-Claude Van Damme did an excellent job as the badguy and certainly pulled off the person-you-love-to-hate role. Liam Hemsworth joined the good guys and fit in pretty well. A female was also added to the team, Nan Yu did great in the role. It was a perfect fit and added a nice balance. Rounding out the new additions was Chuck Norris who had a couple of really good scenes.

Like any good over the top action movie, there was plenty of gun battles, explosions and cheesy one liners. The story rushes along a bit, but it also covers a lot of territory. Everyone gets their moment to shine, and overall, it was a fun, entertaining action flick. If you love action movies and old action heroes, you’ll probably enjoy this one. I give The Expendables 2 a three out of five metal bikinis.
