Vagary Film Review: The Expendables 2

Vagary writes:
The lack of any meaningful narrative compounds and ultimately hurts the major selling point of the film, the action. Because so little time is spent on the story, action scenes are the bulk of the film, which sounds like a glorious experience. Except without anything to ground the action and give it meaning the action becomes sensory overload. There are only so many exploding heads that can be watched before a sense of fatigue sets in. Still there is a sense of fun to it all with the one-liners coming at a nice clip and being genuinely funny for those that have a history with the material that has inspired the franchise. It is not a great movie and a letdown when compared to the original but given the right mindset could be entertaining on the most base of levels.

The story is too old to be commented.
