The Expendables 2 is ONZ on middle of this month (August), all I wanted to say is this movie is awesome! But . . . . there is few part of storyline is slightly disappointing, I will
post full of crap key in many spoiler in the character introduction. There is so many character in this movie, it is slightly easy to guess which character give huge impact in this movie storyline if you finish watching The Expendables 2 latest movie trailer.
Sylvester Stallone as Barney Ross, the leader of Expendables. Enjoy seeing him doing all the crazy things such as: how he party crashing with his big air plane into the enemy base! As a leader, he fight the final boss at the end of the movie too, which is so predictable.
Jason Statham as Lee Christmas, mightiest dagger man alive on this earth! What I know about him as "Super Cool Dual Wield Rogue" (TOO MUCH WORLD OF WARCRAFT!), the way he toss his knives reminds me of a skill called "Fan of Knives" from Maiev.
Arnold Schwarzenegger as Trench, he will yell "I'm Back!!" when his appearance on the movie screen. Trust me, one of the main reason to watch this movie is because of him, but the way he hold his weapon is not as imbalance as Chuck Norris.
Liam Hemsworth as Bill The Kid, I seriously like this this character so much especially the sniper skill is fascinating. [Spoiler] At the end he got killed by Vilain on the mission retrieving the "map" of the plutonium, he died on 20-30minute inside this movie.
Chuck Norris as Booker aka Lone Wolf, everyone (audience) seems to be stun when he appeared. It is predictable about his appearance but didn't predict that his joke will appear in this movie too! The way he "sweep" his enemies by using his machine gun is dam imbalance, I suggest Simon West (Director) need to nerf this character ASAP! LOL!
Bruce Willis as Church, it seems that Mr. Church finally have more appearance in The Expendables 2. He hired Expendables to do his job while in "The Expendables (2010)", he appear in this movie because he accuse that Barney Ross stole his 5million and he want Barney to settle another mission to get it even.
Jean-Claude Van Damme as Vilain, and yes! He is the villain in this movie, leading a group of army and search for plutonium in some mines. He also "recruit" people whose stay nearby to search for plutonium, then the stories begin . . .
Jet Li(李连杰) as Yin Yang, you can watch him on first 10minute in this movie. Because he need to send a person go back to his safety location, and he will not appear right after his disappearance.
Yu Nan(余男) as Maggie, nothing much information about her real life story. Her character specialization is: break the password to open the secured stash.
Randy Couture as Toll Road, Dolph Lundgren as Gunner Jensen and Terry Crews as Hale Caesar. Dolph Lundgren seems to be full of humor in this movie, and Terry Crews is still awesome powsome. Everytime I see Terry Crews, it only reminds me about White Chicks (2004).
Knock Knock! Who is there? Boom!
My rating would be 6.5/10, full of explosive effect plus fighting scene which is fist to fist, which makes the audience blood boil. And also showing off that the Expendables is not perfect at all, some bad people appear from nowhere and hijack Expendables stuff. I like the way how they spill the fake blood all over the place, when they land a punch on the enemy face, can win over Conan the Barbarian (2011). Character wise is the impact on the rating, many china people will be unhappy with this movie just because Jet Li appearance time and duration.
Compare with the first movie of Expendables, this movie is much more better. (because I watch part of it while I was having dinner in some restaurant . . .) Last and not least, I would like to thanks Nuffnang for movie ticket and some goodies.
