Ooh, I hope it's as good as the last one!

What a great movie ... from 1988.
 
2012-05-03 08:48:32 PM  
I'm looking forward to it...good old action movie!
 
2012-05-03 08:53:56 PM  
The Expendables...where action heroes go to die.

/Oh, who am I kidding--that looks fun.
 
2012-05-03 09:20:08 PM  
I'll definitely watch it. But probably not in a theater.
 
2012-05-03 09:44:54 PM  
Looks horrible.

Can't wait.

Nadie_AZ: What a great movie ... from 1988.


...and since they don't make them like that any more, I can't wait until this comes out.

I hope they follow this up with 10 more sequels, too - but expect a "Reboot" in 2042.

If it was actually rated R, I might watch it in the theatre. But since Norris had to bring his fundie bullshiat into it... looks like a nice redbox selection for a rainy saturday afternoon.

No, apparently it's R again.

I thought the first movie had a great premise, but the dialogue and acting was terrible.

Maybe they were intentionally going for that level of cheese, but the lines were delivered uneven and flat, as if the characters didn't actually understand the very puns and quips they volleyed at each other. Like they were literally reading cue cards.

And having every character express themselves in that same flat, faux-witty banter made the movie feel very affected. There's no personality or differentiation of style when everyone talks the same way. I'm sure the jokes looked funny on paper but something seriously went wrong when they transcribed to screen. Or maybe it was the piss-poor direction.

Good action scenes though.

It's like there's nostalgia being directly pumped into my veins.

All we need is Seagal and it's all over.
 
2012-05-03 10:07:10 PM  
OH wait, this actually looks kinda good.

and...did I see..... Chuck Norris? ...like a hidden cameo?

bdub77: Looks horrible.

Pretty much this.

Too bad I'm broke. This is classic go to the theatre 12 times in a row with 50 friends on a Saturday crap.

/would Bruce Li be in a movie like this?
//Would Carradine?
///Needs more blaxpoitation superheroes

Van Damme's character's name is Vilain.
Yes, really.

Ishkur: OH wait, this actually looks kinda good.

I didn't think it was a cameo. I thought everybody knew about that?
 
2012-05-03 10:28:12 PM  
How come they're called the Expendables, and not a single one of them ever dies? Even Dolph Lundgren, who gets shot in the farking chest, survives. Come on. But I do like their commitment to cheesiness. One of the Expendables sneaks up to a room w/ 6 bad guys in it, he kills 8 of them, and 4 of them run away. That's Action Movie Math at its finest.

Six_By_Nine: I didn't think it was a cameo. I thought everybody knew about that?


I don't pay attention to any movie spoiler sites or anything, and they don't bill him in the trailer and they keep his identity hidden and dialogue non-existent, sooo....

I liked the first one because it no bullshiat love story in it
 
2012-05-03 11:12:47 PM  
I came...
 
2012-05-03 11:17:34 PM  
Had to turn the first one off after the Budapest pun. That was brutal.
 
2012-05-03 11:26:40 PM  
I went into the first one expecting an entertainingly bad cheesy action movie and with that mindset, it did not disappoint. As long as the first one is entertainingly bad and not boringly bad, I'll be happy.
 
2012-05-03 11:29:02 PM  
It still needs Chow Yun Fat killing countless jumpsuited mooks.

Six_By_Nine: I didn't think it was a cameo. I thought everybody knew about that?


Well I heard his voice but hes not listed in the credits until you go to the wiki page, now if they get segal back they can have a full on 80s early 90s action film, hell get kurt russel/clint eastwood to include the 70s action stars. Speaking of action stars they should get the guy from Gymkata to do a cameo, that would be great or the guy from The Last Dragon........

Trocadero: How come they're called the Expendables, and not a single one of them ever dies?


Supposedly one of the team dies this time, who that is I dont know but maybe one is expendable, this time.......

Dude, when they're typing out the names in steel at the end of the trailer, "Norris" is there plain as day.

Not a cameo. Watch it again.

Given that both of Arnold's lines were straight-up '80s one-liners, I'm figuring that his entire corner of the script is going to be the same. If so, I'll watch the fark out of this movie despite finding the last one boring.

I caught Icharus on Encore a couple of weeks ago.

I'm confused as to how Dolph keeps getting acting jobs.
 
2012-05-04 12:13:22 AM  
Fark yes I am going to see this. In theaters. With zero irony. I thought the first one was fun as shait.

From what I've read, Sly put the original together on the premise of doing a movie that they'd all enjoy doing, with plenty of scenes for all of them to stand out in their own ways.

They had 'such' fun putting it together that they changed the ending of the movie so that Dolph's character could come back for a sequel, if the movie was successful enough for them to make a sequel.
 
2012-05-04 12:31:15 AM  
Will Jean Claude Van-Damme be nude? I will not see it unless he is nude. Van-Damme is a super-hottie and I want to see more of him nude.

/nude

That's so bad it's good.
 
2012-05-04 01:27:33 AM  
I guess Sly isn't aware that exactly 0 people think Chuck Norris is still a badass (in a non-ironic way). Raise your hand if you smirked when his name was shown.
 
2012-05-04 01:44:33 AM  
Also, it needs Mickey Rourke sneaking in another Oscar-worthy scene in the middle for no reason.

He's older than me, but in better shape. Doesn't matter what kind of shape he's in, those balls are sagging at his age. Can't fight the sag unless you're so delusional you get a plastic surgeon to tighten them up.

He's probably that delusional. Go nuts :) (**)
 
2012-05-04 02:13:16 AM  
I can't wait. Loved the first one because it was all it was hyped up to be: an hour or so of 90's action stars blowing shiat up and mercilessly beating the shiat out of the bad guys. I'm expecting the same from this one.

I like it when balls hang and dangle low. Watch 'em swing and sway, cup and play with them, good fun. Besides, his best feature is that delicious muscled ass.

i agree! being that i was born i the early 80's and adds more screen time to the 2 people that only had cameos in the last one makes this must see. for some reason though, Chuck doesn't seem to fit. nothing to do with his religion, but i just don't remember him as an 80'/early 90's action star. maybe it's me.
 
2012-05-04 03:04:21 AM  
a "n" and an "it" somehow didn't make it...probably commas
 
2012-05-04 04:02:32 AM  

R.P.M.: i just don't remember him as an 80'/early 90's action star. maybe it's me.


You don't remember Missing in Action or the Delta Force? ...he rode a motorcycle with rocket launchers mounted on the sides. And it had one of the most triumphant action movie scores to come out of the 80s.

I Like Bread: Also, it needs Mickey Rourke sneaking in another Oscar-worthy scene in the middle for no reason.


That was the best part. Here's a movie with a ridiculous plot, terrible acting and even worse dialogue, then out of nowhere Mickey Rourke just drops some heavy duty shiat, really lays the wisdom on thick. It almost makes you forget you're watching a mindless action movie. Almost.
 
2012-05-04 05:31:20 AM  
I watched the first one knowing it'd be dumb, but thought there'd be a tongue-in-cheek nostalgia factor to it that'd make the stupidity acceptable, even welcome. I was wrong. It wasn't good, dumb fun. It was just dumb.

I'm definitely with you on the watching anything with Jason Statham bit. Safe was a great popcorn movie.

No shiat.

Chuck Norris? Lame. Fark that guy.

/still watch it though
 
2012-05-04 07:35:52 AM  
The first one featured dudes throwing grenades at nothing, just to add to the explosions already going on. I'll be there opening weekend.

Every single word of THIS. Except sneaking the beer, there's a local place where I can go watch a movie and they serve beer in the theater.

It's not high cinema, but DAMN it looks like a fun popcorn-and-beer flick. Plus anything where Jason Statham takes his shirt off (which is everything he's in so far, more or less) is pretty much an automatic 'SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY' from me.

Nadie_AZ: What a great movie ... from 1988.


Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. Plastic face Stallone looks ridiculous, and Arnold. Come on. He looks like a fat old guy now, hidden in loose fitting clothes and spouting lines from the 80's. Van Damme looks great, but come on. Half the cast is senior citizens. It's not "fun"...it's stupid.

That's the point. They've made no excuses for these movies and fully went into them tongue planted firmly in cheek.


LegacyDL: It's like there's nostalgia being directly pumped into my veins.

All we need is Seagal and it's all over.


Actually, I heard that one of Van Damme's stipulations for even joining the movie was that Seagal NOT be in it. Link
