The Expendables, leader Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), blades specialist Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), martial artist Yin Yang (Jet Li), weapons specialist Hale Caesar (Terry Crews), demolitions expert Toll Road (Randy Couture), the unstable Gunner Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), and sniper Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth), the group's youngest and newest member, are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists them to take on a seemingly simple job. When things go wrong,  when one of their men is murdered on the job, the expendables is all out for revenge. But the enemy that awaited them was no simple deal....

The first part was kinda dumb ass for me, just loads of no-brainier action. Well this time also its the same its presented in a much much better way. The story is same as the first one you have to kill the bad guy and save the world (or whatever).  when emotions don't work, they don't connect with, no matter how brilliant the action sequences are they don't work beyond a point . But this time its told with emotions and told brilliantly, Simon west who took over from Stallone has done a great job. those who didn't like the first part or who haven't seen it yet can watch this and have a blast.

Those who look for logic, story and stuff like better stay at home. Its an out an out action fiesta just like a Mass Masala south Indian movie. "NO LOGIC BUT SHIT LOAD OF MAGIC !!"

The major plus point of the film is the bullet pace screen play which this time has told with conviction and emotion. Also the mind blowing action sequences which has been choreographed beautifully. Just like in the first part they don't time enough to think about logic or loop holes in it, it keeps you hooked through out the run time.

Apart from the action, one thing you expect from the film is the quirky one-lines which are in double dose this time, infact each and every word Statham mouths is a punch line. They are in plenty like the ever green "I am Back" "You have been back, now its my turn" "Your A** will be 'TERMINATED'" etc etc

If none of the above excites you watch it atleast for the stellar star cast. You have got all the world's best bad ass action heroes in a single movie. Jason Statham is as always full on rocking. Stallone and rest of the expendables were good. Jet Li gets only a cameo length role this time. Eventhough for a few scenes its a treat to watch Bruce Willi's & Arnold on screen, especially in the climax sequence. Also got to see Van Damme after a while in a villain role., who gets side lined a bit because its all about heroes.

Remember its an all boys world out there, so all ladies if u don't like BIG GUNS & boys Playing with them don't even bother watching it.

So want to have a blast of a weekend, sit back, dont care about anything, relax kinda a weekend GRAB A TICKET damns soon !!!!

Verdict:  Quit Reading & GO Watch it !!!

Rating 3.5/5

Box Office: Already a hit in US , should be the same in India too
