No, not the Prompt – might do that later. Or not. Would depend entirely on mood as the evening progresses.
The Kid got us DVD’s. Asks me what he should get. my answer – Kick, shoot and kill. And if Jason Statham is anywhere in the equation, so much the better.
He got us Expendables II.
Absolutely loved it! yes, I realise I’m seriously behind the times – suppose everybody has already seen it like years ago. all I can say in my defense, I don’t get out much 😉
Still. enjoyed the movie. All the gore. The usual plot. Actually enjoyed every single hit planted on the bad guys. Loved watching Mr Statham flow like water. Such fluidity, such poetry in motion. OK, OK, I know. Wolverine is still my best man, but Jase works for me in many other ways 😉
The banter between the characters were unusual – they’re usually way too serious.
Stallone is looking better than ever. Willis – just the same. Even old Arnie was able to joke around with himself a bit.
I think they got the mix just right.
It’s a fluff movie. You know what’s going to happen. All that might be different is the spots in which they get to shoot a myriad of random people. What plans they come up with to rescue the poor villagers from their fate. Enjoyed hearing the 50 cal sounds – brought back memories.
Of course, Chuck Norris deserves a special mention – in his own words. He was bitten by a King Cobra. And after five days of excruciating pain, the cobra died 😉 Gotta love ’em!
All in all, I enjoyed the movie. Even though van Damme turned out to be seriously bad dude and got what he deserved, and then some, I got up from my seat feeling quite a bit better about life in general.
So, if you’re like me, and don’t get out much, do watch this movie – I can certainly recommend it as an evening of fun and jokes, where the bad guy gets his come-uppance, and the good guys mostly win.
And this was the song playing during the end credits…
