        More of the same over the top action, with even more cameos this time. Including Chuck Norris, More Willis and Schwarzenegger time on screen and even more cheesy lines. If they do any more they will start to be listed under comedies not action films.

        Where "The Expendables" failed to take itself seriously and benefitted from doing so, "The Expendables 2" does the complete opposite and soars above modern action films from doing so. Not devoid of jokes, just like "Live Free or Die Hard," the film is self-aware, but develops the plot and the characters just enough to where we actually feel bad when one of them dies. We're rooting for their characters this time around, whereas with the original, we were rooting for them because they're action heroes. Bloody, violent, dark, grisly, everything you want from an action film with Stallone, and we even get a few Chuck Norris jokes in the meantime. Very well done and diametrically opposite from so many modern action films. - "Crank," "The Bourne Supremacy," "Skyline," etc.
