Directed by: Simon West

Release Date: August 17, 2012
The first Expendables was kinda… eh. It didn’t a well thought out story. I felt like the intention of that movie was to just have a movie with a crapload of guns, knives, fighting, action, and men. I mean, it was pretty cool with all of that stuff in it, but my favorite kind of movie is a movie with a really good story. The Expendables just didn’t work too well for me. It seems like every Sylvester Stalone movie except the first couple Rocky’s and Rambo’s were good. Now he just goes out and makes a movie for the sake of making a movie.
We also didn’t really get a look into the story at all, I’m assuming it’s because it has no REAL story like the first one. Sylvester Stalone should be in a movie where he has no say in the story or script, and then see how it goes. But hey, maybe I’m wrong. Plus, Chuck Norris wouldn’t join the cast unless it was going to be rated PG-13. So you know what they did? They fixed it so it wouldn’t be rated R, instead PG-13. Just a warning, they were holding back on us for this one. Chuck Norris is cool and all but come on… I’ll probably just see this on DVD when it comes out.
Overall Trailer Rating: 7.5
Cinematic Look: 8.0
