Day 324

movie: The Expendables 2
starring: Jason Statham, Sylvester Stallone
genre: Action
year: 2012
format: Shaw Video On Demand

plot: A group of ex military/CIA guys are brought together to retrieve a set of blueprints, but during a hostage situation, they loose one of their own men. Soon, the mission turns to one of revenge.

This is a straight up - shoot'em up. With little dialogue.  The bit of dialogue that it does have is gut splitting one liners.  Like Bruce Willis telling Arnold Schwarzenegger  that he's been back enough and it's his turn to be back.

The plot is a bit on the thin side, but what it lacks in logic -such as a scene where they are all running from a mob of gunfire and suddenly they are in a plane with no explanation as to how or when- it makes up for in bullets.

Bullets and Chuck Norris.

what do i think i learned from this film?
I have literally been sitting here for five minutes running a blank on what I might have learned serious or silly, all I can think of is Jason Statham didn't have a large a role as I had hoped. And who might be cast for the very rumoured female version.
