Can't believe people thought the first one was awesome, it was terrible. It was barely an action movie apart from the first bit and the last bit.

Look at the best action films - they're a sequence of set pieces. Terminator 2 is the best example IMO. The mall bit, the motorbike chase, the blowing up of the headquarters, the helicopter/truck chase, the factory finale.

Expendables didn't do this. it was all build-up to the finale, and it sucked. A good action film should suck but in a different way.

Dubz, there is "Action Movies" then there is "80s Action Movies"

Terminator 2 is the first
The Expendables is the second

They might appear to be the same genre to the untrained eye, but they are not, so stop comparing them.

No the expendables is not the 2nd type, they missed the mark, by a long way.

It was just wank, took itself far too seriously.

2nd one needs to have Arnie as the lead.

No, it wasnt. Predator was awesome. True Lies was awesome. Under Seige was awesome. Demolition Man was awesome. Bloodsport was awesome. Airforce One was awesome.

The expendables was boring, bleak, lame, tried way too hard and totally failed to hit the mark.

The Extended Directors cut of The Expendables changes a few of the dialogue lines, and makes it better imo

Funnily enough, you've pretty much summarised your ITM persona.

Chuck norris you whinging ****!

Let's not worry about people getting blown to pieces, let's worry about language used more commonly in society than not.

"oh ive been shot. Oh bother"

Vs

"oh you arsehole, the rusty **** bucket shot me in the fucken leg"

Unfortunately Chuck Norris has started believing his own hype, he himself has done nothing memorable in years (if not decades), the internet resurrected his career http://www.chucknorrisfacts.com/

Well, I'm looking forward to the sequel. Yes, the first one took itself too seriously - wasn't really what I expected...
But still I liked it - found it really refreshing. You don't get a lot of simple good-guys-kick-some-bad-guys-asses kind of action movies these days...right? No drama, no tragedy, happy end, yipee!
