THE EXPENDABLES 2: Early Thoughts On The Sequel
The Expendables was a fun romp of a movie. Now, they are coming out with a sequel bringing the majority of the cast from the first film back for a second pass at the tale. With this many testosterone driven action stars on the screen at the same time audiences expect things to start quickly, run quickly, and blow up regularly. As long as the producers, writers, and directors stay within the idea that theyâ€™re making a picture to be fun but not Oscar material in anyway; things should go well.
As long as the formula from the first movie continues movie goers should be in for an excellent ride. There should be plenty of chest-thumping explosions, riveting firefights, and more than a few one liners peppered in for good measure. The Expendables idea can prove to be a repeatable franchise if everyone involved remains true to the idea that they are making an all-star film for action adventure fans, not something that has an overly complicated love interest.
