    The expendables 2 has a lot of action hero's in this one movie, will it be a flop or not a flop?

    It's a novelty act.

    Of course it will do well.

    Just to set the record straight: when it comes to an action movie like this, I'm not looking for any deep, religious meanings; not interested in trying to figure out any hidden implications about the social order of man; not looking for heavy dialog that reveals the hero's internal conflict about using violence in the name of a good cause; don't even care if it's humanly possible to really knock someone down with a double-reverse spin kick to the head.

    I'm just looking for testosterone-laden action. The more far-fetched, the better. I'm looking for the bad guy to say, "oh sh*t!" when the good guy he thought was blown up shows up with a cocky "go-ahead-make-my-day-punk" type punchline before he kills the bad guy in some imaginative, unrealistic, way.

    That and a big tits scene.

    Movies like this are like the glut of Marvel comic book hero movies; good triumphs over evil, there is mega-destruction, and cutesy dialogue.
    Nothing that even comes close to real life. But that's okay cause that is why most of us go to the movies; to escape real life.

    Oh c'mon people, wouldn't you rather be watching something ultra-alpha-macho like...

    ...Prince of Tides?

    I thought the 'kill count' was exaggerated, but liked the one-on-one fisticuffs and the sea-plane scenes.
    Agree. Didn't want my money back and will go see E-2.
