The Expendables 2 Film Trailer Review
There are some movies that are meant to be left alone, untouched for any sequels, remakes or reboots. Once Hollywood don't take such heed, well let us just say that both fans and critics would bash it like a pinata with its content all over the place. But then there are some films that are just asking to be continued and Expendables is one of them.
Where do action film superstars go when they have lived their golden days? Well, besides their multibillion retirement life or a life of charity, some actually decided to actually cast them into one mega movie which Lionsgate did in the first The Expendables action movie back in 2010. With such successful sales and reception, it is expected for the studios to make a sequel and that is what they did with The Expendables 2. What can be said about the ultimate action star collaboration sequel? It is just that! Setting aside my usual critical taste when reviewing trailers and films, The Expendables 2 movie trailer just show one actual scene which doesn't tell or preview much about the plot (which is both a good and bad thing when I usually review trailers) then it's all just faces of past and present action movie superstars flashing afterwards. Why would not the trailer do that? It is not the complex storyline or the acting that would make movie goers flock the theater to watch this, but the actual idea of putting all of these once were and probably still are popular action film into one good solid two and more hours of mindless action fun. If you grew up watching action movies starring any actors in this film, then this is a no brainer and you'll eventually watch it... in any format you like.
