Back in 2010, I was lucky enough to work the red carpet of The Expendables while I was interning in Los Angeles with Ashley Bell, a client at the PR firm I interned for.Although not all the stars attended this premiere, stars Terry Crews and Randy Couture made an appearance. They also did a Q&A after the film. It was a great fan experience. The kid sitting beside my boyfriend had his Old Spice autographed by Couture and he could not have been happier. He smiled through the whole film!
I enjoyed the first one but I think I enjoyed the sequel even more. It was very action packed. Throughout the whole film, cars were exploding, kicks and punches were being throw and heads were being blow off. But it was funny, too! The jokes were great. Little pop culture references taking the audience back to their favourite action films starring their favourite action dudes. Scenes with Bruce Willis, Arnold @Schwarzenegger, and Chuck Norris were absolutely hilarious.
I highly recommend the film. It has a good balance of action for the guys, a hint of romance for the girls, and comedy for both!
The film hits theatres everywhere on August 17th.
