Not expendable at all

The Expendables 2. This is, perhaps, one of the most ridiculously awesome and bloody gross movies ever. You've got to appreciate extensive blood spatter if you're going to sit through this one. Bullets! Knives! Fists! Bombs! Helicopter propellers!
The whole movie was pretty amazing. Appreciate that all these older guys -- Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Chuck Norris, Dolph Lundgren, and Jean-Claude Van Damme -- have had some bits of plastic surgery; (most) are still dabbling (probably) in steroids of some kind; and all are thoroughly enjoying themselves on this movie. It's like Ocean's Eleven for the guns and blood types. The younger guys -- Jason Statham, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Jet Li, and Liam Hemsworth -- clearly are excited to be a part of this clique, and make it all the better.
Cheesy excitements throughout the movie: ... 1. Watching all these guys, who have handled guns in most of their movies, handle the guns in this movie, and look so natural doing it. ... 2. Rolling my eyes at the recycled quotes from other movies, i.e., "I'll be back," "Yippee kai ay," and "Trust me," as well as a mention of Rambo, and the Western high-noon music for Norris. ... 3. So many heads being blown up! ... 4. Van Damme kicking and Stallone punching. Willis smirking. All of them with perfectly straight and whitened teeth. ... 5. It was really loud. I think they had the volume set to 11.
