I absolutely cannot describe how much I loved this movie. I know it’s not going to be for everyone. It’s very action-packed and quite violent at times, so you have to like that kind of movie. But seeing all those veteran action movie stars together in one movie just made me want to do the fist pump. Stallone, Statham, Schwarzenegger, Norris, Van Damme, Lundgren….and more. Jet Li was in it for a short scene. I had no idea Jean-Claude Van Damme was going to be in this movie. He plays a VERY bad man. And he did it so well!

I kept thinking the young guy that was with them looked SO familiar. He looked like someone, but I couldn’t figure it out. I began to think he looked a little like Chris Hemsworth (Thor). Well, no wonder. It was his brother, Liam! And yes, he’s eye candy just like his brother.

One thing I was really hoping for was a fight scene between Jason Statham and Jean-Claude Van Damme. They are two of my favorite martial artists. I remember the first time I ever saw Statham, the sheer beauty of his fighting style took my breath away. He makes everything so SMOOTH. But, alas, both of them ended up fighting other people. Statham got to fight another martial artist. But Van Damme fought someone who was more of a…brawler. LOL. I won’t say who fought who because that might be a spoiler.

Anyway, some people, I’m sure, will find all kinds of criticisms about the movie. It always happens. Everyone doesn’t like everything. But, I was at the edge of my seat the whole movie. There was so much action! And there were some laugh out loud moments, especially when references to some other movies the stars were in were mentioned. All in all, it was such an entertaining movie for me. This is one time when I liked the sequel better than the original, although I did like the first one. This is one I would watch again in a heartbeat.
