Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Pleasantly dumb fun if you watch it with the right mind-set. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, Aug 16, 2012

Fresh: The movie is excellent crap, fine junk, an exercise in campy movie nostalgia, and a demonstration of American supremacy in the field of nutty cosmetic enhancements for aging movie stars. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Aug 16, 2012

Fresh: The Expendables 2 is corny, barbaric and sometimes visually murky. But humor and self-deprecating macho charm make this male pattern badness crowd-pleasing fun. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Aug 16, 2012

Rotten: "The Expendables 2" is lazily satisfied with repeating the first movie's formula, shortcomings and grisly strengths alike, just as the first movie was content to slavishly, ploddingly cover the hits of the '80s. – Tom Russo, Boston Globe, Aug 23, 2012

not really worth it if you have the theatrical version.

if you already own the theatrical version there really isn't that much difference. some more cheesy lines and thats about it. i'd stick with the theatrical. too bad i spent 20 extra bucks to find that out.

The only way to watch this movie!!!

Came across the directors cut on ppv not realizing it was the directors cut... One of the greatest movies in a long time, great cast and awesome scenes. Music in the final shoot out makes the scene infinitely better. Decided I had to own this movie, not realizing I had seen the directors cut and was very disappointed in the theatrical version... A decent movie on its own but just not the same. BUY THIS VERSION IT'S WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!
