      • I think you meant to say you want me to explain why I enjoyed it so much. Well, I’ll try to.
        Do you remember the action movies in the 90s? There was a Rambo – like leading character (usually played by Stallone himself, or by Schwarzenegger) forced to fight against innumerous enemies: any other man would have been doomed, but our hero, with his guns, muscles, fight techniques and (last but not least) brain, was always able to find a way out.
        Then the 90s ended, the 00s passed, and, when the 10s started, we were all thinking that this kind of movies was gone for good.
        Luckily, we were wrong: Stallone decided to make a big reunion of all the living legends starring in those wonderful 90s movies, and, beyond every expectation, the movie he made was wonderful, and did very well at the box office. The sequel was as fun as the first chapter, and is making a lot of money as well.
        Team 7 is exactly like The Expendables, it is the exact translation of that kind of movies in the comic book language. That’s why I enjoyed it so much. What do you think about it?
