Win! One Of 15 Double Passes To See Expendables 2

How can this movie even really exist? If you travelled back in time and told my 12 year old self that Sly, Arnie, JCVD, and Bruce Willis would star in the same movie together, I'm pretty sure my brain would have started leaking out of my eyeballs in disbelief. Then I would have done the moonwalk for five hours straight. But yeah, that movie is happening — it's in cinemas this Thursday — and we have tickets to give away.

To win one of 15 double passes, all you have to do is answer this question in the most imaginative way possible...

If you took The Expendable 2 back in time and showed it to your 12 year old self, how would you react?

Entries close 4pm (AEST) this Wednesday, and we'll announce the winners before the week is out.

Good luck and don’t forget to watch the movie at Event Cinemas VMAX for the best action!

Full terms and conditions here.


    I'd probably call the Police and inform them that a creepy looking guy claiming to be me from the future wants to take me to a room and show me a ' really cool movie'.

    I would say to my future self . you have a F-ing time machine and you bring back this??? How the hell does it fit into the VHS and where is my jetpack!!! What everyone doesnt have jetpacks!!! You didnt bring the lotto results either? you are useless future self.

      My future self is also still waiting for HL3 apparently.

    I would lose my shit that Arnie was back to the good days of shooting guys in the face after he took a hiatus last year to get himself pregnant and have a baby.

    I'm sure I would look on in shock & awe at my 12 year old self as, after sharing the news of the wonder that is the testosterone fuelled epic called The Expendables series, my 12 year old self is suddenly infused with said testosterone and starts sporting a chin beard the likes of which even Chuck Norris would tremble in fear of.

    I now continue to live out my days in fear that Chuck Norris may read this post and promptly roundhouse kick me into oblivion as punishment.

    If you took The Expendable 2 back in time and showed it to your 12 year old self, how would you react?
    My first reaction would be why are these currently popular actors so old, my second reaction would be who the hell are you and how did you get in my house

    I'd probably be just like this kid here ^^

    I would finish puberty in an instant. and sprout hair all over due to the massive amounts of testosterone that will be pumping from that movie.
    Then I will ask WTF happened to Stallone's face
    And then I would ask future self to buy me transformers as i was a huge fan back when I was 12.

    I would say to myself, I could watch a silverback gorilla snatch a great white shark out of the water and throw it like a spear through the side of a rampaging bull elephant and I'd still think, Well, that was manly, but it wasn't as Manly as the Expendables 2 is going to be. Kotaku "YOU SON OF A B*TCH"

      *Expendables 2.

    Compared to everything else avaliable then? Piss my pants! My mind would explode with the action!

    Past me allows the weird adult standing at his doorstep into the house at the promise of doughnuts and a good movie. The movie is excellent and enjoyed by both parties involved. I then relay the following information to past me:
    -There will one day be a new Jurrasic Park movie
    -There is never a fourth Indianna Jones movie
    Who reacts by promising to hold this information dear to his heart, yet promptly forgets the next day. Forcing me to sit through the horrors of "the Kindom of theCrystal skull"

    I was 12 in 1995. Arnie's most recent movie was Twins, Stallones was Judge Dredd and JCVD had just brought us Street Fighter: The Movie. Meanwhile Bruce Willis was responsible for both 12 Monkeys and Die Hard: With a Vengeance. The only sane response would be "Gee, Bruce Willis is really slumming it here...".

    I'd stare at me in amazement, then pull up my Vanilla Ice dancing pants and go back to my TMNT pogs. Because Ninja Turtles are awesome, and pogs are awesome, and if you put them together NOTHING could ever be more awesome.

    1993-SRG would probably flip out and start punching and kicking random things out of pure exuberance! When you're a pre-teen, destruction is a sign of _love_.

    He would be pretty impressed. Less impressed that I had failed at my childhood vow to be in the same movie with them. I would have to put the blame on that lazy kid for not studying acting and/or martial arts.

    Past me would do the "Gangnam Style" dance with me (since Present me taught my past self how to do the dance) while we watch the movie and quote a Chuck Norris joke every time he appears because the jokes were new back then

    I'd be more interested in the Delorean... Wondering if I could go for a ride in the passenger seat.

      1.21 JIGGAWATTS?!

    i'd feel as though i'd fallen into my own "Last Action Hero" dream!

    I would say HOLY ASS what wasted potential, and then proceed to predict an ok movie that prob doesn't quite add up to the sum of its parts. Never the less friends would be invited round for the strangest movie night ever, and quickly get annoyed as both me and my future self still mooch all their food off them.

    I would tell myself to never do weights and have old man boobs when I'm older like these guys ...

    If I showed my 12 year old self?

    Hit puberty 2 years earlier than what I did. Also probably would've grown an instant beard.

    I would've been excited for about a year, dressed in camo gear, waiting for the VHS video to come out at my local video store.

    If I tried to show it to my 12 year old self, he wouldn't be interested. Sure, time travel would be cool, but I'm not a terminator and at 12 years old it was impossible to peel me away from watching Terminator 2. My parents tried and failed dismally - maybe it was the fact that they tried to use The Sound of Music to stop me watching Terminator 2, I'm not sure.
