The Expendables 3(2014)
Sylvester Stallone's trilogy-making Expendables, which sees the return of himself, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren and Arnold Schwarzenegger. They are joined by another bevy of action movie icons - Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Harrison Ford and Mel Gibson.... More
Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team come face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson). Stonebanks, a co-founder of The Expendables group, subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone Barney was forced to kill... or so he thought. Stonebanks is now making it his mission to end The Expendables. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise.Hide

The 3rd instalment of this testosterone-heavy franchise improves on its predecessor in at least one way: it capitalizes on its stunt casting, giving Gibson, Ford, Snipes and Grammer actual roles to play. Their screen time is brief, sure, but after all the guests in part 2 were seemingly pushed into shot, handed a gun and told to wing it, it's nice to see them get some stuff to do in this one.... More
Ok, Schwarzenegger and Jet Li are pretty wasted, but they get to shoot a lot of people and goof off a bit. Oh, and Antonio Banderas turns up, seemingly finding it all hilarious and proceeding to chew massive amounts of scenery. On top of all that there's a new batch of Expendables as well as the old ones, and, yeah, things get a bit overstuffed.
There is something dazzling about seeing all these action icons on screen, and it's pleasant enough to kill a few hours watching them bro out. This despite the weird tone that has the Expendables talking to each other in a way that suggests they’re joking, without actually saying anything funny.
This instalment is mostly free of onscreen blood, a measure taken to secure a PG13 rating in the U.S. There is ample carnage though, with one scene seeing our heroes casually slaughter an entire army.
So, it’s another helping of uber-violence and genial horseplay, an uneasy mix that has become The Expendables' stock in trade, and remains interesting mainly for the presence of all those famous, grizzled faces.Hide

Awesome movie. All the 'buffs' on here will say the acting was bad or the script was shyte and those same buffs would get the boom slapped out of them by the buffs in this film. You don't have to think 'i wonder what there trying to say with this scene' it's just boom boom boom you understand and enjoy it no arty guessing involved. FIVE STARS

If you paid to see the first two, then what are you waiting for?! This is a fun action packed film where the baddies all get the snot beaten outta them, or shot or blown up!! (or all of the aforementioned) No thinking required, just sit back and remember when digital effects didn't exist, and actual stunt men did kick ass action sequences and they blow heaps of $**% up with actual explosives!! Good times..!!
