In THE EXPENDABLES 3, Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team come face- to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill... or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables, but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables 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 in the Expendables‚ most personal battle yet.

The film opens with the usual impossible rescue scene. This time it is to rescue Wesley Snipes who will be known as Dr. Death. To his dismay they did so because they needed a fifth for a mission, one that fails. Stallone must go after Mel Gibson, who is not dead, really, but decides to retire his team because he fears for their life. Kelsey Grammer helps him recruit a new team, one that is more akin to an MIB force which includes Kellen Lutz, Ronda Rousey, and Victor Ortiz. Things go their formulaic way and the old guys plus the very talkative Antonio Banderas join the picture...again.

Harrison Ford flew a helicopter like Hans Solo, Jet Li had a minor role that we can see expanding, and of course Arnold is back.

The film is lengthy and spends time to quickly develop all the new players. The banter was not as good as the previous films, but was still acceptable. Banderas' character has "Peter Sellers" potential as a screw up who seems to luck into things.

What best came out of this film was the potential for the next one.

Parental Guide: 1-2 F-bombs. No sex or nudity.

So, apparently Stonebanks was killed by Stallone's character in the past but.. recently Stallone's character finds out Stonebanks was wearing body armour! *shock*

It doesn't matter as this film is light hearted and yet dark underneath it's jovial surface.

I always find that martial arts in the Expendables series saves it. Expendables 2 had plenty of this and was alot of fun for it. Watching Stallone point and shoot his gun with one shot kills isn't quite frankly.

Luckily the female in this seems to display some ju jitsu based skills that is a nice touch to the action scenes. The gun play here is entertaining enough if you can go with it. Fast edits as the action mounts gets all the characters in doing their part in the action from Snipes, Statham, Banderos, Lundgren etc..

Jet Li shows up on the films last 3rd but does no notable action scenes, especially in the martial arts realm which is disappointing. This 3rd in the series continues the craziness of beating the odds but with a little less hand to hand combat and more bangs and whistles instead. The feeling that 'no one is going to die so I'll watch to see how believable Stallone can make it look' is what you end up with.

It's entertaining enough in the realms of just enjoy the fireworks, but it's depth of story and screenplay is just mocking one liners and sarcastic quips. It's action, it's fun... just.. but I doubt once you've seen it you'll want to watch it again.

One thing and one thing only led me to watch "Expendables 3", and that was the belief that it couldn't possibly be as bad as the utterly execrable "Expendables 2". Happily this proved to be the case, and the third installment in the series is a vast improvement on its predecessor.
Stallone is back as mercenary Ross, leading his team of Statham, Lundren, Schwarzenegger and co. into action again, against a vicious and ruthless arms dealer (the unpleasant Mel Gibson). This time the crew is joined by some new faces to freshen things up a bit, with Wesley Snipes and Harrison Ford (amongst others) on board. Kelsey Grammer and Antonio Banderos also add some much needed light relief.
If utterly implausible but incredibly high octane action is your thing, "Expendables 3" delivers in spades, culminating in truly the mother of all shootouts. This film lacks even a trace of finesse, but this is more than compensated for by sheer spectacle. Buckle yourselves in for a roller coaster ride.

WORST FILM IN SERIES - I felt the first one and even 2 felt like a real old school star cast good action, ok stories but I felt exited about them. This goes down the toilet but lets talk about what I like first.
1). Wesley snipes and Harrison ford, Mel Gibson are excellent additions to cast all have the best acting in film, Mel Gibson as the bad guy is very interesting also Harrison Ford has that old school act underlined with a little humour, Wesley snipes character has a lot of funny moments one of the more complex characters due to past don't go to jail again I need Blade!.
2). Action especially the beginning is the overtop fun come to expect from this series.
3). More dry comedic Humour you can only get from having a cast of action heroes like this.

Now I don't like the new members or the next generation as they are bland unremarkable might as well just be cardboard cut outs only interesting one is the female as she has the most to contribute to the film would have been better to cast a few more memorable cast members not pandering to the teen audience.
Story is not epic enough all feels pointless only a few moments like the tags dangling of dead members bad guy dead to easy.
special effects are sometimes a little B movie that's fine but they even drop below this like one of those films on Syfy channel.
Overall the idea of these films to get the greatest action cast assembled put them against a great enemy with a touch of story over the top action feel epic becomes watered down with this instalment.

Worth the watch but don't expect the ride of your life if want that watch Guardians of the Galaxy the action in that is more gruesome.

Arnold returns loved him in his latest film cannot wait for Conan and Terminator
