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 Expendablesâ most personal battle yet. Starring the Ultimate Action Cast: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Kellan Lutz, Kelsey Grammer, MMA star Ronda Rousey, welterweight boxing champion Victor Ortiz, and Glen Powell.

Stallone has since admitted that making this a 12 rating was a huge mistake and cost the production a lot in lost revenue... why is that? simple... with all this killing and violence, and couple of swear words, there's no way on earth that it should be anything less than a 15 rating, probably an 18 rating... to maximise the earning potential.... you don't do that by down grading the rating... because a 12 rating means a kids film - not an adult film....

Before release, when I heard there would be all those 'extra' action heroes I thought this is going to be overkill - too many cooks spoil the broth kind of thing - that is countered by longer running time from the 2nd movie, we get to see just enough of each one to know what they are doing there.... and they seem to fit together.... is it still too much? maybe? after all quality should always win any debate between quality and quantity....

The action and fighting scenes are just as good as the second movie, but there's a huge 'downtime' in the middle section of this one, where he dumps the old team and tries to build a new one, and we don't see the old crew for a good 30 mins or so... which gives it a strange feeling... there is humour and banter as well, like there always needs to be, but because this is a 12 rating, everything seems too humane and a bit too friendly, the evil intention or the adult elements are therefore watered down.... which inevitably means this was never going to be as good as the 2nd movie...and alas it's not.... the other thing is that the original team don't evolve - their own stroies hasn't moved on from the first movie, we don't get to see any of their lives etc... there's too much focus on the new team... and Antonio Banderas' character is just annoying....

This movie is better then the first Expendables, but not quite as good as Expendables 2. The Format is very simple. Big shoot out battle, couple of minutes to meet new/old characters, followed by a big shoot out battle.

The story after rescuing an old school member of the Expendables, well an older school member as Jason is the youngers member on the team at that point. The team is sent after a ghost from Stallone's past. Knowing a suicide mission is coming Stallone decides to go at it with a new team of young blood who he has no emotional investment in.

The movie is a shoot em up action fest, the lack of gore keeps the age rating down. It was really the last battle/30 minutes of the movie that brought this up from a watchable 3 stars to 4 stars for me. I am really glad Ronda Rousey, got the air time to prove why she is (really) the most dominant woman fighter on the planet she even managed to use her signature finish in one scene, unfortunately Ortiz did not get the same opportunity he seemed quite forgettable. Banderas was supposed to be the comic relief, but he came off more annoying and cheesy than funny. All in all the movie is what I expected an 80's style action fest with a bit of new blood and tricks.

The Expendables are a fast action full on anything goes but I think it needs to be updated with younger actors that would suit the roles better. No offense meant guys but your ages are starting to show and bodies are starting to show they need repairing. I have a hell of a lot of movies with these guys but there comes a time when it starts to change our opinion and I would rather remember them as they where than not now showing their age. I will still buy movies regardless comedy drama and family because they can still give a performance and deliver. I rated this an A grade as the cast did a fantastic job and the storyline is great. Story unfolds that the old enemy is still among us and living so the old blood is being replaced with young blood to tackle the problem with high tech expertise. Action is there suspense and the high dives of excitement so what are you waiting for the encore, sorry that's it for now, need I say anymore the collecting of the show and popcorn will come in handy for a relaxing night in with fabulous entertainment that is waiting for you with Stallone, Statham and the rest of them ready to keep you amused tonight. Enjoy!

This is the film I've been waiting my whole life for! - or at least for as long as it's been on my LOVEFiLM rental list - which is three days. It arrived today, which is nice as it only came out yesterday. Sadly the rental only copy is the cinema version (I refuse to call it the theatrical version, because of course, it is a film, and not a play) and not the much heralded slightly rougher version (I won't call it unrated, because it has a rating - '15', the same rating it had in the cinema)
Er, it's alright, I suppose.

First Expendables terrific, Second Expendables Possibly the most disappointing follow up in recent movie history, just awful. Expendables 3 terrific, it is that simple, if I had to pick one fault it could have done with a little, and I mean a little, more blood on show. Not because I am a gore hound but it would have given the film slightly more of an edge. Otherwise the action was rock solid. anyone who does not like the film, fine, but to pick the second film over this is beyond me.
