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. 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.

From the moment I saw the trailer for Expendables 3 I had a feeling it would slightly disappoint and it does in some ways.I enjoyed the first one and the second one is my favourite but this third instalment falls just a bit short for me.There are some very good moments like the opening two action sequences and the final huge action scene,Mel Gibson is great as the bad guy and Wesley Snipes is a welcome addition to the series.The main problem is,there are just too many characters and not enough time is given to any of them apart from Stallone who is in almost every scene,so many actors here are underused like Schwarzenegger,Harrison Ford,Dolph Lungdren and Jason Statham do not get enough screen time,instead we get Stallone (Barney Ross) putting together a new and younger team and it just does not work and we then get far less of the characters we do want to see.Expendables 3 could and should have been so much better,with such a big cast you expect great things but never quite happens.All that said though,it is worth a watch and there are some very good moments and plenty of fun to be had but it just does not live up to the first two films.If you want a good fun action movie,then this is for you.Could have been better but still enjoyable.

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.

The Expendables are aimed at grown men who love old action heroes and films from the 80s, and good gory practical 18 cert action.
This third Expendables aims towards teenagers and removes every element that made the first two so enjoyable.
The violence is gone. The blood is gone. The bad language is gone. 90% of the cast are reduced to cameos and replaced by four young nobodies. The film is also dripping with awful CGI from the opening scene to the final battle.
I LOVED the first two. More than I should have, but this film deserved its poor box office and awful reputation.
Its impossible to care about, and never has so much action been so boring. Mel Gibson is pretty good in it though. I'm a big Stallone fan and have to say, this could be his worse performance by a considerable margin. He didn't even phone it in, he text it in.
Now, I can get past the 12A rating and younger cast if it was a GOOD film. It is not a good film in any way WHATSOEVER.
An awful film is every aspect and its misleading that Jet Li's name appears so high in the cast list. His screen time is approx 3 minutes.

Well here we go again another movie with the same old faces. What is wrong with this film, well firstly they did it better in the first two films, secondly you rarely see the main stars, they must have just been given the paycheck then gone on holiday with their pay. The newbies are okay but they are given way over the top roles to play, in one scene a motorbike on a self made ramp made out of concrete then jumping off the bike in mid air to land safely whilst being shot at.
This has been done a whole of a lot better in other films, don't get me wrong i am a fan of the first two films but now it is time to call it a day, the acting was quite bad, the action to way over the top, the main actors you all want to see have cameos.
Go and see another film you will be glad you did.

After seeing all the negative reviews on here my expectations were lowered a great deal, however sure enough Stallone and the gang (with a few new additions) did it again, but this time a hell of a lot better. Seriously ignore every negative review out there. You will love this movie, sure all the blood and gore is taken out of this one but it doesn't take anything away in terms of how good the movie is. Anyway, this movie has a much better story than the previous two movies and has much better character development and even the characters we are only introduced to in this movie are still very likable and by the end of the movie it feels like they've been there all along; in particular, Galgo played (very well) by Antonio Banderas who is very funny and fits into the expendables perfectly and also there is Drummer played by Harrison Ford who is much better in the CIA role than Bruce Willis was, and finally Doctor Death played by Wesley Snipes. But of all the characters the most memorable was definitely Conrad Stonebanks played extremely well by Mel Gibson. There was great chemistry between all the actors involved allowing the movie to flow better. Additionally, the addition of 4 new young actors (which i was unsure about at first) worked very well in the movie because at first you think they are just going to take over (which i didn't like) when Barney retires his old team for these young-lings, but it was handled well as they were kidnapped and the old expendables were pulled in again at the end to rescue them. Also even though i had no idea who any of the younger actors were, i still liked them and they fit in well. The action is also very good, over the top but very good. There were a few bits of bad cgi at the start but it didn't ruin the movie.Read more ›
