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.

Having seen and enjoyed both Expendables movies this one disappointed me with its 12A rating. I still saw the movie and the action scenes were still impressive enough for me to enjoy but the bloodless gunshots and stab wounds made it just that little less enjoyable compared to the previous two. Call me a sicko if you wish but when I see someone getting shot with a 50 cal I expect to see some bits come off. Aside from the lack of blood the action scenes are still really cool to watch and the hand to hand combat is brilliant. Story wise, this is one of the better of the 3 movies. In short, with no spoilers, Barney Ross goes a mission to stop a terrorist and the terrorist turns out to be one the founding members of the Expendables Barney thought was dead. Go for a revenge/ rescue mission where hundreds of people die. The old crew don't have alot to do when Barney dumps them for a new crew none of which are memorable or interesting and Ronda Rousey is particularly cringe worthy to watch. So its nice and welcome when they get shoved aside for the old guys again. The only new character who's worth watching is Antonio Banderas who proves once again that it doesn't matter what he does he's brilliant. Overall the movie is worth a watch but its not as good as the other two.

As for the extended version well it adds virtually nothing of interest. A few extended fight scenes toward the end that are just as bloodless as the original version so I don't see why they bumped up the rating, I feel like its more a marketing thing since the 12A rating killed the movie at the cinema. I can't help but think they should have added more blood effects before the release on Blu Ray.

Like I said the movie is still good, its action scenes are fun and well executed even if the special effects are really ropey at times. It's a movie that knows what it wants to be and how to go about being it.

Format: DVD
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.

Having seen the first two (both of which i loved) this one for me was looking to keep that trend going. i was hoping it wasn't a let down like in other movie franchises where two out 3 were good but the third was just rubbish (like the godfather trilogy - everyone i know says 1 & 2 are the best the third is just rubbish).so i never saw this in the cinema i just bought it on DVD and i was blown away by how good it was it had the usual elements of the first two films impossible rescue missions, unlimited ammo and huge explosions.

I was also surprised by the "new team" thought they added something to the movie now just another load of actors filing up space in the movie. this did have the feel of could do better of few times for me though like one point a RPG (rocket propelled grenade) is fired and lands feet from Stallone's character yet doesn't kill or injure him. he does fall of a bridge into a river but again survives despite hitting his head on several rocks as he's rushed downstream in the river. yet next scene he's made it he was washed up on low bank only to be found by Mel Gibson's hench men. where he pulls out a gun (which has been in water) and just shoots 5 people. this is good for the film as i did like it but in real life he wouldn't have made it off the bridge with the RPG hitting so close to him.

the scene where Caeser gets injured is puzzling to me as well when he gets shot the bullet wounds look like hit his leg and hip yet the next scene it's his chest. i might be wrong but it did look like he was hit elsewhere on his body.

All in all a enjoyable film for people who enjoy the Unlimited ammo & explosions shoot um up's. I hope there's a fourth on the way.
