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....

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.
