This is the third installment of geriatric warriors against evil. It opens with an amped up body count, explosions and chases. This movie is a bit more reflective, as they reflect that they are past their prime, losing too many and need to assemble a new team. So Stallone jettisons his old comrades and seeks out new ones, not wishing to risk the lives of his team any more. The row of dog tags that are in the plane, and represent lost members weighs on him. It turns out a terrorist who was thought to be dead wasn’t, and the story centers on getting him. They manage to capture him, but in too much of a cliche, Stonebanks (Gibson) spends time talking, which of course is a plot point that means it won’t end well. So assembling his new team, Stallone goes after Stonebanks. And naturally, his old teammates will not abandon him. There is less comedy in this movie compared to the two prior ones, but the Galgo character (Banderas) does provide good comic relief. The last act is a way over the top body count, explosions, fires, and theatrics. To say it is excessive is an understatement. If this is meant to be the last chapter, fine. If there is to be a fourth, then many of them will probably be using mobility scooters. But watching a nice collection of noted movie actors all assembled in an over the top drama, reprising their roles and seeming to have a lot of fun doing it is all right.

5.0 out of 5 starsNewsFlash - Expendables movies are supposed to be cheesy exploding fun.
Verified purchase
The Expendables movies are supposed to be cheesy throw-backs to the old action movies. In this they succeed very well. Not much face time as expected for the old crew, which was disappointing because Terry Crews is flat out fun to watch and Dolph makes an awesome grumpy big guy. That's what I enjoyed about the first two movies, the larger than life actors I remember from my youth and the "catch phrases" that came with the action movies.

They aren't suppose to be believable and the dialogue is tongue-in-cheek. Which is why the movies are fun.

Best lines of the movie:
Wesley Snipes' response to why he was locked up "tax evasion", said with an psychotic grin.
Stallone's answer to Statham's query about "what was that?" during the first skirmish. "A large black man in a boat".
although there were lots of others that made me chuckle.

Mel Gibson still has the best "crazy eyes" in the business, evoking Lethal Weapon memories. He's not as fun to watch as Van Damme was, but pretty darn close.

3.0 out of 5 starsMuch better than Expendables 2
Verified purchase
Expendables 2 was a real dud just remaking the first film. In true Hollywood fashion that didn’t stop them from making a third one. The idea was to add more action stars and more explosions. This time Wesley Snipes, Ronda Rousey and Antonio Banderas join the crew while Mel Gibson plays the bad guy with guest appearances by Arnold Schwarzenegger, Harrison Ford, and Kelsey Grammer.

The movie begins with a giant battle scene to rescue Snipes from a foreign prison and then some comedy which is well done. Afterward they ask Snipes why he was locked up and he says tax evasion which is what really happened to him. The jokes continue throughout which showed they didn’t take the movie that seriously.

The story is simple. Gibson is a bad guy the Expendables have history with and they take him down.

Expendables 2 was a poor attempt at a sequel. This one was better.

Look at the roles of the "youngsters" closely. They were outstanding . They worked with the best of the best and didn't flinch. They deserved kudos and more recognition . Wesley Snipes should have been in all 3 movies. As always he shined. You can't begin to try and critique all the original cast members. They are always a pleasure to watch. This movie has a lot of snarky comments thrown in as comedy. If you need a laugh this is the one to go too. It's not Shakespeare, it's not meant to be Shakespeare . It's worth a watch if you want a kick back , in your face funny, show off movie. I loved it! Lol Gibson couldn't play a straight role if it would save him. He says more with facial expressions than others do with words. I almost fainted Stratham actually smiled it was purrrrrty. I however always fall for the big blond grouchy guy.

5.0 out of 5 starsA Fun Action Film with Some of the Best Names Out There
Verified purchase
Expendables 3 is a romp through fun. Nobody ever claimed this franchise was for the Mensa folks although I don't see why they wouldn't like it too.

Barney (Sylvester Stallone) is in an op with his team when they see Stonebanks (Mel Gibson) another finding member of the Expendables. Stonebanks had gone rogue and was eventually thought to be dead.

Bonaparte (Kelsey Grammer) tells Barney be will need a younger crew to get Stonebanks. Barney selects a crew of new, up and coming, recruits/wannabes. When the youngsters get themselves captured attempting to capture Stonebanks, the older crew activates to get there kids and Stonebanks.

It's not a movie you'll remember vividly the next day nor is it going to leave you wondering why loose ends haven't been cleaned up. When the movie is over the only thing it leaves room for is Expendables IV.

5.0 out of 5 starsI guess I love cheesy lines
Verified purchase
Not once in my life have I been able to sit through an action movie and say "WOW how unpredictable!" so... I knew what I was getting myself into ( I mean if the wrinkles on each one of the iconic stars on this movie don't give you rehash vibes, IDK what will) but I didn't really pressed play to see something new, different... some smart comedic film. Nope. I was here for all the lines I knew they were going to pull up from all of their old movies, all the cliche takes, like the one with Ford doing reenacting airforce! I mean even the ending was the biggest cliche in action movies... but a millennial icon was performing so it was awesome! Is like watching a medley of every movie they performed. Too bad they didn't paired Jet Lee & Jason Statham.. maybe include a catty combo in between them lol. IDK what those giving it 3 stars and below expected. The only thing I didn't like, but expect of Hollywood is that Banderas had a dumb cartoonish role wayy too close to resembling the squirrel "Scrat" from Ice age. His Desperado role could've been further exploited past his "This is the best day of my life" line. I mean if he was going to have the token dumb dumb role at least let him be the one that comes out of the blue with the most gun playtime or w. some crazy knife he had under his shoe (that would've been just as ridiculous as the role he was given.) But I guess we Latinos should be proud that they didn't make him a rapist or janitor ...

5.0 out of 5 starsBetter Than The Previous Sequels

I actually liked this version better than the two previous sequels. I was surprised that Mel Gibson and Harrison Ford were part of this production and I am glad they made Mr. Gibson the bad guy.

The plot, uncomplicated, easy to follow, goal oriented, it gave each character a purpose for being their, except one exception and that is Antonio Banderas, I know he is was playing the comedy relief, but he was not funny, I found him to be just annoying.

I would tell my friends and family about this movie. It is definitely a guys movie. All that action, explosions, violence, tanks, guns, helicopters, rockets, RPG, and c4. What more could you ask for.

Yes, I know we mustn't forget Ronda Jean Rousey, not only does she add sex appeal but she represents strong women who know how to kick ass; oh, by they way, wow, she actually knows how to act, I am impressed; some people take to acting like breathing, it is second nature for her.

come the f on. this is awesome. lots of eye acting going on here. look this way, look that way, a twitch. good stuff. it could almost be a drinking game, and it is!!! explosions. grunts. jumping. running. guns (in arm muscles, pecs, and actual). and there is a lady robot who kills! I mean, how else can a lady take down a giant orangutan of a human? and don't give me some sort of physics equation as women should not be killing machines but barefoot and pregnant and subservient to men. not this lady robot. she kicks ass the first moment we see her, and while wearing a high skit and even higher high heels. on the next movie, I want to see someone do the Flying Dutchman, like they did in "death proof", but on the nose of the plane at 20k feet with some sort of kamikaze fighter bumping metal with it. "fly!!!!!" . but enough about me. how are you doing?
