Plot Summary

In 'The Expendables 3,' Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team comes 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.

    The Expendables 3, trading on our affection for action stars of the past, has officially worn out its already shaky welcome. show more

    Really, The Expendables 3 has only one thing going for it, beyond the unremarkable novelty of seeing lots of celebrities in a lousy movie. It has Mel Gibson, who is at his grim, tormented and quirky best here, playing someone who has crossed a moral line and has no regrets. show more

    Fun action packed movie. Not great but good. Got a kick out of Tony Banderas character. Wesley Snipes has an inside joke for you In the beginning. Just as good as ever.

    I was pleasantly surprised by how good this movie was. I believe it to be the best of the three. The only reason I did not give it five stars? No Mickey Rourke.
