    Synopsis


    The Expendables 3
    Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) and his band of aging mercenaries recruit a younger crew to battle the one man capable of exterminating the Expendables in this sequel directed by Red Hill's Patrick Hughes. When Barney and Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson) co-founded the Expendables, they were positively unstoppable. Years later, Stonebanks abandoned the team to become a cutthroat arms dealer, and Barney was forced to kill the man he once called a brother. Little did Barney realize that Stonebanks survived, and has been biding his time for revenge ever since. Now the war has begun. Stonebanks is out for blood, and the only way Barney can defeat him is with the help of some tech-savvy new recruits. With Lee Christmas (Jason Statham) and the regular crew backed up by some fresh faces who value brains over brawn, the final battle begins. Wesley Snipes, Harrison Ford, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ronda Rousey, Kellan Lutz, Victor Ortiz, and Kelsey Grammer co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      The weakest one, but still fun...

      The first two Expendables films were retro-80s cheesy goodness with some 80's stars (Stallone, Lundgren, etc) with mostly newer stars (Crews, Stathan, etc.) and even a few sports stars (Couture, Austin) with some good R-rated bliss, but this film killed it with the PG-13 rating and the overreliance on younger actors.I know to they cast them to A.) Pass it on to a new generation and B.) earn a younger audience in tandem of the PG-13 rating, but these films were for those who love action, grew up or loves 80s cinema and hard R's not the tweenage crowd. Of course it does have some really good action, has a big budget feel (Although I wish it was shot on film...) and has the best villain yet, in Mel Gibson's Stonebanks. Wow, just what a comeback film, but other than that, a fun rental. Of course the BluRay is excellent with a Dolby Atmos track (7.1 core so you can still get a terrific soundtrack on older equipment) that is demo worthy, sharp picture and some decent extras. There is a nearly one-hour making-of, some featurettes, an extended scene, a gag reel and most importantly an Unrated cut. Compared to previous discs, this is a rather lackluster package (where's the commentary?) but with great picture and sound, and some decent extras, along with the DVD (Theatrical only with this set and on its own) and the digital copy, its a must own, if mainly to show off your setup.

      A retro blast from the 80s and 90s.

      This is not "Great Cinema"; but, it is a lot of fun. It is filled with gratuitous violence, and stunts that are unbelievable; but, could happen. Sly Stallone got together a great cast of action movie actors, and, a decent story about an arms dealer(played be Mel Gibson) who will sell to anyone. Gibson plays the guy who started the Expendables; then went his own way. The Expendables now have to stop or kill him. That is the basic story. Along the way, they blow up armored train, a prison, and an abandoned hotel(and, great explosions they are!). The "The Expendables" series are a throwback to the action movies of the 80s & 90s; and, include a lot of the actors who made them. It is clear that they are having fun making the movies; and, making fun of themselves; when Wesley Snipes' character is freed; the others ask why he was in prison. His answer is: "Tax evasion(a reference to his recent conviction)". I could go on; but, it could turn boring. Again, this is a fun movie; the actors had fun making it; and, it doesn't have any pretentions of being otherwise. On a more technical note, the Blu-ray is one of the first, if not the first, to use the new Dolby Atmos sound format. I don't have a Dolby Atmos capable receiver; but, it was handled as Dolby TruHD 7.1 by my system. I imagine that it will sound impressive when I finally upgrade to it.

      I've been following The Expendables films from the start and as much as I enjoyed the first film, I felt that Expendables 2 was a bit of a disappointment. Yeah, it had the big guns, big 'splosions, big cast full of big name stars, but it didn't have the same punch as the first film. So needless to say, I entered the theater with some trepidation whilst clutching my ticket for Expendables 3. Would I get more of the same or would it lean more towards what made the first one so good? Well, I can honestly say that I walked out happy. First off, the whole gang was there except for Tool (Mickey Rourke) and Mr. Church (Bruce Willis). Scheduling issues perhaps? We are also treated to a few new characters protrayed by Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, and Kelsey Grammer. All of them are fun to watch but the best of these newcomers is Stonebanks, played by Mel Gibson. When Mel's on screen he steals the scene. As the antagonist in the film he's fantastic. Plays it to the hilt and never lets up. If you liked him as a good guy in the Lethal Weapon films, you'll love him as a bad guy here. And if you enjoyed the first Expendables and were disheartened by the second, here's the redemption. "Bring it, happy feet."

      Fun addition to the franchise but could be better

      The BR contains a DVD copy of the theatrical version and a so-called "extened" version. There was little difference from the extended version and the theatrical version. Any differences were not apparent. The extras were fun and informative. The BR quality was fine. The BR also comes with a digital download - always a nice bonus. I, like most fans, didn't care too much for the PG-13 rating. The movie might've lost its edge by trying to capture a larger audience with a PG-13 rating. Hopefully, the fourth installment will have an R-rating so it can return to the fun over-the-top violence of the first two movies. This is rather nit-picky but I was hoping Harrison Ford would quote Han Solo during the helicopter dog fight in the end. A simple "Don't get cocky, kid" to Arnold or Jet would've been funny. I would still recommend this movie to add to one's action movie collection especially if you are a fan of The Expendables franchise. I purchased the movie when it was on sale and saved an additional $5.00 thanks to the Reward Certificate I had with me that day. That's always nice.

      Barney and his mercenaries go up against one of their own. The Expendables suffer a casualty during a mission in the opening. Even worse was the fact that it was caused by one of the founding members of The Expendables played devilishly by Mel Gibson. Not wanting to put any of the current assemble at further risk. Barney decides to recruit mostly younger members to take down the former member. Aside from the returning cast the line-up also included veteran action heroes, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Antonio Banderas, and making his return to the cinema after his stint in prison, Wesley Snipes . The young cast consists of mostly newcomers with the only exception being the first female Expendable played by Rhonda Rousey. Any fan of classic action films and the series will definitely appreciate and enjoy this movie.

      ALL ABOUT THE "R"

      Although I have thoroughly enjoyed Sylvester Stallone's EXPENDABLES film series, I thought the move away from an R-rated format to the PG-13 rating format to be a mistake. One would assume that these films are made to not only showcase the stars of past action film series, but some of today's hottest new action stars, but part of the appeal for fans is over-the-top action, violence, and yes, sometimes gore. Stallone himself has admitted in so many words that going for the safer PG-13 rating was a mistake, and that should an EXP4 be in the cards, he would return to the R rating. Regardless, THE EXPENDABLES 3 was an enjoyable action romp for me, especially with the addition of a meatier role for Schwarzenegger, and the introduction of Antonio Banderas' manic mercenary, "Galgo"... he made the movie for me. What's next Sly?!

      Nostalgic Reunion - 'blowin up the bad guys'!

      Already having the first two "offerings", and seeing the huge cast of so many of my favorite "Action" stars, from past, I could not pass up one more opportunity to see these guys - Stallone, alone, having more wrinkles in his face than the rest combined - combine forces, and pick up a few "newcomers" along the way, and once again in seemingly non-stop explosive scenes, "bring down" - literally - the house (Casino) on top of this offering's resident "bad guy" - Mel Gibson. It was not over-the-top, like the storyline - and actions - of "Rambo" (in, hopefully the last in that series - the cow is dry); it was quite entertaining; just more believable and good to see the "good guys" triumph over evil - again!

      When you buy the Blu-Ray combo pack of this movie, don't throw away the Digital Copy voucher because there are 2 separate Digital Copy+DigitalHD codes on that voucher. One is for the PG-13 version of the HD and SD iTunes Digital Copy and PG-13 version of the DigitalHD UltraViolet version of this movie and one is for the Unrated Extended Cut version of the HD and SD iTunes Digital Copy and Unrated version of the DigitalHD UltraViolet version of this movie. This is a great final chapter to the Expendables saga for being "watered down" and most of the original cast is back including acting legend Schwarzenegger, so if you like action movies you will like seeing both the PG-13 version and the Unrated version of this movie.
