Sylvester Stallone is back with his crew of eighties action heroes to save the day. I found the first two films to be a little over the top but made for great entertainment.
As always with these films, the question tends to be,”So who has Stallone talked into this one?” Well the new boys this time around are Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Harrison Ford and Mel Gibson. Sylvester Stallone is also joined by series regulars Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Understandably there’s no Bruce Willis this time.
The Expendables 3 opens in the US and UK on 15th August.
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.
