I never thought that going boom, boom, boom and bang would be so boring with these guys. It's your standard action flick but not at all memorable or worth mentioning when saying the names of such great action stars. If you want to see a good action flick starring any of these great action stars watch one of their old action flicks you may have. You will be bored with this.
It's the same the same thing as the last expendables movie good guys vs. bad guys, no plot what so ever but there was no fun to back that up. This time around they got Mel Gibson as the villain who was one of the expendables until presumed dead and I guess wants revenge.
You should not waste your time with this boring video game gun fest. Half the time I felt like I was cinematic for a video game. They even make a new expendables team which could of worked had everyone done a lot more in the end then what I expected. I mean you get all ten heroic badasses and only six of them are doing cool stuff. What mostly disappoints is that they were some of my favorites like Arnold, Ford, and Li. Which sucks.
Much like the first two has an awesome all star action cast, tons of explosions, but the problem is that it's two hours long and doesn't deliver the potential goods from everyone. I give The Expendables 3 a two out of five.
In a way, the inclusion of Banderas, Grammar, and Gibson was a mistake because their high quality of performances showed up just how bad the rest are. While Banderas was positioned primarily as a comedic chatty cathy, he managed to deliver a believably touching (and overlooked) performance with his few gems of serious background story. Gibson was far and away the BEST and most talented in EX3. What a waste of his talent. None of this seemed tongue in cheek for him and he blew everyone else out of the water when he was on screen. They should have killed off Barney and let STONEBANKS live - then an EX4 might have been worth watching.
A sequel with some great action and the welcome entry of Harrison Ford. However, it's thinly scripted story and underdeveloped characters stop this third in the trilogy from being as good as the second installment was. That being said, it's still a lot better than the original.
No Bruce Willis, Shame! Instead there was Harrison Ford.
Not A Fan!
This didn't make much sense as Expendables 2 but still had a good time with Expendables 3.
