Being huge Stallone fans, we were quite excited for his career resurrection from the past years but it seems that he wasnt able to maintain that fire in his last few releases.
The Expendables 2 was quite the dissapointed as it seems like an Adam Sandler movie minus the holiday destination, where actors are just “bro-ing” out where the first one put in quite a bit of effort in giving every actor a chance to shine as well as at least having a coherent screenplay (kinda).
The 3 (and what seems to be the final part) of the Expendables franchises adds more actors from a bygone era ( WEsley Snipes, Kelsey Grammar, Mel Gibson) with a new director Patrick Hughes (who is also slated to direct The Raid remake).
Starring: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Mel Gibson, Dolph Lundgren, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kellan Lutz, Antonio Banderas and Kelsey Grammer
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, out in cinemas on August 14th 2014
