Storyline

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. Written by ahmetkozan

Goofs

In the battle at the port of Mogadishu you can see Ceaser and Gunner watching what is happening from a boat. At that point Ceaser has a belt of bullets for the minigun over his left shoulder. When he says "Time to mow the lawn." the belt is not on his shoulder any more but it is connected to the minigun when he picks it up. As he fires the minigun the belt of bullets is back on his left shoulder but it is not moving even though he is firing the weapon. When he finishes firing the weapon the belt is not on his left shoulder any more. See more »

Great popcorn flick
5 August 2014 | by hawkfrend-875-968087See all my reviews

I read a lot of bad reviews about this film, attacks on the script, plot and direction, so I was pleasantly surprised to find they were all wrong and they totally missed the point. I think these people were expecting Oscar winning performances but this film is about watching bad guys getting their a*s kicked. I also read that the actors seems withdrawn and bored of their roles and that is utter rubbish, and even if that were true it doesn't matter, im not interested in deep characters and meaningful performances in films like this, I just want to see lots of destruction and the bad guys getting owned.

There's some funny dialogue here and there and Banderas' character had me smiling a lot.

If you like action films you will enjoy this action romp, so ignore those bad reviews and grab yourself a bucket of popcorn and enjoy.
