Movie review : The Expendables 3
Barney augments his team with new blood for a personal battle: to take down Conrad Stonebanks, the Expendables co-founder and notorious arms trader who is hell bent on wiping out Barney and every single one of his associates.
- Good performance by the huge cast , especially Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham . Antonio Banderas also had a good performance providing the comic relief .
- Excellent action scenes .
- It was great to see Wesley Snipes in the movie , but his character didn’t really contribute much to the grand scheme of things .
- the movie was a bit predictable .
Conrad Stonebanks: Hey, Barney. You shoulda kill me when you had the chance.
Doc: I’m the knife before Christmas.
Expendables 3 was everything that we were promised , an over the top , testosterone filled ,action packed , joy ride . But having watched the first 2 films in the series , this one should have been a little less predictable . Dont get me wrong it was an awesome movie , but it lacked the “WOW” factor. I could easily see there being an Expendables 4 , even 5 . but the franchise needs to be shaken up a bit .
3 out of 5
