Movie review : The Expendables 3

By  | 

expendables

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.

PROS

  • 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 .

CONS

  • 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 .

FAVORITE QUOTES

Conrad Stonebanks: Hey, Barney. You shoulda kill me when you had the chance.

Doc: I’m the knife before Christmas.

CONCLUSION 

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 .
