Movie Review: Expendables III ****

moive expendables 3Expendables 3 is the latest Sylvester Stallone action movie. Many of the previous Expendable characters have fallen, so when the latest mission is offered, it is thought that the remaining Expendables should be replaced by a younger group of mercenaries. They take on the mission, get captured, and are used as bate to attract the old Expendables for a fatal showdown.

Stallone, Dolf Lundgren, Terry Crews, Jason Statham, and Mel Gibson are awesome in their reprise roles. Wesley Snipes and Antonio Banderas look great in these new roles and may be my favorite characters in the movie. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Harrison Ford, and Jet Li are looking pretty old. The newcomers are people I don’t know, but I really liked. The story and its conclusion are very predictable. The action is heavy on the front end and the back end. The middle is a little slow, but takes the time to introduce all of the new, young characters. It would help to have seen the previous Expendable movies to keep up with this one. I am a fan of this type of action movie and loved the first 2 Expendables, so my bias gives it 4 out of 5 stars.
