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.
Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.
Frank Martin puts the driving gloves on to deliver Valentina, the kidnapped daughter of a Ukrainian government official, from Marseilles to Odessa on the Black Sea. En route, he has to contend with thugs who want to intercept Valentina's safe delivery and not let his personal feelings get in the way of his dangerous objective.
Ex-con Jensen Ames is forced by the warden of a notorious prison to compete in our post-industrial world's most popular sport: a car race in which inmates must brutalize and kill one another on the road to victory.
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
The helicopter of Conrad Stonebanks at the Somali port of Mogadishu is actually a Eurocopter AS565 Panther of the Bulgarian Air Force. Filming of the scene was done close to the 63rd Independent Maritime Helicopter Air Base at Varna, and the film crew used their aircraft. The green, red, and white roundel of the Bulgarian Air Force can be seen on the helicopter. See more »
The meet between Stonebanks and the buyer is supposedly set in Moscow, but the signs at the entrance are in Bulgarian. See more »
Arnie, Ford, Stallone, Statham, Snipes, Mel Gibson, Banderas and Kelsey Grammar (totally unexpected) - What more do you want on a big screen?
Movie starts off with a rescue of Snipes from a moving train - this one gives you back 50% of the money you paid for the movie.
This movie is all about watching some of your best actors on a big screen, kicking ass and having fun. This is a true 'man movie' in terms of wise cracks and the conversations between men.
Movie has couple of twists when Stallone sacks his old team to go with a new team, result of failed assignment etc. but the team reunites and helps Stallone in the end - this is for you to watch and I don't want to blow the covers here...
Movie not only presents some good action scenes, it packs good humor and I could hear the whole theater laughing out loud. I really like the exchange between Ford and Statham - Ford asking 'God Damn it, what type of a language is it?" (I guess the old American and English slang war i guess)
Buy yourself popcorn, nice drink, relax and enjoy.
