Barney Ross brings in new blood to fight an old associate.
Movie Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes®
" "The Expendables 3" gets the franchise back on track. "
" At this point, the Expendables have formed and reformed so many times they're like the world's most macho wife swap, the action version of Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice. "
" Sometimes there really is no substitute for age and experience. "
" "The Expendables 3" lets down its cast with a film that's about as thrilling as the arrival of a monthly Social Security check. "
" "The Expendables" series deserves a movie as muscular as its stars. For now, "The Expendables 3" isn't it. "
" A kind of ho-hum experience, wherein a lot of bullets are expended and a lot of structures exploded to minimal dramatic effect. "
" A slightly breezier and dependably brainless installment of Stallone's action franchise. "
" A wasted opportunity. "
" Banderas does some of his most charming work since his turn as the Nasonex Bee "
" For a variety of reasons, most having to do with a weak screenplay and poor pacing, The Expendables 3 is the least successful entry in the series. "
" It's all a bit like a classic-rock tribute concert, or playing with all your action figures at once, or maybe "Cannonball Run," with the strained buddy-buddy back-and-forth. "
" Proof that sometimes even your low expectations can be far too high. "
" So much star power packed together in one place hasn't produced such a cheesy result since the recording of "We Are the World." "
" The Expendables 3, trading on our affection for action stars of the past, has officially worn out its already shaky welcome. "
" The film's sporadic set pieces simply aren't captivating enough to forgive all the movie's other faults. "
" The series did reignite a few careers and bring forth one decent popcorn movie (The Expendables 2). Rather than artificially extend its life, maybe the time has come to say Rest in Peace. "
" The third installment in Sylvester Stallone's jobs program for expired action heroes is easily the best of the bunch, which is not to say it's any good. "
" This Sylvester Stallone franchise has devolved into the clown car of action movies: a casting gimmick to see how many AARP actors you can cram into one vehicle. "
" Those first two movies look like Seven Samurai next to The Expendables 3, a sad, bad, parade of uninspired cameos and listless violence. "
" There's no harmonica-flavored faux-Morricone score, no cutesy references; this isn't an homage, but a director putting an outmoded genre style to work in a brisk, violent frontier flick. "
