THE EXPENDABLES 3 (Theatrical Release USA 2014)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

The Expendables 3—much, much better than the first two films in this series—capitalizes on the action and adventure that we expect from these actors. It’s a down-to-business, realistic action movie with a great storyline…all around notable. Antonio Banderas is a welcome addition, balances the movie, and contributes well to the story. He does the ‘hotshot’ personality well. Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, and Kellan Lutz are new cast members that create this terrific mix that just works. The female interest Ronda Rousey adds pepper to the mix. All together made an intense piece of entertainment. Worth its watch.

? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. Director Patrick Hughes pulls this movie into a solid 4-star rating by means of mixing up and balancing the cast. The movie is more than worth a watch and will satisfy all action movie fans. No apologies here. It’s action-packed. Don’t pass on it.
