THE EXPENDABLES 3 – My rating 8.5/10

Expendables3This was the best Expendable movie yet.  Director, Patrick Hughes managed to spring surprise after surprise after surprise. I especially liked the twist and turns in the story.  Some of the lines were hilarious and as usual we are taken on a real thrill ride.  The movie opens with the Expendable team rescuing an old friend (Surprise #1).  The team then goes on another mission before returning home.  After one of the team members gets shot pretty badly, Sylvester Stallone realizes how worn and torn the team has become, so he fires the current team (Jason Statham, Randy Couture, Dolph Lundgren and Terry Crews) and goes in search for a new team.  Another old friend (surprise #2) supplies Stallone with a selection  of candidates ready to do what’s needed to get the job done.  Some were accepted and some were not.  One rejected candidate goes out of his way to prove he belongs on the team (surprise #3) and is finally accepted.  After completing the new team, they embark on their new mission, authorized by (surprise #4).  Finally they are face to face with the enemy (surprise #5).   This is where the movie takes a twist, which I will not elaborate on because it’s a huge spoiler.  The end offers more surprises.  All in all the team is looking old and touched up but hey, we’re all getting old.  I think Expendables 3 is a good, solid movie worth seeing.  It is worth whatever they’re charging for a movie ticket these days.  Check it out, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
