In THE EXPENDABLES 3, Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team come 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.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Amy Nicholson, L.A. Weekly
"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."
‑ Michael Sragow, Orange County Register
"After the two earlier movies were rated 18 and then 15, many will decry the lack of blood in the new 12A, but the actors seem to be enjoying their pensioners' paintball party complete with helicopter funships."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Mail
"A particularly flavorless serving of flaccid beef jerky and brine-cured ham."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"Gibson is one of the lone bright spots, and I kind of hate that I'm saying that."
‑ Pete Vonder Haar, Houston Press
"A wasted opportunity."
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard
"The Expendables 3, trading on our affection for action stars of the past, has officially worn out its already shaky welcome."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"There are no surprises to be found here. The Expendables 3 is exactly what you'd think it is-a disappointing mish-mash of a throwback, trading in on its star power, with its eye safely fixed on producing more sequels"
‑ Eric Melin,
"As the stars get younger and the action gets tamer, Expendables comes to resemble more and more of its direct-to-video kin, and worth about as much of your time."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"The characters in the film are somewhat engaging, but the action scenes are almost as incomprehensible as the plot."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"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."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Those first two movies look like Seven Samurai next to The Expendables 3, a sad, bad, parade of uninspired cameos and listless violence."
‑ Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture
"An A-team of B-stars in a vanity project on steroids. The grand finale has all the air of the old boys' club on a giant playground that's just there to be shot up and fought in and tank-rolled over and bazooka-ed and blown up and 'copter-escaped from."
‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
" almost hopelessly erratic entry in this seemingly unstoppable franchise."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Tired franchise - filled with punishing car chases and repetitive gunfire."
‑ Susan Granger, SSG Syndicate
