The tagline says ‘get ready for once last ride’. Do you promise? You’re not just teasing us like you were with Rocky and Rambo. Let this franchise go out on a high – a high of mediocrity. The Expendables movies are a much better idea than they are in execution. There’s just an odd vibe of direct-to-DVD about fading action stars teaming up. This time around the cast is 200% classier with the addition of Mel Gibson (the final indignity) and Harrison Ford (he wasn’t actually awake during filming). Sylvester Stallone leads a cast that includes Jet Li, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Antonio Banderas, Wesley Snipes and Kelsey Grammer… wait, why is he in it?
The Expendables III is released 14 August 2014 in the UK and 15 August 2014 in the US
