The Expendables 3

This movie was a huge let down after the first two.  It was full of over the top action and I mean – over the top!!  Most of the movie was one explosion after another and total unreal stunts that were predictable but yet not needed!  You know who the Expendables are and what they do but yet they forgot to bring the fun to it like the first two had.  New characters were introduced but they all seemed out of place including Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Harrison Ford and Kelsey Grammer.  Not to mention a few of the “new” comers, (Victor Ortiz, Kellan Lutz and Ronda Rousey), which was the point of the story.  Stallone thinks his team is getting too old so he fires them and hires a batch of “young” kids to be his new team.  Well of course, they get their butts kicked and held hostage and the “old” guys have to come and save the day.  What I did like about it was Mel Gibson – he played the bad guy in this film and he was great!  He had a little bit of Mad Max and Riggs character from the Lethal Weapon movies in him.  When Gibson and Stallone went toe to toe - it was fun to watch.  I wish they would have stuck to the magic that was the first one but I guess – all good things must come to an end and in this case – the biggest over the top end there ever was!
