Barney, Christmas and the rest of the team come face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks, 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.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure Thriller - Like the previous two films in the series, this is a violent action film starring many iconic action heroes from the '80s and '90s though this time out a number of younger stars have been added to the cast. Bruce Willis fans may be disappointed that he is not back for this installment, but fellow superstars Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, and Mel Gibson are added into the mix. While bearing a PG-13 rating and a lot less bloodshed than the last two films, the action is still very intense and of caution to parents of young kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good This series has run out of nostalgia to coast on, but what a final burnout it had.

USA Today Full Review
Poor 'Expendables 3' wastes its cast with aimless plot

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Good So let me just say that this latest rah-rah red-meat installment is the biggest and best surprise of the series. It has its flaws, but it's mostly a big, dumb, gruntingly monosyllabic hoot.

NY Post Full Review
Terrible Time to pull the plug on this brain-dead franchise.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 56 moviegoers:
WOW! I can't recall seeing "Professional" critic reviews that varied as much as these did. Two "Goods," a "Poor" and a "Terrible," show just how useless critic reviews can often be. Which critic are you supposed to believe? Moviegoers sided more with the "Good" critic reviews because most of them enjoyed "The Expendables 3" very much, with a large percentage indicating they loved it. Only 10% of the adult females and 20% of the adult males rated it as low as "good/average," which indicates a movie they enjoyed but didn't feel it was anything special or memorable. And equally important, especially considering the very low critic reviews, no moviegoer disliked "The Expendables 3."

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
An assignment to stop a powerful weapon from falling into the wrong hands ends in a shocking turn of events for Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) and his crack team of mercenaries, known as The Expendables. They discover that the ruthless arms dealer they are pursuing is none other than Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson)-Barney's former partner and Expendables' co-founder, and a man he thought he had killed more than a decade earlier.

After an explosive firefight, Stonebanks escapes unscathed, and veteran Expendable Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) is almost killed, forcing Barney to make a momentous decision. He retires his longtime crew and recruits a group of youthful hotshots (Kellan Lutz, Ronda Rousey, Glen Powell, and Victor Ortiz) to bring fresh energy and updated skills to the team.

The conflict turns personal when Max Drummer (Harrison Ford) of the CIA dispatches the new team to bring Stonebanks to justice and the wily weapons smuggler makes it his mission to destroy The Expendables-including his former partner. When the intricate operation goes awry and the new team is captured, Barney embarks on a no-holds-barred rescue effort, aided by his comrades-in-arms, Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Galgo (Antonio Banderas), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Doctor Death (Wesley Snipes), Gunner Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Trench Mauser (Arnold Schwarzenegger).
