The Expendables 3 (2014) – A Quick Capsule Review (Revisited)
Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
I’ve not been the biggest fan of the Expendables films. The first had a great concept but fell short and the second, whilst fun, was pretty forgettable. So it really was with limited expectations that I arrived at Expendables 3. And you know what? Not only is it the best of the three films, it’s also one of the better films of 2014. Fun, funny (with some amazing one liners and call backs to classic action films from the cast) with top notch action scenes and a cast at the top of their game (not least a resurgent Mel Gibson & Wesley Snipes). In short: Great fun.
Best Bit: The finale
