I thought I might as well watch this after watching the second film in the series recently.
This was quite different to the first two films, Sylvester seems to have decided to drop most of the comedy and add more seriousness. He also dropped the exploding heads and blood-spurting explosions, although the body count was still high and cold-blooded in places.
He also called up as many Hollywood buddies as he could to join the film, as well as getting new blood for future films. Amongst others were Kelsey Grammer, Antonio Banderas (who was quite funny at times, annoying others), Wesley Snipes, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, and Jet Li. Jason Statham and Arnie were also in it, but some of the actors from the previous films were missing, not even Bruce Willis was in this one.
Not as much dumb-action fun as the other films.
And I just read that Expendables 4 will start filming next year.
Date watched: December 22nd
Dumb-action score: 5/10
Film count 2015: 163 (equalled last year)
