Richard Mille RM 032 Sylvester Stallone EXPENDABLES 3

Poses for the camera.


Mel Gibson playing an extremely convincing madman.


And the only time these characters all appear together (which I don’t even think they could all make it to this photo-shoot).

Here it is though… Badass


There you have it.  The Expendables 3 is filled with old dudes (and one woman (Ronda Rousy)), one liners that wouldn’t have worked in the 80’s, characters you really want to see making glorified cameos, explosions, mowing down “bad guys” with machine guns, saving people, kicking ass, revenge arcs, and Mel Gibson as the villain.  If you’ve seen any of the previous two, you get it.  While it’s a terrible movie in every aspect, it’s still kind of fun.  I think they tried to make it a good movie, which didn’t work, and therefore semi-fun to watch.

The Expendables 3 is still playing in theaters nationwide.
