Oliver Davis reviews The Expendables 3... based entirely on the film's 50 second teaser trailer.

In a radical departure from the action movie franchise's usual tone, The Expendables' third installment ventures into comedy drama genre when everyone's favourite gang of aging bodybuilders are faced with the closure of their beloved aircraft hangar, where they meet to watch television, drink Bud Limes and plot 'one last mission(s).'

Even the revenge business isn't safe from the recession. After our heroes miss yet another rent payment on their Canadair Cl-215 amphibious flying boat, and the law suits from dispatched henchmen's families begin to stack up, Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) and Co. have two choices: raise $2 million by the end of the month, or face losing the only place where they can safely hang out and store a number of dangerous firearms.

There's only one way they can raise that money in such little time. »
