The Expendables 3 (2014)

Film details


Action thriller. After dramatically rescuing team member Doctor Death from a prison train, the Expendables (a group of veteran soldiers paid to do the government's nastiest jobs) are shocked to learn that Conrad Stonebanks, an Expendables co-founder who became a villainous arms dealer, is still alive. When Stonebanks almost kills them all in a Somalian dockside attack, group leader Barney Ross disbands them, fearing that their dangerous lifestyle will see them soon killed. Ross travels round with mercenary agent Bonaparte recruiting some young people to form his new team, and with them he goes after Stonebanks. Stonebanks turns the tables on them, though, and captures the new Expendables. Only Ross escapes. Re-joined by his old team, Ross leads an all-out bid to rescue the others and bring Stonebanks down for good.
