The Expendables 3

Synopsis: Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team comes face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill... or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables -- but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables' most personal battle yet.

Lucky ring on.

I feel so much safer.

We're coming in hot.

Hold on.

Let's go.

What's the hold up?

Nothing, we're on our way.

Let's go.

Your dude's trippin'.

Stay on the wall, beware.

- Hey, forget this maniac.

- I'm not leaving him.


You're just gonna roll up on me huh?

After 8 damn years.

What's up with that?

You're in a black ops prison that

doesn't officially exist.

I just got the location from a guy named Church.

An agency spook.

Excuse me?

Agency's official relax.

Thank you for this, man.

What a waste of life!

You make one damn mistake.

It wasn't a mistake.

It was stupid. You'd done that to me,

I would've chopped you into pieces

You would've tried.

Hey, you want to thank the guys?

The guys?

Whe're our guys?

- Hammer, Guzman..

- Gone

They've gone?



Heard you killed more people than the plague!

How 'bout that?

That why they called you "Doctor Death"?

Used to be a medic.

But that was a long time ago.

So why'd you get locked away?

Tax evasion.

So you're all that's left of The Expendables?

We're it.

We started out with 5...

built up to 22

I see Barney still hanging the tags up there.

See that jingling sounds the tags make,

that's a reminder that our brothers are still here.


Come on viking.

Give me an old school of your blade.

Or else you might find your tags up there.

Jingling too.

Jingling... jingling jingling.

Sharpen it when you're done.

I think your friend is a little off.

Come on Christmas, he's been in

a hole for eight years.

How'd he get so lucky!

He tried pulling it off

his half-assed political...

assassination for a few bucks

in this place called Swaziland.

And he blew it.

Self destructive?

Yes something like that.

But in all those years he's a good medic.

Well, I don't need a checkup

- Why are you so sarcastic?

- You're vague

- Vague?

- Secrets, idiot.

I mean why do you take me off

half way round the planet?

To save this medical genius,

as you describe.

For what?

He's an Expendable.

Come on.

He's an Expandable.

So he's one of the flock

Well let me tell you something...

When you're incarcerated for years,

I'd come and save you.

Thanks hero!

But I doubt it.

And I know you'd do the same for me.


You'd let me rot?


Hey, Doc.

What's your name?


Is that real?


Is that real too?

Oh no, I uh... spend 3 hours every morning

putting this on with a black biro.

This is real.



Look at that.

Balance is a little off

You uh, a knife man?

Best, ever

I'm the knife before Christmas.

Ain't that right Barney?

If you say so.

Probably freestyling with a blade while

you're still sucking on your daddies titty...

trying to learn how to eat with a spoon.


You know that little secret you were

keeping Mr. Vaguo?

Stay out of my brain.

I'm gonna tell you

I can't wait to get home.

Eat some good food...

Put on some fine threads...

Break up my 49' Pontiac...

Keep that baby until the engine blows up...

You didn't tell him did you?

Tell me what?

We're not going home.

We're stopping at a

dealer named Victor Menz...

and delivering a shipment

of thermobaric bombs.

Ow, come on man.

That sh*t is hellfire.

Hey, it's routine stuff.

You know why don't you just

pick me up on your way back.

We're a man short.

Well, you know, I'd love

to party with you boys.

But, uh, I don't have my sh*t.

That's my sh*t!

It is your sh*t.

Doc, have you thanked the guys,

helping you out?

Say something.

Uh, listen up...

It's been a long time since I had a reason to say thank you...
