Now I do like the plot "shutter" plots in an action movie I'm off to a fantastic start. This installment starts off with Barney and his happy family gives a great big hug and a C4 laden kiss from them to a Russian prisoner transport train. There they rescue one of the original Expendables, Doc played by Wesley Snipes who had been stuck in a Russian prison for a few years after a botched job. But before the team can bring Blade back to the good ol' US of A they just need to take out an arms dealer on the way back. However it turns out it wasn't any old dealer they were dealing with it was...
|Hell do you want Sugar tits?|
|Caesar, not, in this, movie, LIAR!!!!|
Now on to the other theme I saw in this movie, how far does one go before being taken over by the dark side? The villain, Stonebanks was one of the original five who then decided that he wanted to move up the food chain. During the scene where Barney confronts Stonebanks in the getaway truck after they captured him, he asks Barney what the difference is between the two? They both have killed lots of people, have seen a fair chunk of their comrades die and yet one is a death dealer while the other is a weary old solder who doesn't know when to die. What was it exactly that separates the two? Stonebanks says that it was Barney's conscience that got the others killed trying to stop him, is it that simple?
|Aren't you thinking about this too much s***head?|
In a nut shell if you've seen any other movies in this franchise and liked them you should come away with just as much 80's throwback nonsense as the others, and hey, look at it this way this should tide you over if you've seen Guardians of the Galaxy or you can use this as an excuse to get out of seeing Michael Bay's TMNT.
