The Expendables 3 tanked at the box-office. Why? My theory: The PG-13 alienated the core audience (guys that are say 25 years old and up), they'll wait till the unrated Blu-Ray. And the leak nixed out the young demographic they were trying to nab in theaters - the kids downloaded it and saw it for free. All depending how it does overseas, this could be the end of The Expendables series. Too bad, as I loved Part 1 and 2 and liked this one. Wise move on Sly's part to jump into Rambo V right away. Just keep it an R man! Your audience are guys that grew up in the 80's/90's, not today's 13 years old kids.

that knife hahaha. Otherwise though yeah, cool. While I don't really think another Rambo is necessary I am looking forward to it. If Stallone directs it like he did the last one I'll be even more stoked, though hopefully he goes back to what he did in the theatrical cut rather than what he changed his mind to in the Director's Cut...

I really do not think the PG-13 rating affected it that much. Most people don't care about that. Some people are very vocal about it online, but in terms of the masses... I don't think they really care at all whether the film is R or PG-13, hell I don't think most people would even notice what the film is rated. They see the trailers, they see the action, they see the stars, they make their judgement. Most people don't judge based on an MPAA rating. If anything PG-13 brought in more people than it lost, with the additional 13-17 aged people.

The pirated copies probably had much more of an effect on it, but at the same time I don't think it has THAT much of an effect. I mean the same thing happened for X-Men Origins: Wolverine and that movie still did super well at the box office.

I definitely agree with Terror in that it was released at a dumb time. Their whole plan with the PG-13 was opening the film up to a new audience... yet they then decided to release it against Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles... like what are they thinking? This could've been a perfect movie to open up the summer, an April movie or something when competition isn't nearly as intense and when Summer isn't almost over/Summer blockbuster fatigue hasn't set in.

I skipped Expendables 3 for exactly the reason you mention. The PG-13 rating was a turn-off. The unrated blu-ray will be likely the best edition of this movie.

I loved it. Thought it was a blast. To me the PG-13 rating didn't harm it as it still had a really large body count. I don't think there will be an 'unrated' blu-ray as the film was filmed for PG-13 all along. Unless the add blood in post (like they did in pt. 2) and that always looks like crap

Studio: Lionsgate

Review:

Although I had fun with The Expendables 3, it is my least favorite entry in the franchise. The PG-13 rating and the way they cut around the violence to get it just didn't work for a film of this ilk. It's one thing to not have any blood (which looked odd, taking into account the mammoth body-count), it's another to awkwardly cut away from every neck-snap, stabbing etc. It ruined lots of the action for me. Think a hand-job with no pay-off. I truly hope that the Blu-Ray will be unrated (or rated R), cause I truly felt like I didn't see the whole movie. There's a better flick here and I want to see it...[more]...

Thanks for this review. I'm glad to know what to expect and it's kind of what I feared although didn't anticipate the lack of much Dolph, Arnold and Jet. :(

I'm hoping to see it later today or tomorrow.

Cochise at 01:52 PM Aug 16

really sucks to hear about Jet... but still nice to hear you thought it was good overall. The way you make it sound it kind of seems like they made it PG-13 through editing and technically could've shot it as an R and just edited to be a PG-13, like James Mangold did with The Wolverine. Though I doubt they actually did that. But who knows.

I personally thought the young cast were pretty likeable and charismatic, so I wouldn't mind seeing more of them in the next film(especially Rhonda Rousey, Meow! can't wait to see her in Fast 7)

I finally saw The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on the plane, dug it more than the first film. Then I re-watched The Winter Soldier and totally forgot about having seen The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Promo art for First Blood when Kirk Douglas was gonna play Col. Trautman. He pulled when they decided to NOT kill Rambo at the end of the film. The great Richard Crenna was cast at the last second with only one day to prep for the role.

He didnt like the decision to have him live I guess?

Glinda at 05:49 PM Aug 14

Yeah what the heck. Why would he want him to die? Didn't want sequels maybe? Well I do like Kirk Douglas but I'm glad it ended up being Richard Crenna. He fits the part perfectly and wow that's interesting he only had one day to prep. Good job on his part.

I always dug that Rambo was created by a Canadian writer. Canuck writer David Morrell wrote First Blood in 1972. He actually got the character's name off a brand of apples; Rambo Apples. Canada F*ck Yeah!

Damn you Rambo Video Game!

20140310_8a8862

I've been playing the RAMBO VIDEO GAME, which yes is very shoddy. Now I could live with it being a rail shooter (still an awful idea though) and I could endure the uneven graphics; but what I cannot take is this one glitch: when I'm in the middle of the action blowing away baddies; the game keeps changing my machine gun to the bow and arrow for no reason; which of course gets me killed every time (machine gun way more efficient than bow and arrow against an army). Even when I set it back to the machine gun, the moment I fire at an enemy bam, it switches to the bow and arrow...AGAIN. The glitch is driving me up the fucking wall, is making a lousy game even worse and it just won't stop! I may return the game just for that. Blows the mind that in this day and age of gaming; they couldn't pull off a GREAT Rambo game.

I'd play Ikari Warriors or P.O.W. Prisoner of War for your Rambo fix.

I've read some terrible things about this game, the same issues that seem to plague these cheaply-made rushed movie-to-game license tie-ins. The other most recent offender being that awful ALIENS: COLONIAL MARINES debacle.

If this game can't even meet the bare minimum standards of The Arrow, well.....that's all I need to know.

The Arrow
The Arrow at 06:55 AM Aug 04

If it wasn't for that bug, I'd be enjoying the game on some level. I'm gonna exchange my copy for a new one, if my new copy does the same thing; then I'll get a refund...

Watched The Road Warrior again last night. Made me question if Tom Hardy will be able to fill Mel's shoes as Mad Max. Tough one to pull off.

LelekPL at 10:01 AM Aug 03

If there's anyone I would give a chance it's Tom Hardy. Maybe Christian Bale. Both of them have the same edge as good ol Mel had.

Hard to imagine anyone bringing life to the role like Gibson did , but Hardy's take on the character could prove to be something very cool as well . I've got faith in his talent .

Johnboy16
Johnboy16 at 01:02 PM Aug 04

Hardy is a chameleon of an actor, the man's range is ridiculous. He's also a true badass so with that combo if anyone could pull of Mad Max, aside from the legend Mel Gibson, Hardy is the man for the job.
