My Rating : 2.5/5 STARS
MovieStudio Quote >> “No where close to my expectations!”

Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) and his band of aging mercenaries recruit a younger crew to battle the one man capable of exterminating the Expendables in this sequel directed by Red Hill’s Patrick Hughes. When Barney and Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson) co-founded the Expendables, they were positively unstoppable.

The Expendables 3

Years later, Stonebanks abandoned the team to become a cutthroat arms dealer, and Barney was forced to kill the man he once called a brother. Little did Barney realize that Stonebanks survived, and has been biding his time for revenge ever since. Now the war has begun. Stonebanks is out for blood, and the only way Barney can defeat him is with the help of some tech-savvy new recruits.

With Lee Christmas (Jason Statham) and the regular crew backed up by some fresh faces who value brains over brawn, the final battle begins. Wesley Snipes, Harrison Ford, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ronda Rousey, Kellan Lutz, Victor Ortiz, and Kelsey Grammer co-star.

Command Performance (2009)

My Rating: 3/5 STARS
MovieStudio Quote >> “A very common styled action flick directed by Dolph himself, fairly average!”

Action icon Dolph Lundgren directs and stars in this film that finds the actor cast as a drummer who must become a hero. As the openers for a chart-topping singer at a Moscow show, Joe and his band think fame is just within reach.

Command Performance However, a group of terrorists has something else in mind for the concert and capture the singer–as well as the Russian president and his daughters.

Command Performance Joe might be used to pounding drums, but now he has to pound the bad guys in order to save the ruler and the three women.
