  • The Expendables 3

    Movie Review | Becky Suter | 6th August 2014

    In The Expendables 3, grizzled veteran Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) faces an existential crisis after miraculously cheating death and battling the ravages of age, and is ultimately forced to put his demons to rest to defeat a former ally who has gone rogue. Oh, and literally blow the shit up out of everything he passes.

  • Who looks most bored on the new poster for The Expendables 2?

    Movie Feature | Ali | 16th June 2012

    It's the most exciting action movie of the year, featuring an ambulance-full of action heroes, eager to show they can still cut it in the modern world. Why, then, do they all look so bloody miserable?

Sub Matrix silliness. Here's a clue - wh...
