The first three films from the action series featuring an ensemble cast which includes Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li and Dolph Lundgren. 'The Expendables' (2010), directed by Stallone, follows a group of professional killers as they join forces to bring down a South American dictator.
With cameo appearances from Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis, the film also sees Stallone and Schwarzenegger sharing a screen for the first time ever.
In 'The Expendables 2' (2012) Mr Church (Willis) reunites the formidable Expendables team, plus new member Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth), for what should be a straightforward job.
But when one of their number is murdered by adversary Jean Vilain (Jean-Claude Van Damme), the team's quest for revenge finds them pitted against an unexpected rival.
In 'The Expendables 3' (2014) Barney Ross (Stallone) comes face-to-face with old nemesis Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson), with whom he originally formed the group of mercenaries known as the Expendables.
However, when Stonebanks turned into a dangerous arms trader, Barney had no choice but to take him out and believed him to be dead - until now.
With some new, younger additions to his team, Barney once again confronts Stonebanks but will the mission be a success this time?
