The Expendables 3
Well, here's a movie that won't be playing Cannes or coming anywhere near it: "The Expendables 3." It's not high art, and these things are barely movies at all, but they do have explosions and old dudes causing those explosions and that's all some folks need.

The Expendables 3, Stallone
This summer, you're get a movie in which Kellan Lutz is considered as much of an action star as Arnold Schwarzenegger. Welcome the strange world of "The Expendables 3," a franchise which has morphed from "let's celebrate the action olds!" to "who can we get to up the irony factor?"

Sabotage
With nary an Ahnold quip, "Sabotage," David Ayer's fetishistically violent action thriller, often feels like a misguided detour, a waste of goodwill amassed by the superior "End of Watch." Doing away with the concept that guided the 2012 cop drama but retaining and supercharging it's once-relatable hyper masculinity, "Sabotage" is wholly unpleasant, unfocused and downright ugly. Ayer's filmography has often cast an unflinching eye on battered, perforated bodies, but here the attention feels invasive and even a bit gleeful. Every wound is flaunted and a series of gruesome autopsies feature a hungry, roving camera, floating over the torn skin, the bloated flesh, stripping away the humanity. One character is literally reduced to ground meat and Ayer holds on the remains with an intent that is lost on us.

No, you're not experiencing a time warp, a new Terminator movie is indeed on the way.

Sabotage
This weekend, you can head to the multiplex and see the latest dystopian YA adventure, watch Russell Crowe prepare for the flood, or if it's playing near you, perhaps check in to "The Grand Budapest Hotel." But if you're looking to just turn off your brain and watch an action film with all the subtlety of a bloody steak thrown on the grill, then "Sabotage" will do the trick.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Predator
"I remember a lot of times seeing John with his head in his hands, like 'What the hell have I gotten myself into,’ ” actor Carl Weathers recalled when discussing his stint on “Predator,” director John McTiernan’s 1987 sci-fi actioner. In many ways, the film was an act of pushing past any doubts or insecurities, as it exhibits an increasingly bizarre tone by McTiernan and a game Arnold Schwarzenegger to match it. And now we’ve got a look back at the sequel-spawning classic.

Sabotage
It's been a while since we've been able to go see an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie without having to drape ourselves in irony and wear our boots of nostalgia. But thankfully, "Sabotage" looks straight up legit—a pulpy B-movie that is firmly wearing its R-rating, and a new trailer is here to prove to you that Arnie has still got it.

Well, here's a weird sensation we haven't felt in a long time — excitement for a new Arnold Schwarzenegger movie. Okay, maybe "excitement" is overstating it a bit, but we're genuinely curious about "Sabotage," his upcoming flick co-written and directed by David Ayer because it actually looks kinda good. High art? Surely not, but perhaps a better than average B-movie which is all we could ask for.

Celebrate Action Stars After 60
This week, Liam Neeson can be seen in “Non Stop,” the latest in a surprisingly active career as an action star. While Neeson has a history peppered with prestige films here and there, make no mistake, his most recent resumé consists of kicking ass and taking names. What no one mentions is that Neeson, who is soon scheduled to show up in a third “Taken” film, is actually a spectacular 61 years old, which is impressive considering the leaping, punching, and growling he’s done in recent years. Have you seen your parents lately? They can barely open the door and hoodies terrify them.
