In THE EXPENDABLES 3, Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team come face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables -- but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables’ most personal battle yet.

Barney decide que debe luchar contra la sangre antigua con sangre nueva, y recluta a una nueva etapa de miembros del equipo de Expendables, convocando a individuos más jóvenes, más veloces y con mayor conocimiento tecnológico. La última misión se convierte en un enfrentamiento entre el clásico estilo de la vieja escuela contra los expertos en alta tecnología, en la batalla más personal que hayan entablado los Expendables.
