THE EXPENDABLES 3 is an action adventure film, the third in the franchise, in which a team of veteran mercenaries set out to bring down a ruthless international arms dealer.

Violence

There is moderate action violence throughout. This takes the form of battles involving guns and other weaponry, as well as crunchy hand-to-hand combat sequences. Knives are used from time to time. However, very little is seen in terms of blood or injury detail. The violence is further moderated by the delivery of comic one-liners by various characters.

Language

There is a single use of strong language ('f**k'). There is also mild and moderate bad language, including uses of 'arse', 'assholes', 'bastard', 'bitch', 'bullshit', 'pussies', 'son of a bitch' and 'shit'.

Other issues includes scenes of adult cigar smoking.
