Posted on August 15, 2014 by


The Expendables 3

Starring: Stallone, Statham, Couture, Crews, Gibson, Grammar, Li, Lundgren, Rousey, Schwarzenegger, Ford, Lutz, Davi, Ortiz, Snipes

Directed by: Patrick Hughes

Plot: The Expendables must team with a younger team of mercenaries when their former member turned ruthless arms dealer, Conrad Stonebanks, resurfaces.

Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 35%

Critic Consensus: “Like its predecessors, Expendables 3 offers a modicum of all-star thrills for old-school action thriller aficionados — but given all the talent assembled, it should have been a lot more fun”


Let’s Be Cops

Starring: Damon Wayans Jr, Jake Johnson, Rob Riggle, Nina Dobrev, James D’Arcy, Andy Garcia

Directed by: Luke Greenfield

Plot: After dressing like cops for a costume party, a pair of friends like the attention and respect they get and continue to pretend to be real officers.

RT Freshness: 12%

Critic Consensus: “Damon Wayans, Jr. and Jake Johnson have comedic chemistry; unfortunately, Let’s Be Cops fails to do anything with it”


The Giver

Starring: Brenton Thwaites, Meryl Streep, Alexander Skaarsgard, Odeya Rush, Katie Holmes, Jeff Bridges, Taylor Swift

Directed by: Phillip Noyce

Plot: In a seemingly perfect community, without war, pain, suffering, differences or choice, a young boy is chosen to learn from an elderly man about the true pain and pleasure of the “real” world.

RT Freshness: 27%

Critic Consensus: “Phillip Noyce directs The Giver with visual grace, but the movie doesn’t dig deep enough into the classic source material’s thought-provoking ideas”
