The Expendables 3

Okay, there is some language but the blood and gore is nothing worse than 007, They don't go to the floor as soon as there shot they wobble and it's not that realistic. Language on the other hand is a problem, it has more than Expendables 1 or Expendables 2. It is for 11+. Many scenes of Arnold Schwarzenegger smoking. Great Film Though. Helping each other and calling each other family is good role models and messages.
