“Expendables 3” could have been called “The Dependables” for its return of the action-movie stars we’ve come to expect, including ringleader Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and 3rd Dan black belt and real-life chemical engineer Dolph Lundgren.
There are the jack-in-the-box new old guys, including Harrison Ford, and the welcome return of Wesley Snipes. But there’s also a huge massive infusion of young blood, including Kellan Lutz of “Twilight,” former boxing champion Victor Ortiz and current UFC champion Ronda Rousey (of the recent 16-second knockout). The Chronicle asked the baby Expendables and Fulbright scholar (seriously!) Lundgren about the meeting of the generations.
