The Expendables 3

Factual error: Their 'spot' for drinking is apparently in the French Quarter because of the street signs. That said, they are drinking Budvar beer. If you know about Budvar, it is the original Budweiser beer from the Czech Republic. Budweiser sued Budvar and won, preventing them from using the name 'Budweiser', even though Adolph Busch came up with 'Budweiser' after going to Pilsner, Czechoslovakia. Budweiser being the bully, and their lawyers and all, won the lawsuit. So now the beer is sold as 'Czechvar' in the US and 'Budvar' everywhere else, meaning they couldn't be drinking it in the USA.

Factual error: It is stated that X-rays would ruin the oils in paintings. However, it is commonplace to X-ray paintings to see what lays beneath.

Question: The opening scene with the train crashing into the military base played out an awful lot like the Macbeth boss fight in Star Fox 64. Is this on purpose?
