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.

Continuity mistake: When Ross and Galgo are in the plane taxiing to the runway (with propellers rotating), and see Ross' former team members standing in the way, the propellers are standing still. Seconds later, the propellers can be heard rotating again. (01:21:30)

Plot hole: Near the start we see Doc jump onto the back of a van and then on to some scaffolding. When he does this he is in plain sight of several armed men who are walking in the direction of Doc. These men would have seen Doc and raised the alarm, but they didn't. (00:16:00)

Trivia: Barney asks Drummer where Church is and Drummer replies "forget about him, he's out of the picture." A reference to Bruce Willis wanting too much money for his part in the film, hence he was cut out of the picture.

Trivia: Jason Statham almost drowned when the truck he was driving crashed into the sea after its brakes failed.

Trivia: In the opening scene, Dr. Death states he was sent to prison for "tax evasion." The actor who played Dr. Death, Wesley Snipes, was actually sentenced to prison from 2010-2013 for tax evasion.

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?
