    Are these boys ever going to learn? If it hasn't worked after years of litigation and untold millions in court costs, what makes them all think it will just suddenly work now or later? By the time they come close to recouping this so-called "loss", they'll have probably spent twice as much.

    I expect they are trying to scare parents into stopping their kids.

    Yeah even 20+yr old kids must learn at some point that's true...
    Not to mention the 50+yr old kids that also like to do this.

    My point is that it's not only "kids" that does this, but loads of people. ;)

    I don't see why people are liking this movie. I do admit that I've never watched Expendables 2 and 3 movies, but I've watched the first one and surely it is one of the crappiest movie I've ever watched. It really surprised me that it has 2 sequels. It is not even worth to get pirated.

    I've often noticed that it's the stinkers that get pirated a lot more, and that the pirate police most often try harder to go after the ones seeking those stinkers. I guess if you can't make the dollars in the theater, get them by chasing wild geese and wasting even more money. The entertainment industry is a confusing thing.

    Thieves are pretty straightforward, though.

    I think they're after publicity. They try to stir some curiosity and make people go see the film.

    Seems like the bigger the Hollywood garbage, the more people love to pirate it...

    Or maybe they'd learn that you don't need some hundred million dollars to make a movie that has commercial success and instead bank on making an actual work of art, REAL film. Oh wait, they wouldn't want to take that kind of risk. So stick it to the very people who even wanted to see your film, and then wonder why people would rather support, even donate, to lower budget indie films.

    It's just hard to care about most these movies these days when they're formulated on playing it safe using known past hits and franchises. They just want to invest 100mil and rake in double. :(
