Chuck Norris might be the missing piece to a kick ass action movie like The Expendables 2. However if the rating goes to PG-13 like Norris claims, it’s all downhill from there.
While talking to a Polish magazine, it was transcribed by Slashfilm, Norris had the following to say.
With The Expendables 2, you have a lot of hard language in there that means that means that young people won’t be able to see it. I said, I don’t do movies like that. I didn’t do them in the past, I didn’t do them on my TV series. I said, you have to cut out all the language, hardcore language or I can’t do it. So they did, and Expendables is now a PG-13 film so kids can see it.
This should be interesting to see how they work it all out. So if they take out the F-bombs and make it a PG-13 rating that means the violence is going to be on the same level. Honestly what is the point of making the film. Especially considering The Expendables was full of both language and violence. That is all that the first film had going for it, take out that and it has nothing. Good luck with The Expendables 2 guys.
The Expendables 2 is directed by Simon West and stars Norris, Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Liam Hemsworth, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Expendables 2 opens August 17, 2012.
