Terry Crews Defends EXPENDABLES 2 PG13 Rating; Says "Blood & Boobs" Do Not Make A Good Movie
One of the Expendables has spoken out in defense of the kid friendly rating slapped on Sly Stallone's action sequel..
So it seems as if Chuck Norris got his wish and the sequel to the (inexplicably) very popular Expendables will be suitable for pretty much anyone that cares to go see it. Apparently it was the cuss words that got Norris's goat. I guess years of smashing people's faces in can tend to lead to an aversion to profanity. Anyway, whatever the reason the movie will be toned the [frick] down, (oops, sorry Chuck) and this has led to quite a bit of fan backlash, considering one of the things that made the first movie so popular was the chance to see these old time action stars in an old school action environment - and that meant lots of damn violence and swearing! One of actors that make up the team of hard cases, Terry Crews, had this to say about the whole situation..
"It's PG-13. Do you really think only men 40 and over saw the first one? The kids bought tickets to Eat, Pray, Love and walked right into The Expendables. In fact, they were YOUR kids. I get it. I really do. But boobs and blood do not a good movie make. You don't want to go. Don't go. I respect it. But you will miss the greatest thing you've ever seen."
So, why have ratings for anything then Terry? I mean he's right too of course, usually having an R rating doesn't automatically mean a movie will be better than a PG13 one, but in this case it kinda does. I didn't like the first movie but I understood it's appeal at the same time, what the Hell is the point of making a sequel that completely undermines the whole reason for the first one existing in the first place? I dunno, I just don't get it. Maybe you guys can enlighten me. Do you agree with crews or do you think Norris should grow the Hell up?
