    I didn't care for The Expendables. I didn't believe it captured the feel of the 1980s action genre. But it did money so they're making TE2 with the original cast plus Van Damme, Liam Hemsworth, and Chuck Norris.

    Recently, Norris got himself some controversy because apparently he was the guy who successfully pushed for the sequel to earn a PG-13, which Stallone later confirmed. Read more about it here: http://www.joblo.com/horror-movies/...2-is-a-pg-13-film-as-per-chuck-norris-request and http://www.aintitcool.com/node/52774

    Exactly. If the whole purpose of these movies is to do a throwback to the 80s over the top action movies it HAS to be rated R. You need ridiculous violence, unnecessary tit shots and graphic language. Otherwise you're just making a GI Joe knock off.

    Sure they'll come out with the "unrated" DVD but it's annoying nonetheless.

    So long as Chuck Norris is attached to the pic, there won't be any semblance of naughtyness.

    I don't understand two things. First of all, Chuck Norris has done plenty of R rated movies. Second of all, Chuck Norris had done plenty of shitty R rated movies. He's probably the worst of all the 80's action stars that are in these movies. So why did they care if he left the project?

    The first one was unwatchable so I didn't see anything that was gonna convince me to see this one so rating doesn't matter to me.

    I have no way of proving this, but does anyone else think the idiot, out-of-touch producers were like "That Chuck Norris is popular with those Internet people and we need that Internet crowd."

    That's not why they hired him, but I agree it's almost definitely why they kept him, although the move to PG 13 may cause more bad internet buzz than firing Chuck Norris.

    I meant with the PG-13 thing and caving into Norris' "demands." I know they hired him to get the 80s action stars together, that much makes sense to me andI don't fault them for that. Also, part of the reason I don't care for the series is the inclusion of "newer" action "stars" like the MMA guys. I can somewhat accept Statham and Li, but not Couture for whatever reason.

    Randy is truly a living bad ass. The guy is close to 50 and stayed king of the ring for a long fucking time.

    Sure his acting skills are weak, but the guy defines bad ass, IMO.

    I also felt like Couture hadn't "earned" his spot, but he was really the only one.

    Chuck Norris is so tough, he can ask people politely to stop swearing.

    Don't worry you didn't miss anything.

    Behind Chuck Norris' beard is a vagina.

    All of these guys are has-beens now. This movie should have been made in 1987-1991. Unfortunately it still would have been terrible because all the budget would have gone to the cast.

    In that case, they should have gotten Hulk Hogan, Mohammed Ali, and Lawrence Taylor too....
