‘The Expendables 2′ Will Be Rated ‘R’ After All
Action fans anxiously awaiting the return of biceps, BOTOX and bazookas for 'The Expendables 2' were a little worried when news hit a few weeks ago that Chuck Norris said the star-studded sequel to the 2010 hard 'R' action extravaganza would be toned down because of his involvement. But, as it turns out, there's no need to worry.
A PG-13 sequel reuniting Sylvester Stallone, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture and Terry Crews with newcomers Jean-Claude Van Damme, Scott Adkins and Chuck Norris? YEAH, that's not going to cut it for guys who want blood, guts and swear words for 90 minutes straight.
Looks like there's some good news at the end of this Chuck Norris PG-13 rainbow. According to Stallonezone, Stallone had this to say about the actual rating of the movie:
“After taking in all the odd rumors and hearsay, EXPENDABLES II is an R.”
Whew! Looks like we can breathe a sigh of relief! Now all we have to worry about is understanding what half the cast is saying and we'll have one of the greatest action movies of all time.
