So not even Chuck Norris’ insistence of no f-bombs could stop Expendables 2 from getting the big R rating. Was there some sort of compromise? Maybe there are no f-bombs in Chuck’s scenes? It seems like these days the MPAA is more concerned with f-bombs and sex scenes than they are about outright violence. With that in mind, one would begin to wonder exactly what garnered Expendables 2 the action fans’ rating of choice. It probably is simply due to outright killings, but we won’t know for sure until the film hits theaters on August 17th.
In the meantime, Sly and the boys have released a behind the scenes featurette to get us all excited for the actionfest. The film stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Liam Hemsworth, Chuck Norris, and Jean-Claude Van Damme. Yup, that’s about every action hero from the 80’s and early 90’s and some wrestlers just to balance the mix.
Check out the featurette below and let us know what you think!
