Crews doesn't seem to be willing to let go and continues with his controversial comments. It's regrettable that EX2 procedures don't do something to cool things down. This is what he had to say today on his Facebokk page:
good for the film is whatever Sly wants. He created it, directed it,
starred in it and is responsible for his vision of it. He saw the first
one as PG-13 also, but changed his mind and went with an R. If he does
the same thing here, I support him either way. Terminator 4 was a bad
film at PG-13 whereas INCEPTION or Dark Knight were brilliant films at
PG-13. I see it can be done, and I believe we did it."
you're a great guy, seriously, and I'm glad to see you come out
swinging for The Expendables 2. But honestly, it's still hard to get
excited over the movie with the PG-13 rating. Taking away so much of the
needed bloody action and general badass moments that made the first
movie work won't in the confines of a PG-13 movie. I would love to be
proven wrong, and I'll still see the movie, but I can safely say that my
excitement for it went down almost 70% when I heard it. I have to ask
though, did you guys film anything for an R-rated/unrated cut for the
blu-ray release down the line?"
Campbell - I understand you and I feel you. All I have been saying is
give EX2 a chance. I love rated R movies, and EX1 is no exception. If it
works it works. If it doesn't there won't be another one, plain and
simple- but you can't judge something YOU HAVEN'T SEEN. Certain people
have been attacking me for saying just that, and I responded to various
comments that I felt where out of line. But to a respectful fan such as
yourself, I wanted to let you know that I feel your pain and I believe
in my heart not one true Expendables fan will be disappointed."
This is what he had to say earlier: "I
don't need anyone speaking for me regarding EX2. The "true action fans"
didn't want me in the first place. Now they are acting like they made
me. I never was an action star. Ever. But I stood among the best and
held my own. Just like I'll stand face to face and toe to toe with
anyone who feels they can vote me out. Whether you like it or not, I'm
the baddest ass you are ever going to see. Period. I'm ready to die. Are
I think the EX2 producers should refrain him from making any further comments, all this seems to be hurting the movie's image with fans. And I don't think it's logic to compare Inception & Batman to EX2, not sure why Crews is using this kind of analogy.
