CatHalo’s recent review of ‘Expendables 2’ got me thinking (and also speaking in a simply terrible Irish accent, but that’s neither here nor there.) When I was a wee lad in the 80’s, it seemed that the mere mention of names like Stallone, Norris or Van Damme would sell tickets for a movie. Of course, of Stephen Seagal, the less said the better, but it still got me thinking about the fact that the major stars of the Expendables franchise are nearing Medicare age, and Chuck Norris is well over 70 years old! I’d say I hope to be that spry at 70, but I wasn’t that spry at 25, much less 40.
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is getting too old for this $#!+, asking: Is it difficult for you to suspend disbelief when a 70 year old actor does action scenes? Or would that just fall under the heading of ‘awesome?’
