PG-13 Action Team?

2010's The Expendables starred pretty much every single action star of the last thirty years, except for Chuck Norris and Van-Damme. It was rated R for the bloody violence and bad language, but still was a hit movie making over $274 million dollars. The forthcoming The Expendables 2, now with Norris and Van-Damme, may get a PG-13 rating because...

Because as star Sylvester Stallone has said "This movie touches on many emotions which we want to share with the broadest audience possible...". Now on the one hand, gore and foul language don't make a movie, but the fear is that the movie will feel like a watered-down version of the original. Now, to me, I really have no problem with this seeing as how I was never really a big fan of the first movie, but I hate an action movie (or any movie for that matter) diluting itself to get a "broader" PG-13 rating. Broader isn't always better.
