Simply put, we don't get really good action films anymore. They are all so tame (lame) and pulled back on the action/carnage that they never seem real or catch fire. LETHAL WEAPON, 48 HOURS and DIE HARD would be impossible to make today. Same goes for the RAMBO films, COMMANDO, PREDATOR and ALIENS.

Witness the PG-13 TOTAL RECALL remake.

Yup, they certainly are. Upcoming example, LOCKOUT, which had a very tough, rough R rated script, filled with F bombs, one liners, eye gouges and blood letting. Yet the film has been rated PG-13. Impossible based upon the script I read.

And yet, it IS a PG-13 film. Oh joy.
