Terry Crews: Action movies are like religion

July 13th, 2012

Terry Crews thinks 'The Expendables 2' is like ''father, son, holy spirit''.

The 43-year-old actor believes action movies are like a ''religion'' to fans and doesn't think there are any bigger films in the genre than his latest project, which co-stars Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme.

He said: ''When you look at what this genre is, it literally becomes a religion to a lot of people. It's about what you believe in. Action movies have created that.

''When you a see a guy like Chuck, Arnold, Sly and Bruce, all together, it's literally like father, son, holy spirit. Not to be sacrilegious, but in the action world, that's what it is.''

Terry says the movie has one particularly ''iconic'' moment where the whole cast gathered together.

He told MTV News: ''I was totally ecstatic. One of my biggest scenes in the movie, I'm facing up with Arnold, the whole deal,'' he said. ''Last time, we didn't have a part of that. We knew it was happening, but we weren't there on the set to see all the guys there. We had one iconic moment on this tarmac in this airport, it was everybody, and we're all shooting at Jean-Claude. I had a surreal moment.

''It was a surreal moment. We may not ever see that again. Hopefully, we all live and keep going, but you go, 'This might never happen again,' and you have to enjoy the moment. Looking at playback with all the guys was crazy.''
