With the success of the aging cast in The Expendables movies, most Tom Cruise vehicles of the past decade, and Liam Neeson playing the aging badass in movies like Taken, when do you think actors should stop doing action movies/roles?

When their limbs fall off.
IDK, sometimes it looks like Arnold is falling apart. Sly looks in a bit better shape with the steroids helping.

I'm looking forward to #3 as well actually. I saw the first two and while I thought they were pretty good and not great, they were dumb fun to watch.

If I could change anything it would be the fight choreography. The Statham/Adkins fight could've been soo much better. Same with the Sly/Van Damme and every Jet Li fight in those movies.
