Keanu Reeves Or Tom Cruise?
I have a confession. This post initially began with a various concern: who is the best present action motion picture star? The only requirements was that they needed to be American, which implies Charlize Theron, Scott Adkins, and Jason Statham were exempt. However that still left Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Michelle Rodriguez, Scarlett Johansson, Dave Bautista, Will Smith, and Bruce Willis, to name a few. Those are some A-list stars, however likewise an uninspiring group of action motion picture stars, whether since they’re past their prime (Willis, Schwarzenegger) or too based on one franchise (Johnson), or idea of as superheroes rather action stars (Johansson). And I wasn’t prepared to offer it to Jurassic World‘s Chris Pratt, either. No offense, Andy Dwyer.
Besides, I ultimately understood this is a two-person contest: Keanu Reeves or Tom Cruise They both [extremely “went to film school” voice] kick ass and have actually been doing so for years. In reality, prior to we start, let’s go through every motion picture in both star’s filmographies that can be thought about in the “action” category.
Reeves: Point Break, Speed, Johnny Mnemonic, Domino Effect, The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions, Constantine, Street Kings, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Guy of Tai Chi, 47 Ronin, John Wick, Keanu(type of!), John Wick: Chapter 2, and John Wick: Chapter 3– Parabellum
Cruise: Leading Weapon, Days of Thunder, Objective: Difficult, Objective: Difficult 2, Minority Report, The Last Samurai, Security, War of the Worlds, Objective: Difficult III, Tropic Thunder(this is Cruise’s Keanu), Knight and Day, Objective: Difficult– Ghost Procedure, Jack Reacher, Oblivion, Edge of Tomorrow, Objective: Difficult– Rogue Country, Jack Reacher: Never Ever Return, The Mummy, American Made, and Objective: Difficult– Fallout
These are the only films I’m thinking about. No Costs & Ted’s Exceptional Experience for Reeves, no Jerry Maguire for Cruise (Keanu would clearly win). I’m likewise not taking into consideration the individual lives for both males (once again, it would be Keanu in a landslide). This is almost Tom Cruise: Action Film Star vs. Keanu Reeves: Action Film Star as identified through 6 different classifications, and now I’m all of a sudden distressed that they have actually never ever appeared in the very same movie. Reeves in Objective: Difficult 6 makes more sense than Cruise in John Wick 4, however … I’m stalling since I do not wish to pick; they’re both amazing. However to price estimate another well-known action motion picture, there can just be one.
Taking a look at the list above, Cruise has actually just turned 2 movies into franchises: Objective: Difficult and Jack Reacher(that list will grow with Leading Weapon: Radical and Edge of 2morrow, presuming it really gets made). The latter is way more enjoyable than its offered credit for, however Cruise’s signature franchise is clearly Objective: Difficult Reeves likewise has 2 series under factor to consider: The Matrix and John Wick I’m lured to choose John Wick, however I understand that’s recency predisposition talking: The Matrix is among the most prominent films of all-time However sadly, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions likewise exist. I can offer a half-hearted defense to the inspired messiness of Refilled, which is truly awesome sometimes, however not Transformations I have my limitations, and my limitation is this wicked laugh So, if it boils down to Objective: Difficult or The Matrix( MATRIX: IMPOSSIBLE), the winner is the Objective: Difficult films, which continue to enhance. Fallout is the 6th movie in the franchise, and the very best. Envision the number of cake orgasms would have remained in the 6th Matrix motion picture.
