    Badass Throw-down; Part one

    There is a massive list of action movie stars, and while there are some that are better than others, who would beat who?

    Which poses the question, Jason Stathem v. Liam Neeson. Battle of the Isles.


    Both Both born in the British Isles (Ireland and England) and while Neelson is 15 years older than Stathem, but come on, talk about the ability to improvise.


    ****Side note… Pondering a bracket style rundown, but don’t know how to rank each of the action movie stars to put them in round one… any suggestions?

    Are we supposed to evaluate based on the characters they play or real life? Bracket style would be fun. I'd say just do a random drawing since there may not be any good way to seed them.

    DJC7, none of these people have real lives... I would base it on the generalizations of the characters they play.

    Good to know. I figured if we were basing off of real skill than we should just skip the bracket and declare Bruce Lee the winner. lol

    Why do I have a feeling it will go down to Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris? (we will save that one for another day).

    Personally, going on topic, I would say that Neelson would take this one in a close match. Come on, he trained Batman. How much better can you get than training a super hero.

    Yeah, I'd have to agree. Statham has some moves, but Neeson is practically a ninja in Batman.

    My dad could beat up your dad.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Statham is tough but Neeson is Jedi.

    Clearly it would be the man with no name, and his 45 Long Colt
