Which is a shame because they both can convincingly pull it off.
I think this was more of a last gasp for old school action movies than anything else. The last stand, bullet to the heard, parker all bombed. Die Hard 5 has been brutalized in the reviews and i'm wagering may face a similar fate.

Out of that list only fast and furious is probably going to be a smash and i for sure wouldn't call that franchise an "old school action movie" series.
