Hey gang, the 21st century has 3 great secret agent franchises ( sorry I don't count Jack Ryan in the same league) based around a strong central character: James Bond ( Daniel Craig) Jason Bourne ( Matt Damon) Ethan Hunt ( Tom Cruise) So, who's your favorite ? Feel free to discus debate the relative merits of these characters ( yes, if people want to go there, who would win in a fight ?). If you want to talk about which is the better film series, or anything else go for it - it's all up for discussion. As for me, well Bond has history on his side, but I lost interest in him ages ago. And, until Rogue Nation and Fallout I would have gone with Bourne as best, as I thought the trilogy was really well crafted and slick. However, the last 2 MI films have been absolute stunners - I'm not sure if they can be topped. Ghost Protocol was also pretty impressive, particularly the Burj Khalifa climb. So, my vote goes to Hunt, he's really grown on me- in part because of Tom Cruise's willingness to do more and more insane stunts. As for who would win in a fight, IMO in a fair fight Bourne pretty handily.
