My sons and I play this game: who is the baddest bad ass of all? It started when we watched James Bond. The argument was, who would win: James Bond or Indiana Jones?
After hours of discussion (a very guy thing), we decided on James Bond. He’s just more ruthless than Indiana. Okay, then who else?
Among the nominees:
Hawkeye (Daniel Day-Lewis from Last of the Mohicans
, not that wimp from MASH
Kirk Douglas as Spartacus
If done with the proper reverence (and enough beer), this discussion can take on a profound, philosophical dimension. And the debate leads to interesting tangents. Why not Magneto playing the lead in Sleepless in Seattle?
Wolverine in The Ten Commandments.
Shaft in Lord of the Rings.
So who is our champion bad ass?
He doesn’t have superpowers, true. But he is crafty and dark enough to do anything to win.
What about the women? No contest here.
Ripley from Aliens.
So who is your nominee for supreme Bad Ass?
