But this is going too far. Clive Owen is awesome. And so are some other British BA's. I'll stand up for them where they can't.
He started out in BMW short films as "the driver" where he proceeded to be an awesome getaway car driver. He has since been King Arthur (not the best movie, but he kicked some serious butt), and a guy who can kill practically anyone in Shoot Em Up. I tried to look up a clip of him just killing people, and being all around BA, but I couldn't find one without violence and blood. I rest my case.
Do I even need to clarify this with a defining statement? He started out his career doing a series of movies where he was a trash-talking wanna-be gangster, co-starring with Brad Pitt in one. From there, he's moved on to movies where he simply beats the crap out of people. Say what you will about the quality of films, the plot line or whatever, but you can't deny that you'd want to be on his good side.
Marni, I think you think that you snuck in that British comment sneakily into the comments of another section. Now, while I admit that Chuck Norris could annihilate both of these two combined, it's just not a fair comparison. If all men were compared to Chuck Norris, then we'd all fall short... he's just that awesome.
