Best Action Movie Franchise Ever? Science!
March 25th, 2015

Because my Mission: Impossible post is a like a splinter in your brain, Santino has decided to use The Science to figure out which action movie franchise is really the best of all time. There are charts and numbers and deltas.

Go. Right now. It’s awesome.

And let this be a lesson to all about the limits of Science to reveal deep truths: Santino’s rankings say that the Bourne movies are the best action franchise ever, and that the Rambo movies rank above Indiana Jones and the Alien series.

    This is the best thread on the internet this week. You’ve convinced me:
    – MI series is one of the top 2-3 action franchises ever.
    – Lethal Weapon is HIGHLY underrated (though Bunch ranks #2 a 7, and it is a 10 – “Deeeeplomatic Eeeemunity”

    Where do the Jack Ryan films rank using Science?
    HFRO- 9
    Patriot Games- 9
    CaPD- 7
    SoaF- 3
    Capt Kirk plays Jack Ryan- 1
