    Keanu Reeves is obviously clearly the better actor. Duh.

    Highlander has not aged well at all but it is still a fantastic film and Ramirez is a great character.

    One of the few (non-rude) films that gets me excited on each repeated viewing.

    Malone. The damn-near-incomprehensible-to-anyone-not-of-Celtic-extraction argument/fist fight he had with the other Irish copper before he was shot was the highlight of the film for me.

    I've not seen both, but with my regard for his bond movies and a couple of others, namely The Rock and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, I just love him. Esp his performance in the Rock, that "Why am I not surprised, you piece of ****" still rings in my mind.

    Was good in The Rock actually, managed to save the film from Cage's over exitedness (actually a fan of Cage in certain roles though, just think he was a bit too giddy in that one)
