OIh, whoops. I thought you meant John Matrix.

Please excuse my friend, he's dead tired.

Snake totally. Mc Claine is a badass, but Snake would take his ass out real quick.

Snake could beat John with one eye closed.


Although, it would also depend on how many stories up they are.

Snake would have to take him out quick. If the fight lingered, i'd say McClane might pull out a win.

Definitely Snake. A better comparison for John McClane would be Riggs from Lethal Weapon. Both born out of the 80s, same genre, with 4 movies each.

17 years ago I'd say John Mclaine. He's smart as Coloumbo, crafty as MacGuyver and has as much heart as Rocky but time has softened him. Snake's a badass no matter how much time passes.

Nope. Snake doesn't care about other people, male or female.

At first I thought it said Snake Plisken vs. John McCain.

That I would pay to see.

I'm going to go against the grain here and say McClane will be victorious.

John McClane can take on 14 terrorists, an angry ex-wife, be beaten to bloody hell - all while barefoot- and still come out with a wisecrack and an asskicking.

Snake Plisskin was fooled by a common cold...

Snake, all the way. He just screams badass, without ever raising his voice above a whisper.

14 terrorists? Snake took on an entire island, plus several soldiers in the military.

Snake. Unless McClane's been getting beat up for the past two hours, then McClane.

How about this: Snake Plissken vs. Prince in a game of basketball. "Challenge him!"

I would say a better comparison is Jack Bauer vs. John McClane.
