If any of the spies in our MOVIE SMACKDOWN "SPY-VS-SPY" SMACK actually existed, then Osama bin Laden would probably be old news by now. Maybe the fact that the real dangerous work of spying is so, well, dangerous and such hard work is the reason we like our fantasy spies to kick ass for us in the movie theaters. These guys get the job done. The bad guys get what's coming to them unlike real life where pesky issues like national sovereignty get in the way.
There's a new spy with an attitude in town thanks to this weekend's "Taken" which pulled in almost $25-million at the box office with Liam Neeson playing Bryan Mills. He joins the already swelling ranks populated by Daniel Craig's James Bond, Matt Damon's Jason Bourne and Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt. In our poll, we've thrown in Harrison Ford's Jack Ryan for good measure.
