It’s Tom vs. Dom as we pit the most venerable action franchises of the last 25 years for macho movie supremacy. In this heavy-hitting Vs. episode, we’re declassifying everything that makes Mission: Impossible a success and going under to hood to see all the moving parts of Fast & Furious. Across four categories — Box office performance, Tomatometer and Audience Scores, Characters, and Rubbin’ Is Racin’ (where we square each franchise’s action sequences against each other) — and one special wildcard category, we’ll find out what’s more important: Family, or jumping 25,000 feet out of an airplane. See which franchise emerges victorious, and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
