10 action movie heroes we hate rooting for

    an act Champions are underdogs at their core. They learn, after being immersed in horrific situations, what instincts they possess. They either fight or fly, lucky to live another day or make it to a narrow haven just in time. The decisions they make and don’t make under pressure define their personality. For some, it is about overcoming fear, whether it is real or unfounded. Others put themselves at risk to gain the upper hand. Then there is the rare case when work seems to find the hero through no fault of his own. An equally rare breed of action hero rides the line between saving everyone and saving his own skin. The heroes of the work who are indifferent to the sky falling around them are called anti-heroes. When it rains, it sizzles, and these action heroes only brought one umbrella.
