Thanks to everyone who voted on Motion Picks (available in the Noovie Trivia app), our winner for the top action hero goes to John Wick from the John Wick franchise.

Nicknamed Baba Yaga (which in English translates to "Boogeyman"), John Wick is a stone-cold killer with an untouchable reputation. All of the men on this list have certainly earned their spot. James Bond was voted just below our winner. But there can only be one top action hero in this article and the fans have decided that our top hero is John Wick. It takes a different kind of man to be given an impossible task, and without hesitation complete that task. There's a laundry list of reasons that John Wick is our victor here, one being that we're pretty sure if some kind of battle royale went down between these men, he would be the last man standing. No question.

The main reason we think Noovie fans chose him is because he can kill anyone with just about anything. A pencil. A book. You name it! And, no matter how many guns are pointed in his direction, he never backs down from a fight. That takes some serious guts. And it probably doesn't hurt to have a bulletproof suit. Classy, Mr. Wick. And finally, he's a dog lover. Every action hero has a sidekick, or a girl on their arm, but all this man had was a dog. So, you think you can kill his dog with no consequences. Think again sir!

For those that might not agree with the pick, or maybe you just want to have a voice in our next decision, go to Motion Picks and vote for your favorites (and play lots of trivia) by downloading our Noovie Trivia App.
