10 Reasons Why John McClane Is The Ultimate Badass

When it comes to kicking ass and taking names, John McClane’s got it down to a science. Take a look at a few reasons why John deserves a spot in the badass hall of fame, and for more badassery, check out A Good Day To Die Hard, which hits theaters on February 14th.

1. He has the best catch phrases

2. He doesn’t need any f*cking shoes

3. He fought a guy on the wing of a plane and then later blew up the plane as it was taking off WITH NOTHING BUT A LIGHTER

4. What you call broken glass, John McClane calls carpet

5. He’s not afraid to face his fears

6. He works on Christmas and doesn’t complain about it. That much.

7. He’s the life of your office party

8. He managed to travel 90 city blocks in 30 minutes with no subway

9. He’s not a highly trained military battle god - he’s just a pretty good cop with a Marine background

10. And going bald has only made him deadlier

Don’t we all wish we could be THIS badass?
