    Who's better based on their body of work as an actor? Doesn't matter how you look at it, whether it's the box office, whether you liked their acting better, or if you liked the movies they were in better, just who the fuck is better?

    Never liked Tom Cruise. I can tolerate him in some movies.

    Used to enjoy Smith. I think his time has passed though.

    Tom Cruise has been in the better films so I give it to him. They're both very good actors, that can't save a shitty script.

    Both are awesome. Had to give it to Tom Cruise for the volleyball scene in top gun alone.
    But Will Smith has the unique ability that he can carry almost all shitty movies by simply acting like "Will Smith".

    Vast majority of sherdog users and UFC fans are white trailer trash. No surprise that Cruise is ahead in the poll despite being an inferior talent on all levels.

    Tom Cruise's 80's and 90's run is unmatched.

    Smith had an awesome run himself but not nearly as good.

    although it's often seen as a glib adaptation of the guare play, i thought will smith showed off his acting chops in six degrees of separation -- one of his early films -- all the while putting his future in the business at stake. and even though it was rumored that will had refused to kiss a man on film [at least that is what i remember hearing], i think he showed that had he decided to go another route in his career, will could've made it to tier-one and sat alongside some of the greats [we are talking about public perceptions of his is, or isn't, great].

    he is better than decraprio, and should be treated as such.

    where the day takes you: n/a
    made in america: n/a
    six degrees of separation: 6/10
    bad boys: 4/10
    independence day: 5/10
    men in black: 7/10
    enemy of the state: 6/10
    wild wild west: 3/10
    legend of vance: n/a
    ali: n/a
    men in black 2: 4/10
    bad boys 2: n/a
    i/ robot: 3/10
    shark tale: n/a
    hitch: 2/10
    pursuit of h.: 5/10
    i am legend: 6/10
    hancock: 4/10
    seven pounds: n/a
    men in black 3: 4/10
    [n/a for the rest of his filmography]


    as far as tom cruise, i haven't seen his so-called best films, making it hard for me to judge him overall.

    the outsiders: 5/10
    a few good men: 6/10
    the firm: 6/10 (because gary busey)
    mission impossible: 5/10
    eyes wide shut: 6/10
    mission impossible 2: 5/10
    vanilla sky: 5/10
    minority report: 6/10
    tropic thunder: 7/10
    mission imp. rogue nation: 5/10

    i'll say. . . will > tommy

    Tough choice. Smith has some performances that I really like... Ali, Pursuit of Happiness.. but some other stuff I really dislike.

    Cruise is good actor, but his 80s stuff was cheesy as fuck.

    I don't agree that he's better than Dicaprio, but if you really think that then you should vote Smiff, because Dicaprio blows Cruise out of the water.
