Which one of these actors do you feel have had the better overall career ? Is it Harrison Ford or Tom Cruise ?

Tom Cruise is much much much more entertaining actor than Harrison Ford. Though I will take my hat off for the Indiana Jones movies, however the Mission Impossible trilogy was better in my eyes.

I'll go with Harrison Ford by a slim margin. He has two iconic characters under his belt and has never jumped on Oprah's couch.

No, Tom can't beat that, besides the mission imposible movies rely more on the visual effects than in cruise performance or iconic succes.

Harrison Ford was Indiana Jones and Han Solo. I dont know if Tom can beat that.

This was circulating during the last CA gubernatorial election. I think it pretty much says it all:

Honestly, while Tom has had some highlights as a dramatic actor (Magnolia), Ford has had the better overall career. Plus Ford has something Cruise never will: Class.

Ford:  Star Wars, Indiana Jones, The Fugitive, Blade Runner, Gunsmoke, American Graffiti, The Mod Squad, Kung-Fu, Apocalypse Now,
Patriot Games, Clear And Present Danger, Presumed Innocent, Air Force One, What Lies Beneath...

Cruise: Why bother, he's alright but none of them measure up to Fords credentials.

Harrison Ford, simply cause he's played two very iconic Chars... and I don't recall Tom doing that

Harrison Ford, by a landslide. That being said, I think Tom Cruise has a pretty damn good career, but to compare to Indiana Jones and Han Solo, you've gotta be somebody extraordinary.

I vote Ford for reasons that have been pretty well outlined above but I do think Ford's 80's movies get sort of overlooked and his acting in those. imo his best acting was all done in the 70's/80's. After that he became sort of stale and boring and his movies became pretty cliche.

  • Both are great and i,m a big fan of both.
  • But the edge goes to Tom Cruise becuase he has consistently shown himself to be the superior actor,Action Star and overall entertainer...This manz is one of the hardest working actors in the business hands down.
  • Exhibit A..lmao

The answer to this specific question is obviously Tom Cruise. The dude has been in more movies, is much more of a household name, has probably made double over his life than Ford, and is still acting in films to this day. I know Harrison is as well, but he's gonna retire soon.

As far as who the better actor is in terms of skill, I'd still probably go with Cruise. I mean, I prefer Harrison by a lot, but honestly, Tom just has much more versatility. He's a total nutcase, though...

Ford, he has three world renown movies under his belt (Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Blade Runner). while Cruise has one that I know of (Mission Impossible). Not to mention the fact that both me and my parents think he is a great actor, and for different reasons/roles. That should speak for itself.

Tom Cruise by far has had the better career, and he has still more to give in terms of entertainment value.

I've never been fond of Ford's acting ever since Air Force One.
