The Die Hard star, who will reprise his iconic role of New York cop John McClane in A Good Day To Die Hard, is part of the 90s action set alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone.

"I think there are new action stars - I think Jason Statham is one. He's really good," he told the Sun.

"And Daniel Craig is a pretty tough guy. He reinvented that whole genre. He made me start watching James Bond movies again. He's great."

Bruce - who will attend the premiere of A Good Day To Die Hard in London on February 7 - reckoned that the British pair would need some time before they reach Arnie and Sly's ranks.

"It takes a while to become a guy that is as mythical as Arnold Schwarzenegger. He's done a lot of things. He was the Governor of California - that was the most amazing thing that I have ever seen," he added.
