HARDCORE HEROES


The heroes in Hollywood action films seem almost superhuman; they dodge bullets, take out the bad guys and save the gal. But, of course, they're just movie characters. So, who are the real badasses of history? We'll show you.

Each episode of Hardcore Heroes will highlight several adrenaline-packed, real stories. We'll meet an amazing variety of badasses; from iconic asskickers who changed the course of history to unsung heroes., Average Joes who risked their lives, braved certain death, or turned the tide of battle. Every story will focus on the coolest tactics, the biggest gambles and the riskiest maneuvers that saved the day.
