Tom Cruise's Son My Favorite Action Movie ... Does NOT Star My Dad

Top Gun, Days of Thunder, Mission Impossible, Mission Impossible 2, Minority Report, The Last Samurai, War of the Worlds ... classics ... but NONE of which classify as the #1 action movie of all time, this according to Tom Cruise's son.

Connor Cruise was out in L.A. this weekend ... when he revealed his numero uno when it comes to movies with explosions ... and while Connor selected a pretty great film ... we're kinda shocked it wasn't a movie that starred his father.
