Greatest Action Movie Chracters

The Top TenXW

1James Bond (The James Bond Series)Royal Navy Commander James Bond is a fictional character created by British journalist and novelist Ian Fleming in 1953. He is the protagonist of the James Bond series of novels, films, comics and video games.

How is this not number one. I am actually a little shocked he is not automatically one just for being James Bond. Daniel Craig is definitely the best bond.

In recent years, James Bond has evolved a lot from where he once stood. Bond will always be at the top of my list. - argon8

2John Rambo (The Rambo Series)

This is my favorite action character because Stallone has done full justice to it regarding action.
Action couldn't have been better.
Also the unique style of Rambo, being tough, strong, meek and jerk all at the same time. Rambo is a true friend, soldier and a fighting machine.
He deserves the first position.

The first super cool hero in the action movie history

Bond or Rambo? Talk about tough decisions...

3Neo (The Matrix Series)

The first movie is still the greatest movie ever

4Will Turner (Pirates of the Caribbean)William "Will" Turner is a fictional character and main protagonist in the first three Pirates of the Caribbean films.

Will Turner is very strong and beautiful character that got me fascinated forever. He is loyal, brave, dashing and loving. I wish the things went more happy for him. Will Turner, you are the man of my dreams!

The reason, why I watched the first part - and the reason, why I'm a fan of the (first) "Pirates"-trilogy. Without Will Turner "Pirates" is not "Pirates"...

Amazing character very believably done by the actor (Orlando Bloom) - tem

I am having a hard time choosing between him and Johnny. Both are great performances in all three films! - Hans

5The Terminator (The Terminator Series)The Terminator is a fictional autonomous robot from the Terminator franchise portrayed by both Arnold Schwarzenegger and numerous actor stand-ins digitally overlayed with Schwarzenegger's likeness.
6John McClane (The Die Hard Series)John McClane is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Die Hard film series. He is portrayed by Bruce Willis.

I love his character and the way he just turns terrorists threats into humourous situations
