Top Ten Greatest Movie Characters
The Top TenXW
monumental performance, what an amazing character
The best complete performance ever, you'll be always missed, Heath
I was voting on the best quote just before this, where I wrote that NO ONE could have played this role better! Such a shame that we've lost Heath Ledger! They should never attempt a Batman with the Joker again - impossible comparison!
A scary mirror to the hero showing the fear that comes with the lack of guilt yet still have a human core showing what happens if you pound a city to a point is a need to lash out and in the batman's control of Gotham they released the polar oppositeV26 Comments
grestest movie characters of all time
better than will turner
What is rubbish When you say will turner is greatest character. I think it is Act of some foolish girls those have right to Vote. only the Captain jack sparrow is numero uno... What could you wanted more from johnny depp... savvy...
It's stupid to keep will turner at first place when we have jack sparrow here. Johnny Depp acts like he himself is the character, good actor must be in the first place.
Most Entertaining in all aspects of the actV17 Comments
Marlon Brando was a fantastic actor and was perfect in this role. He should be higher, this role was some of the greatest acting in any movie. Actually number should be every characer played by Marlon Brando.
Marlon Brando is such a great actor, especially in gangster/mobster movies. He's a classic.
Marlon Brando was the best everV3 Comments
Darth Vader is arguably the most iconic movie villain of all time. Everyone in the Empire is afraid of him except for the Emperor and Grand Moff Tarkin. James Earl Jones successfully provides the unforgettable voice of Darth Vader. Not to forget the major plot twist "No, I am your father..."
Darth Vader is probably the most iconic movie character ever! He represents evil and he's just kickass in the first three movies, besides, he says one the most famous lines in movie history (No, I am your father). - Nintendonix
No-one can top Darth Vader probably because of his famous line " Luke I am your father also how he is a part of the biggest icons ever the star wars trilogy and how he is so hard core
" I am your Father"
Join me and together we can role the gaming as father and sonV17 Comments
Are you Kidding' me!? This is your #1 Spot right here!
Forrest Gump (1994) is an Epic Phenomenon! The Greatest movie Character of All-time tied with Judah Ben Hur of the Legendary Ben Hur (1959). - Nirmal1991USA
Phenomenal Character, Legendary Epic & Breathtaking Masterpiece!
His story is so moving. He went through so much to get Jenny!
This Should Be In Number 1!V8 Comments
Indiana Jones is the classic movie hero! OBVIOUSLY he should be number one! The only people that I think could compete with Indiana Jones himself are Vito Corleone and Darth Vader. - higgsboson2142
No no NO, orlando bloom will turner, don't make me laugh, the worst list ever, at least Indiana jones is in it
If adventure had a name... It would be Indiana Jones! Harrison Ford did an amazing job with such an amazing kick-butt character!
Archeology has never looked this fascinating because of JonesV8 Comments
He's basically a philosopher. Everything he say takes some time to process, but once it sinks in, it really changes you. Also, he's not just a character but a figment of "Jack's" imagination.
I'm a huge joker fan, but surely this character must be in top5... Brad Pitt at his best
He is the best movie character because everyone wants to look like him he is the ultimate movie character
This guy deserves to be in the top 5. Brad pitt at his best.V8 Comments
NOTHING BUT A BUNCH OF ****ING COCK-A-ROACHES!
Love the way he pronounces it
How is The Joker (as amazing and captivating Heath's performance was) above the absolute GREATEST movie criminals ever. - SuperMugen95
Six words will forever keep his place in cinematic history.

Han Solo is the coolest character in Star Wars. He is also the second most impactful Star Wars Character beaten only by Darth Vader. Harrison Ford does a spectacular performance for Han Solo
How is Indiana Jones higher, he's better in Star Wars.
We like him because he's poor and he is not mary sue
Money smuggler that became a hero!V2 Comments
Homer Simpson will forever be the King of Cartoons. He is absolutely hilarious, and he can manage that without being super inappropriate or sex jokes. (We're looking at you, Family Guy. ) The Joker wasn't that great. He did an above average job on the character, besides The Joker isn't supposed to creep you out and give you nightmares, he's supposed to have a cartoony feel.
He is the funniest guy going around. Long live the Simpsons movie and may there be a sequel.
He's animated, for crying out loud! At least the five ahead of him are real roles that required acting and not just a voice over. Hannibal Lecter not in the top five is just wrong. Watch Silence of the Lambs and then just try to forget him!

Norman bates was based off a real life serial killer named Ed Gein, who was also the inspiration for leatherface in the Texas chainsaw massacre, and buffalo bill in the silence of the lambs. although, ed gein never wore a body suit out of people's skin, he did wear a mask out of leather which was the inspiration for leatherface.V1 Comment
Not quite for the reason you think. While Jules is credibly scary and intimidating, certainly more competent than his useless buddy Vincent, he's also smart enough to think outside the box.
In fact, Jules has the best development out of all the characters in the movie. Over time, he develops a conscience and decides that being a mob boss' thug just isn't for him. Best of all? He faced down a restaurant robber without firing a single shot.
Wow only 0.2%... The problem with this is that very less people have seen 'Pulp Fiction' Jules is one of the most humorous and iconic characters of all time... Shame on this list... He should at least get a spot in Top 10
The Joker and Han Solo are fantastic, but Jules is still the best. You read the bible, Ringo? - jarjar36V3 Comments
Definitely the greatest in all its incarnations. - Szonana
The lord of the rings knocks the pirates of the carribean's socks off!
He is a great person why?
1. He has Lego in his name and I love Lego!
2. He never dies well he survives almost anything
3. he can whoop some butt of the enemies in the movie franchise
4. I like his bone and arrows 0_0
He can take down anything that's in his way. Orcs, trolls, wargs, even giant elephants.
Legolas is awesomeV6 Comments
I'm sorry but 59! Tony Stark is the most charismatic, funniest, and best super hero character of ALL time. This guy is just amazing and to see cartoon characters ahead of him is just insulting. Epic character!
Tony so does not deserve being 20th :( he is the most charismatic, attractive, the funniest character ever! - littlerunaway
Love you, the king of machines
. The genius behind iron man, my and everyone's favorite is anthony Howard stark and will always be a legend through the generations
I hate iron manV5 Comments
This scruffy, plucky loser scoundrel, who can go from deadly to adorable in the blink of an eye, makes me laugh harder than any character in a straight-up comedy ever could. Despite all the crimes he's committed, we also sympathise with his plight and are so fascinated by how much he can endure that he end up kind of wanting him to win in the end. He's very easy to empathise with.
If you're likewise feisty and a bit awkward, then he's probably the character in a Spaghetti Western you'll end up relating to the most.
Furthermore, he redefined the Mexican Bandito character for a new generation as a sympathetic figure rather than merely a Malicious one.
Hot-headed, temperamental, manipulative, cunning, desperate, animalistic, yet tenacious, goofy, charming, absurdly energetic, absolutely hilarious, and with sort of a warm and welcoming aura about him, this is one of the most interesting movie characters you'll ever see. - SourNote2014
In fact, without Tuco, the movie would not be the cinematic masterpiece it is. He gave the movie a soul.
A genuinely funny character with a lot of depth.
Now who doesn't think Robert here did a great job as Freddy? I say no one, especially not Jackie can play Freddy. Robert forever :-)
No one can ever play Freddy as good as Mr. Englund did because he played the role so good people get nightmares without seeing the movie.
Who the bleep thought bleeping mamas boy is better then me!
Best character ever. Sometimes I still get paranoid at night. - birdechosplashV2 Comments
Why are you not voting for me, Clarice?
Are you serious?!?! Why is Hannibal Lecter #24?! Hopkins and Ledger should be rivaling or the top spot. Come on now. Hannibal wasn't even the main antagonist of Silence of the Lambs, yet he stole the spotlight and will forever be the face of that movie.
Hannibal Lector is an incredible, psychopathic and clever character the fact that he is only number 10 is very surprising and weird, also the way he is a psychiatrist makes him an even more dangerous man, in my opinion he truly is the ultimate movie character
The women who played a journalist in that movie was actually scared of him when making the movie. - birdechosplashV7 Comments
Unrelenting emotion and vigor in rags.
