Top Ten Greatest Movie Characters

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Tuco Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Ramirez - Eli Wallach

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.

22Kikuchiyo - Toshiro Mifune

Unrelenting emotion and vigor in rags.

23Woody - Tom Hanks
24Neo - Keanu Reeves

Nei should use ones and zeros to go to one

I was torn between joker, Forrest Gump, and Homer Simpson, but you have to give credit to Keanu Reeves for finally finding a role that actually suits him.

25Ellen Ripley - Sigourney WeaverEllen Louise Ripley is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Alien film series played by American actress Sigourney Weaver.

Very few other female leads kick butt as Sigourney Weaver did in the Aliens series. Should have won the Oscar in '87.

26Park Gang-du - Song Kang-ho

A very real, flawed, human character, Gang-du was raised in a working class family with neither parent there for him, so he didn't get the proper nutrition he needed, which made him a bit drowsy and a bit stupid. He's certainly clumsy, which caused him to lose his daughter in the first place. He's presented as a character with a lot of pathos, whom no one takes seriously, but whose love for his family is enough for him to break out of a US Government quarantine unit.
He may not be the best family man, but he's got a heart the size of both Koreas and a lot of determination to protect his family, even if he fails at it.

I really pity Gang-du for what he goes through- loses family members, is constantly scolded by his siblings, and is put through quarantine several times. Poor guy! He hardly catches a break throughout the movie.
That said, he's got gumption and heart. How can you not love him?
Also, he's really cute.

27Katniss Everdeen - Jennifer Lawrence

15 that is way too high for her I found this series and the character overrated There are characters way better than her: Hermione Granger, Finnick Odair,Clove, Cato, Harry Potter, Severus Snape, Darth Vader, Han Solo, Legolas, Gandalf, and much more. Let me guess I am getting hate for offending your precious character and book just go read Battle Royal which The Hunger Games just ripped off

You really feel what she's going through, yet you can't help but cheer when she makes it. What a spirit! What an incredible character!

The Girl on Fire needs to be higher than 21

29Princess Yuki Akizuki - Misa Uehara

Noble and strong-willed, a good example of Kurosawa's feminism.

30Gandalf - Ian McKellen

Seriously? I had to put him on now? This guys role made the movies. Especially the first. How did orlando blooms legolas make it over gandalf?!

A wizard is never late, he arrives only when he mean to.. And on this list the wizard arrived on 72? Come on! You were supposed to tell his position not his age

I love joker so much. But I think GAndalf the grey is the best character for me

31Jason Voorhees - Kane HodderJason Voorhees is a character from the Friday the 13th series. He first appeared in Friday the 13th as the young son of camp cook-turned-murderer, Mrs.

He may have the highest kill count in Horror, but he's not all bad. He just loves his mother.

Easily enough one of the most iconic horror film characters.

I've heard his hockey mask is a detroit red wings mask.

How do you pronounce his last name? - birdechosplash

32Alex de Large - Malcolm McDowell

One of the most terrifying characters of all time

34Raj Malhotra - Shahrukh Khan

Shahrukh, is the best. - itsflashbuddy

35R.P. McMurphy - Jack Nicholson

"Don't wash your dirty underwear in public." I love that line.

36Mycroft Holmes - Stephen Fry

Stephen Fry and Robert Downey Jr have genuine chemistry unlike for example the 2 slags Milla Jovovich and Ali Larter.

Stephen Fry is a joy to watch especially when he's witty as Mycroft in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

You know the voters are more slow witted than you've been leading me to believe Sherley. People are stupid to be voting Jovovich over the witty Stephen Fry

Stephen Fry is a class act which makes kim ideal for Mycroft.

37The Tramp - Charlie Chaplin

One of the greatest cinematic characters. It is the symbol of silent movies.

38Yoda - Frank OzV1 Comment
39Alice - Milla Jovovich

She's a badass! Enough Said.

40James Bond - Pierce Brosnan

This character started most of the action that's in films today.
These characters ahead of 007, don't deserve to be here, he could kick there ass any day.

007 is one of the best characters ever, he should be in the top ten ahead of Heath Ledgers joker.

One more Vote for Pierce Brosnan Bond - Szonana
