Top Ten Bravest Characters in Movies and TV SeriesBrave characters can carry a film to greatness, and inspire us. Here are some of my favorites. Please add any you feel merit inclusion.
The Top Ten
A beautiful film. A highly courageous character that 1st must defeat some personal demons, only to find the truly courageous and honorable are his adversaries/captors.
The best out of all. Hands down.
Although this film has quite a few historical inaccuracies, there can be no doubt that the real William Wallace and the character in this film were both exceedingly brave.
Shouldn't be here at all. It's not like he's actually BRAVE, or, or has a HEART or anything. Come on people, get real!
Kinda why the movie is called Braveheart.
He is a murder
She fought against huge odds for the honor of her family.
Highly skilled, well armed international thieves are nothing for McClane, just give him the right size shoes and a machine gun. Ho ho ho.
Same basic story as John Rambo, John Mclane saved everybody's butt in several movies
This character lived through an unspeakably violent and inhumane time, and that is focused on in great detail in the film. A child's incredible brave journey, although the film is certainly not for younger children.
Basically Schwarzenegger's equivalent to John Rambo, Dutch defeated an alien that killed a bunch of his friends.
Tearing apart a town's police force is more than insanely unrealistic; you have to be very gutsy to do that. And much later, he almost saves his niece from being forced into prostituition, and gives the same "all Hell is breaking loose" feel from First Blood
Most of these guys, from what I can tell are fairly recent, but Lucas McCain puts Clint Eastwood to shame (almost)
Nearly every scene in the film including Frodo is a test of his bravery and resolve.
Kill an unbeatable foe who has just killed your master? Check... Take on Grievious and his minions singlehandedly? Childsplay... Cripple and seemingly destroy his beloved apprentice? Heartbreaking, but done... Later, die at the hands of Darth Vader so that others might escape? Easy peasy... Bravery was never an issue with ole' Ben.
He is the master of the high ground
It’s over Anakin. I have the high ground
Exactly. One of the most pivotal moments in the entire franchise. For my taste anyway
Simply ridiculously brave. He continued to follow Frodo even though he had the choice not to.
And saved Frodo's life, on more than one occasion. Sam and Frodo were quite the team. Great and brave characters in a brilliant story with no shortage of heroic protagonists. Just as Aragorn says to the Hobbits at the end "My friends, you bow to no one"...
In my opinion Sam is braver than Frodo. Sam was by Frodo's side the whole way even when Frodo wasn't by his.
Sam vs. Shelob. That took some intestinal fortitude, Samwise Gamgee
I wondered if I should add him, seeing I'm far from an expert on the franchise, but come on, even I know this cat faced an incredible amount of pure evil.
Especially in Rocky IV, since he faced almost certain death. He also has pearls of wisdom.
I mean do I have to explain. Marched into a unwinnable battle just to show Greece that a God King could bleed. Obviously that's not historically accurate, but that's beside the point. - 2storm
Raylan plays dirty, no doubt, but his conviction to clean up his home county from its deep rooted domestic and foreign criminal element is nothing short of heroic.
Sure, he's kind of goofy, to put it mildly, but in a few episodes, he shows his all-seriousness/braveness.
Barney Ross is a bit more of a generic hero than Rambo or Rocky, but brave nontheless
Um... In Ragnorok and all the Avengers movies, he was brave, but in Thor and Thor: The Dark World, not so much. He wasn't a pushover or in any way unbrave, don't get me wrong, but for most of those movies, the biggest threat to him is humans for a long time. "Oh no! HUMANS!" But he gets his redemption in Ragnorok and the Avengers movies, Infinity War in particular.
The sounding like Shakespeare is mainly the director's fault, but I agree.
Marty is brave in a different way than most people I voted for. He can cope with being sent back in time thirty years, forward in time thirty years and later one hundred years. I can't imagine trying to live life as a teen in the early 2000s, much less (in my case) in 1920, 2050, or 1990. (And he does mess with Biff and Mad-Dog pretty easily)
