Top Ten Greatest Movie Characters

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Katniss Everdeen - Jennifer Lawrence Katniss Everdeen - Jennifer Lawrence Katniss Everdeen is a fictional character and the protagonist of The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. She is portrayed by Jennifer Lawrence in the film adaptation franchise.

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

No, No, No and no, why the hell she is the best female character on the list? Beatrix Kiddo (kill Bill) And Ellen Ripley (Alien) are more badass than this girl

22 The Terminator - Arnold Schwarzenegger The Terminator - Arnold Schwarzenegger 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.

What? Why is Sarah Connor higher than the Terminator, Sarah's a good character, but come on, it's the Terminator, I think he should be at least in the Top 10

23 Tuco 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.

24 Harry Potter - Daniel Radcliffe Harry Potter - Daniel Radcliffe Harry James Potter is the title character of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. The majority of the books' plot covers seven years in the life of the orphan Potter, who, on his eleventh birthday, learns he is a wizard.

7 trillion peoples can't be wrong. Harry Potter is a remarkable character because you get to watch him grow from a child to a young man - Vaibhavpbh

I know he originated from a book (fantastic in there) but the portrayal by Daniel Radcliffe was fantastic and he fits the character perfectly and the whole premise of the character and growing up with him and rising up to destiny. He should be higher in my opinion. - idontknow

The boy who lived deserves better than 47th place.

Should at least be in the top 15. - PeeledBanana

25 Kikuchiyo - Toshiro Mifune

Unrelenting emotion and vigor in rags.

26 Freddy Krueger - Robert Englund

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. - birdechosplash

27 Scarlett O'Hara - Vivien Leigh
28 Park 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.

29 Woody - Tom Hanks

One of the best animated characters ever! - PeeledBanana

30 Princess Yuki Akizuki - Misa Uehara

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

31 Luke Skywalker - Star Wars Luke Skywalker - Star Wars Luke Skywalker is a fictional character appearing as the central protagonist of the original film trilogy, and as a supporting character in the sequel trilogy of the Star Wars universe created by George Lucas.

How is he so low? He started off as an ordinary farm boy, and grew with into the last Jedi master! I understand darth Vader being so high, but come on, Luke is way better.

I realize Luke is somewhat under developed compared to other characters on this list, but his current ranking just leaves him criminally under-rated

32 Caesar - Andy Serkis Caesar - Andy Serkis

Great - PeeledBanana

33 Alex de Large - Malcolm McDowell

One of the most terrifying characters of all time

34 Carrie White - Sissy Spacek Carrie White - Sissy Spacek
35 Jason Bourne - Matt Damon
36 Anakin Skywalker - Hayden Christensen Anakin Skywalker - Hayden Christensen

Wow I'm surprised hayden is so high considering everyone hates his acting as anakin, personally I like him as anakin, he was awesome and is my favourite character of all movie characters

Come on the best Star Wars character he is technicolor no.3 but in the dark side

Why the heck is he on this list.

One of the swaggyiest character

37 Charles Foster Kane - Orson Welles

Orson Welles' portrayal of the wealthy business tycoon literally changed cinema more than any other. Citizen Kane is an insane character study, with one of the most interesting, developed, and best characters ever put to fiction. His character arc is so epic and important. Citizen Kane is a masterpiece in every sense of the word. It is such a powerful portrayal of the man and his corruption. He is the most influential character of film, in the most influential film. And he is the the greatest film character of all time, and his story made the greatest film of all time.

38 Agent K - Tommy Lee Jones
39 Veronica Sawyer - Winona Ryder
40 Ellen Ripley - Sigourney Weaver Ellen Ripley - Sigourney Weaver Ellen 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.
