Top Ten Greatest Movie Characters

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Aragorn - Viggo Mortensen Aragorn - Viggo Mortensen Aragorn II, son of Arathorn is a fictional character from J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium. He is one of the main protagonists of The Lord of the Rings. V 2 Comments
22 Agent J - Will Smith Agent J - Will Smith Agent J is a fictional MIB agent in the film Men in Black, its sequels Men in Black II and Men in Black 3, and Men in Black: The Series.

You know the difference between you and me? I make this look good.

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 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

25 Kikuchiyo - Toshiro Mifune

Unrelenting emotion and vigor in rags.

26 Bane - Tom Hardy
27 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

28 Woody - Tom Hanks
29 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.

30 Princess Yuki Akizuki - Misa Uehara

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

31 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.

32 Sherlock Holmes - Robert Downey Jr.

I would argue that Robert Downey Jr is more charismatic than Benedict Cumberbatch. Which is why his Sherlock is more entertaining.

No girl wants to marry a doctor who can't tell if a man's dead or not!

33 Jason Voorhees - Kane Hodder Jason Voorhees - Kane Hodder Jason 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

34 Edward Scissorhands - Johnny Depp
35 John McClane - Bruce Willis John McClane - Bruce Willis John McClane is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Die Hard film series. He is portrayed by Bruce Willis.
36 Alex de Large - Malcolm McDowell

One of the most terrifying characters of all time

37 Michael Corleone - Al Pacino Michael Corleone - Al Pacino Michael Corleone is the main character in Mario Puzo's novel The Godfather and the three films based upon it, all directed by Francis Ford Coppola.

Michael Corleone should ranked far higher than 18. He is one of the greatest characters in cinematic history. He was the don.

38 Raj Malhotra - Shahrukh Khan

Most popular Indian movie character

Definitely none of these Hollywood junkies would know about this character.
Shahrukh, is the best. - itsflashbuddy

39 Anakin Skywalker - Hayden Christensen Anakin Skywalker - Hayden Christensen

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

40 Mycroft 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.
