Top 10 Greatest Action Movie Characters

The Top Ten
1 James Bond (The James Bond Series) Royal Navy Commander James Bond is a fictional character created by British journalist and novelist Ian Fleming in 1953. He is the protagonist of the James Bond series of novels, films, comics and video games.

How is this not number one. I am actually a little shocked he is not automatically one just for being James Bond. Daniel Craig is definitely the best bond.

In recent years, James Bond has evolved a lot from where he once stood. Bond will always be at the top of my list.

2 The Terminator (The Terminator Series) The Terminator (Known as the T-800, or Cyberdyne Systems Model 101) is the titular fictional autonomous cyborg from the Terminator franchise portrayed by both Arnold Schwarzenegger and numerous actor stand-ins digitally overlayed with Schwarzenegger's likeness. more.

The 1st is by far my fave due to how Relentless it is, and it will not cease, until it finds its Target and Terminates It.

I will be back

3 John McClane (The Die Hard Series) John McClane is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Die Hard film series. He is portrayed by Bruce Willis.
4 John Rambo (The Rambo Series) John James Rambo is a fictional character in the Rambo saga. He first appeared in the 1972 novel First Blood by David Morrell, but later became more famous as the protagonist of the film series, in which he was played by Sylvester Stallone.

This is my favorite action character because Stallone has done full justice to it regarding action.
Action couldn't have been better.
Also the unique style of Rambo, being tough, strong, meek and jerk all at the same time. Rambo is a true friend, soldier and a fighting machine.
He deserves the first position.

Bond or Rambo? Talk about tough decisions...

5 Will Turner (Pirates of the Caribbean) William "Will" Turner is a fictional character and main protagonist in the first three Pirates of the Caribbean films.

Will Turner is very strong and beautiful character that got me fascinated forever. He is loyal, brave, dashing and loving. I wish the things went more happy for him. Will Turner, you are the man of my dreams!

I am having a hard time choosing between him and Johnny. Both are great performances in all three films!

Will Turner Made the POTC movies more interesting and Orlando bloom did such a great job!

Amazing character very believably done by the actor (Orlando Bloom)

6 Indiana Jones (The Indiana Jones Series) Dr. Henry Walton "Indiana" Jones, Jr., often shortened to "Indy", is the titular character of the Indiana Jones franchise. Created by George Lucas, Indiana Jones is an archeologist adventurer. His signature fedora and whip have become fixtures in popular culture. Indiana Jones is portrayed by Harrison Ford.
7 Neo (The Matrix Series) Neo is the main protagonist of the Matrix franchise created by the Wachowskis and portrayed by Keanu Reeves.
8 Han Solo (Star Wars) Han Solo is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. In the original film trilogy, Han and his co-pilot, Chewbacca, become involved in the Rebel Alliance which opposes the Galactic Empire. He is primarily portrayed by Harrison Ford. Han Solo served as the focus of the 2018 film Solo: A Star Wars Story, where he is portrayed by Alden Ehrenreich.

Come on people, its Han Solo! If you don't like him than vote for him anyway cause he is great and you can't argue with that.

Best in the in this list!

9 Jason Bourne (The Bourne Series)

Are you kidding me this guy is so badass.

10 Ellen Ripley (Alien Series) Ellen Louise Ripley is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Alien film series played by American actress Sigourney Weaver.

At first I was going to comment that Ellen Ripley should be ranked higher. Then I realised this is exactly where she would be. Nobody would seriously call her the greatest. Now look at those ranked above her. You didn't rank her as the greatest but do you seriously believe any of those pretty boys would be the last one standing at the expense of Ripley? Unless, of course, she decided that was the way it should be.

This heroine made a huge impact in cinematography! She deserves to be in top 3.

The coolest female action character.

The Contenders
11 Max (The Mad Max Series)

Mad Max and Mad Max II are both masterpieces and this character is just awesome
