Top Ten Most Realistic CGI Characters In MoviesThis list compiles the most impressive computer-generated characters ever to grace the big screen with their presence.
The Top Ten
To this day, over twelve years after the release of 'The Two Towers', WETA Digital's perfectly crafted Gollum remains one of the most realistic computer-generated characters ever to appear on screen.
My favorite Motion Capture Performance
Played by the CGI legend himself
How did they manage to make him look so percise
All of the apes in planet of the apes look like they actually could exist in this world.
The motion capture in 2011's 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' was impressive but the effects were downright unbelievable once the 2014 sequel came around.
Yes Godzilla looks like a real creature in Godzilla and king of the monsters as well
Nighy, himself, has been forced to tell numerous interviewers that the special effects used to create his appearance in 'Dead Man's Chest' and 'At World's End' were not made up of latex appliances or makeup of any kind. In truth, not even his actual eyes were used. It was all computer, baby.
Woah, didn't know that at all!
This marks the third addition to this list that has featured a character played by the Mo-Cap master, Andy Serkis. After playing the mightiest of monkeys (technically apes, I know) in this film, he was selected as the obvious choice to portray the lead in the current 'Planet of the Apes' series (2011-).
Please, you can't be serious with this one.
When 1993's 'Jurassic Park' came out, nothing of that scale had ever been attempted. Evenly mixed with giant puppets and animatronics, the dinos all look mind-blowingly real, even to this day. Let's hope the trend is continued with the upcoming fourth installment, 'Jurassic World'.
Every member of the Na'vi is equally ultra-realistic, of course. But no one matches the energy and radiance (not to mention screen time) of Neytiri.
There has to be over a million separate parts within every one of those CGI models. And each part looks as convincing as the others.
Needs to be higher on the list! She’s so perfect and gorgeous, sorry Goji
When motion the CGI Yoda from the revenge of the sith still rivals most CGI today
Awesome and should be higher!
The 2003 film was way too rubbery-looking, and the 2008 film's Hulk was a little boney-looking, to be honest. Well, after nine years and three movies of trying, we were finally given the Hulk we always wanted in 2012's 'The Avengers'. And soon we'll get to see more of the lovable green brute in 2015's 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'.
While the entire movie was made up of impressive CGI visuals and motion-capture performances, Angelina's memorable appearance as the evil temptress was, perhaps, the most stunningly realistic element of them all.
What's written above looks like a weird 70's-80's pop band, doesn't it? Anyways, 'I, Robot' features the perfect blend of action, science-fiction, suspense, and (of course) freaky, translucent, E.T. -chested, punchy, ninja robots!
