The Top Ten

1 James Bond - James Bond Series James Bond - 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 can you argue against 007? He is just too good, he could fill this entire list.

2 Indiana Jones - Raiders of the Lost Ark Indiana Jones - Raiders of the Lost Ark Dr. Henry Walton "Indiana" Jones, Jr., often shortened to "Indy", is the title character of the Indiana Jones franchise.

I adore his character - iliekpiez

3 Han Solo - Star Wars Han Solo - Star Wars Han Solo is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed in films by Harrison Ford. In the original film trilogy, Han and his co-pilot, Chewbacca, become involved in the Rebel Alliance which opposes the Galactic Empire.

Han Solo is the rebel of the galaxy. Whether he shot first or not he's just awesome. I mean come on. He's so cool that he can date his bet friend's sister and he doesn't care. We all love him and he knows.

I loved him. My favorite line was 'I can arrange that' after Princess Leia said 'I'd rather kiss a Wookie'.

4 Will Turner - Pirates of the Caribbean 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 by far the most heroic character Orlando Bloom has played. And the fact that his wife stayed faithful to him is an added bonus. Also the fact that his son saved him. I guess the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree.

5 John McClane - Die Hard Series John McClane - Die Hard Series John McClane is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Die Hard film series. He is portrayed by Bruce Willis.
6 Rocky Balboa - Rocky Series Rocky Balboa - Rocky Series
7 Ellen Ripley - Alien Ellen Ripley - Alien Ellen Louise Ripley is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Alien film series played by American actress Sigourney Weaver.
8 Ash - Evil Dead
9 Oskar Schindler - Schindler's List
10 Clarice Starling - The Silence of the Lambs

the best thing about starling (besides that shes hot) is that she has a backstory that explains the reason for her crusade

The Contenders

Throughout the films you start to wonder why he couldn't fight this war himself. I mean, he can take down a giant elephant without a beat of sweat on his forehead. He's just so perfect.

15 Spider-Man - Spider-Man Spider-Man - Spider-Man Spider-Man is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics existing in its shared universe.

16 Gandhi - Gandhi
17 The Bride - Kill Bill
18 Wesley Gibson - Wanted

You can't get more heroic then Wesley Gibson (James McAvoy) disposing of a warehouse full of bad guys including the worst of the worst, Sloan (Morgan Freeman)

19 Aragorn - Lord of the Rings Aragorn - Lord of the Rings Aragorn II, the son of Arathorn II and Gilraen, is a fictional character from J. R. R.

Aragorn may have no political background, but he does give out some truly moving speeches.

20 Agent J - Men in Black Agent J - Men in Black 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.

22 Martin Riggs - Lethal Weapon Series
23 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.

I HATE it when Luke is overshadowed by Han.
Come on people!

24 John H. Miller - Saving Private Ryan
25 T.E. Lawrence - Lawrence of Arabia
26 James T. Kirk - Star Trek Franchise

Number thirty-four? As much as I love Will Turner in the top five, this guy should be in the top ten. I've not seen Chris Pine in action, but William Shatner is pretty dang good.

Whoops. My bad. Twenty-seven.

Bilbo started out as someone who wouldn't go on an adventure for all the gold in Erebor. (No pun intended) Then he evolved into a great hero who would die for his friends, and he pretty much saves everyone in Thorin's company without any thought of himself.

41 Sgt. Nicholas Angel - Hot Fuzz
