Top Ten Most Unlikable Movie ProtagonistsPLEASE READ: I thought about making this list HQ but I feel if I give too much details, I’ll be kinda spoiling the movie for those who haven’t seen it. So please do the same if you decide to add and / or comment on this list. Please be kinda vague about it to not spoil the movie for others. Thanks.
Played by Leonardo DiCaprio. Released in 2013.
Corrupt, selfish, no morals and a slimy liar. The gross thing is some people actually look up to this character.
That's the whole point of him. Great list, and another reason why DiCaprio is my favourite actor is this outstanding performance
I haven't watched this movie but honestly I kind of guessed that.
Played by Jesse Eisenberg. Released in 2010.
Unlikable in real life. What makes you think he'd be better in the movie right? Scumbag weasel.
Played by Daniel Day-Lewis. Released in 2007.
A bully, ruthless, cold and moral-less in the pursuit of wealth.
Played by Jake Gyllenhaal. Released in 2014.
No morals, no soul, no compassion, no empathy. Terrible human being. I would of slugged this dude so many times during the movie. Funny thing is he is based on a real, kinda famous, scumbag stringer from over here (Los Angeles). The real guy he's based on is also a completely disgusting human being.
Played by Harvey Keitel. Released in 1992.
Corrupt, violent, lying, perverted pedo, junkie thug bully.
Played by Orson Welles. Released in 1941.
Horrible cold human being who I felt no compassion for in the end.
Played by Malcolm McDowell. Released in 1971.
Actually start to feel kind of bad for him towards the end then I remember all the things he did and feel conflicted.
On second thought - How is he in Space Jam 2 yet Pepe Le Pew is gone?
Played by Thora Birch. Released in 2001.
Condescending, pretentious snob. I actually knew a girl just like her. I couldn't stand her.
Played by Robert De Niro. Released in 1976.
I actually feel bad for at times being that he's obviously mentally ill and suffering from PTSD.
Worst anime protagonist in history.
Just plain selfish, not to mention ends up breaking a well-established rule from the first movie (and this is never addressed).
Played by Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner. Released in 1989.
Funny moments but both are horrible people.
This character is a psychopath, who kicks a guy in the balls just for saying she can't dance and pushes Gina Gershon's character down the stars which could've (and should've) killed her. Honestly, all of the characters in Showgirls are douchebags, but since Nomi Malone is the main character, all of the other characters (expect Andrew Carver) are just a little more likable.
Way worse than Oscar from Shark Tale.
An incredibly manipulative sociopath who is easily the least likable and relatable protagonist in any Studio Ghibli film.
She is literally a stalker. A STALKER. I've never really understood movie reviewers and their "unlikeable protagonists" until I watched this movie. She stalks this boy in her school, and literally JUMPS OFF A SCHOOL BALCONY to confront two bullies who are gossiping him. At a point later in the movie she's crying on the floor saying "I just want to hear him say... I love you." I would normally feel sorry for her in this situation. But here? No.
