Bad Assed Movie Characters
Sep 3rd, 2019 at 5:59pm
 
   I was about nine or ten when I first saw Odd Job in Goldfinger.  I was thoroughly impressed.  Ever since I've wanted a hat like that.

So what movie badass impressed you?

It's funny how some threads take off and some don't.  I thought this was a good idea.  Shows what I know.  LOL

I'll throw one out.  Darth Maul.  I totally admit that the movie he was in was far from great.  And he got defeated by a padawan learner, while having the high ground.  But that double-bladed lightsaber was completely badass.

I also chose a star wars character. Emperor Palpatine in the Prequels was awesome.

George Lucas wasted Darth Maul and it's one if his greatest film sins (which is impressive given some of the sins on his list...)

Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) from the "Dirty Harry" series is one of my favourites.

I also like his western movie characters and Walt Kowalski from Gran Torino.

I guess I'm a bit of a Clint Eastwood fan  Grin

jack burton - kurt russel in Big trouble in little china.

snake pliskin.
I like kurt russell.

best badass: john mclaine in die hard. First film where the good guy, kept the bad guys guns !

People don't really remember how action heroes were up to that point.
They never took the bad guys guns - ever !

Love Kurt Russell.

Reminds me of one of the ultimate bad ass characters in a Western:

Val Kilmer as Doc Holiday in Tombstone.
