Top Ten Greatest Movie Characters

1. Indiana Jones

Dr. Indiana Henry Jones, Jr. (born July 1, 1899), also known as Indy, is a fictional professor, archaeologist, and adventurer - the main protagonist of the 1981 adventure film Raiders of the Lost Ark (later retitled Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark), its prequel Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and sequels Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Jones is notable for his trademark bullwhip, fedora, leather jacket, and fear of snakes. He is also the son of Professor Henry Jones, Sr. In his younger days, Henry, Jr. was in the Boy Scouts, and that is where he found a love of Archaeology, trying to recover the Cross of Coronado from people whom he suspected to be grave robbers. It was later found that those gentlemen had the land and its caves fair and square. During the ensuing chase, Indy Develops his fear of Snakes and quickly masters a Bull-whip as he goes face to face with a Lion on a circus train. Later, Dr. Henry Jones Jr. would recover the Cross of Coronado from the same man and donate it to a museum as an important historic artifact (in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade). Indiana Jones and Marion Ravenwood Williams has a son named Henry Jones III (a.k.a. Mutt Williams).

2. James Bond

Fleming portrayed Bond as a tall, athletic, handsome secret agent in his thirties or forties; he has several vices including drinking, smoking, gambling, automobiles and women. He is an exceptional marksman, and skilled in unarmed combat, skiing, swimming and golf. While Bond kills without hesitation or regret, he usually kills only when carrying out orders, while acting in self-defence and occasionally as revenge.

3. Star Wars' Han Solo

Han Solo was a Human smuggler from the manufacturing planet Corellia who achieved galactic fame as a member of the Rebel Alliance and later the New Republic. Born on Corellia, he was orphaned at an early age and taken by the pirate Garris Shrike to serve on his crew. He was treated cruelly, and served Shrike for many years before escaping while in his teens. Solo became a smuggler, and fell in love with Bria Tharen, though she left him due to her duties to the Rebel Alliance. Solo then entered the Imperial Academy at Carida, serving with distinction. He was kicked out, however, when he stopped an Imperial officer from beating a Wookiee named Chewbacca with a neuronic whip for resisting capture. In gratitude, the Wookiee swore a life debt to Solo, protecting him with his life. He became a smuggler once again, with Chewbacca at his side. Piloting the upgraded and customized Millennium Falcon, which he won in a game of Sabacc against Lando Calrissian, his future ally, he became known as one of the best smugglers in the galaxy.

4. Batman

Batman's secret identity is Bruce Wayne, an American billionaire, business magnate, and philanthropist. Having witnessed the murder of his parents as a child, he swore revenge on criminals, an oath tempered with a sense of justice. Wayne trains himself both physically and intellectually and dons a bat-themed costume to fight crime. Batman operates in the fictional Gotham City, assisted by various supporting characters including his butler Alfred Pennyworth, his crime-fighting partner Robin, the police commissioner Jim Gordon, and occasionally the heroine Batgirl. He fights a large assortment of villains, often referred to as Batman's "rogues gallery", which includes the Joker, the Penguin, Two-Face, the Riddler, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze, Ra's al Ghul, Poison Ivy, the Scarecrow and Bane. Unlike most superheroes, Batman does not possess any superpowers; he makes use of intellect, martial arts skills, physical prowess, detective skills, science and technology, wealth, provocation of fear and intimidation, and an indomitable will in his continuous war on crime.

5. Alien's Ellen Ripley

Ellen Ripley is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Alien film series played by American actress Sigourney Weaver. She is often considered as one of the best female protagonists of all time: it was heralded for challenging gender roles, particularly in the science fiction, action and horror genres, gave world recognition to Weaver and remains her most famous role to date.

6. The Joker

The Joker is a supervillain and the archenemy of Batman. He is a master criminal with a clown-like appearance, initially portrayed as a violent sociopath who murders people for his own amusement. That's why he is number 6 on my list.

7. Die Hard's John McClane

John McClane, Sr. (born May 23, 1955 in Plainfield, New Jersey) is an Irish American detective lieutenant with the New York City Police Department and the main protagonist of the Die Hard film series. He is portrayed by Bruce Willis. He also briefly worked for the Los Angeles Police Department. He has been a police officer since 1977. He is separated from his wife, Holly Gennero McClane, who is using her maiden name. Holly moved to Los Angeles several months earlier to pursue a career that John ultimately thought would fail, leading to their separation. Together, they have two children, Lucy and John Jr..

8. Fight Club's Tyler Durden

Tyler Durden is The Narrator's split personality. He was created by the perfect storm of the Narrator's insomnia-induced insanity and his frustration with a hollow life of wage-slavery and consumerism. He is the manifestation of the completely free person the Narrator wishes he could be.

9. Star Wars' Darth Vader

The character was created by George Lucas and has been portrayed by numerous actors. His appearances span all six Star Wars films, and he is an important character in the expanded universe of television series, video games, novels, literature and comic books. Originally a Jedi prophesied to bring balance to the Force, he falls to the dark side of the Force and serves the evil Galactic Empire at the right hand of his Sith master, Palpatine (also known as Darth Sidious). He is also the father of Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa.

10. The Big Lebowski's The Dude

A man who fits in perfectly with 1991, Jeffery "The Dude" Lebowski is an easygoing guy who goes bowling with his friends, Walter and Donny, every so often and enjoys a good White Russian. While his taste in decorating leaves something to be desired, he does have a rug that "ties the room together" and will go to great lengths if anything is done to it.
