I just watched The Godfather again last night, and I decided that Sonny Corleone is probably the most badass character of all time. Which got me thinking about other movie badasses. So hey, top five list time:

1. Sonny Corleone - The Godfather
2. Inspector Tequila - Hard Boiled
3. John Mcclaine - Die Hard
4. Jules Winfield - Pulp Fiction
5. Bullettooth Tony - Snatch

Honerable Mention: Cameron Poe - ConAir

SONNY Corelone is not the Godfather. VITO Corelone is. SONNY is Michael's brother. He was the ‘Don’ for a while after Vito amost dies, but never the Godfather.


Oh, and DIRTY HARRY, ftw. ;)

Ah, my mistake. Well, I'd just disagree then. Sonny was certainly the most violet and impulsive. But people that think their badassness through first are always more badassier. ;)

Yes, thank you.


I didn't forget Tony Montona, I just didn't think he made my top 5.
Clint Eastwood I did forget though. The Man With No Name definately bumps Bullettooth Tony off my list

Bullettooth Tony is SO badass, guy emptys a revolver into him, and he pulls out a sword and says “now you're in trouble”

SO BADASS

Dirty Harry absolutely.

Totally agree on Bullet Tooth Tony, too! I love that actor! :D

The T1000 from T2 was pretty badass and might make a good addition…and Gary Oldman's Stansfield from The Professional…“Bring me everyone.”

Could Tony Montana really be classified as a bad-ass? Sure he built an empire by himself and his ruthless tactics, but before that final fight, before he went down in the flurry of bullets. He was a deeply troubled man.

Gene Hackman.

He totally hung from a door, twisting the wheel of it using only sheer muscle and gravity in a room full of fire in the bottom of an upside down cruise ship in The Poseidon Adventure. I see no other badass.

Aw, no way… Old school for me; Conan. There are no others. He comes back from the dead and kills a demigod.
I luf him… He so sexi in his fur undies! ^^
-Jame Earl Jones was pretty amazing as Thulsa Doom (best name ever) in the same movie, and as Darth Vader! (even those that was really Frank Prowse…)

Kirk Douglas is pretty cool too… Can't remember his characters, but they're all pretty awesome dudes… Spartacus? I am he!

Hackman was great in The Package.

“I eat green berets for breakfast. And right now I'm very hungry.” a Schwarzenegger quotwe from the movie ‘Commando’ XD

And yeah, Bullet Tooth Tony is the sh*t

He doesn't chop people in half the long way with a sword.

Plus, if you watch *real* martial arts films as much as I do, Kill Bill is just silly.

The only somewhat redeeming quality of that movie was that sonny chiba was in it, and he's awesome.

Thats another great movie badass Sonny Chiba as Terry Surugi from The Street Fighter
