Exclusive Cool Video: Top 10 Characters Out For Revenge

03.13.2015

When you think about revenge movies, you may think of all three TAKEN films. Or maybe you are more into the cult-themed flicks and are reminded of Uma Thurman in KILL BILL or Brandon Lee in THE CROW. Or, you could go all the way back to the immortal Charles Bronson in DEATH WISH. Whatever your favorite, revenge movies have a special place in Hollywood.

From the schlocky to the Oscar nominated, revenge is a guttural human instinct that we can all relate to. Avenging our loved ones or defeating all sorts of evil are things we all want to do. But, as an old saying goes, bad men do what good men dream. With that in mind, here is our video countdown of some of the best characters bent on revenge in film history.

And, if you are in the mood for a new revenge flick, check out RUN ALL NIGHT, which is now playing.

Never understand the fondness for remakes.

As has already been mentioned the original 'Cape Fear' with Robert Mitchum as Max Cady is the boss and 'Payback' is a needless remake of a much better film called 'Point Blank' starring Lee Marvin.

Wow. No Jack Carter?

Get Carter is the ultimate, pinnacle tale of revenge. 1971, of course. For shame, Joblo. For shaaaame.

There are plenty of worthy additions.....

listed below that should have been included but what would you expect of a list that rates De Niro and Nolte over the Peck and Mitchum version let alone one that relegates Paul Kersey to number 8. And you would think that nobody has heard of High Plains Drifter either. Very weak list, indeed

Decent list, but missing is Ben-Hur, Mad Max, Braveheart, Munich, Sweeney Todd, and Memento

What about Jaws in "Jaws: The Revenge"? I mean this shark swam all the way from New England to the Bahamas to avenge all the sharks the Brody family destroy. He pulled off Sean Brody's limbs, gave Chief Brody a heart attack, and now wants to finish the job. That is one shark pissed off shark who needs serious therapy. LOL
This list was missing Judah Ben-Hur in "Ben-Hur", Max in "Mad Max", William Wallace in "Braveheart", Israeli team of assassins in "Munich". Sweeney Todd in "Sweeney Todd The

Mad Max

MAD MAX is the ultimate avenger. Followed by Josey Wales. And Khan (Wrath of Khan)

In fact, Mel Gibson's entire filmography could fill out this top ten list, as revenge is a dish best served by Gibson!

Where is Count Of Monte Cristo?? Every revenge story owes its existence to the book and the 2002 movie is one of my favorites of all time. Oldboy even references it!!

The Crow is my favorite film but this list is still quite weak. I advise Alex Maidy to do more homework. Films like Straw Dogs, I Spit On Your Grave, Ms. 45, Sweet Karma, I Saw The Devil are some films far more worthy to be mention then the films in the list.
