The Twenty-Three Coolest Movie Characters

These are the guys that make you think, "Man, I wish I was as cool as him" when watching their movie. Usually afterwards, you will try something cool that they did in the movie when you are alone or maybe use one of their memorable lines, only to realize it's not cool when you do or say it because you are not cool like them. At all.

23. Tony Montana
I'm not sure what's cool about him. He gets addicted to drugs. He's a terrible dancer. He has a horrible temper. Yet, going down in a firing rage of madness against those who are trying to kill him makes him cool. Who wouldn't want to die that way?

22. Rick Deckard
He's a Blade Runner. He's Harrison Ford. He's a futuristic detective. He's obviously cool.

21. Jules Winnfield
A list of cool people without Samuel L. Jackson is like a retirement home without old ladies who talk to themselves very loudly in the corners. I almost picked his character from XxX... it was a close one.............

20. The Terminator
The good version, of course. He was so cool. He killed bad guys, yet he couldn't be killed. And he spoke Spanish.

19. Jake Giddes
I'm not really sure what makes him so cool. He's not really a great detective. He fought dirty, many times kneeing guys in the nuts, and he had a lot of flaws. Maybe that's what made him so cool though. "Forget it, Jake. It's Chinatown."

18. Michelangelo
Unquestionably the coolest of the Ninja Turtles, this guy could skateboard and eat lots of pizza (with no anchoives, he means it) all while staying true to his ninja ways.

17. Josey Wales
He was an outlaw, but a good-hearted one. You'd be a little angry too if some stupid hicks came and murdered your wife and child and gave you a cool scar across your cheek (which cool scars up coolness by 155%).

16. The Dude
Yeah, the little Lebowski. He didn't care about much, all he wanted was a new rug because his old one was pissed on. He also wore some of the coolest and most attractive outfits a man could ever wear.

15. Marty Mcfly
Well, to be honest, what isn't cool about Marty? He had a hoverboard, he played the guitar, he could travel through time, he went to the wild west, he wore a life preserver, he made out with his mom..........

14. Tyler Durden
He started a fight club, wore an outrageous red leather coat and outfits straight out of the 70s, he made soap from human fat -- yet he was insane amounts of cool. He always had something clever to say, whether it made sense or not, and it made you think, "Hey, this guy is completely nuts, but he's cool." That's all that really matters.

13. Jack Sparrow
Johnny Depp proves once again that he is one of the best current Hollywood actors. And that he's insane. Because he came up with all of that himself. For many reasons unknown, Jack Sparrow is really friggin' cool.

12. The Sundance Kid
Ah, yes, he's all guns. He'll shoot a tin can from a mile away as long as he's allowed to dance a little. Sure, he can't swim, but why do you need to swim when you rob trains for a living? Exactly.

11. John McClane
He dies very hard. It's hard for him to die. He hardly dies, but when he does it's hard. And occasionally with a vegeance.

10. Ash
Yeah, the guy from the Evil Dead Trilogy (you know, Bruce Campbell... Army of Darkness... yeah, that guy). When he lost his hand, did he cry? No, of course not. He did what any cool person would do. He tied a chainsaw to his stubb. "Hail to the king, baby."

9. Peter Venkman
"We've been going about this all wrong. This Mr. Stay Puft's, okay, he's a sailor, he's in New York, we get this guy laid we won't have any trouble."

8. Spider-Man
Yeah, Peter Parker is a huge nerd, but that adds to his overall cool factor. This guy has the powers of a SPIDER! If that doesn't whet your whistle, well, you'll obviously never be as cool as the fellows on this list.

7. Luke Jackson
Ah, yes. Cool Hand Luke. He wasn't incredibly strong. He didn't really talk a whole lot either. He did almost escape a prison camp quite a few times though and always came back after being caught while a smile on his face.

6. James Bond
What would a cool list be without James Bond? Most specifically the Sean Connery version. This guy had different women in every movie (and sometimes every scene). He also shot and blew stuff up, had really nice cars and suits, and his hair always looked nice. That makes him cool.

5. Captain Benjamin Franklin "Hawkeye" Pierce
Yeah, he's from a TV show (since I'm talking about the Alan Alda M*A*S*H* version), but so what... leaving him off a list such as this would be wrong. He made the show. Always funny, always up to no good -- he's who you would want to be if you were in a war.

4. Doc Holliday
Val Kilmer's version, of course. Watch the movie. He's cool. Trust me.

3. Han Solo
Leia: "I love you." Han: "I know."

2. The Man With No Name
He has no name -- or at least he doesn't tell anyone it. That ups his cool points right there. Although sometimes I wonder if maybe he doesn't tell people his name because it's something not so intimidating like Phil or Carl.

1. Indiana Jones
Yeah, this is predictible if you know me or have ever met me or have even seen me, since I am usually found wearing a fedora, leather jacket and carrying my trusty whip pretty much all of the time.

I just don't get the Bruce Campbell thing. I can't for the life of me understand how this guy gets work in the entertainment industry...

Uh, he's not exactly Nicholson in Chinatown. I never did have any stomach for campiness, and that's about all this guy seems good for...
