I'm not on about actors and actresses doing a 'tough person role' here, I'm talking about the actual toughest 'Characters' in the movie world.
The kind of Character that feels so real, you wouldn't pick a fight with in a bar in real life.

Here's mine:

#5: 'Tom Mullen' played by Mel Gibson in the movie Ransom.
Overcoming and bravely standing in, an incredibly compromising situation and beating the odds, to save the life of his kidnapped son, then takes on the kidnapper single handed.

#4: 'Ellen' played by Sharon Stone in The Quick And The Dead.
An uncompromising, but not emotionless woman, who overcomes her inner fear of failure, to get justice for her father's murder against a town full of cowards and dangerous gunslingers.

#3: 'Billy' played by Sonny Landham in Predator.
A Marine, a successful Marine, who is "Afraid of no man". Then faces the Predator while armed with only a machete.
Need I say more?

#2: 'John McClane' played by Bruce Willis in the Die Hard saga.
A tough cop with a past, able to adjust to any given situation and does whatever possible to stay alive and bring the bad guys to justice, all at the same time.

My number #1 is: 'Dillon' played by Charles S Dutton in the movie Alien3.
A murderer who reluctantly takes on the role of group leader in an unusually dangerous situation.
He even says "I'll f*ck you" and shouts "Is this as hard as you bite, Motherf*cker?!" as the Alien is tearing him apart!
Now that's tough!


So...

... what are your top five?

#5 Quint, from Jaws

Lives through the wreck of the Indianapolis, hunts sharks for a living, only killed when a 25 foot great white shark pole vaults onto his boat and after fighting it with a machete.

#4 John Matrix, from Commando

Special Forces soldier who retires to live with his daughter in the woods. She gets kidnapped, he kills everyone.

#3 "Dirty" Harry Callahan

Owner of more catchphrases than you've had hot dinners. One-hands a .44 S&W and dispatches whoever the hell breaks the law.

#2 "Mad" Max Rockatansky

Former cop gone rogue after the death of his wife and son at the hands of a gang of motorcycle crazies. Kills all of them then embarks upon a post-apocalyptic career of journeys and death in his black Pursuit Special

#1 "Man With No Name" from Yojimbo

Rarely shows any emotion; the inspiration for Clint Eastwood's portrayal of badassness, the Ronin With No Name is so awesome that he dupes two gangs into nearly annihilating each other, escapes a near death beating, and takes out the last of the gang in a Western-style showdown, even though one of the gang members has a pistol and RWNN has a friggin knife. Upon completion, he tells the sheriff to go hang himself and strolls out of the town, seemingly not bothered.

LOL LOVE this thread already. but I would have to compliment (or object) your "billy" decision with this;

'Blain' played by Jesse Ventura.
This guy is soooo busy being bad-ass, that he doesn't even have enough time to bleed. He is also know as a "god-damn sexual tyrannosaur."

Bill the Butcher - Daniel Day-Lewis in "Gangs of New York" is both my favorite movie villain and the most bad ass. Passionate, ruthless, and he cut out his own eye after being shamed by his rival. All round bad ass. He also has the best outfits ever.

I don't have the time now to come up with a full list. I'll do that later.

First character that comes to mind is Mel Gibson's character "Porter" in Payback.

Classic badass.

I don't know all of the movies on this list, but #5 on their list (Shaft) has to be mentioned.

S'up, Walker? I'm around, just finally learned to keep my mouth shut! That, and it's been a bitch finding time to brew.
