I'll contribute three:
First up, its Alan Rickman as terrorist/master criminal Hans Gruber
in Die Hard. Brilliantly portrayed as the cold, ruthless, and calculating
murderer that he is, Hans knows what he wants, and is willing to declare war on the LAPD to get it.
Second, Vin Diesel's best ever character: Richard B Riddick
. Riddick is the best anti hero I have seen since De Niro's Travis Bickle in Taxi
Driver. A lot of people seem to miss what the brilliance of Riddick is: You know he'll be the good guy eventually, but he'll never say that he'll
save you. He'll leave you behind if he has to, and it won't bother him in the slightest.
And finally.... The T1000
. I know a lot of people thought that the first Terminator was good, because it would not stop, and would keep on
coming until either you or it had been destroyed. But the T1000 outdoes the original because it will not die... unless there happens to be an active
steel mill at your disposal. Schwarzenegger may be the original killing machine, but Robert Patrick's virtually invincible killing machine makes
Arnold look like a gun toting fax machine.
