Top That of The Day is running a Tournament of Bad Ass Movie Characters March Madness style.
The 4 #1 Seeds are:
William Wallace, Braveheart
Bryan Mills, Taken
John McClane, Die Hard
and Jason Bourne from the Bourne Trilogy
Top Hat basically nailed it with this bracket, and I don’t see anyway in which William Wallace doesn’t take this down. Tough to compare the 4 Number Ones from all different eras of human badassness, but William Wallace was more than an assassin tough guy
He was a Leader of Men. Robert the Bruce said it best:
“Those men who bled the ground red at Falkirk, they fought for William Wallace…This Wallace, he doesn’t even have a knighthood. But he fights, with passion, and he inspires”
He also crushed bitches skulls after riding up in their bedrooms on a horse at night, and vagina panties hit the floor when he spit game in French, Latin and Italian. Motherfucker sacked York for Gods Sake.
And last time I checked, Jason Bourne had amnesia, Bryan Mills is left at the airport like a chump while the step dad cruises off with his daughter, and John McClane woulda never survived if Zeus didn’t save his ass in Harlem. Three very bad ass things FSN.
Anyway, check back in to see who takes the Crown.
If I were to throw a few missing names into the ring, I’d have to go with
Rocky: Specifically Rocky IV. Defending Apollo’s Honor against the indestructible Drago is FS Badass.
Vincenzo Cocotti from True Romance – “I’m the Anti-Christ. You got me in a vendetta kind of mood. You tell the angels in heaven you never seen evil so singularly personified as you did in the face of the man who killed you.”
If you have never seen True Romance, you need to visit the FSKY Jungle. It’s without a doubt one of the best movies ever, and along with Christopher Walken’s character, there are about 4 or 5 other characters who could be in this field of 65.
For Sure Bad Ass Tournament
