What makes an antihero cool? Well, they’re usually pretty multi-dimensional. They possess villainous qualities, yes, but there are usually complex reasons behind their madness. And for all the devilish things they do, you often can’t help but root for them. Hollywood has given movie lovers some awesome antihero characters, but who are the best antiheroes in film?

Movie antiheroes (and some villains – we as a society do like our bad boys) are often more memorable than the hero. Travis Bickle (Robert DeNiro in Taxi Driver), Michael Corleone (Al Pacino in The Godfather Trilogy), Jimmy “Popeye” Doyle (Gene Hackman in The French Connection), The Man With No Name (Clint Eastwood in Sergio Leone's Dollars Trilogy), and Jim Stark (James Dean in Rebel Without A Cause) are all legendary and iconic film characters that have influenced and impressed the world over. They all also happen to be anti heroes.

This list of the greatest anti-hero film characters ranks these great characters who, despite their notable lack of what we usually describe as "heroic" traits, are nonetheless the heroes of their stories.
