We can only root for goody two-shoes for so long. Sometimes, we're just longing for movie heroes who were - or are - criminals. And we aren't merely talking about protagonists who are genuinely bad guys (Walter White wouldn't make this list, for example), but main characters we can legitimately define as heroic. These are people who, when push comes to shove, do the right thing... but they also have a bit of a mean streak in them.
Some of these characters are incarcerated, like Escape from New York's Snake Plissken and Brawl in Cell Block 99's Bradley Thomas, while others are antiheroes who skirt the line between good and evil, like Drive's protagonist and the Fast & Furious franchise's Dom Toretto. And don't worry, iconic characters like Han Solo and Jack Sparrow are here, too. Beware of spoilers and vote up your favorite criminals that have a moral code to go along with their more felonious actions.
