CRAIG'S 100 MOVIE HEROES - 100 - 51

Hello everyone, it's been a while since I made a list but thankfully I can say that I've finally got through one of my favourite lists of this overall series with the Heroes and Villains category. In film, there are many situations where without a good guy or a bad guy, the film would probably not be remembered well. There have been hundreds of contenders and luckily I was able to cut both lists down to 100 worthy characters *EACH*. Starting with the first 50 Heroes on the Top 100 Heroes list, some of these characters could have been higher on other lists but I have chosen to keep some of them restricted to this part of the list. From bad-ass cops and robots to superheroes and even the odd couple of old boys, I present the first part of my heroes list, I am sure you will be entertained!
