Special Features - The Greatest Action Movie Douchebags

2 March 2012 6:42 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe presents a selection of the action genre's greatest douchebags...

Cinema has created many wonderful characters over the years. We’ve had classic heroes, and the most heinous of villains. Heroes and villains are particularly paramount in the action genre.

This list, therefore, is designed to highlight 10 of Hauer’s finest non-Blade Runner movies, with a particular emphasis on those that are lesser known – which is why we've gone for some older pictures rather than the more recent and mainstream, such as Batman Begins. And since this is Den of Geek, expect to find lots of action movies, horror, and low-budget sci-fi in the entries below.

One thing they all have in common, though, irrespective of »
