Poll: Big screen berserkers

Which of these characters (from theatrical films) had the most interesting outburst of berserker* rage?

*berserkers were ancient Norse warriors, known for the ability to get into uncontrollable rage before battle, which allowed them to fight with great strength and bloodlust, while also giving them immunity to fear and pain (thus giving rise to a modern term 'to go berserk')
