1. Carl Weathers
APOLLO CREED



Legendary Character from a LEGENDARY Film. I can't think of a more diametric character to any hero ever! All the while remaining likeable!

Heracles's rating:

Average listal rating (563 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating
2. Robert Duvall
COLONEL KILGORE




" You can either surf, or you can fight! "

"You smell that? Do you smell that? Napalm, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that. I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for twelve hours. When it was all over I walked up. We didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' dink body. The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like... victory. Someday this war's gonna end.."

I don't think I need to add to that!

3. Sylvester Stallone
LINCOLN HAWK



What can I say; The whole point of this character was that he could arm wrestle. Before breaking rivals arms with pure strength he dazzled them with his name!
Heracles's rating:

Average listal rating (618 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating
4. Matthew McConaughey
LT. VAN ZAN



I HATE HATE HATE HATE McCONAUGHEY But Denton Van Zan is so legendary he can't be ruled out.

Sure he sacrifices himself needlessly but who gives a shit. The final leap is historic!

5. Anthony Ray Parker
DOZER



Despite being written out of the next two matrices, I still yearn for the nickname of DOZER!!!!

Average listal rating (17 ratings) 5.5  IMDB Rating
6. Leo Gregory
BOVVA



Green Street's BOVVA is a complete legendary name in this film. Loathing, Hate, Thugishness, Trouble and Awkwardness summed up in his name!
Heracles's rating:

Average listal rating (1729 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating
7. Keanu Reeves
JOHNNY UTAH



I don't think you have a soul if you don't appreciate Point Break in some way. This was Keanu before he was sulky and depressed. Great casting and a great name!

Classic, the combination of Bon Voyage and a Bomber! WHO KNEW!
Heracles's rating:

BENNY BLANCO 'from da Bronx'



I love this film, I hate this character, I love this name!

An immortal character in an immortal Film1!!

In a recent stint of movie watching mania it occurred to me that there have been some purely inspirational character names, here is a list of ten of my favourite sobriquets, ranks & birth rites the silver screen has slipped into our subconsciousness.

Not that I care personally, but I think that last one is quite a major spoiler to those who haven't seen the film.

Shit Good Point Doc.

I always thought it was a toss up whether you were Butch Meathook or Brick Bazooka from Small Soldiers myself!
Posted: 4 years, 4 months ago at Apr 13 21:23
Don't forget Phil Fimple.
Posted: 4 years, 4 months ago at Apr 13 21:29
Isn't Meathook black? Any word with Brick or Bazooka in is synonymous with my name.
Posted: 4 years, 4 months ago at Apr 13 21:32
Thats why you should be Meathook.
