Top 10 Movie Characters Of All Time

10. Vito Corleone

“A man that doesn’t spend time with his family can never be a real man.” Vito Corleone


Played By: Marlon Brando


Film: The Godfather

Why He’s On The List: A wonderful performance by Brando, the kind of quality that is expected from him. A hate love character – a man that is so incredibly dedicated to his family he is willing to do anything, yes anything, to protect them. This quality almost makes us overlook that fact that he is actually the head of a mafia crime family – a massive criminal empire. There is also a nice parallel in the role in the sense that the ‘old man’ gives love and guidance to a collection of next generation stars – Pacino,  Caan, Cazale, Shire and Duvall. Marlon Brando has always been the face of The Godfather, and always will be.

Finest Hour: Upon his retirement, giving great advice to  Michael about how all of his enemies will move around him.
