10 Greatest Movie Antiheroes of All Time

I drink it up!
With last week's super-exciting, highly anticipated release of the Sin City 2 trailer, we got to thinking about great antiheroes in film over the years. Certainly Mickey Rourke's Marv comes to mind, along with most other characters in the film that aren't just-plain evil, but we've found 10 more of our favorite all-time goodish, baddish main characters that might make you feel conflicted when you start to root for them.

Daniel Plainview

Years after he first drank that milkshake, Daniel Plainview is still one of the most compelling characters we've seen in movies ever, probably mostly due to Daniel Day-Lewis' stellar performance in There Will Be Blood. Did he just save H.W. because he needed a cute gimmick? How could he have known? And then there's the scene where he beats up that dirt farmer for hitting his little girl, Mary Sunday. He can't be all bad, but he certainly murders enough people with his bare hands to make you wonder. Plus, that whole "bastard in a basket" business was pretty cold.
