#8 – John McClane
McClane, played by Bruce Willis, is the central character of the Die Hard film series. A reluctant hero and a rather disobedient member of the New York City Police Department, he nonetheless single-handedly takes out a group of terrorists one by one as they plan to steal $640 million in bonds from the Nekatomi Plaza in the first instalment of the series. The film culminates in McCLane flinging the leader of the terrorist group out of a 30th floor window following an almighty battle between the two. This guy is hardcore!
