In my last blog post, I wrote about the villains on the American Film Institute’s list of 100 Heroes & Villains. This week’s post focuses on the heroes. It is easy to imagine that all heroes in movies fly around in capes and tights, saving the world with superpowers and fancy equipment, but that isn’t always the case. Often, the hero is a regular person working against extraordinary odds to stand up for what they believe is right. Most heroes aren't perfect, but it is their flaws that make them interesting.
Do you agree with the 50 heroes AFI picked, or was your favorite left out?
