Who doesn’t want to be saved by their favorite movie hero? Whether you are male or female, we’ve all dreamed it at some point. It’s a common fantasy that stems from our love of these characters who risk their lives saving others for the greater good or strive to reach some seemingly unobtainable goal. In this day and age, heroes come in all shapes and sizes. They can be young, old, tall, short, skinny, muscular, or any one of these combinations. Attribute-wise, they can be fast, strong, powerful, smart, or just have plain common-sense.
While ideal heroes may be flawless and represent some version of ourselves that we strive to be like, there are those who are flawed and shouldn’t be seen as role-models. But we love the latter kind of hero anyway because despite their questionable actions, they either ultimately have good intentions or were driven to do bad things because of a tragic backstory. This in turn makes them more sympathetic and relatable than the idyllic hero, which is why we’ve seen a rising popularity in the ‘antihero’ character in various media including movies. What we’d like to know is who your favorite movie heroes are in order to determine which one is most likely to save you!
