Although we already a week in 2016, I still wanted to look back on all the awesome movie characters the year 2015 gave us. Here are my five favorites.
5. Rick Ford (Jason Statham in “Spy”)
We all know now that Jason Statham isn’t just an action hero and that he can also be funny. In “Spy” he takes it to another level. He is hilarious and he is the best part of “Spy”.
4. Baymax (Scott Adsit in “Big Hero 6”)
Disney’s new star, Baymax was the best element of “Big Hero 6”. A perfect combo of best friend, doctor and warrior machine. Fist bump!
3. Mark Watney (Matt Damon in “The Martian”)
Matt Damon’s enormously likeable Mark Watney has no option but to get on with things. This is exactly the role that shows us why Damon is such a good actor and why we love him too.
2. Rey (Daisy Ridley in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”)
What a great new character in the “Star Wars” universe. I loved her from the start and I loved everything about her character.
1. Furiosa (Charlize Theron in “Mad Max: Fury Road”)
Talking about a strong female character. Charlize Theron kicks ass as Furiosa and “Mad Max: Fury Road” is actually her movie, she dominated the film.
They Almost Made the Top 5: Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson in “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation”), Ava (Alicia Vikander in “Ex Machina”), Sadness (Phyllis Lapin in “Inside Out”), Harry Hart (Colin Firth in “Kingsman: The Secret Service”), Riggan Thompson (Michael Keaton in “Birdman”)
