In your opinion, what is the best character to ever be featured in film?

My choice would be Col. Hans Landa of the SS. Written for the film "Inglorious Basterds", which if you haven't seen I demand that you go watch the film at one. The character is so complex and bone-chillingly evil though he never does it in a cliche or "cartoony" way. The entire time he commits his evil acts he seems to have a genuine feel of politeness and kindness to him, but we all know that it is mostly a ruse.

Hans Landa was pretty cool, I agree. But he's nothing compared to the Kurgan

apparently Leonardo DiCaprio almost played Hans Landa, but Tarantino changed his mind and decided he had to cast someone who spoke German. thank god.

anyway, here's another good character.

All the favorites I could think of off the top of my head were pretty obvious, so I'm not gonna post them all. Instead, I'll just say Lope de Aguirre and leave you with this:

Any character that Clint Eastwood plays is an instant classic. From The Man with No Name, to Walt from Gran Tarino.

I think it is Rose from the Silent Hill movie, maybe its just cause that is the most badass horror movie ever made thats making me think shes the best but oh well. I still think anyone who hasnt seen that movie should.
Silent Hill forever, the movie is better than the games by far!

Great Movie; Great Character; Amazing Song.
