I liked Denzel's character in that too. I was thinking about mentioning Liam Neeson's character in the Taken films but wasn't sure if he counted as an anti-hero. He's a good guy who fought as a good agent but he definitely doesn't mess around when it comes to protecting innocense especially his daughter.

Speaking of those movies, way before they came out Val Kilmer did a great little movie called Spartan where he's essentially like Liam's and Denzel's character. He's got to go rogue to do the right thing.

There has to be recognition for Marquise Isabelle de Merteuil, and Vicomte Sébastien de Valmont.

John Malkovich and Glen Close at their finest, as scheming aristocrats a few short years before the Revolution.
Particularly for the Marquise, who plays the Vicomte like a harpsichord.

I'd forgotten about Plissken. Excellent choice.
