Bricks: characters that are known for brawn, rather than brains. These characters don’t really have any esoteric powers and can’t fly (flying bricks, like Superman, Hancock, G-Girl etc are a different matter entirely) – they’re just generally rock solid, very strong and extremely durable.
Fiction is full of these characters, whether it be the world of movies, television, comic books, video games or otherwise, the super-strong and super-durable character is an archetype for heroes and villains that has been around for many years and will still be around for many years to come.
As a result, I’m going to take a look at a few of these characters from the world of movies who, should you ever meet them (you know, if they weren’t fictional), you really wouldn’t want to cross, thanks to their ability to beat the living hell out of people with ease.
Here are eleven formidable movie bricks that you wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side of (in no particular order)…
Dishonourable Mention: Juggernaut (X-Men: The Last Stand)
As strong and as durable as Vinnie Jones’ Juggernaut may be, he’s a far cry from the levels of his comic book counterpart who is a legitimate rival for and threat to the likes of the Hulk.
This version of the character was a joke. A complete idiot. Frankly, he was an insult to the comic book character of the same name and his humiliating defeat at the hands of Kitty Pryde at the end of the movie was nothing short of shambolic.
There’s no doubt he’d beat the living hell out of you if you ticked him off and he got his hands on you but, given how stupid he is, he’d have a damn hard time catching you in the first place.
Moving on to the actual list…
