10 Exact Moments Fans Turned On Their Favourite Movie Characters

When our favourite movie characters made us suddenly question our loyalties. 

Marvel Studios

The best movies have the best characters. Simple as that.

Take the Original and Prequel Star Wars trilogies as an example: None of the bad guys introduced in the Prequels ever came close to matching Vader's status as one of cinema's greatest villains, and Anakin, Obi Wan and Padme never replicated the effortless chemistry of Luke, Han and Leia.

Characters are the beating heart of a movie. Whether they're a one-movie wonder like Casablanca's Rick Blaine or a series mainstay like the MCU's Iron Man, great characters form an emotional bond with the audience that leaves us glad of the time we spent with them. So when these people do something to upset us, we take it personally.

In this list we'll take a look at the moments that, intentionally or not, caused the audience to turn on previously loved characters. Whether through moronic decision-making, moral depravity or simply bad writing, these are ten moments that made us channel our inner Bart Simpson and say “What happened, man? You used to be cool”.
