The Top Ten Fathers On Film | 6. Don Vito Corleone, The Godfather
6. Don Vito Corleone, The Godfather

The Ultimate Family Man. Godfather to many, father to five, there is literally nothing Don Corleone wouldn't do for his kids. Sure, he was a man who made his share of mistakes: getting his sons into the family business was probably the biggest, and organised crime in general probably isn't the safest environment in which to bring up children. But he also reaped the benefits, living to a ripe old age and dying peacefully in the bosom of a loving family. Bless.

Fatherly advice: "Whoever comes to you with the Barzini meeting - he's the traitor. Don't forget that."

See also: Vengeful father John Matrix in Commando, Liam Neeson and his particular set of skills in Taken and the similarly no-nonsense Chingachgook in Last Of The Mohicans.
