A handful of these characters could easily been swapped with Eric Draven....

The Count of Monte Christo
Edmond Dantes (Jim Caviezel most recently)
Probably one of the most patient avengers, as he spends 13 years in prison, planning a very sophisticated revenge.

V for Vendetta
V (Hugo Weaving)
Starts a full-scale revolution to mask his vendetta against the people who took away everything he had and conducted cruel bio-weapon experiments on him and others.

What about Clint's "Stranger" form High Plains Drifter?! A man so pissed off he comes back from the dead (maybe) or it's his brother he's avenging! He doesn't just get revenge on one person or a gang of people he gets it ON A WHOLE TOWN!!!!!!

.....MEMENTO! How could that not make it?!

The Skin I Live In was a pretty messed up de-construction of the revenge thriller too!

You can't be quoting that old "Revenge is a dish best served cold" line in your article and miss out the mad-bad-mullet-meister of Ceti Alpha V

Do this again and make it twenty with the absolute involvement of Liam Neeson in taken. It is a crime not to have him on this list with that amazing speech that he has.

Umm and Where is Alex Murphy? - 5/10/2012 8:06:07 AM

The manner in which Robo deals with his own executors is violent in the extreme. With Both Emil and Boddicker having TWO very nasty run-ins with Murphy after they've murdered him (yes he bumps into Nash twice, but the first is played for laughs). He also makes life miserable for the everyday scum who had nothing to do with his murder (his way of dealing with potential rapists being a very comendable method). But seriously...Robocop is THE best revenge film of all time...and you didn't include it????

I know this is a list of classic revenge movies and most people who watch a fair few films should have seen them all, but this article contains a HUUUUAAAGGEE!!!!! Dead Man's Shoes spoiler!! Fun list though, I'm watching Rolling Thunder and the brilliant Oldboy tonight.

I've just noticed someone else mention this below and it needs to be repeated! If you have never seen Dead Man's Shoes do NOT read the synopsis of it in this feature!
Was a bit annoyed not to see Payback on here but you have got Point Blank which Payback was a re-make of so you are forgiven :) (PS. I spit on your grave is a great shout!)

I think what pissed Creasey (Man on Fire) off was the fact that he was suicidal when he took the job, looking after little Pita. She brought him back, gave him hope and a spark of new life. Then she was taken, and all of Mexico couldn't stand in his way.
Worthy additions Grindhouse classics (+remakes) The Last House on the Left (did I leave something in the microwave?) and I Spit on Your Grave (crows + bath + garden shears).
Also....Batman ????

Obviously the person who wrote this wasn't paying attention.
Casino Royale was a reboot, with a different Bond and a different Leiter. He's not supposed to be the same guy.

Count of Monte Cristo? Eric Draven? The dragon from Enter the Dragon? Darkman? The cast of Sleepers? Pumpkin Head? The Punisher(Tom Jane)? That girl who spat on those Graves? I wish this list had gone to a 100.
Also, is HornetPrime trolling with his post or is he genuinely an idiot?

I'd agree that the count of monte cristo's omission suprised me. Thought maybe Desperado, Lucky Number Slevin and the Sting may have been included too...
