Top 10 Baddest Badass Movie Dads of All Time

Prev2 of 11Next

10. Bob Parr/Mr. Incredible (“The Incredibles”/Craig T. Nelson)

Let’s start off our list with an easy one: Sure he’s just a CG creation, but thanks to the usual Pixar excellence, Bob Parr aka Mr. Incredible is probably as real as most of the badass dads on our list. You don’t get any tougher than an ex-superhero hiding out in the suburbs, just barely able to contain his need to smash things and break stuff. So when it comes time to kick ass and take names, no one does it better than an invulnerable superhero. Plus, he’s got able assist from a stretchy wife and two superpowered kids, giving him a clear advantage over any foe. Okay, so this is more of a “Don’t we all wish our dads were superheroes?” entry. Call it a Fantasy Dad instead of an actual Badass Dad.

    Great list except no Jack Bauer?–what gives? But I think after “Ransom,” “Edge of Darkness,” “Mad Max,” and “The Patriot,” Mel Gibson's got this to himself.

    You have one pairing of Jet Li with Xie Mao (the badass little boy) but you don't have their first team up as father and son “The Legend of The Red Dragon.” Xie Mao was even younger.

    And why hasn't there been a remake of “Lone Wolf and Cub?” I'd love to see that remade with like Ken Watanabe, Chow Yun Fat or even Jet Li, or Donnie Yen. Or hell a re-imagining of it in like a post apocalyptic setting.
