There was a programme on Brit television recently called 100 best actors, as voted by their peers, Al Pacino and Robert DeNero came joint 5th as even the experts couldn't decide between them.

Daniel Day Lewis is the best actor out there. who cares if he's mental? Between pacino and DeNiro, well, it has to be the raging bull, doesn't it?

How about Sean Connery..yummer!! ;)

Does anyone remember a very young Sean Connery starring in a movie called The Hill? (1965, directed by Sidney Lumet). I always think of that as one of his all-time best roles. He played the part of a British Army Regular WO2 who had been busted for striking an Officer and sent to a detention barracks in Libya. A feature of this barracks was a man-made hill over which prisoners were double-marched in full kit.

Roberts had been a Squadron Sergeant Major but was now Trooper Joe Roberts.

Harry Andrews was Bert Wilson, the RSM who really ran the place, or thought he did until a new screw, Staff Sergeant Williams, arrived. Williams and Roberts fell out from the start, mainly because Roberts had been everything Williams had not, and never could be.

In the opening scene, Roberts (who should have known better but could have cared less) looks Williams up and down and gobs off, "An' what're yew? Great 'ero wi' a pair-men-ent Base job?" Oops! That one got him and his cell-mates a Cook's tour of the jail, including a little jaunt over the hill in full marching order at the double. It didn't, as you may imagine, make him popular.

The movie centers around the death of one of the prisoners, Stevens, who collapsed and died as a result of heat exhaustion. After that came a race to cover up his death, all cooked up between Wilson, Williams and the MO, a drunk who passed Stevens fit instead of putting him on restricted duties. This film is a masterpiece of black comedy, ending in the murder of Williams by Stevens' cell-mates.

All in all, one of Sean Connery's best efforts, and in my opinion, the movie that really launched his career. The cast contains many of the old greats of British acting:

Complete credited cast:
Sean Connery .... Trooper Joe Roberts
Harry Andrews .... Regimental Sgt. Maj. Bert Wilson
Ian Bannen .... SSgt. Charlie Harris
Alfred Lynch .... George Stevens
Ossie Davis .... Jacko King
Roy Kinnear .... Monty Bartlett
Jack Watson .... Jock McGrath
Ian Hendry .... SSgt. Williams
Michael Redgrave .... Medical officer (as Sir Michael Redgrave)
Norman Bird .... Commandant
Neil McCarthy .... SSgt. Burton
Howard Goorney .... Walters
Tony Caunter .... Martin

Well worth a look if you can find it on video somewhere.

What about Mickey Rourke? The man's a certified badass, AND who can argue with that raunchy/bloody sex scene with Lisa Bonet (the Cosby girl), in Angel Heart? Speaking of Angel Heart, Robert Deniro did a damn fine job as Satan in that film.
Vincent Cassel is a badass. Probably my favorite French actor.
Oh! And Monica Bellucci. Looks DAMN GOOD for a woman in her 40's. Hell, looks DAMN GOOD for a woman in her 20's.
