These people are tough, mean and do not hesitate to hunt down the evil doers in order to bring justice. Sometimes driven by revenge and sometimes self-righteousness, these iconic characters carry the flagship of justice by taking the law into their own hands. They are either a direct victim disillusioned by the loopholes of law and order or are victims of existential crisis. We are excluding superhero movies from the list, so Gotham’s Caped Crusader as well as the masked wall crawler do not make it to our list. Here is the list of top vigilante movies ever. You can watch some of these best vigilante movies on Netflix or Hulu or Amazon Prime.
10.The Brave One (2007)
Erica Brian is one of the two female vigilantes featured on our list. A non-violent radio talk show host, Erica loses her fiancé in a violent attack. Traumatized by the experience, she buys a gun from a black market dealer and avenges her fiancé. However, in the process, she becomes as violent as the attackers. She commits further acts of vigilantism by killing anyone, whom she sees as a part of a serious crime. The attempt of making the movie is not as brave as the title, still Jodie Foster’s performance as a good character gone ruthless deserves our clap.

9. Taken Franchise (2008-2014)
Bryan Mills is an ex-CIA operative with a very ‘particular set of skills’. In the first movie, with such skills, Bryan goes on a rampage to find her kidnapped daughter, bashing heads and blowing brains in the process. In order to rescue his daughter, he takes down an entire human trafficking ring. Well-known by fans for dispatching his enemies in a cool and calculative manner, Bryan holds the highest number of body counts on the list.
