10 Movie Dads You Don’t Want to Mess With

Some are bad, some are crazy, some are just plain dedicated, these dads show us what it means to be a tough father. Click through to see the full list!

Darth Vader from Star Wars


The “chosen one” turned evil, then turned good again, Vader has shown to be completely merciless, and as can also be seen from this wonderful children’s book series, very protective.

Bryan Mils from Taken


“I will find you, and I will kill you” pretty much sums up the natural, protective instincts Bryan Mils has when his daughter is kidnapped in the first Taken movie. Liam Neeson’s portrayal is hard to forget as the quintessential dad that saves the day.

King Triton from The Little Mermaid


Although he doesn’t display his full strength in the Little Mermaid, the dude can bestow legs on people like it’s nothing. I’d hate to see what he’d do to Eric if he started giving Ariel a hard time.

Hawkeye from the Avengers


The father-we-never-knew-existed came out in Avengers: Age of Ultron as a secret family man with a wife, kids, and a farmhouse (no white picket fence from what I could see). We know not to be fooled by the softer side, Hawkeye’s piloting and archery skills are second to none.

Marlin from Finding Nemo


He’s not very dangerous but imagine this brave little dad’s persistence magnified to
Jurassic World size and you’ve got one tough fish.
