Live Poll: Movies Where the Villain is the Hero

Who said the villain couldn't be the hero?

Of course, the term is to be taken very loosely... in its "main protagonist" sense, and let's forget about gangster pictures where it's pretty much a genre-defining trope.

Which of these movies where the bad guy is the main character is your favorite?

And Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer just came to mind, too.
