Movie Dads Who Kick Ass to Save their Children

It’s time to celebrate the film fathers who do whatever it takes to defend their children, from Tom Cruise to Dwayne Johnson to Denzel Washington.


Fathers can get a bad rap for being seen as dorky or having  affinity for “dad jokes.” That’s why it’s always refreshing to remember the cinematic representations of dads who aren’t afraid of mixing it up when forced to defending their own.

In honor of the fathers who go the extra mile, here is a tribute to the big-screen dads who will do anything and everything to protect their flesh and blood.
