About This Quiz

The Western and the gangster movie are two of the greatest, most classical film genres in existence. Both were huge back in the day and then fell out of favor for a while before making a solid comeback. Both offer up profound and moving performances featuring characters who are often embroiled in serious moral and ethical dilemmas that make us as an audience redefine what we think a hero truly is. After all, is Clint Eastwood's the Man With No Name truly a good guy? And even if the Corleone family are bad guys, are you not rooting for them at the same time? These movies have a way of making you cheer on people who straddle a morally ambiguous fence and maybe aren't all bad or all good, but they're definitely interesting and entertaining. And that's what makes a character memorable. The best cowboys and the best gangsters are complex. They can't be all good or all bad; they need to sit in that grey area that makes their story so much richer.

Now, hopefully, you've never had a gunfight at the OK Corral, and you've never had to make a deal with a mob boss on the occasion of his daughter's wedding. However, we bet you can still find similarities between yourself and some of these legendary characters. Why not take the quiz and see where you fit in?
