In good movies and bad, I'm sure there are certain characters that you honestly feel for.  They may have had a great idea but it backfired on them.  Or maybe they were a great person who fell from grace hard.  Some however, you feel for more than others.  I think my number one nomination of all time is Seth Brundle from The Fly.

A bit full of himself yes but he honestly had a genuine idea.  In order to escape the perils of motion sickness he put his best foot forward to revolutionize the world of travel with a teleportaition device.  Of course we know the story, his DNA gets spliced with that of a common housefly in a tragic mishap.  I just feel awful at the end when his human fly body gets spliced with shrapnel and wires.  His plea for his girlfriend to blow his head off pretty much puts me in a depressed mood every time I watch it. 

So is there a character in a movie who's story truly breaks your heart?

Are we talking about characters that shouldn't necessarily have our sympathy? I mean, I could say Lilja from Lilja 4 ever but anyone would feel for her or are you talking about characters like.. Cesar Luciani from A prophet...A real SOB,  He certainly didn't deserve my sympathy but I couldn't help myself. I felt bad for him.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

The Jewish soldier in SAVING PRIVATE RYAN.  Poor guy got nailed to the floor by a Nazi dagger, while looking his assailant right in the eye and begging for his life.

The bad guy in The Fly II.

He was a villain, but it would've been better to kill him than leave him as he was...

Walter Burke [Al Pacino] in The Recruit ~ a pioneering twenty year CIA veteran just tossed aside and "shoved out in the woods" to the Farm. No wonder he goes apesh*t at the end of the film.  Buggedout

I felt bad for Paul Giamatti's character in Sideways. His character wasn't exactly a good guy, but I felt sorry for him anyway.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
