I wouldn't consider Chewy a main character though. He's definitely only supporting.

He's a villain. He isn't supposed to be likeable. Also, he's following the coin, not Joker. That's what Two-Face does. He does what the coin tells him, with no exceptions.

To a point, I understand where he's coming from. Harvey's turn was a tad fast for me as well. I think part of that may be because I was never all that attached to the Rachel character, so it was hard for me to buy that her death really pushed Harvey that far over the edge.

It didn't bother me enough to the point where I found him unlikeable, because TDK is still one of my favorite films, but I can understand the criticism to a point. I've always felt Two-Face was the weakest aspect of TDK. Simply because we only saw a shadow of the potential that Two-Face has. To clairify, not Harvey Dent, but Two-Face. Harvey was done wonderfully. But Two-Face as a character has much more potential then Nolan utilized. It was still good, but it was unfortunate he only explored a small bit of Two-Face's true capacity.

Well yeah. He's insane. It is completely within his character to do something like that.

I think the issue is more that the "insanity" didn't quite seem justified enough. At least that's how I felt about it, to a small extent.

Mark Zuckenberg in The Social Network. In fact, i found most of the characters in that movie extremely unlikeable lol. Might explain why i didnt like the movie too much (i guess i'm a minority, but i dont care)

I still don't see how Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man was an unlikable douchebag . I see nothing that indicates that, or at least nothing that the Peter from the comics didn't do.

I might be in the minority here I found Jaden Smith's character in the Karate Kid remake to be very unlikeable and a really annoying brat. There wasn't any point in the movie where I felt sorry for him and I even felt he deserved the beating he got the second time around since he was the one that intentionally went after those Chinese kid after the Chinese kid already told him to stay out of his way and he'll leave him alone.

Another one is MJ from the Raimi films. How anyone found her likeable is beyond me.

Those are the only main characters I can list off the top of my head. I can probably name some more if I sit down and try to remember more.

Spider-Man in the SSM cartoon was an unlikable douchbag. Garfield in TASM was the opposite though.

Chalk that up to intentional un-likability I'd say, both on part of the film and within the story for the character himself.

I mean the last line of the film is

"You're not an ass**** Mark. You just try so hard to be one."

Jack Sparrow was fine before he became the increasing focuse of those films. Since then Depp's schtik has worn thin.

I don't think Jeff Goldblum can cease being annoying to me in ANY role he takes. And for me annoying = unlikeable.

Yeah, Brad Pitt sucked in Django. It was definitely his least memorable performance, ever.
