Heart of gold

Would you date the kindhearted criminal? The benevolent bad guy with a bit of a Robin Hood streak?


I saw Fast Five this weekend because who I am to resist muscular men driving fast cars. I think there's something attractive* about the archetype that Vin Diesel and some of his crew portray. While these characters clearly don't operate within the bounds of the law, their targets are often considered even more evil, and the results of their action often benefit the greater good in some way.

So, how do you feel about the kindhearted criminal?

Fast 5

*Judging by the popularity of this archetype, I'm guessing I'm not the only person these characters appeal to.
