Scarface anti-hero Tony Montana has topped a new list of movie tough guys and girls - beating off Terminator heroine SARAH CONNOR and Bruce Lee's ENTER THE DRAGON action man.

Al Pacino's cult mobster character Montana rules the new MAXIM Biggest Movie Badasses poll because, "he murders his way to a green card, survives a chainsaw attack, whacks his boss so he can f**k the guy's old lady, snorts coke like he's breathing air..."

The Maxim top 10 is:

2. SARAH CONNOR (TERMINATOR 2: JUDGEMENT DAY)

3. LEE (Enter the Dragon)

4. WILLIAM 'BILL THE BUTCHER' CUTTING (Gangs of New York)

5. INSPECTOR HARRY CALLAHAN (Dirty Harry)
