I like all of these four except for Gibson, I voted Rourke as the best because I think he's the best actor and I like his characters as well.

In terms of films I like by each it goes like this

(RE Gibson: All the Gibson films I like are because of other actors or the story in spite of Mel)

Gibson - 4: The Bounty, Bird on a Wire, Chicken Run, Machete Kills

Keaton - 6: Night Shift, Beetlejuice, The Dream Team, Batman, Batman Returns*, Pacific Heights (Keaton's resume is pretty thin after 1990)

Russell - 12  : Used Cars, Escape From New York, The Thing, The Mean Season, Big Trouble in Little China, Tango & Cash*, Backdraft, Unlawful Entry*, Tombstone, Escape From LA*, Breakdown, Vanilla Sky.

Rourke - 15 : Year of the Dragon, Angel Heart, Johnny Handsome, Desperate Hours, White Sands, Double Team, Buffalo 66, Animal Factory, Get Carter*(remake), Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Sin City, The Wrestler, Killshot, Iron Man 2, The Expendables*,

* indicates cheese factor overidden by overall entertainment value

I might have to go back through their filmographies and recount.
But I haven't seen a lot of those Rourke ones. And I forgot Expendables (total cheesedick but watchable). However, I definitely didn't like Iron Man 2. At best, I might give it an "ok"...which I'm not counting in the positive range.
Also, it's hard to count Buffalo 66 as he's hardly in that.
Didn't you like him in Rumble Fish?
Yeah there's a few other films that I've liked him in too like Diner but it's been a long time since I've seen them so I didn't put them in the list. You should use my Rourke list next time you go to the video store.
Will do :cheers:  ....though you know from what I've told you how hard it can be finding stuff in that shop. And i can't always ask for a movie by title as the titles are often different. Still, I'll be on the lookout.
I'll just give you a quick idea of some of the Rourke films.

Year of the Dragon he plays a cop in Chinatown, I think it's in New York. Angel Heart that's where he's a private detective in Louisiana, De Niro is in that one, Johnny Handsome is a good thriller with Morgan Freeman, Forest Whitaker and Lance Henriksen and Ellen Barkin as the bad guy couple. White Sands is a Wilem Dafoe cop thriller with Samuel L Jackson and Rourke as the bad guy. Double Team is an action flick with Van Damme, Rourke plays the bad guy again. Animal Factory is a prison drama, Rourke plays a weird gay guy. Get Carter is a Stallone action thriller, again Rourke plays on of the bad guys and I think you know the rest.
Isn't he sleeping with Lisa Bonet in the Angel Heart movie? I might've seen that but can't remember it.

Those all sound alright but I'd probably trust the Dafoe one most because he's dependable. Check him out in The Hunter btw.  Saw that about a month or two ago and thought it was pretty cool.
Yeah that's right, I think she's supposed to be about 18 in the film. Dafoe is also in the Animal Factory he plays the main character.

I prefer Kurt.  His Wyatt Earp was fantastic.
Still haven't seen that. I heard Val Kilmer is pretty awesome in that too.

AND he's your Huckleberry!

No small feat in that film, which has a lot of great character performances.

I think Keaton might be the best actor of this bunch, though in the right type of role Gibson is very good. Keaton can find his place in a wide assortment of movie genres.

He steals the film.

The best Russel part in that movie BY FAR is the intimidation scene towards the beginning. I think he bitch slaps the guy LOL it is worth the price of admission alone.

He falls far off from there afterwards, but he's still good.

EDIT here it is!
