Top 10 Movie Villains

Top 10 Movie Villains

They haunt, terrify and intrigue us. Here’s my ten favourites.

Ben Kingsley as Don Logan – Sexy Beast

A charmless sociopath who doesn’t take no for an answer, not even from bet365’s Ray Winestone.

Tim Curry as Darkness – Legend

A camp, sensual villain who’s performance by Curry almost makes this epic failure of a film watchable.

Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter – Silence of the Lambs

An intelligent villain who’s greatest weapon is his charisma. He almost makes human flesh look palatable.

Rutger Hauer as Roy Batty – Blade Runner

Both a villain and arguably just another victim. Rutger Hauer’s Roy Batty is strong, fierce and eerily forgiving.

HAL 9000 – A Space Odyssey 

A sentient computer system who desire to complete the mission disregards the risks to human life.

Joe Pesci as Tommy DeVitoGoodfellas

A funny guy who you’d have to invite to a poker game whether you wanted to or not.

Hugo Weaving as Agent Smith – The Matrix

A cold calculated (literally) villain who will stop at nothing to suppress the rebellion.

Ralph Fiennes as Amon Goeth – Schindler’s List

A detached, dispassionate Nazi commandant who exudes what Speilberg called ‘evil sexuality’.

Gary Oldman as Norman Stansfield – Leon

Oldman plays an unhinged DEA agent who struggles to control himself let along the crew he heads.

A pretty unconvincing prop as Jaws – Jaws

A villain whose first appearance comes half way through the film but still manages to terrorise both the local tourists and the audience.
