In today’s entertainment world, we’re all drawn to the bad man not because we love them but because we can’t stop wondering their weird personality and mindset. Of course, it is also because of their outstanding and terrific performance and what good watching the movie without an evil man opposing the hero’s actions. So, here are the top 5 villains of all time. Spoiler alert !
5. Lil Ze – City Of God .
Played by : Leandro Firmino
Not only we fear for the evilness in horror movies like Jigsaw in Saw, Samara in Ring, ( you’re recalling that scene, right? climbed out of the TV, yes, creepy ), Pennywise in IT and Ghostface in Scream, we also have a great fear for some psychopath humans. And of course Z is one of that Psychopaths. His little version is more scary because of his violent acts and he murders people just for the hell of it. He is violent, greedy, sadistic and unpredictable. The highlighting point is that this movie is based on a true story.
4. Darth Vader – Star War .
Played by : Dave Prowse
NO, I AM YOUR FATHER
The famous quote of Vader, where he reveals a big truth to Luke. George Lucas, the director has given some heroic form to this character. This iconic character shared only 34 minutes of the total screen time. He is clearly portrayed as an representation of an evil through his costume. Music was iconic. Costume was iconic. Voice was iconic. These made Darth Vader iconic.
3. Anton Chigurh – No Country for Old Man.
Played by : Javier Bardem
A man with a medical knowledge and a psychotic mind is the most scariest killer. And, he neither hesitates nor shows any emotions while going on a killing spree just like Stefan Salvatore with his humanity off. ( Ref- The Vampire Diaries, series ). This villain is an enigmatic assassin. He is being compared to the bubonic plague by one of the characters in the movie.
2. Joker – The Dark Knight.
Played by : Heath Ledger
Do you want to know why I use a knife? Guns are too quick. You can’t savor all the… little emotions.
Honestly, Heath Ledger’s version of Joker is the best and most iconic piece. His acting has to be mentioned here where his performance was so strong that makes this character stands apart from other comic villains including Joaquin Phoenix and Jared Leto. The best hero has the best villain. His sense of humor is sick and so freaking scary. He is a psychopathic, diabolical clown with zero sympathy.
1. Hannibal Lecter – Silence Of The Lambs.
Played by : Anthony Hopkins
What do you think about a serial killer ? Yes, Fearsome and intimidating. But this character is weird and does not fit into any category because he eats his victims but he did not show any pleasure out of it. There was a scene where his heart beat would raise while killing a nurse. And the important point is he is a forensic psychiatrist.
