hahaha as I was scrolling I thought this was Ed Harris in Enemy At The Gates until I did I double take.
The Sheriff of Nottingham from Robin Hood Prince of Thieves ("Cut his heart out with a spoon" - oh good old Alan Rickman)
Walter Donovan (Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade).
Heath Ledger as the Joker.
al swearengen(?) from deadwood.
Took a while to see Ledger's Joker turn up.
Anyone seen the Korean movie "I Saw the Devil"
Mik Sin Choi - wow what a scumbag
I never really saw Omar as a villain.
Sure he didn't bad things, but he usually just screwed over the bad guys.
I saw Omar as a great villain.
How about Quint
I love Quint as a character, but once again I don't really see him as a villain.
He was trying to do the right thing and catch the shark, but his obsession just took over him and he went crazy.
Quint is Ahab. Definitely a villain, or at least an anti-hero. Chief Brody is the white hat. Quint is there to represent the dark side.
Omar is an anti hero (or possibly more accurate an anti villian)
Surely the villian of the wire is the realities of life in Baltimore
I'm not seeing anything heroic in committing murder to steal drugs and money. Regardless of the motivation or circumstance. I'd say Quint & Omar are such endearing villains we can't see them as such.
On the wire, i think Marlo was underrated as a villian
Never warmed to him or his hitman/hitwoman team myself. He had his moments - those clock pictures were genius
I'm shocked no one has mentioned Max Cady from Cape Fear, Robert Mitchum was pretty badass in the original but De Niro took it to a whole new level in the newer version.
