Best Movie Villains of 2013
A truly menacing and powerful villain, Shannon brings remarkable intensity to the great character. An epic villain in an epic movie, the fight between him and Superman is undoubtedly one of the best ever. Full-throttle excitement from start to finish. Love MoS!
He's so underrated, as is the entire movie, but I can live with that. What really bothers me is that the 1980s Zod, from Superman II, is so overrated. Seriously, '80s Zod wore a ballet outfit, had no plan whatsoever, and had two allies: a narcissistic woman and a mute idiot. That's pretty much the worst army you could ask for. But Man of Steel's Zod is amazing. He is actually menacing, has an actual plan, an actual army, and is covered in beautiful armor. He is not doing what he's doing for personal gain. And that goatee... it just works.
Smart, strong villain who gets his shine from the brilliant performance by Benedict. It's such a treat to watch him on screen in this amazing movie. My love for this movie is tremendous!
The second time around, Snow is more evil and more determined to kill Katniss.
The raunchiest and funniest villain of the year, Kick-Ass 2 is a badass and super entertaining movie.
Sharlto Copley gives a mesmerizing performance as the psychopathic sleeper agent Kruger. He is a visually cool and intriguing villain who possesses a variety of high-tech weaponry. A skilled swordsman, his favorite armaments are a katana and a force-field shield. Now that's completely badass. He's a ruthless mercenary with brutal methods. Elysium is an excellent sci-fi film featuring grimy battle tech, stylish action, great cinematography, and a terrific soundtrack. The pacing and story are superb. Everyone is great in it, but it is Copley's Kruger who steals the show.
This guy was the most unique villain of 2013. I didn't even like Elysium that much, but this crazy, blood-crazed villain was a lot of fun to watch.
If more people saw The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, then they would agree that Smaug is awesome. Benedict Cumberbatch conveys so much intensity with a voice that strikes fear in anyone. His design is massive, making him look all the more threatening. I can't wait for There and Back Again, where we can see what he's truly capable of.
This maniac has an appetite for human flesh, which is why Red Harrington has an ivory leg with a shotgun inside.
Incredible monster villains in this amazing movie! They look absolutely spectacular. They're enormous, aggressive, and put up great, tough fights against the Jaegers. Pacific Rim is the ultimate blockbuster!
Great performance by Sean Penn in this highly entertaining movie.
The zombies are terrific. Ferocious and aggressive, they look real and there are plenty of them. They're done pretty perfectly for the film. Great enemies that ensure an exciting and fun time at the movies. World War Z is amazing!
