Worst Movie Villains of All Time

These villains really are vile, because they suck at their performances! Got a bad villain? Put it on the list!

The Top Ten

1 Randy McDermott (Dangerously Close)

One of the worst written villains in any film. And the actor who played him co-wrote this terrible film. - MonkeeJuice

Ok for once this list got something right.This guy SUCKS A LOT!

2 Nuclear Man (Superman IV: The Quest For Peace)

And how did he get those clothes of his after he was formed from nuclear missiles and a piece of superman's hair?

I think Superman IV and Batman and Robin are both proof that people should NOT make a fourth superhero movie. - Glirkinsnoff

Nuclear man's weeknest is staying out of the sun which makes you bursting out with laughter

3 Mr. Freeze (Batman & Robin) Mr. Freeze (Batman & Robin) Mr. Freeze, real name Victor Fries, is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of the superhero Batman.

Joel shoemaker destroyed a terrific batman villain! At least he apologized

What a cold reception. I can't believe my ice!

Joel shoemaker, why do you hate us. oh yeah, you're a Nazi

Lets Kick Some Ice!
Oh my god... - DapperPickle

4 Terl (Battlefield Earth)

This is where John travolta's career started to sink.

5 King Koopa (Super Mario Bros.)

Does this even look like Bowser? Bowser is supposed to be a dragon, not a military president with a long tongue and horns sticking out of his head. and why did they keep calling him king koopa back then instead of Bowser?

Dennis hopper doesn't even know what he's doing. I wouldn't blame him. I would be confused to if I had to act through anything the script for this movie intended for.

This was a serious low point in Dennis Hopper's career, and it makes me sick when he shouts "Goomba! " - evil7

He looks like a military donald trump with thingies - VideoGamefan5

6 Venom (Spider-Man 3)

I think venom should have been in a different spiderman movie. If he was, I'm sure the character would have been brought to life in a much better way. I did like the venom costume though, without topher graces face showing.

Too damn skinny to be Venom, should he suppose to be big and hulked-up type of villain just like the animated Spiderman shows?

If he was buffer and had a long tongue and didn't peel his face back every time he talks I think he'd be cool but since he's skinny he has no tongue and he peels his face back every time he talks he sucks

Let's hope that tom harsh will portray benom better than topher brave and wiki being the villain we all want to see

7 Hans (Frozen)

The screenwriters just decided to turn him evil to add 20 minutes to this film's running time

He is disgraceful. Frozen was an awful movie!

You know why he is bad?

Because he is from a terribly overrated film called "Frozen"

*Rolls eyes and groans*

Why? Why is he here? And this high up? For the millionth time people, can you stop trashing every conceivable thing in Frozen just because it still gets talked about? Or are you just mad that him being the villain was an actual surprise and wasn't just spoon fed to you? Is that how you like your villains? Generic, weak, and blatantly obvious with their evilness? What happened to moviegoers? I thought we liked having complexity and thinking elements in our movies, but nope, apparently all the people who are trashing Hans just wanted him to be a straight forward, black and white, totally un-sympathetic villain
