Top 10s seem to be the fashion these days. People are interested in top 10s of doesn’t matter what. Often it’s click bait, wanting you to click through a whole top 10. I fucking hate that shit. Give it to me all at once or don’t give it to me at all.

So looking at a top 10 of movie bad guys, one can say it’s difficult. Everyone has a different definition of what a bad guy should be. Some people swear by Ledger’s Joker, some don’t. Some think Lord Voldemort is a good bad guy, while you couldn’t give me enough money to watch any of the Potter movies. But that’s what makes it fun. With this article I hope to point people into the direction of movies they might not have seen, but chances are that nearly everyone has seen some of these movies. So without further ado here we go.

10. John Gillon in Midnight Sting

john gillon

Midnight Sting, a.k.a. Diggstown, is an awesome movie. It’s probably my favorite con movie. Bruce Dern is the personification of slime in this movie. John Gillon is a slippery, sneaky rich guy who owns the town and likes to scam his way to more and more money. The way he talks, the way his facial expressions are, and the arrogance he exudes you just want to see him get his ass kicked.

9. Kelly in The Girl Next Door

kelly

Before the awesome Timothy Olyphant was Raylan Givens in Justified he was Kelly in The Girl Next Door. Kelly is one of the most charismatic bad guys I have ever seen. He befriends the teen and is quite douchey, but when the teen gets too close to Kelly’s meal ticket, the pornstar, Kelly changes. He is not Mr. Nice Guy anymore. The way Olyphant delivers his lines is just plain funny to watch too.

8. Sho Nuff in The Last Dragon

sho nuff

The Last Dragon is a cult movie with a capital C. Sho Nuff, the Shogun of Harlem, is the bad guy in the movie. He wants everyone to know he is the best and wants to fight everybody. Bruce Leroy doesn’t want to fight Sho Nuff, but Sho Nuff doesn’t take no for an answer. Sho Nuff has swagger, he has style, he is the master, and he kicks ass. What else do you need in a movie?

7. The Night Slasher in Cobra

night slasher

Cobra is one of my favorite Stallone movies and I never understood why it never got a sequel. The way I see it Cobretti was Stallone’s coolest role. However, one guy stole the show in the movie and that was Brian Thompson as the Night Slasher. He was one ugly, nasty motherfucker who liked to make sushi out of his victims with his awesome slasher knife. When he finally confronts Stallone and calls him pig, spit is flying out of his mouth in utter disdain. Such a great scene. Probably my favorite Brian Thompson role and not only because of the spit.

6. Inspector Richard in Kiss Of The Dragon

inspector richard

If I were a casting director, Tchecky Karyo would always be cast as the bad guy. The guy is born to play a bad guy. It is no different in this movie. He is one nasty piece of shit who sets up Jet Li to take the fall for an assassination. At one moment he kidnaps the daughter of a woman who was an accomplice during the assassination. He tells the daugher he had a turtle once and that her mother stole it, which was a bit different from what really happened, but the delivery is just awesome.

5. Richie Madano in Out For Justice

richie madano

Seagal’s best movie will always be known for Richie Madano. William Forsythe goes full tilt psycho in this movie and it’s up to Seagal to stop him. Richie Madano is out of control and leaves a trail of destruction. Seagal needs to catch him but it isn’t that easy. Probably my favorite William Forsythe role.

4. Commissaire Sauveur Cristini in Dobermann

sauveur

I love Dobermann. It’s fun movie with a bunch of colorful characters. One guy totally steals the show and that is Tchecky Karyo. Yes, he is again in the top 10. Cristini is Vic Mackey on dope and he is totally crazy. He will stop at absolutely nothing to catch Dobermann and his gang including letting a baby play with a grenade just to get some information out of the parent. When the confrontation between Dobermann and Cristini finally comes, you want to see Cristini go down. Or maybe you don’t. Tchecky Karyo kicks ass and that can’t be said enough.

3. Pennywise The Clown in IT

pennywise2

Tim Curry as Pennywise The Clown was a stroke of genius. That clown was so evil and even to this day I know various people who became afraid of clowns after watching that movie. Seems to me IT caused a lot of clown trauma and it’s only a testament of how well Tim Curry played the role. Do you want a balloon?

2. Luther in The Warriors

luther

Anyone who has seen The Warriors knows the line. David Patrick Kelly totally steals the show as the sneaky, cowardish and plain crazy Luther in The Warriors. He causes The Warriors a lot of problems and in the end he wants to take care of them with his gang. His immortal line “Warriors, come out to play” is known to everyone who watched the movie. David Patrick Kelly played an unforgettable role. By the way, if you don’t know, take a listen to SUK Podcast episode 81 in which David Patrick Kelly was interviewed.

1. Scorpio in Dirty Harry

scorpio

Andrew Robinson played the best bad guy ever in a movie. Dirty Harry had his work cut out for him to catch Scorpio. Scorpio is like a pest killing people and he even kicks the snot out of Harry once. Don’t know many people who succeeded in that. Scorpio is a grade-A lunatic, who made Dirty Harry an unforgettable movie.  DO WE UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER?

  • Tarmac492.1

    Dude, Richie Modano is sooooooooo underrated as a bad guy that it is a crime. Forsythe rocks it in this movie. Easily my favorite Seagal flick.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Another great list, Bop!!! You never have the easy choices!!! Love it!!!!

  • Tarmac492.1

    Tcheky Karyo should be in EVERY MOVIE!!!!!

  • Tarmac492.1

    I would like to nominate Angela Landsbury for the original Manchurian Candidate. Also Guy Woodhouse(John Cassavettes) for selling out his wife and unborn kid in Rosemary’s Baby.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Cassevettes and Roy Scheider should have played brothers in a movie.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Olyphant rocked it in the Girl Next Door–a character that was more complex than you would think from a flick like that. Also, loved his drug dealer in Go.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Imagine ShoNuff had to fight el DeBarge? Not a very long fight.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Bop told me about Doberman. I gotta get on that shit!!!!

  • Tarmac492.1

    Yeah, Andy Robinson in Dirty Harry is insane. I think DH is very close to a horror movie, but not quite.

  • KilliK

    Anybody seen Richie?

  • KilliK

    dont, it sucks.

  • Infinite Zissou

    The sexually transmitted demon from It Follows

    Some more sinister undercurrents from Roald Dahl in a children’s story.

  • Tarmac492.1

    My farts after a 7-11 boneless rib sandwich and six warm budweiser cans.

  • Zed

    Isn’t he the hero?

  • Infinite Zissou

    Hard to say.

  • gorgarwilleatyou1

    Great list I loved number one choice that was a great piece of acting such a deranged scumbag makes the payoff with Clint that much fulfilling ,”well punk!” Reminds me what a downer of an ending that flic had which appeals more to my taste … Fuck happy !

  • gorgarwilleatyou1

    Tchecky Karyo one of my favs one of those solid genre actors always delivers good work like a French Sean Bean! He was great in kiss of the dragon and Doberman. I also liked him in Nostradamus not seen that one in years well my memory remembers it as good .

  • Hahah, the two Tchecky Karyo characters are amazing. Great picks! Scorpio would be my top pick too

  • I’ll keep coming back, until somebody remember’s seein’ Richie…

  • Well, there’s Hank Scorpio, too…

    Hans Gruber
    Xenia Onatopp
    Neville Sinclair
    Betelgeuse
    Toht
    Auric Goldfinger
    Damon Killian

    I like my villains happy. Not just because they expect to win, but because they enjoy being evil so very much.

  • Zed

    He loves German beeeeer

  • Stalkeye

    I give it up for both Luther and Sho Nuff. Luther was an instigating sneaky piece of Shit while Sho was full of hubris and pride. I was shocked when I found out that the actor Julius Carry passed of Cancer seven Years ago. His career should have spring-boarded just from TLD alone.

    This shot always reminded me of a Michael Golden Drawing.

    http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/11120/111201214/4395473-shonuff.jpg

    Gotta love this scene. XD

  • Tarmac492.1

    Toht laughing like a hyena when Indy and Marion get locked up in the Well of Souls is classic.

  • Tarmac492.1

    He was Busta Rhymes before Busta Rhymez.

  • Stalkeye

    I would pay to see that Shit!

  • Zed

    Sho Nuff appeared in an episode of Samurai Jack. It was pretty awesome.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I saw that movie in the theaters in like 8th grade and caught it a few years ago and, man, it held up quite nicely. Fun little flick with some good looking ass. Love me some Vanity.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Also Toht holding the red hot poker to marion’s face with her saying “I will tell you everything.”

    “ooh yes. I know you will.”

  • Tarmac492.1

    I agree about the happy villains. So much more fun to be hated.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I approve.

  • Zed
  • Tarmac492.1

    Oh and Fuck you cancer!!!!

  • “I’ve got seven more points….”

    XD

  • Stalkeye

    I liked Travis Dane from Under Siege 2 . he kinda made the Film more entertaining with quirky dialogue like “Yeah, I disappeared and faked my death just to catch you two Fucking”! XD

    Strannix was another interesting Baddie but he never got to show us his full potential when going up against Ryback. I think that’s due to Steven (Seagal’s) inflated ego.

    Gary Busy also killed in that Movie; “Now I know why you’re a Cook, you hit like a [email protected]”! WTF!

    and then there’s this…

  • Tarmac492.1

    loved Xenia. Famke has had a nice career for herself as she has legit talents. My friends hung with her a few times back in the late 90’s and said she was cool as shit. Sadly, they never called me up.

  • Yeah, Eric Bogosian was a hoot as Dane.

    “I’m gonna shock the world by spreading caca all over the place….”

  • Tarmac492.1

    Very, very underrated sequel as I am sure I have mentioned to you.

  • Stalkeye

    Vanity was sooo Hawt back in the Day. So was Vanessa Williams…but that my friend is another story.

    http://orig00.deviantart.net/96cd/f/2011/337/1/a/winking_cat_animation_by_aimee_valentine-d4i0fj2.gif

  • Stalkeye

    Yeah, and can kick better too! have you seen Halloween Resurrection??!!??

    Whadefuck was that Shit?!?

  • Stalkeye

    Straight up it’s Ass!!

  • Infinite Zissou

    Albert Brooks in Broadcast News. Maybe?

  • Ned Beatty in “Network”

  • Stalkeye

    I’m certain that you have and even if you didn’t, I agree twofold.
    It was underrated. I just hated how Segal never broke a sweat while fighting Everett McGill. I called Bullshit on that scene.

    However, the film had memorable dialog and aside from Borgasian’s Dane, there was Mcgill’s “You ruined my Coat” and “Who else thought I Fucked up”? Badassery!!

  • Stalkeye

    Killian, Fuck yea!!

    Richards: I know you, You’re that Asshole on TV”
    Killian: “You know, I said the same thing about you”.

    Booh-yah!!

  • Zed

    “Killian. I’ll be back.”
    “Only in a rerun.”

  • Full Frontal Throttle

    I hate Seagal

  • Stalkeye

    Some friends they are!! (0:<

    I saw her walking a Dog around where I work well over a Year ago. I was tempted to ask her about why Ratner screwed up X3 so badly, but that might seem like an ambush interview. /: y'know, as in TMZ??

  • If you see her again, ask if she wants to be in a podcast

  • Stalkeye

    I cant take him seriously. I only like a few of his movies and its mostly due to his Costars.

  • Full Frontal Throttle

    It’s ok. Not nearly as good as everyone tries to make it out o be.

  • Stalkeye

    Classic line from yet another underrated Film.

  • Tarmac492.1

    What is her answer was “‘Cause he is a talentless hack.”

  • Stalkeye

    I also gotta give it up for Bennett! Hilariously flamboyant, over the top and not to mention, can survive electrocution! XD

  • Full Frontal Throttle

    From last year…….anyone know the film?

  • Full Frontal Throttle

    For Stalkeye

  • Tarmac492.1

    By all accounts–a vile human being.

  • Full Frontal Throttle

    No love here

  • Full Frontal Throttle

    Evil , pure and simple

  • Full Frontal Throttle

    how many times you gonna post this, hack?

  • Tarmac492.1

    We all float down here, Georgie.

  • Stalkeye

    Frost from Blade may not been a Badass, but he certainly was a Smartass. LOL

    “Is Blade giving it to ya”?

  • Stalkeye

    Those Rednecks from Deliverance! “SUUUIIIEEE”!!!

  • Tarmac492.1

    Club Kid gone wrong. Reminds me of the slimy trust fund baby types that get off by molesting drugged women and maybe strangling them in a park or some shit. I liked Dorff in this role. He was physically no match for Snipes.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Sack in Wedding Crashers. Bradley Cooper’s best role.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Mr. T in Rocky III

  • Stalkeye

    BUAAHHAHAHAH! That’s a great comparison, bro!

  • Tarmac492.1

    Alec Baldwin the Cooler. Great role from the fellow Pequan.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    No Clarence Boddicker from Robocop?

  • Tarmac492.1

    Just watched this. The Vistor or some shit. THis dude is genetically engineered and the friends of a family’s dead soldier son. With Leland Orser. Pretty decent flick.

  • Full Frontal Throttle

    I thought it was pretty cool. Nice idea, could have been better

  • Tarmac492.1

    Adam Wingard maybe the new Larry Cohen.

  • Full Frontal Throttle

    He might just be….

  • Tarmac492.1

    I guess anybody can take from that what they like??

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Ivan Drago from Rocky IV.
    Daryl Revok from Scanners.
    Stephen Berkoff in, well…most eighties films.
    Carter Burke.
    Hans Gruber.

  • Full Frontal Throttle

    I know where you were heading with that…..

  • Tarmac492.1

    Amazing flick, More amazing that it is true. Whaaaaaatttt????

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    That was the beginning of the end for Seagal, and the start of his “fat Elvis” period (which still continues to this day, of course). He very lamely and obviously tried to disguise his diminishing fighting ability in that scene with McGill through speed-ramping camera tricks. What an egotistical douche!

  • Stalkeye

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Classic. A great line to use on the ladies to display alpha male dominance. I have the slapped cheeks to prove it.

  • Stalkeye

    [email protected] Elvis.

    He was a running Joke post Under siege. I’m sure our Friend formerly of AICN Vern would strongly disagree.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Mr. Joshua in Lethal Weapon.
    Tong Po in Kickboxer.
    Thulsa Doom in Conan.
    Mola Ram from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

    God, I love the eighties!

  • Stalkeye

    Peter Stegman!!

    “I am the Future”!

  • The Guest… I am still baffled by the hype.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Ain’t It Cool.

    Sowwy

  • Harry was right about one thing.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I always dug Samantha Mathis. She was cute in that flick. Too many clothes though.

  • KilliK
  • Tarmac492.1

    was ok. Wingard makes mildly entertaining low-budget films with talented actors who work on better projects elsewhere. You’re Next is decent as well. Thoughts on him being the next Larry Cohen?

  • Yeah that’s on point. Lots of half-digested ideas that are based on a sensationalist premise.

  • Tarmac492.1

    two good ones. Nice. Last Boy Scout is a great flick.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Giggle.

  • Oh, hell yeah

  • I like the scene where McGill uses pepper spray as a mouth spray.

  • Zed

    Deak greets death with a smile. How many bad guys can say the same?

  • Bop

    You don’t wanna know how many people I annoyed by yelling that in the past. 😀

  • Bop

    Tong Po was great.

  • Bop

    Bloody hell. I knew I forgot one.

  • Stalkeye
  • Bop

    Classic, classic line.

  • Bop

    He fell out of the top 10. Sorry.

  • Stalkeye

    There’s been moments when I feel like saying that to my Wife’s Friends when they stay way past their time. (0:<
    I keed, I keed.

  • Stalkeye

    I saw what you did there!! LMMFAO

  • Bop

    Xenia Onatopp is saved for my top 10 of movie bad girls coming soon.

  • Bop

    Famke Janssen, Rutger Hauer and Paul Verhoeven are Holland’s pride.

  • Stalkeye

    Upvote plus ten!!

    Ya gots Cred, Meng!

  • Bop

    Thanks, mang.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    What on earth are you referring to? I’m completely innocent! *giggle* 😉

  • Stalkeye

    Max Zorin Fuck the World!!!

    Check out his severance package plan for former employees!

  • Bop

    Your friends are not friends, They should have hooked you up.

  • Yeah!
    “Good. Right on schedule.”

    That’s some cold shit!

  • Bop

    Your friends are not friends. They should have hooked you up with Famke.

  • Bop

    Thanks, mang.

  • Bop

    You need to.

  • Bop

    Sho Nuff vs Kanye West.

  • Bop

    I need to rewatch Go. I didn’t know Olyphant when I watched that movie.

  • Bop

    He should.

  • Bop

    Thanks, mang.

  • Bop

    Bloody hell. I forgot Kurrgan in Highlander.

  • Stalkeye

    That was Funny.

  • Stalkeye

    I’ll pay double!!!

  • Stalkeye

    I know, right?

  • Bop

    Ha, ha.

  • KilliK

    why, you dont like Frank?

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Friggin’ dig that flick.

  • KilliK
  • KilliK

    ditto

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    None of those guys are as cool as Bane from The Dark Knight Rises. Or Matt Damon in Interstellar. Bwahahahahahahaha!!!! 😉

    P.S. that last one – hilarious! Yes, it was amazing how Blade Runner was released in the seventies and then didn’t become popular until the nineties, wasn’t it? Truly remarkable.

    regarding this scene, listen to this funny retelling of the shooting:

    https://youtu.be/vBs1fWDrdzE?t=13m35s

  • Adapt

    Kiss of the Dragon is underrated. Great call Bop.

  • Stalkeye

    Umm…

  • Bop

    Very underrated, indeed. One of my favorite Jet Li movies.

  • Full Frontal Throttle

    Not even on your best day

  • Stalkeye

    Actually, i liked those twins that made Li break a sweat.

  • KilliK

    but he redeemed himself later, when he threw an old man in a bottomless shaft.

  • Stalkeye

    Yeah, but think of the chillllldren…!

  • Bop

    Ha, ha. Those 2 were funny. One of them was the cop in the B-13 movies.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Didnt see that one pop up at first. Yeah, he was great too.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Love the scene when Biff stands up in the coffee shop to confront Marty and the camera is looking over his shoulder as he stands straight up and Marty realizes how big the dude is. Nowadays, they would have some bs cgi karate expo to show how physically outmatched Marty was.

  • Zed

    A great villain, later ruined by ineptitude and cash grabbery. Same as Darth Vader and the Wicked Witch of the West.

  • True. he should have died with the end of the original movie.

  • Well, he did but you know…

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Wouldn’t say he was ruined. In fact, he was the only character in those Matrix sequels who wasn’t, on account of having a proper arc across the span of the trilogy and his abilities and motivation expanded on in a logical way.

  • The multiple Smith was still fun, but making him the big baddie for Matrix 3 was unnecessary.

  • franks_television

    Blade Runner was ’82. Oh wait, was that a jab at Asi?
