A few years back, the American Film Institute ranked the 100 greatest movie heroes and villains (50 of each). Now, I'll be the first to admit that the AFI has had some questionable picks on many of its lists over the years, and this one is no exception. So here's the deal. I am going to give you the top ten from their villain list, and you will then rank each villain as "great" or "overrated."

I have once again included polls, but don't forget to leave plenty of comments.

Here is a link to the entire list.

http://www.afi.com/docs/tvevents/pdf/handv100.pdf

Feel free to add any other villains to this list. They do not have to be on the AFI list. I also know that a few great villains have been introduced since this list was made.

#10. The Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Overrated. I will admit that the Queen is pretty evil, but I just think that's she's a little to high on this list. I'm not convinced that she's even the best Disney villain. I am a little partial to Ursula the sea witch. Seriously, is the Queen a better villain than Noah Cross in Chinatown? I think not.

#9. Ragen MacNeil from The Exorcist: Great or Overrated?

Way overrated. First of all, I must admit that I am not a fan of the movie. I don't think it's that scary or interesting. Secondly, I think listing her as a villain on this list is all wrong. Technically, shouldn't Satan or the demon be the villain. Ragen is just the host for the parasite. I question even ranking her in the top fifty.

#8. Phyllis Dietrichson from Double Indemnity: Great or Overrated?

Great. I must first state that Phyllis is probably not the greatest femme fatale ever; that probably belongs to Jane Greer's character from Out of the Past. However, that movie is not nearly as well known, and I do love Double Indemnity.

Overrated. Though I think she is a nice over the top villain, I am not sold that she is in the top ten of all time. However, she should get some credit for encouraging unfaithful husbands to think twice before cheating.

Great. I don't know if he should be #2, but he is a great villain. Norman's victim/psycho vulnerability makes him one of the most intriguing villains. In some ways I lump him the same category as Ragen MacNeil, since he is not entirely in control of his actions. However, Norman stills chills me to the bone.

Robert "Bob" Rusk aka The Knecktie Killer from Hitchcock's movie Frenzy.

Truly creepy villain who kills and rapes women and then leaves a necktie around their knecks as his calling card. he then kills his friends ex wife in a shocking scene, pins it on his friend who goes to jail for the crime, and then ups the ante by killing his friends girl friend (in one of the most understated murder scenes ever filmed, but truly effective in its subtlety).

He has the surface charm of the bloke down the block you can have a drink at the pub with to his friends, but there is no finesse about him at all when he reveals his true self(unlike say Hnnibal Lecter who is truly brilliant but also theatrical and plays mind games with his victims).


This guy is just a vicious killer and predator, which is what makes him scarier than most Hitchcockian villains. but he has just enough smarts to get away with his sprees again and again.

(Not saying by the way that he is a likable villain or that he is someone you like to watch, but rather he's a good villain because he truly is a scary character and with no redeeming qualities whatsoever).

Dr. Strangelove wasn't a literal villain, but rather an embodiment of the idea, held during the cold war, that a nuclear exchange was "winnable".

Hans Gruber (Rickman) in Die Hard, the original, turned in one of the more timeless performances of villainy, and would be in my top ten.


To elaborate on this excellent comment...

Gruber was an egomaniac with an inferiority complex (bragging about his expensive suits and his classical education to people he was holding at gunpoint) who was also brilliant, vain, witty, and a cold-blooded killer.

One of the most complex and interesting movie villains with excellent "chemistry" between Rickman and Bruce Willis.
