On the back of the movie Pitch Black, it quotes a reviewer saying the character Riddick is, “the best excuse to root for the bad guy since Arnold in the original Terminator.” While I agree that Riddick is a cool character, he’s not technically the “bad guy” in Pitch Black. He is a bad guy as a person, but he’s not the main villain in the movie. He’s actually kind of the hero of the movie. The aliens eating everyone are the villains in the movie.
That got me thinking, who is the movie villain that you most want to win in the end? Which villain do you root for the most?
For me, it’s got to be Gerard Butler as Clyde Shelton in Law Abiding Citizen. He was a guy that had a horrible thing happen to him and did something about it. As you’re watching the movie, you like Jamie Foxx as the hero, Nick Rice, a guy who is trying to do his job and protect his family. However, you still find yourself hoping that Clyde is able to pull it off. By the way, this movie is freakin’ awesome and if you haven’t seen it yet, you’re missing something great.
That’s mine. What’s yours? Which movie villain did you root for?
