The Ten Spot: Best Bond Baddies!

Look after Mr. Bond. See that some harm comes to him.

This line, oh so typical of the James Bond villains, occurs early in MOONRAKER, far from one of the better Bonds, and spoken by a fairly tepid villain, Hugo Drax. What does this prove? Even at their most mediocre, Bond villains are still awesome.

To be sure- we’ve seen some great ones over the years, and now, with Javier Bardem as Silva in SKYFALL- opening next week (read my review HERE), we have another great one to add to a rogue’s galley like no other. I'm sure many of you will be marathoning the movies (I sure have) to gear up for the latest Bond adventure, making this a great time to examine the franchise's best baddies. And so, without further adieu, let me present my personal top ten Bond Baddies!

Honorable Mention: Elektra King

Forget Renard, Sophie Marceau's Elektra King was the true villain in THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH. She uses her feminine wiles to not only seduce Bond, but- in a nicely played bit by Brosnan, actually makes him kinda fall for her, and feel sympathy for her in the end. The finale, where he coldly kills her as a disapproving, teary-eyed M looks on really drives home the differences between Brosnan's Bond, and Daniel Craig's. While Craig has a somewhat mother-son style relationship with the cold M, Brosnan barely tolerates her in his films, and his relationship with King is the key to their dynamic.

10- Dr. No

The baddie that started it all- Dr. Julius No, as played by Joseph Wiseman. While the Fu-Manchu make-up is dated, the larger-than-life scheme, his cool voice, and steel hands set the stage for much of what was to come. Despite only showing up two-thirds of the way into the movie, Wiseman makes a huge impact, and the final fight with Connery is a good one. Trivia- Wiseman actually voices the role of Blofeld in THUNDERBALL.

9- Max Zorin

How could I not include the one Bond villain played by Christopher Walken on my list? While, as written, Zorin comes off as little more than an eighties-style Goldfinger on a diet (replace gold with microchips, and Oddjob with Grace Jones' May Day), Walken embellishes the character with enough of his own quirkiness to make the part memorable. The final axe-fight on the Golden-Gate bridge is pretty great, even if the film is only so-so (it's actually better than most people remember). I'd actually love to see Walken come back as another villain, as nearly thirty years later, he truly looks like a different man, and would be easy to accept in another part.

8- Sanchez

One of the few "real world" villains of the series, Robert Davi's smooth, sophisticated drug lord Sanchez, seems to be a thinly disguised version of Pablo Escobar. A cruel bastard, who in addition to regularly whipping his girlfriend, also feeds Bond's BFF Felix Leiter to the sharks (BIG mistake). Of course, Dalton's tough as nails Bond takes him down in one of the most gruesome kills of the franchise, but for a while there- Sanchez, as played by the cooler than cool Davi, seems pretty formidable.

7- Scaramanga

Great villain. Terrible movie (in my opinion- the worst). Too bad, as Christopher Lee's Scaramanga deserved a lot better. Throughout much of the film, he's actually a relatively sympathetic guy, at one point telling a heart-breaking story about how the only friend he ever had was a pet elephant that was killed by it's cruel master- who subsequently became Scaramanga's first victim. One of the things that annoys me about MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN is Bond- as played by Roger Moore (who hadn't yet found his groove) and his sanctimonious treatment of Scaramanga, who he demonizes for killing for money (as opposed to killing for king and country as Bond does). All in all, one of the more interesting villains, brilliantly played by Lee- but, again, the movie is virtually unwatchable.

6- Jaws

OK- so Jaws isn't really a villain, and more of a henchman, but it can't be denied that Richard Kiel made a huge impression on audiences in 1977's THE SPY WHO LOVED ME. He was so popular that they brought him back for the next movie, but- in one of the franchise's dumbest moves, his popularity amongst kids led to him becoming a good guy in the climactic scenes. Sigh. Oh well, throughout SPY and much of MOONRAKER, he's pretty damn memorable.

5- 006

Pierce Brosnan's era kicked off with one of the best Bond villains in years- courtesy of Sean Bean's Alec Trevelyan aka 006. Brosnan- who was probably in the prime of his life when he started playing Bond (not as boyish as he was on REMINGTON STEELE, but still relatively young) and Sean Bean, who could have probably played Bond himself (and apparently was screen-tested) was a good physical match. In fact, his high-ranking here doesn't have a heck of a lot to do with the characterization, which was only so-so, but rather the great mano-a-mano fight that caps the film off, with Bond evenly matched for probably the first time since Red Grant. Sadly, the rest of Brosnan's villains were terribly weak.

4- Silva

I know, I know- isn’t it a little soon to be declaring Javier Bardem’s Silva one of the best baddies of the fifty year-old series? Well, maybe- but the fact remains Bardem is excellent. Truth be told, there hasn’t been a really great villain since 006 in GOLDENEYE, and Silva makes up for crappy ones like Dominic Green or Robert Carlyle’s Renard (probably the worst baddie of the franchise). In many ways, he’s like Bond gone amuck- and the similarities between the two, especially in their respective relationships with Judi Dench’s M, makes SKYFALL one of the most riveting films in the franchise’s history- and for my money, Bardem seriously deserves some Oscar-love.

3- Auric Goldfinger

No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!

Without speaking a single word of English (he was dubbed) Gert Frobe created one of the all-time best Bond villains, and the prototypical megalomaniacal baddie. His Auric Goldfinger wants to irradiate the world’s gold supply, thus increasing the value of his own reserves 100 fold. If he happens to kill thousands of people along the way, so be it. Unlike Shaw’s Red Grant, or even Joseph Wiseman’s Dr. No, Goldfinger, weighing a porty 300 pounds, in no match for Bond physically, but his cunning and power is what makes him a threat. Heck, if he hadn’t let Bond get inside his head, he could have ended the franchise, with Connery’s Bond almost losing his private parts when strapped underneath Goldfinger’s laser (possibly the franchise’s most iconic moment).

2- Red Grant

Of all the Bond baddies, none ever posed the physical threat that Robert Shaw’s Red Grant did. An evil doppelganger to Connery’s Bond, Shaw is amazing as the sadistic, cunning Grant. For the first two-thirds of the movie, he never utters a single word, until meeting Bond aboard the Orient Express, where he poses as a foppish fellow agent. This ruse gives way to the ice-cold killer we all know him to be, and his brutal battle with Connery’s Bond is probably, twenty-one films later, still the franchise’s best fight.

1- Ernst Stavro Blofeld

Ernst Stavro Blofeld is EASILY the best Bond baddie of them all. Having cast a dark shadow over five full Bond yarns (along with a nameless cameo in FOR YOUR EYES ONLY), Blofeld dominated the franchise in the sixties. For reasons unknown, the producers Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman kept recasting the part- but to me, the best of the bunch is Donald Pleasance in YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE.

Essentially, there would be no Dr. Evil without the Nehru-suited, scarred, cat-loving Pleasance incarnation of the role. A tiny fellow, with a totally shaved head, Pleasance should have played the part over and over. Watching it for the umpteenth time last weekend, I noticed that his Blofeld never, ever blinks- which makes him all the more disturbing. Afterwards, the role was taken over by Telly Savalas (way too American, suave, and sane), and then Charles Grey (way too fey- more like a closeted English politician that a memorable baddie). If it were up to me, in the next two John Logan-scripted Bond films, Blofeld would be reintroduced- as I’m sure the right actor, mixed with Daniel Craig’s gritty Bond, could make an iconic villain (my crazy choice would be Bryan Cranston, or- after digging into BOSS- Kelsey Grammar- a more classic-style Blofeld would be Toby Jones).

Unbderrated movie- Moore was a bit past his prime and it has 80's stink all over it, but I love it. Mayday is easily one of the best Henchmen ever.

I've gotta agree, Bardem was electrifying in the film, and I'm with Captain Thorpe on his intro. They held that one shot as he came more and more into focus as he delivered that chilling speech, which I feel is one of the better-written Bond villain speeches in a while. A defining moment for sure!

006 is one of my favourite Bond villains, because he was truly Bond's match. They were cut from the same cloth, and it was very interesting to see them pitted against each other when they had prior personal history together. The Bond films need to have more villains in this vein: vengeful military types who aren't all about the theatrics.

A View to a Kill is one of my least favourite Bond films, I think it squandered Christopher Walken's potential. He could have done so much more if given a better character, script and tone. It looked like he was going through the motions - but hey, Christopher Walken going through the motions is more entertaining than many actors at their most earnest.

YES!! Spoilers...

As soon as I saw the title of this list I was hoping Sanchez would be on it. Nobody ever gives Dalton or License to Kill any love so it's great to see him included. And yes, great chemistry with Dalton and his death scene is classic:

Sanchez looks at Bond, busted up on the ground...
Bond: Don't you even wanna know why?
Bond shows him Leiter's lighter and tosses it at Sanchez who goes up in flames.
Love Dalton and License to Kill :)

Instead of using Jaws here, you should also make a top 10 Bond henchmen list. It could have characters like Jaws, Oddjob, Tee Hee, Mayday, Nick Nack, Rosa Klebb, Xenia Onatopp, Bambi and Thumper, those acrobat twins from Octopussy, etc.

Can't say I disagree with the list as a whole, although I do think Drax is pretty underrated. He's given some splendid dialogue, and Michael Lonsdale plays on the Space Hitler image with just enough gravitas to keep it from being outright silly. Kananga, as well; really charming performance from Yaphet Kotto with one of the best one-liners of the series: "Names is for tombstones, baby."

As for Blofeld, yeah, pretty much the obvious choice for number 1, deservedly so. I don't have a favourite

As for Blofeld, yeah, pretty much the obvious choice for number 1, deservedly so. I don't have a favourite performance out of the three actors, although I do single out Savalas' performance as being the only one that, in my opinion, hasn't been tainted by the endless parodies. Perhaps it's because he took the suave, sane slant that I can still watch him and not think of Dr. Evil (although the rest of the film is pretty great, too).

Nailed it

Even before the fight happens, we're treated to one of the most expertly scripted, acted and directed scenes of the entire series, with Bond and Grant exchanging witticisms and insults before the fists (and teeth) fly. "Red wine with fish. Well, that should have told me something." Class. Only Bond would call the villain's bluff on account of his dodgy wine choice. Still my favourite villain after all these years, as well.

Best villain of the Brosnan era, for my money; a spineless, snide mirror image of Bond. The plot holes are all over the place in this one, but Bean is in top form, chewing every bit of scenery he can get. One of the best fight scenes of the series at the climax between him and Brosnan, and it's probably one of the best villain (and Sean Bean) deaths ever committed to celluloid.

There's a really good Bond film somewhere in Golden Gun, and Lee's charmingly weird performance reinforces that. Just a shame that the rest of the film is so uneven; there's some hideously 70's campiness mixed in with some really savagely violent bits. Although Nick Nack is probably one of my top five henchmen.

The Man With The Golden Gun is not even close to the worse Bond movie. That title easily goes to For Your Eyes Only. I've been watching every Bond movie again, in sequential order (even the Woody Allen Casino Royale) over the last few weeks, and none are as terrible as For Your Eyes Only.

Blofeld was a given, but...

Le Chiffre deserves to be on this list. While he didn't do much (although did more than Dr. No), he had plenty of qualities that made his a memorable Bond foe.

But 006 should have been much higher on the list, at least #2, as he has been one of the few villains who has almost equaled Bond when it comes to cunning, strength and even charm.

Kind of figured Bloefield would be number 1, he seems the most obvious choice. Of the three picked for a reintroduction of Bloefield, I like Toby Jones best. He seems most fitting for a more natural Bond villain than the other two, who I can't help but feel would ham it up (especially Grammar). But I would love to see Bryan Cranston be a Bond villain. I think it would be an interesting twist. He's proven to be a great villain so far in Breaking Bad and Total Recall (yes, the movie sucked, but

I think Donald Pleasance definitely belongs on this list. He was iconic as Blofeld and it's a shame his interpretation has been ruined, especially for younger viewers seeing him for the first time. But his was the only great interpretation of Blofeld. Does anyone know why he was replaced by Telly Savalas? I've never understood that, he was so wrong for the part.

Admittedly, I saw Austin Powers before I saw YOLT, so I just guffawed when I saw Pleaseance. I had also see Diamonds are Forever, so Blofeld, to me, was the narrator from Rocky Horror and I loved the posh, arrogant, king's english speaking counter to Connery's scottish badass.

Also, where's the love for Le Chiffre? I wouldn't have put Jaws on here, and leave out Mads Mikkelson. Sure, his plan was to win a poker game...after trying to blow up a plane to drive up stock value. Bleeding eye?

Blofeld started off on the right foot in the earlier Bonds, but then he became a campy cartoon. 'You Only Live Twice' marks the era where Bond became a bit too silly & campy for my taste.

Connery undercover as a Japanese man? Seriously? The movie lost me with this. After that it became an over-the-top comedy.

Dr. Evil ruined this one for me

The build up for the villian is great but once he's revealed I can't help but think of Mike Myers.

No.1 for me

Was truly an equal to Bond, you actually feel Connery has met his match in the train scene but then he uses his wits to trick Grant. Not to mention their duel is one of the most iconic and memorable scenes in the franchise.

Lee was the only worth while thing...

in that crap fest of a movie. Such a shame because they really could have made a great film based around his villian.

Better than you remember??

It might be true but I try and avoid that flick cause of the vomit inducing love scene between Grace Jones and an over-the-hill Roger Moore. Walken owned the movie though no doubt.

This and Moonraker I tend to block out from my memory so I don't really remember Lee's character and was pretty surprised when I saw him on the list. I am angry at you because maybe I have to check out this shitty movie again. lol
