All were handsome-charming-bad-boys of their movies and you would agree its cuz of their roles that the movies fared so well on the box office.
I noted the following things-
1. It’s because of these villains the heroes looked so good.
2. They acted equally well or sometimes better than our beloved heroes who had to romance the heroines and impress the audience with cheesy dialogues and flirting.
3. They never get the heroine in the end. Hmph.
4. They generally have to die brutally and the hero becomes the goody goody boy everyone admires.
5. It seems, the dark character of the villain attracts more fan following now-a-days. Why? *self questioning too*
6. The villain has to get beaten up and/or accept defeat. Not fair. He worked equally hard to come all the way to end of the movie, and then finally hero is the winner. Why? Why can’t they let the villains win?
So, I am sorry people, I like the heroes. They are our “heroes” after all, but I feel bad for the villains. They’re so good. They’re hardworking. They make the essence of a “hero”. A hero won’t be a hero if there was no villain.
