some of my favorites...

darth vadar,
first we fear his cruel evil mechanical coldness, then we see hope as the father behind the mask, then we find forgiveness for him as saves his son, then we adore him as a child, then we hate him again as he transforms, a great realtionship with the father of masked bad guys...

agent smith
cool calm and collective, not to mention hard to kill and at the end final does get to kill the good guy...

jaws (the shark)
one of the most feared movie villians, chased thousands of real folks out on to the beach...a villian with his own theme song..nuff said

terminator
an awesome villian, man made machine perfected, unstopable, he was one of those rare bad guys that was the focal point of the movie...

finally i want to mention my last two villians both may or could portray real life folks one actually did...Kiefer Sutherland in Phone Booth was awsome, visually acting is hard enough, but coming off as a bad guy for entire movie by just using your voice, and getting away with it at the end really good job, great writing, great acting...

finally Yuri Orlov (Nicolas Cage) the bad guy who is based on a real life bad guy, blame him, cheer him, he makes you want to just shoot him in the head, but in the end does it really matter...maybe, but no doubt Yuri has lead to the death and slaughter of tens of thousands, and yet he cannot be stopped...

My favorite villain of all was Rutger Hauer as Roy Batty in Blade Runner.

I'm not just saying this because I am some sort of technopunk. I think my major draw to that movie was Hauer's performance. He's got the ultimate lines at the end of his life because he isn't gloating. You feel sorry for him in that little space of time, where before you couldn't wait for someone to get rid of him.

It makes me sad that Hauer hasn't had better roles throughout his career.

He was great in The Hitcher, too!

As far as "Hans Gruber" is concerned, you've got to see CLOSETLAND. He will make you genuinely hate him.

Darth Vader is the greatest cinema villian. We have his rise, fall and rise through 6 movies. As somewhat bad the prequels are...it's still the most compeling tale ever spun in cinema history!

What other villian tries to kill his own kids for power??

You mean aside from every god, king and witch in Greek mythology?
