What Kind of Action Movie Villain Are You?

You can’t have an action hero without a worthy villain. The yin to his yang, The spaghetti to his meatballs. The person that intends to destroy our hero by any means necessary. But what kind of person is our hero dealing with? Well, there’s plenty to pick from:

The Psycho: No rhyme or conscious. He’s insane and loves it. He will kill anybody that gets in his way and stop at nothing to get what he wants. He also has a penchant to maniacal laughter and antagonizing.

The Euro Trash: What is it about Europeans that makes them hate us so much? They will stop at nothing from getting back at America. Never travel alone or with your family because they will find you and kidnap your family. They’re also some greedy bastards also.

The Mobster: The mafioso with a vendetta. He don’t like people messing with his drug business and he certainly doesn’t like cops. If you’re a cop that does his job, then you’re on his bad list for sure. He has control over all the criminals and low lives in the area and numerous places for debauchery for scum to breed.

The Super Villain: He’s mostly tied with James Bond, but don’t hesitate to shoot on sight. He has unlimited amounts of henchmen and secret lairs for him to calculate his plans on killing you slowly and painfully.

The Terrorist: He has plans to represent his cause. They will involve explosives and guns. A lot of them. He has patience, smarts, and a lack of compassion. A dangerous foe indeed.

About the Author

My name is Omar and I love action movies. I grew up loving action films thanks in part to my father who would deliver a healthy dose of Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Willis, and Seagal in my movie diet. Ever since then, I continue to love the genre more and more and go along perfectly with my love for the horror genre. What other movie genre can specialize in giving you pure adrenaline and excitement in every turn?
