The criteria for this article is the same as in my previous articles Cinema’s Greatest Villains: The 1970’s and Cinema’s Greatest Villains: The 1980’s: the villains must be from live-action films-no animated features-and must pose some type of direct of indirect lethal threat. The villains can either be individuals or small groups that act as one unit.
The villains must be human or human in appearance. Also, individuals that are the central protagonists/antiheroes of their respective films were excluded.

When I first heard of this film, I thought it might be going for parody like the Scary Movie franchise, but the movie is played with a straight face (although with a slight tongue-in-cheek feel), which makes it even more amusing.
A couple arrives at a friend’s house for brunch, only to learn during the extremely awkward gathering that the friends are getting a divorce, but there’s no escape from the messy situation because a series of dirty bombs have been detonated downtown.

Other notable Tom Noonan performances: Phoenix (Danny Cannon, 1998, USA).
Christopher Walken as Brad Whitewood Sr.in At Close Range (James Foley, 1986, USA):
Having once described his role in this film as “the hillbilly Lucifer”, Walken is incredible as a rural crime boss bringing his son,
Dr No also marked the debuts of Bernard Lee (the first of 11 films as M) and Lois Maxwell (the first of 14 as Miss Moneypenny). Lee had a brief turn as Tarmut in Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell (1973) and despite never starring in a Hammer horror, Maxwell turned up in their early fifties thrillers Lady in the Fog (1953) and Mantrap (1954).
