Hasta La Vista, Common Sense: 5 Cringeworthy Last Words of Movie Villains
Why are these baddies so weird?
In movies, bad guys tend to go in the most epic way, but sometimes the villain's final utterance is so awkward, weird, or just plain funny that they stick with us long after the credits roll.
Here are some of them.
Bennett in Commando
Arnold Schwarzenegger's character, John Matrix, is in a tense final face-off with Bennett. And what does Bennett say? "John, I'm not going to shoot you between the eyes, I'm going to shoot you between the balls!" Talk about being oddly specific and a bit too over-the-top, even for a villain.
Blofeld in For Your Eyes Only
Here's a classic Bond villain, but his last words are more about food than evil plans. As Bond takes Blofeld for a helicopter flight, the baddie pleads, "I'll buy you a delicatessen! In stainless steel!" It's like he suddenly switched from being a criminal mastermind to a kitchenware salesman.
Howard Payne in Speed
Dennis Hopper's character Payne gets a bit overconfident in his final showdown with Keanu Reeves ' character, Jack. He boasts, "I'm the guy with a plan, 'cause I'm smarter than you! I'm smarter than you!" Little did he know, 10 seconds later, he literally lost his head. Not so smart, huh?
Enchantress in Suicide Squad
After a fierce battle with the Suicide Squad, Enchantress, the film's protagonist portrayed by Cara Delevingne and faced with her imminent end, taunts Rick Flag with the words, "You don't have the balls." It’s so hilarious to hear it from an ancient, once dormant, spirit.
Jimmy in Road House
Jimmy, the baddie in Road House, delivers a line that's a bit too much information. He says to the protagonist, "I used to f*** guys like you in prison!" It's meant to be intimidating, but ends up being more awkward than anything.
