In the movies, the bad guys are commonly depicted as being so low, so loathsome, that by the end of the movie even the most sweet and innocent housewife is picturing in her mind the most violent, grisly and permanent way for the bad guy to meet his end, because there’s no question at all that the bad guy is just plain bad for everyone, and has just got to go.
But in real life, you seldom come across such a bad guy that can be as utterly loathsome, so low, so cowardly and yet so holistically evil that they can be agreed upon as a total villain.
Well, I think our wait is over. Enter BBC Panorama’s John Sweeney.
Please, watch this video. If by the end of it you can think of a better real-life villain, let me know.
Sweeney Part 1:
Mike Rinder is pretty close, and by the end of the video above you’ve got to sort of hate him too in the same way as you hate that dirty old English soldier from Braveheart that tries to lick Wallace’s wife & gets her executed. Not quite the same level, but close.
