While you can have a great film without a great villain, it isn't easy to do. A lot of a movie's success comes down to the antagonist, and when the big bad proves to be a weak link, it becomes much harder to enjoy a flick. Like, are you afraid of Steppenwolf in Justice League or Enchantress in Suicide Squad? Does the reemergence of Emperor Palpatine get you going in Rise of Skywalker? Can you do anything but laugh at Eddie Redmayne's Balen Abrasax in Jupiter Ascending? What about the two-dimensional bullies Katniss has to dispatch in The Hunger Games?
Films like The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Thor: The Dark World have their apologists, but nobody is going to bat for Electro or Malekith. So, vote up the movie villains you just can't stand and get a little catharsis in the process.
