Paper: An Analysis of the Movie Villains

Avillain that people fear most is a terrorist. Terrorists are usually a big gang of people from one organization led by one top guy. To be a terrorist a character usually has to make a strong negative statement against their target. In the movie Swordfish, John Travolta plays a terrorist who uses computers to hack into secret governmental programs and steals millions of dollars. He is considered a terrorist simply because during the movie he terrorizes many lives to get at what he wants. Using demands to get his point across and if his demand would not get met he would use action. Not all villains have to kill to be considered a villain. The villain that needs nothing but the thirst of greed to lead him into stealing is a bandit. Bandits have always been known to have a big greed towards money. Whether they rob banks, homes, or even cars, they will be considered as villains. In the movie Bandits, Bruce Willis plays a bank robber. He uses the power of greed to lead him towards all his crimes. Some times bandits will stop at nothing to get their hands on the money. The last villain is one of my favorite's villains out in the movies market. Gangsters have always been around in the real world and that is why there are so many movies based on gangsters. Whether the gangsters are in the mafia, street gangs, or just a bunch of buddies, they have always been linked to doing some mischief. A basic definition of a gangster is; a member of an organized group of violent criminals. In Goodfellas, Robert De Niro plays a mafia thug out to no good. De Niro plays a very dangerous gangster that is linked to the Italian mafia and who will stop at nothing to get his money. He is considered a gangster because he does not act alone. De Niro has many bosses that tell him what he needs to do and he rarely acted alone. After placing villains into five categories, it should be much easier to distinguish the many different types of villain that are out ion Hollywood....
