How to create the perfect antagonist? Just use a terrorist who can destroy the world and kill mercilessly. Over the years, Hollywood has continually been producing movies with heinous terrorists. Be it terrorist with superhuman powers or genius intellect, they all terrify. For this list, I have taken in account the character’s motives, deeds, weaknesses and impact on the film. So, here is the list of most evil movie terrorists.
12. Abduwali Muse (Captain Phillips)
Starting off the list is the real deal. Essayed by Barkhad Abdi, the terrorist is a pirate. .The real life terrorist is the sole survivor of four pirates who hijack the MV Maersk Alabama in April of 2009 and then held Captain Richard Phillips hostage for ransom. He kills shoots and just terrifies all.
11. Khan (Star Trek Into Darkness)
The Augmented human once controlled more than a quarter of the Earth during the “Eugenics Wars”. His terrorism roots from the classic “want to rule the world”. He has genius level intellect, and can manipulate people to work for him. Portrayed by two actors, Benedict Cumberbatch’s version is truly menacing. He even is willing to ally with the enemy for the “big picture” – the terrorism.
10. Castor Troy (Face/Off)
