Film villains you feel for?

Jaws from James Bond - hidden away, forced to do his master's bidding because he's a man mountain, metal mouthed circus freak who just wants to be loved FFS.
This. Jaws obviously a bit retarded, taken advantage of, and then the poor sod gets the world's best secret agent smashing a lamp into his chomps. Almost shed a tear for him when that happened.
Matthias, Son of Deuteronomy of Gath - a criminal stoned to death in Life of Brian. He'd just had a lovely supper, and all he said to his wife was, 'That piece of halibut was good enough for Jehovah'.

Also, The Romans are portrayed as villains in the same movie. But remember what Jerusalem used to be like before sanitation?

Frankenstein's monster, poor sod.
Roy Batty in Blade Runner. And of course, Hans Gruber in Die Hard - I'd much rather see Bruce Willis go flying out the window tbh.
