Film villains you feel for?

Nah I can’t agree with that like. You’re going to have to convince me.
Born into a family dynasty as a women with no rights at all.
An arranged marriage sees her tied to a fat, hateful alcoholic who regularly cheats on her with prostitutes and any other women who'll have him, all the while professing his true love is another woman long dead.
Has three children to another man, one she has actual deep feelings for, who circumstance has it is also her brother, but nonetheless now she has her true calling that is evident and undeniable throughout the series - the blind love for and protection of her own at any cost. It was never about the throne for her, simply the people she loved.
Over the course of the show all three of those children are killed two of those children are murdered, and her youngest takes her own life. Her father is also killed by her younger brother who she can only assume is also responsible for the death of her firstborn - who was a bit of a shit, but she knows this and doesn't condone it but is forever judged by his actions.
Her daughter is taken from her and sent to Dorne, she anticipates her return after a brutal year of subjigation and humiliation at the hands of her daugher in law and a brutal authoritarian cult, only to receive her remains as she is murdered for literally no reason at all.
Said sinister authoritarian cult leaves her bereft, and the eventual overthrowing of said cult results in the suicide of her youngest son, whom they have brainwashed.
She takes the title of Queen but it's all that's left for her. She's not a ruler, or a despot. She only wants to protect what she loves. She still has her strength and resolution but she's long broken. Then her brother turns his back on her, too.
Her story ends with his return when they are both crushed to death as the returning Queen we've all been rooting for massacres an entire city.
She should have been allowed to abandon Kings Landing and leave with Jamie, the only love she has left, abdicate, crack on and do their own thing in peace. Instead they died to satisfy an irrational blood lust. All that can be said is that that irritating Pete Doherty lookalike Arya didn't do her in.
She deserved better. IMHO.
 
Any of the James Bond villains……..no matter how much of diabolical evil geniuses they are, they can’t win against that smarmy bastard 007

Ah, been about 20 years since I saw it & only saw it once, so forgot about the finer details. Dont feel quite so sorry for him now!
Can't remember how much of that was in the film tbh. Those are the highlights of his his back story in the book, the sister was one of Lector's patients which is how he knew the score.

Been a long while since I watched Hannibal, think he 'only' had her forcefully sterilised so she couldn't inherit by having a kid.

Scar in the Lion King. He knew how brutal and hierarchical the fiefdom of the Lions was and genuinely wanted a change for the better.
Edit: and any of the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park

Spidey villain Mysterio. Jake Gyllenhall is brilliant. I felt he never was a true evil villain. Not the sort that robs a bank of over $10m or just wants to take over the world. Just someone desperate to be admired as the hero.

Hey if your blood is composed of chloroform, acetone, cyclohexylamine and acetic acid its only natural that you are going to be a bit testy around people.

Good post. Cersei is no worse than the other killers in the series (eg. Daenerys) but seems to have a worse reputation
