It's all in the name and discuss.

Was thinking about this the other day after watching MR. It's expected that Bond villains have a unique death… Should this be the case? I've always liked how it's Dr No's idiosyncrasy that fails him in his time of need, but feel Rosa Klebb's simple death is much more compelling. But then, I like the grand death of Alec, and the brutality of Carver's as well…

I'm deciding between Klebb's and Alec's for the above reasons, but also Zorin's, probably just for the laugh Walken gives as he slips away…

Dr. Kananga, of course. He really blew it.

Agree with you about Zorin. And I think Zorin is one of the better villains of the series, but lot of people seem to think Walken was sleepwalking through the role.

Not sure why Koskov is on the list since he didn't die.

If you want to open up this thread a bit, I'd widen it to include all deaths in the series.

I think Baron Samedi died in a pretty gruesome manner. Or did he?

I think for dramatic reasons May Day's death is fairly strong as well; the way she stares Zorin down as she prepares to ruin his plan...powerful stuff.

Personally, I think Killifer's death was the best in the series. Dalton played his lines perfectly: "You earned it, you keep it..........old buddy" with just the right emphasis on "old buddy".

Being fed to piranhas (Helga Brandt) or being thrown in a pressurization tank (Krest) was a fairly grisly way to go.

Stacy Sutton always dies a horrible, gruesome death in my fantasies. Does that count?

I thought I'd limit to the main villains, and I included Koskov because the fact he didn't die might be something… Or maybe he did actually go back to Russia in a bag…

I have never heard anyone say Walken was sleep walking through the role… He's in my top 5 villains for sure.

I think people jump to the conclusion that Walken was sleepWalken because of the simple truth that his character is never given a long and memorable monologue like in other films. His story about the watch in PULP FICTION, when he describes Denzel Washington's "art of death" in MAN ON FIRE, describing the pantomime in TRUE ROMANCE, and whatever else that is escaping my mind. He's great in A VIEW TO A KILL, but he's never given that one moment where we see him relish the kind of rich dialogue he got in other films. A few bright spots "I'm happiest... IN DA SADDLE", but nothing that even ranks up there with the best Bond villain monologues. That proposal of his about Main Strike could have been a great time to give him something to chew on, but I think the most he got out of that scene was when the model rises up and he raises his arms up like he's a musical conductor. The film doesn't give him the best, but he at least gives it his all and that makes me wish the film overall was better than it turned out.

By "diplomatic bag" I do believe Gimli meant body bag.

So yes, Koskov met an unfortunate accident.

Sanchez's had particular punch. The cigarette lighter, his realisation and then the biggest bang that side of the border for years.

Yeah Sanchez's death was pretty cool. Great payoff to a great villain.

I also really like Carver's death in TND. Say what you will, but having Bond force Carver in front of the drill and keep in there so that he can't escape - and if he did, the drill would get him anyway - is actually pretty brutal.

Looking at the list it just had to be Dr No, hoist on his own petard so to speak. Latterly deaths (not just in Bond) seem more a case of audience gratification so you end up with something awkwardly overblown or overtly unprofessional (I'm looking at you QoS).

I would have to go with Sanchez. Previous Bond films of course had great death scenes but that one had a bit more of a punch to me given how personal (to Bond) the film was.

Good call. As close, perhaps, Brosnan could get to Moore's kicking the car over the ledge. At least his last line to Carver wasn't: "This is for Paris!"

Cheers, thought I was gunna get crucified for that… But I suppose it is like Locque's death; never really thought of it like that.

Heh if it was in the Craig era, we probably would have got the 'this is for Paris'.

Brosnan should've said "We'll always have Paris" and bitten Carver's shoulder.
