Top Ten Favorite James Bond Villains: #9 Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd from Diamonds Are Forever

Yeah, that’s right, I decided to throw two of the more controversial James Bond characters onto the list. Some people like them as villains and some people dislike them as villains, but most people I think would at least remember them as another two of the most comical characters from the James Bond movie series.

Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd were a couple of criminals who helped Blofeld to smuggle diamonds, so that he could take over a satellite in outer space and hold the world hostage with a laser cannon, a pretty screwy plot. They ruthlessly killed people with explosives and scorpions, including an elderly woman who they drowned in a river.

Not only were these two villains incredibly ruthless, they were incredibly cartoonish and comical. They were full of quips and quirkiness. They tried to kill James Bond in some pretty clever ways such as almost having him burned to death in a crematorium and having him trapped inside of an oil pipe. When all of those attempts fail, they have one final show down with James Bond on a boat, but make the mistake of confronting him face to face without any of their under handed tricks. When you get rid of their back stabbing ways, they’re both pretty easy to dispatch of.
