"Are you gonna bark all day, little doggie, or are you gonna bite?" Mr Blonde

Played By: Michael Madsen
Film: Reservoir Dogs

Why He's On The List: We hear evidence for and see it against, but the great thing about 'Toothpick' Vic Vega is that you can't believe he's capable of committing his atrocities until you actually see them: that is the hallmark of a psychopath. And his 'moment in the sun', as it were, is magnificent - a cool, cruel torture sequence as meaningless as it is vicious. Arguably the scene that put Tarantino on the map, it walks dangerously close to, yet never crosses the line, between making violence horrific and making it cool.

Finest Hour: Breaking midway through torturing Marvin the cop to step outside and get a can of petrol from the boot of his car, in a single shot.
