Bond Villains And Their Monologues | GoldenEye
GoldenEye

Big villain: Alec Trevelyan
The plan: Closest in spirit to Silva’s Skyfall scheming, married to Tinker Tailor-era grudges, Trevelyan’s plot is a revenge mission. He’s going to hack into British satellites and use them to bring London to a grinding halt. Like you need a satellite for that.

Trevelyan is the deadliest kind of villain: the good guy who’s broken bad, like 007 gone all Walter White. He knows all the “00” gadgets, has the motivation and a plan to destroy Britain’s infrastructure. Sadly as we know, vengeance without explanatory exposition is just pissing in the wind for a self-respecting Bond villain, so Trevelyan gives 007 the full monty.

Giveaway speech: “It’s not just erasing bank records – it’s everything on every computer in greater London. Tax records, stock market, credit ratings, land records, criminal records… in 16 minutes the United Kingdom will re-enter the Stone Age.”

What he should have done: Shot him.

4 RE: ?
It is because the new Bond "is smart and has great plot and the vilains aren't silly" so they couldn't find such a moment in the new bond films... More
