10 Movie Astronauts You Wouldn’t Want To Be Stuck In Space With | Battlefield Earth (2000)
Battlefield Earth (2000)

Character: Terl (John Travolta)

A sneering, superior and insufferable villain, he’s the sort of panto baddie you’d rather see launched into space on the outside of a rocket. With a ridiculous wannabe Rasta-Klingon hairdo and that stupid nose plug thingy, Terl is a fashion disaster and an alien in serious need of some attitude adjustment. Then there’s that time his race enslaved all of humanity and got taken down by a bunch of idiots with a Harrier Jump Jet and some underdeveloped plotting. He’d be better staying at home and entering cosplay competitions than going anywhere with us.
