Vader seem to do nothing that interesting as a villain to me.
edit: when you post explain why you think it’s overrated or not and don't simply just say yes or no answers it’s annoying honestly
This topic is locked from further discussion.
I wouldn't say he is overrated. He is definitively one of the best movie villains of all time. I do think emperor Palpatine is underrated though, due to Vader's popularity eclipsing his. When you look at the story as a whole he is definitely the main villain, and it seems ep 9 is going to further push that agenda.
Vader still GOAT , thanos is the one overrated his plan makes no sense , trash looking , no signature soundtrack , no masterpiece movie , CGI Only.
Ill answer why Vader is a great villain
1) It redifined the role of the villain in the history of films , before it rarely villains were so beloved and effective and menacing
2) The signature soundtrack and dialogue , not much but all was great.
3) His look , the mysterious presence and his slow running making us questions
4) The voice
5) The twist and scene , releved it was the father of the hero.
6) The mystery. in the original movie we know nothing about vader basically in the first movie he has no origin story (good writing like joker , lecter and anton chirurgh) Obi-wan tell his former that he turned evil , but we are not sure hes a men or an alien or some commander (like palpatine) , we dont know why he breaths like that and why he touches and hits people. We learn he is a tragic charachter in the prequels and he has a great devlopment , very good writing except Attack of the clones lovestory...
7) His role in the plot of ROTJ
8) he was the hearth and depth of 6 movies , and he never failed with the mask on. Basically the lighting of the saber plus his costume design.. his powers , his intelligence , his threatning confidence.
You either like and get it or you dont , he is simply great in everything , exactly like The Joker or Lecter which are my fav villains aswell there is no repliacting them , each in their own league in their genre , you cant make another Vader and thats why he is great aswell. Ask me some questions if you want.
Not at all.
Vader is one of the most defining and influential villains ever. Great balance of depth, mystery, badassery, complexity, and is connected to the protagonist in the biggest and more influential movie twist of its time.
The only one that comes close is Nolan Joker.
