10 Movies Where The Bad Guys Win

natural born killer 10 Movies Where The Bad Guys Win

Delivery boy Mickey Knox falls in love with customer Mallory Wilson. He soon helps her kill her abusive father and enabling mother, beginning their macabre journey down Route 666.

Their M.O.: every few miles, they attack everyone within their site, invariably leaving only one person alive to tell the tale.

The two are made famous by unscrupulous reporter Wayne Gale, as they run across the countryside, pursued by the equally sadistic Jack Scagnetti.

Just before the trial, a ratings-whoring interview by the same reporter who made them famous leads to pandemonium, not just within the prison itself, but nationwide.

A satire of the media, public opinion, and the modern attitude toward violence.

matchstick men 10 Movies Where The Bad Guys Win

Meet Roy and Frank, a couple of professional small-time con artists. These scams net the flim-flam men a few hundred here, another thousand there, which eventually adds up to a lucrative partnership. Roy’s private life, however, is not so successful.

An obsessive-compulsive agoraphobe with no personal relationships to call his own, Roy is barely hanging on to his wits, and when his idiosyncrasies begin to threaten his criminal productivity he’s forced to seek the help of a psychoanalyst just to keep him in working order.

While Roy is looking for a quick fix, his therapy begets more than he bargained for: the revelation that he has a teenage daughter–a child whose existence he suspected but never dared confirm. What’s more troubling, 14-year-old Angela wants to meet the father she never knew. At first, Angela’s appearance disrupts her neurotic father’s carefully ordered routine.

Soon, however, with his own unique spin on parenthood, Roy begins to enjoy a relationship he never dreamed of having with his daughter. But while he develops paternal feelings for the 14-year-old, she’s developing a fascination with Daddy’s questionable career.

  7. Mr Brooks

  8. Pirates of Silicon Valley

  9. The corporation

  10. @Sam – nice picks. I thought Primal Fear should be on here as well.

    Is it possible for a post to miss the point of itself? This should be movies where the bad guy wins, but also isn’t the main protaganist of the movie.

    Sorry, this is a weak list. It’s basically ‘Movies where the hero commits crimes’

  11. Arlington Road is a MUST SEE. Loved the ending! And yes, Swordfish as well.

  12. Skeleton Key perhaps?
    crappy movie but meets the standards of “bad guy wins”

  13. Keep the posting up. I never thought I would find an individual that had close to the same grasp of worldly knowledge.

  14. The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas? i suppose Father would be the bad guy… and in his way, he won….

  15. funny games!! totally evil!

  16. I saw a movie about 3 yrs ago. The bad guy won. They went from house to house killing the families. At the end they pushed the woman overboard and went to the next house. Does anyone know the name? I think it was robert carliyle or the other english actor
