The 25 Most Memorable Communist Villains In Movies

13. General Georgi Koskov, The Living Daylights (1987)

Played by: Jeroen Krabbé

In the early James Bond movies of the ‘60s and ‘70s, 007’s communist foes from the original Ian Flemming novels were usually worked for fictional evil organizations, as opposed to real-life ones like the KGB. But as time moved on, Bond started to face off against real-world communist threats, and in The Living Daylights he battled General Georgi Koskov, a former KGB agent who tries to play both sides of the Cold War for his own gain. His deception gets his communist card revoked by the film’s end, but he’s still a worthy entry to the hammer-and-sickle club.
