The Complete History of Bond Villains

Mollaka

Appeared In: Casino Royale (2006)
Played By: Sebastien Foucan
Diabolical Weapon: Parkour
Killed By: An explosion Bond sets off

In one of the most exhilarating and freshest action sequences in a 007 movie, Bond has to chase Mallaka through the streets of Madagascar and above the city on a construction crane. The use of parkour and practical special effects made this an absolutely stunning scene to behold, and it masked the fact that Mallaka didn’t really have a personality. All we know is that he was a bomb maker working for an associate of La Chiffre. Really, he only exists to take part in this scene.

People might not care about all of the complicated plot developments or political allusions in Casino Royale, but chances are they won’t be able to stop talking about this chase after the film is over, even if they don’t even remember Mollaka’s name.
