The 50 Best Villains in Movie History

43. Dr. René Belloq

Played By: Paul Freeman
Movie: Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)

Dr. René Belloq is your classic asshole in a fancy suit. The French archaeologist makes it his job to one-up Jones by any means necessary. His preferred method? Stealing without shame.

The uncompromisingly greedy villain is almost child-like in the way he grabs the things he wants. Unlike Indy, who would donate his findings to museums, Belloq's ruled by money and would sell his antiques to the highest bidder.

A true testament to his malevolence, Belloq often let Jones get his hands dirty only to steal the goods from him once the job was done. No shame in his game. TA
