They may be villains, but they still had a heart. Or at least an agenda! For this list, we’re looking at scenes in which big screen baddies saved the heroes, whether they be misunderstood villains like Roy Batty in “Blade Runner” (1982), temporary allies such as Thresh in “The Hunger Games” (2012), or the devil himself, as in “South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut” (1999). What’s YOUR favorite movie villain from our picks? Let us know in the comments!
