10 Times James Bond Turned Into A Complete Psychopath
9. That Time He Had Xenia Onatopp Crushed To Death - GoldenEye
By far the killiest Bond of them all, Pierce Brosnan's 007 personally amassed a body count of 135 during his four-film tenure (beating longest-serving Bond Roger Moore's paltry 90 by a good few bodies). A fair number of those were taken down in action-packed murder-fest Goldeneye, home to one of Brosnan's fiercest kill-and-quip combos. Having seemingly met his match and then some in Xenia Onatopp (Famke Janssen), a Russian rival with a similar passion for sex, death and a combination of the two where possible, Bond predictably takes issue when Goldeneye's lead henchwoman drops in from a hovering chopper to beat him up in some South American jungle. Gaining access to her AK-47, 007 has the opportunity to dispose of Onatopp in a way that a less troubled secret spy might. Instead of simply shooting Onatopp, though, Bond decides to strap her to the helicopter circling above, shoot the helicopter, then watch as Onatopp is propelled away to be crushed to death, tangled up in a tree while the chopper crashes behind her. Bond's diagnosis: "She always did enjoy a good squeeze." Ha?
Lover of film, writer of words, pretentious beyond belief. Thinks Scorsese and Kubrick are the kings of cinema, but PT Anderson and David Fincher are the dashing young princes. Follow Brogan on twitter if you can take shameless self-promotion: @BroganMorris1
