The end justifies the mean
Even the top five Bond villain deaths of all time could have been worse.
4. Alec Trevelyan—GoldenEye (1995)
The former Agent 006 thinks he has Bond right where he wants him but winds up falling a few stories into his massive satellite dish; then the steel walkway above Trevelyan collapses on him. Bond, on his way to banging the hottie, is minorly inconvenienced.
WHAT COULD BE WORSE? If it had been immediately followed by a “Remember when he fell?” video-stills montage set to the tune of Dave Matthews Band’s “Satellite.” Wrong for so many reasons.
