I voted Belloq because he's a great villain with layers and a considerable amount of sympathy (mainly stemming from his protective attitude towards Marion)...also, there's the whole being-Indy's-reflection thing, which no other villain has really managed. I would have loved to see them match wits again in another installment.
Also, I have a crush on him
If there was a second choice, I'd have picked Elsa, for many of the same reasons - not that I have a crush on her per se, but she was also a villain who wasn't just pure evil but had enough good in her to make me feel sad when she died. They always kill the best bad guys/girls off
I say the Cairo Swordsman. Here comes this guy showing Indy his awesome sword skills as if saying "hey check this out, I'm really good with a sword, I'd be really good in helping you get your girlfriend back from those thugs" and Indy shoots the guy!!!
He was a too good counterpart to Indy to die so soon in the franchise. I think he would have been above Marion, Henry, Sallah or Abner as a shocking return in Indy 4, if that could have been possible.
I agree with this. That would've been fantastic! Not only would Indy have to defeat both Belloq and Irina, Belloq and Irina would be at odds with each other!
Nazis vs. Soviets vs. American adventurists? What more could you want?
I chose Colonel Deitrich!... Guess why!
But really I think he deserved a little more than what he got. That's why I love the original mine cart chase in Raiders so much, 'cause he got an action sequence. It might have alsom been a nice Idea to bring him back in the next on, to avenge his cause, even though ToD was a prequel (just a thought). I felt his death was over Shadowed by Belloq and Toat's
I didn't chose Belloq or Toat or Vogel ect. because there death were way to badass!! Plus the main villain must die! (Its an unwritten rule)
I also voted for Elsa, but it was hard not to vote for Wu Han. I voted for Elsa because I felt for her in a weird twisted way. She was torn in between what was right and wrong. She knew helping Indy was right, but it was like she wanted to go with the powerful people (Donovon and the Nazis), which was wrong.
A new thought came into this....what if Elsa was scared to cross Donovan and the Nazis? Did they have her parents in a camp andforced her to help? We may never know the truth as to why Elsa kept switching sides from good to bad.
And a final thought, it would have taken Indy longer to find the location of the second marker if Elsa hadn't helped him find it!! And Wu Han had his moments in the video game "Emperor's Tomb"!
Seriously? Kazim and Wu Han are Indy's allies. They did killed off a lot of good villans too soon. Elsa is a little iffy but she did stop Donny. The 3 seats in the Ford Tri-Motor for orginally for Indy, Shorty, and Wu Han. I'm torn between Kazim and Wu Han for allies. Kazim tried to kill Indy but wasn't sure what he was soing. As for enemies Belloq would have been a good one to keep for another moive.
Think abaout it; she deserved it more than most of the villians. Why? Simple, she was warned "Don't cross the great seal!" And what did she do...
I mean Donovan (even though he was evil) was tricked by Elsa to drink from the wrong cup. He didn't question her judgment because, one, they were allied and two, she was an expert (In any sence of the word).
Belloq, Dietrich and Toat didn't know the ark would kill them for their evil (No villain thinks they are evil).
Mola Ram, actually deserved it; he knew what he was doing.
Irina had no idea that her request would back fire on her in a twisted ironic sence like that of a genie!
Belloq's my pick, because he is the closest thing the Indy franchise has ever had to a recurring villain/arch-nemesis. Star Wars has Darth Sidious, Lord of the Rings has Sauron, Harry Potter has Lord Voldemort, James Bond has Ernst Blofeld, G.I. Joe has Destro and Cobra Commander, etc. This is the only area in which I think the Indy movies failed: in giving Indy a consistent adversary.
Location: The distant figure that walks the treeline. The man standing in the field.
I picked the monkey.
Sure, it may have gave away Marion's position in the basket. But, when Indy thought Marion was dead and was drinking in the street; the little monkey showed remorse for what it had done. It tried to give Indy comfort.
Poor thing was just hungry when it died. All it wanted was some dates. It own damn owner ended up poisoning it.
Is Elsa really dead???? Didn’t she fall into a crevasse with the Holy Grail? Doesn’t that mean that she could conceivably still be alive if she was able to drink from the Grail while in the crevasse? Food for thought! Bring on Indy V and Elsa!!!
