That's why it's so often the villain that everyone raves about being amazing. Like Bardem in Skyfall for example.
Both Craig and Dame Judi received praise for their performances too. And neither were loud or eccentric.

You know, thinking back on it, it was a amazing that in a film populated by Gene Hackman and Marlon Brando, this inexperienced upstart in Chris Reeve was able to give a genre defining performance. It's really a miracle.

Alan Moore on comics:

They've lost a lot of their original innocence, and they can't get that back. And, they're stuck, it seems, in this kind of depressive ghetto of grimness and psychosis. I'm not too proud of being the author of that regrettable trend.
