What is everyone's opinion of Alfred Molina's portrayal of Doctor Octopus? Not really going by the comics,but the movie itself. How would you rank him as one of the greatest villains in film history,or comic book movie history? As far as all time movie villains,I don't think he would rate up there with Darth Vader and Freddy Krueger,but I would definetly say top 10. I would rank him in the top 3 comic book movie baddies of all time for sure. He was truly menacing and quite scary,despite the fact that there was an intelligent and good hearted human being behind the monster. Give Raimi and co. credit for really taking the time to develop the character and make a great film in the process.
