25 Most Memorable Movie Characters of 2012

There were quite a few movie villains this year, but few rivaled the pure ferocity of Bane (Tom Hardy) in The Dark Knight Risesthe final film of Christopher Nolan's excellent Batman trilogy.

Bane was truly a worthy foe who broke Batman's back, took Gotham by force and came within seconds of igniting a nuclear bomb over the entire city.

It's too bad, though, that such an excellent adversary had to be dispatched unceremoniously by a rifle - he deserved better.
