** [[SerialKiller Scorpio]] from the first movie starts out sniping out his victims [[ForTheEvulz for fun]], which is already pretty nasty stuff, but it gets worse when he [[spoiler:kidnaps a 14-year-old girl, hides her in a well with limited oxygen supply and sends the police a message that if ransom money doesn't drop in time, the girl will die. Scorpio then proceeds to tell Harry Callahan that he changed his mind and is going to let the girl die anyway. When the girl is found, she's dead (and it's strongly implied Scorpio repeatedly raped her). Owing to a technicality because of the way Harry handled the arrest and interrogation, he would've been a KarmaHoudini had Harry not proceeded to go after his blood for the effort with full intent to spill it.]]

* In the ''Film/BladeTrilogy'': ** ''Film/{{Blade}}'': Frost crosses this when he [[spoiler:attacks Blade's mentor and father-figure Whistler and leaves him to die in agony. Whistler gets better though, but through becoming a vampire.]] ** ''Film/BladeTrinity'': Dracula crosses this when he [[spoiler:tortures and crucifies one of the Nightstalkers and leaves her mutilated body for the heroes to find. Notable not just for the wanton cruelty of it, but also the fact that the Nightstalker in question was ''blind'' and so obviously had no way from defending herself.]]

* In the aussie movie [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexandra%27s_Project Alexandra's Project]], the titular woman's revenge on her husband for years of sexual objectification and financial control is [[DisproportionateRetribution completely and utterly out of proportion]] with the mistreatment she received, especially since she apparently didn't complain much about it beforehand, and that her "project" is far too elaborate and long-running to be the work of an irrational mind.

*** If you're to believe [[AllThereInTheManual the novelization of the first film]], [[spoiler:Talia's plan to subject Gotham to nuclear holocaust in ''Rises'' goes beyond the pale even by her father's standards, as he would never have resorted to nuclear weapons (since he considers nukes to be powerful enough to make most of the Earth uninhabitable for most life forms, and since his goal was to ''save'' humanity from itself...); the fact that [[AndThatsTerrible she's doing it in her father's name]] only makes it worse]].

* ''Film/TheDevilsAdvocate'': John Milton is initially presented as this charming, charismatic if [[AmoralAttorney shady lawyer]].

* ''Film/LawAbidingCitizen'': Clarence Darby crosses this in the the '''first two minutes''' of the movie. ** Initially, we can sympathize with Clyde Shelton's desire to kill [[AssholeVictim Clarence Darby]] as vengeance for killing his wife and kids. But then there's how he goes about it: paralyzing his body, taking him to his lab, and chopping of his limbs with a chainsaw, making a video of this, and sending the video to Nick Rice.

** [[spoiler: Kylo Ren killed all of Luke Skywalker's Jedi students when he turned to the Dark Side of the Force. He crossed it even further when he killed Han Solo, his own father. He even worried, before killing Han, that he might not be completely irredeemable, and that the pull of the light side would eventually win him over, and so he apparently killed his father because he felt it would put him over the horizon.]]
