These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Complete Monster: Strucker is a staunch Nazi who seems to extend his racial prejudices to everyone who isn't a White Anglo-Saxon Protestant later in the film. He is ruthless in his goal for world domination, perhaps epitomized early in the film where he slaughters a temple-full of Tibetan monks, who refuse to defend themselves. He also has the informant who'd been helping him brutally executed and threatens his own granddaughter when she continues to fail him. He has no redeeming qualities and no goals beyond orchestrating a Holocaust Times Ten. This all might just be in order to make the thief protagonist look a bit more amiable.
