YMMV / The Great Silence

  • Complete Monster: Loco is a psychopathic Bounty Hunter who spends the film hunting down a group of Mormons, with every intention of murdering them. When he practically takes a town hostage, Loco murders the sheriff to prevent his interference and when faced against the hero, Silence, Loco has an ambush set to cripple Silence before gunning him down and then shooting his love interest dead. He and his men proceed to murder every one of the Mormons, with Loco smugly adding they'll collect the bounties nice and legally. His actions, in the end narration, are noted to have absolutely horrified society and precipitated the end of Bounty Hunting.
  • Lawful Evil: Loco uses the legal bounty hunter profession to cover his evil acts; his boast is always that his acts have been "all according to the law." This is a form of Pragmatic Villainy too, as it helps him to get away with them. Not that it stops him from killing the sheriff, of course.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: People of all races and classes just need to get along, dammit!
