5 Movie Villains Whose Grand Plans Didn’t Make Any Sense


Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise GOD

While some villains’ plans are actually quite ingenious and would have been very hard to undo, if not for the last-minute intervention of our intrepid heroes, these are not the type of plans we are here to discuss. In this list, we will go over villains whose plans seem okay on the surface but are almost laughably bad once you stop to think about them for a minute.

5. All Scar Needed Was to Eat SimbaWe all know the story of The Lion King, how Scar tricked Mufasa to his death, while also making Simba self-exile from guilt, thinking it was his fault. And the truth is, Scar made an absolutely stupendous error. Once Mufasa was gone, all Scar had to do was eat Simba—the little lion cub would have posed no real threat at that size—and then kill and eat any other remaining lion cubs that were not his own offspring. After that, he could simply move in as the leader, and no one would question him

4. Ozymandias’ Plan in Watchmen Would Just Start a World War
Ozymandias– known to be the smartest and fastest man in the world. activates several superweapons that destroy major cities in every major country on Earth, and makes it look like it was Doctor Manhattan. The entire world somehow unites behind Doctor Manhattan as a common enemy, who believes it’s best to make them think he did it, so there will be peace and a permanent end to the cold war. None of this, of course, makes any sense at all. The fact is that Doctor Manhattan is still seen as an American hero, and even if he did destroy U.S. cities as well, this would almost certainly unite the countries against each other, not just make them angry at Doctor Manhattan. And nations would be especially angry at the USA for unleashing him.


3. Voldemort’s Plan for His Horcruxes Is Stupid
In book six of Harry Potter, we learn Voldemort has been splitting his soul when he kills people and hiding the pieces in objects so as to anchor himself to the mortal world. Explaining to Harry that these magic vessels must be destroyed so the dark wizard will no longer be anchored to the Earth, Dumbledore reassures him that Voldemort would have wanted to put them in objects that had sentimental value.
Apart from vanity, there is really no reason to put them in anything special; it just makes it easier for your enemies to identify. And to make matters worse, putting them somewhere you can get to them gives your enemies a way to get to them and is basically pointless.

2. The Aliens in ‘Signs’ Are So IncompetentWhen the movie ends, it is accepted that “they came for us, to harvest us,” which leaves us with some of the dumbest aliens imaginable. They are smart enough to have technology that can invade Earth but don’t have bio suits to protect them from water, the most prevalent thing on the planet—something they are deathly allergic to. And they are somehow trying to harvest us, despite us being mostly bags of squishy water with some crunchy bones within. Even after scouting first and setting up landing pads in our fields, they couldn’t even figure out how to protect themselves from water or a baseball bat… and couldn’t even open a simple wooden door.

1. Thanos’s Entire Plan Is Absurd
We all know of Thanos’ plan to snap half of all life out of existence using the Infinity Stones in order to solve what he believes is a serious resource problem throughout the galaxy. However, there are a few giant holes in his plan. For one, his plan also has him destroying half of plant and animal life, which doesn’t really fix the resource problem.
Major problems still remain, though, because most resource issues are actually infrastructure related, and for argument’s sake- even if they weren’t, killing a bunch of people doesn’t change the fact people will just breed again. Thanos destroys the stones so no one can undo what he did, but that means he cannot do it again once populations inevitably boom again, especially with all the abundant resources they now have. In the end, Thanos just wants to commit genocide, and no positives would be gained.
