Frank Butterman in Hot Fuzz

25 villains disguised as good guys 1

Directed by Edgar Wright, Hot Fuzz follows police officers Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) and Danny Butterman (Nick Frost) as they investigate a series of mysterious and gruesome deaths in the West Country village of Sanford. Danny’s father, Frank Butterman (Jim Broadbent), is Sanford’s police inspector, so it’s a huge shock for the main characters and the viewers as well when it’s revealed that Frank is actually the one who’s been killing people all along.

Frank was a good man who followed the law religiously. But after the tragic loss of his wife, he was driven to the point of insanity and secretly began the Neighborhood Watch Alliance to eradicate all those he deemed imperfect for Sanford to win the Village of the Year contest.
