“Born to be Bad will give you hours of pleasure. It truly is a hive of scum and villainy.”

- Movie Waffler

“Born to be Bad is a must-have for action fans. ★★★★★”

- The Action Elite

“A great sense of peeling back the layers of what went into making critically-lauded and fan favourite cult classics alike so enduringly popular – it’s all about the bad guys.”

- Set The Tape

 “A who’s who of action cinema!”

- Bulletproof Media

“Action-movie maven Timon Singh gets up close and personal with a variety of fave screen villains, including erstwhile Video-Scope Character Kings William Atherton, Ronny Cox, and Martin Kove, in this info-packed tome. Singh's interviews cover several main categories--The Heavies, The Outsiders, The Final Boss---while also devoting sections to two villain-infested individual films, Die Hard and Superman II. Singh casts a wide thespian net here, spanning the spectrum from high-profile actors like David (Straw Dogs) Warner and Andrew (Dirty Harry) Robinson to such rarely heard voices as Matthias Hues and Al Leong, resulting in an invaluable work for genre buffs”.
