During the Cold War, Russian villains were all the rage -- and now, with the release of 'Child 44,' they are back on the big screen. Check out this list of some of the best baddies this side of the Iron Curtain.
Ivan Drago in 'Rocky IV' (1985)
When Russia's super fighter, Ivan Drago, kills Rocky Balboa's best friend, Apollo Creed, in the ring, Rocky must avenge his countryman. After a few training montages, of course.
Russian Olympic Hockey Team in 'Miracle' (2004)
During the height of the Cold War, the U.S. Olympic hockey team took on the undefeated Russians and brought home the gold. USA! USA! USA!
Rosa Klebb in 'From Russia with Love' (1963)
A run-in with this Commie, armed with a knife-dispensing shoe, left James Bond both "shaken" and "stirred."
Ivan Korshunov in 'Air Force One' (1997)
The last words Gary Oldman's Russian hijacker heard before exiting the titular aircraft? "Get off my plane!"
Alexei de Sadeski in 'Dr. Strangelove' (1964)
This hilarious Cold War classic will have you thinking nuclear war between the U.S. and Russia might actually be something to laugh about.
Colonel Podovsky in 'Rambo: First Blood Part II' (1985)
Colonel Podovsky is one mean Commie. If you don't think so, just watch when he tortures John Rambo!
Boris Vaslov in 'Ice Station Zebra' (1968)
If you ever find yourself working at a secluded place in the Arctic, and suspicious things begin to happen, beware of anyone who talks with a Russian accent and looks like Ernest Borgnine. Important safety tip.
Tom Farrell in 'No Way Out' (1987)
Kevin Costner plays Tom Farrell, an upstanding Naval Officer assigned the task of finding a Russian spy. Normally, this wouldn't be a problem, but... (spoiler alert).
Xenia Onatopp in 'GoldenEye' (1995)
This Russian assassin's weapon of choice? Her thighs. As in, using them to put quite a stranglehold on her targets -- one which 007 narrowly escaped.
