3. Bullseye – Daredevil
Colin Farrell’s work as the badass Bullseye in 2003’s Daredevil is not only one of the most painful portrayals the comic book genre has ever seen, it’s also one of the hardest to look at based on the crappy cosmetics featured on his forehead.
There are a large number of reasons why this character didn’t work, but it was mainly the visual style of Bullseye that crashed and burned for fans. First and foremost, the bullseye-shaped scar on his forehead simply looked completely out of place mixed in with his edgy goth-like costume. The entire Bullseye package literally seemed to take all the worst possible elements of the character and pieced them together. The cherry on top was the forehead scar. Thanks, guys.
2. Two-Face - Batman Forever
Look, I love Tommy Lee Jones just as much as the next guy, but there’s really no way he could have feasibly worked his way through the jaw-droppingly ridiculous Two-Face makeup used in 1995’s Batman Forever. With blockbuster duds such as Batman & Robin, the mid- to late-‘90s were most definitely a rough time for comic book flicks and the oddly colorful scars created for this box office smash left diehard fans of the series more perplexed than ever. Purple? Really? I have no real idea what the makers of this Batman sequel were thinking, but looking back on it now, I can only guess that Willy Wonka was part the production staff.
1. Kakihara - Ichi the Killer
Not only are the scars on the face of Ichi the Killer’s Kakihara the most badass cinema has ever seen, they’re also easily the most ridiculous.
Now I’m in no way talking s**t on the awesomeness that is Ichi the Killer, but leave it to Japanese director Takashi Miike to come up with a character as insane as and visually striking as Kakihara. This guy literally needs numerous piercings to keep his entire mouth and face from completely falling apart. Now that’s ridiculous, y’all. Quite ridic.
