DHS- Boris, evil hacker in 007 GoldenEye (1995)

Boris

Boris Grishenko is the fourth main antagonist of the 1995 James Bond film GoldenEye and is played by actor Alan Cumming.

Character Backstory[]

Boris was a brilliantly talented Russian computer programmer and arrogant misogynist. He worked as a hacker computer technician at the Severnaya observatory within the GoldenEye control center in Severnaya, Siberia. The satellite center looked over the two weapons satellites, Petya and Mischa.

He also has a nervous habit of clicking spring loaded ballpoint pens, and twirling before resuming the clicking motion while concentrating on a task, and shouts "I am invincible!" whenever he succeeds. He callously treats the women he works with like sexual objects.

Character Summary[]

Boris disappeared when he was "going for a cigarette" and was never seen again. He had actually slipped away and flew off with General Arkady Ourumov and Xenia Onatopp, having allied himself with them and Alec Trevelyan to steal the GoldenEye satellite. He was moved to Cuba to help operate the satellite.

When Natalya Simonova, who's computer skills were actually above that of Boris', was captured there, she attacked him in a fit of rage for allying himself with the enemy, and during the scuffle, accidentally got hold of 007's pen grenade. Boris mishandling of it accidentally detonated the pen, destroying the controls. After the satellite antenna was destroyed, most other operatives had either escaped or been vanquished in the explosion.

Boris, however, had been unable to escape but survived the initial result. Delighted at himself for not perishing in the flames, he let his guard down, screaming, "Yes! I am invincible!" again. A vat of liquid nitrogen used for resources blew up above him, releasing liquid nitrogen onto him and freezing him which also resulted in his death.
