|~ Hinx's last word before he is ripped out of the train after a fight with Bond|
Mr. Hinx is a high-ranking member of SPECTRE who acts as an assassin for said organization, obtaining the position after the death of Marco Sciarra, and a major antagonist in the 2015 James Bond film SPECTRE.
He was portrayed by the former professional wrestler, Dave Bautista.
Mr. Hinx is the extremely hulking right-hand man of Franz who has a beard and buzzcut hair. His signature weapon is a double barreled Arsenal Firearms AF2011 Dueller Prismatic which is strong enough to rip the hull of Bonds plane. When Bond infiltrates the SPECTRE meeting in Rome and flees after being spotted, Hinx chases him through the streets of Rome in his Jaguar C-X75. He is immensely strong and also tremendously durable, capable of smashing through walls and enduring huge amounts of physical pain completely effortlessly. He is also very capable in a fight, nearly killing Bond in Africa.
Mr. Hinx was an assassin working for SPECTRE during the film. He is first introduced during the SPECTRE meeting in Rome, and displays his exceptional brutality and skill in combat by crushing his predecessor's eyes then breaking his neck with his bare hands. When Franz Oberhauser exposes James Bond eavesdropping on the meeting, Hinx chases after Bond in a Jaguar C-X75 as the latter tries to escape in his Aston Martin DB10.
Hinx chases the spy through the streets of Rome in an exciting car chase, where Bond tries to use all of his weaponry built into his car to fight off the assassin (easier said than done, as most of said weapons lack ammunition). Hinx corners Bond's car near a river, where Bond incinerates the bonnet of his pursuer's car to slow him down. At the end of the chase, Bond drives his car into the Tiber River, faking his death. Hinx is forced to stop, having lost the chase, but notices Bond escaped via an ejector-seat.
Hinx hunts Bond throughout the film, narrowly missing the spy when he reaches Mr. White's house in Austria. He is then deployed to arrest Madeleine Swann (Mr. White's daughter), provoking Bond to chase after him in a plane. An intense chase breaks out between three jeeps - Hinx and Swann in one of them - that splits through the Austrian mountains and destroys a myriad of buildings in the process. Bond eventually catches up with Hinx, and attempts to collide with him. Hinx goes off course and crashes into a nearby house, where he apparently dies. However, he is revealed to be truly unconscious, despite immense critical injury sustained in the crash - him and Dr. Swann are the only survivors out of the jeep occupants.
Hinx then appears for a third time on Bond's train journey through Africa where he ambushes Bond and Swann in the middle of a meal. He throws Bond through several carriages and rooms, but Bond fights back and a brutal fist fight breaks out. Bond tries to defeat Hinx by attacking him with a knife, a tray, a crate and a wine bottle but all of them are entirely ineffective. Eventually Hinx's sheer strength overpowers Bond and Hinx is about to throw him out of the driving train. Bond is saved by Swann who shoots Hinx in the shoulder, causing him to dive for cover. When Swann's gun is empty, Hinx attacks her and tries to strangle her but Bond attacks again, attaching a chain between Hinx and a series of barrels, before pushing the barrels off the train. One by one, the crates fall off, slowly overpowering Hinx as he falls off with the latter after muttering "Shit" - his only spoken line in the film, presumably killing him.
- Mr. Hinx bears various similarities to previous Bond henchmen Oddjob and Jaws:
- They all possess great physical strength, durability, and determination.
- They serve as the primary henchman for the main villains (Auric Goldfinger for Oddjob, Karl Stromberg and Hugo Drax for Jaws, and Franz Oberhauser for Hinx).
- They possess a gimmick for killing people (Oddjob using his steel-rimmed hat as a deadly projectile, Jaws biting people on the neck with his metal teeth, and Hinx gouging his victim's eyes out before breaking their neck).
- They also barely say any words at all (Oddjob only speaking Chinese to few of Goldfinger's Chinese henchmen, Jaws saying "Well, here's to us,", and Mr. Hinx muttering "Shit" before his death).
- As seen on the casting sheets, and according to Sam Mendes and Dave Bautista, the character was indeed meant to invoke Oddjob and Jaws.
- It's rumored that Dave Bautista will return in the next Bond film which presumably will be titled Shatterhand, therefore, Mr. Hinx may have survived his last encounter with Bond.
