Mr. Hinx serves as a ruthless assassin for the terrorist group SPECTRE, appearing prominently in the 2015 Bond movie Spectre. His character is brought to life on-screen by the renowned American actor and ex-professional wrestler, Dave Bautista, and he is a formidable foe for James Bond.
Gifted with extraordinary strength and resilience, Mr. Hinx is a cunning and cruel executioner who holds a senior position within SPECTRE, and always proves his close association with Ernst Stavro Blofeld.
Mr Hinx boasts raw power that allows him to crash through solid barriers and withstand immense physical harm with apparent ease. His fighting prowess is demonstrated in his near-defeat of James Bond in Morocco. And his preferred weapon of choice is the dual-barreled AF2011A1 Dueller Prismatic, a firearm that discharges .45 caliber ammunition.
Mr. Hinx initially appears at the SPECTRE gathering at the Palazzo Cadenza in Rome. Following Guerra’s offer to assume Marco Sciarra’s mission to take down Mr. White, alias the Pale King, Moreau inquires if anyone wishes to contest Guerra’s assignment.
Without a word, Mr. Hinx makes his entrance into the meeting room and positions himself next to Guerra. When queried why he should replace Guerra, Hinx responds by violently slamming Guerra’s head onto the table, gouging out his eyes with his metallic thumbs, and snapping his neck, killing him on the spot.
With the seat now unoccupied, Mr Hinx calmly cleans his metallic thumbs with a handkerchief before seating himself. Soon after, Blofeld exposes James Bond’s undercover status at the meeting, but Bond escapes in his Aston Martin DB10.
Hinx gives chase in his Jaguar C-X75, but Bond manages to shake him off by using his car’s flame-throwing capability and ejects just in time before his car crashes into the Tiber River.
Mr. Hinx, under the instructions of Ernst Stavro Blofeld, finds Mr. White’s hideout in Altausee, Austria, only to discover that Mr. White has already taken his own life. Hinx finds White’s surveillance setup and uses the recorded footage of White’s meeting with James Bond to pinpoint the location of Dr. Madeleine Swann, White’s daughter.
Kidnapping Dr. Swann from Hoffler Klinik, Mr Hinx and his team are pursued by Bond in an aircraft. Despite extensive damage to Bond’s aircraft, Bond tries to ram into Hinx’s vehicle, causing it to veer off the road and crash into a nearby house, seemingly ending Hinx’s life. However, it’s later revealed that he was left unconscious after being ejected through the car’s windshield.
Later, in North Africa, Mr. Hinx ambushes James Bond and Madeleine Swann aboard a train. In the midst of their dinner, he attacks, knocking Swann unconscious before battling Bond. The fight spills through the train carriages, with Bond unsuccessfully attempting to overpower the formidable assassin.
Despite Bond’s efforts, Hinx overpowers him and prepares to throw him from the moving train. Swann intervenes, shooting Hinx in the shoulder, but her gun jams, and Hinx begins to strangle her.
Bond, in a timely rescue, locks Mr Hinx up with a long chain tied around his neck to a series of heavy barrels. As the barrels drop one by one, Hinx has just enough time to comprehend his impending doom before being violently pulled from the speeding train by the final barrel, resulting in his gruesome death.
