I was watching "Return to Lonesome Dove" this weekend. The character Calico Jack is one of the most evil, vile people ever. He looks downright sinister with his cigar in his mouth. Do other characters frequently smoke cigars to show they are evil?

I recall handlebar mustaches and how sinister they were. Occasionally, the character had a cigar hanging out the side of his mouth, too. So, yes, cigar smokers do help convey toughness, and even evil. I love evil characters.

Do you think that smoking cigars in a movie is to underline that a character is bad/evil? James Bond was smoking cigars, and he looked and acted like a true hero.

I think someone may consider cigars as something bad, harmful to someone's health, and, thus, even sinful. That is why bad characters are often smoking cigars, IMO.

They also have guns to look evil, but cigars do introduce some hints of mystery to a person IMO.

In movies decades ago, smoking cigarettes was common.  Very rarely will you see a "good guy" smoking cigarettes today.  But if the character is a bad guy, and even if they want to underscore that the character is some version of a socioeconomic scumbag, they'll have him or her smoke cigarettes.

I find that to be more common than using cigar smoking to indicate a bad guy.  Just look at Independence day where Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum focused on smoking a cigar to symbolize victory over the bad guy aliens.

Or Kurt Russell when he played Wyatt Earp in the movie Tombstone, where Wyatt says, "I wouldn't mind one of those cigars..."

Or Liam Neeson as Hannibal Smith in The A Team.  And of course Clint Eastwood in ALL his western moview.

Cigars mokers are considered to be more powerful, I think, and power is often associated with evil.

Mostly cigarettes, I guess, and I really don't understand why those directors try to show a evil person with a cigar in his mouth? Why not choose a pipe or a hookah, or something else?

Some of them smoke cigarettes, and some of them do not smoke at all. It's the things they do that make them evil. Smoking cigars was more usual for 70's-80's-90's movies.
