"Surprised? I know. But here's the craziest part..... I'm the leader!".
~ Veck Simms revealing his true nature.

Veck Simms is one of the two main antagonists (along with James Kent) of the 2009 film Paul Blart: Mall Cop.

At first, he was Paul Blart's former security officer in-training partner, but it turns out he was actually a sarcastic and deceitful bank robber. His henchmen are Prancer, Blitzen, Vixen, Rudolph, Cupid, Donner, and Comet (who are named after reindeer). He is also Paul Blart's former friend-turned-archnemesis.

He was portrayed by Keir O'Donnell, who also played The Laugh in Amusement.

Personality

When he first appeared, Veck seemed like an regular, ordinary, and innocent person. He said to live a regular boring life and sound like a sad and sorry fello. Veck still showed to care for the people he first met, including Paul.

However, during the mall robbery, Veck's innocent and kind act was just an act as he was actually portrayed as a very sarcastic man who seems to have a hatred for cops. When asked for his demands, he says he "would love a happy meal!" he then demands silence. During this, he presses a power drill against a metal drawer, faking drilling into the vault. He is also very impatient and argumentative, screaming and barking orders at his henchman when Blart begins to make a credible threat to Veck's plan. Veck also blurts out that he has overspent on Amazon.com and that the situation is "UNACCEPTABLE!!".

He also appears to have vast knowledge of computers and computer hacking as he is seen hacking into several computers in the bank (possibly activating the credit card machines), Blart mentions that he is "good with computers", he has a binary code armband tattoo (which can be see on his left arm when he changes jackets), and at one point he suddenly has access to Blart's online dating profile, (which he presumably hacked into).

Biography

Veck's plot involved stealthily recording credit card codes from the computers of all 223 stores in the mall on Black Friday and then transferring them to offshore accounts. This is evidenced by the fact that he planned to fly to the Cayman islands, where off shore accounts are typically installed.

After Veck's henchmen cleared everybody out of the mall they took several hostages including Amy, several of Blart's other friends, and eventually his daughter who inadvertently walked into Veck's trap. After Blart defeats all of Veck's henchmen, he attempts to rescue the hostages and try to escape into an air vent but Veck, having been delayed attempting to locate Blart, enters the room and Blart is captured. He then demands to have the credit card codes, which Blart had entered into a borrowed cell phone.

Veck then escapes with the codes, taking Amy and Blart's daughter with him. Oddly, he is seen unarmed while driving his getaway van. Blart and SWAT leader, James Kent then go in pursuit and Veck leads them to an airfield. Veck then attempts to escape in a Cessna Citation Sovereign jet along with Amy and Maya, but Blart comes face-to-face with him in a brief fight. Blart overpowers, defeats Veck and arrests him. However, even then, Veck had an ace up his sleeve, it is then revealed that James Kent had been working with Veck the entire time and pulls his Beretta 92FS on Blart.

Kent then threatens to kill the three of them butfirst demands the phone. Refusing to hand it over, Blast smashes it on the tarmac instead. Kent counters this by telling Blart that he can simply use the codes written on the gang member's arms. However, at that moment, Sgt. Howard shoots the gun out of Kent's hand. Veck and Kent were arrested for good. His henchmen are arrested by the SWAT team prior to this.

Trivia

  • Veck's true nature is foreshadowed when Paul is pummeled by a woman in the Victoria's Secret store. When Paul yells at Veck to lend him a hand, Veck just stands there and does absolutely nothing.
  • Veck is seen primarily using a Glock 17 9mm pistol. At one point Veck empties it into what he thinks is Blart but it is actually a decoy, one of his henchman uses a stun baton against Blart during a chase, and during the takeover his henchman also set up flash-bang grenades to ward off the police. It is interesting to note that these are police weapons and may be hinting at Kent's involvement in the plot.
