In the 1989 film, Wargrave is one of five characters
with an unchanged name. He also has a hilariously
cheesy fake death, dropping from a height for no
purpose other than to jump-scare Vera Claythorne.

You'd totally trust a guy holding a match, right?
I think the “guilt” of his victims is just the barest ethical fig leaf that the judge uses to cloak his own insane bloodlust, his own savage desire to kill.
He seems almost inhuman. Alone among the Indian Island guests, he never figuratively loses his cool or breaks into a sweat. Of course this in part is because he is Mr. Owen! But also it’s compelling depiction of a highly intelligent yet smug, arrogant, remorseless and merciless British judge.
