Top Ten Movie Death Scenes


The Top Ten

1 Kane (John Hurt) - Alien (1979)

It was Gross!, but that is just why it was good - attarj

2 Boromir (Sean Bean) - Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)

Boromir=boss. Very sad scene.

Superb acting

3 Bill Murray (As Himself) - Zombieland (2009) Bill Murray (As Himself) - Zombieland (2009) William James "Bill" Murray is an American actor, comedian, and writer. He first gained exposure on Saturday Night Live, for which he earned his first Emmy Award and later went on to star in comedy films, including Meatballs, Caddyshack, Stripes, Tootsie, Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters II, Scrooged, What more.

Absolutely hilarious when Columbus realizes that he just killed Bill Murray!

He was only in it five minutes - attarj

4 Sgt. Elias (Willem Dafoe) - Platoon (1986)
5 Moe Greene (Alex Rocco) - The Godfather (1972)

Clean through the eye; best death scene in a movie and it was a part of the baptism sequence montage. After this scene, characters who are shot through the eye are referred to as having the "Moe Greene Special." Additionally, Moe Greene is my favorite character in the Godfather trilogy.

Moe Greene Special! Right in the eye!

6 Maj. Arnold Toht (Ronald Lacey) - Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
7 Tony Montana (Al Pacino) - Scarface (1983) Tony Montana (Al Pacino)  - Scarface (1983) Antonio Raimundo "Tony" Montana is a fictional character and the villain protagonist of the 1983 film Scarface.

I almost cried when he died, still the most brutal movie ending of all time - NjakDjak

What is the Hunger Games doing here?

I didn't See that coming - attarj

8 The Emperor (Ian McDiarmid) - Star War Return of the Jedi (1983
9 Mufasa (James Earl Jones) - The Lion King(1994)
10 Walt Kowalski (Clint Eastwood) - Gran Torino (2008)

Those Asian street gangs that killed Walt should all burn in hell.
