12 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!
