Saddest Movie Deaths


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) - Alien 3 Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) - Alien 3 Ellen Louise Ripley is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Alien film series played by American actress Sigourney Weaver.

Ellen Ripley is true heroine. I adore this character. The final scene was very emotional and sad - Alexandr

42 Neil Perry (Robert Sean Leonard) - Dead Poets Society

This is just so sad. Why'd he had to kill himself? But this movie is so beautiful though, the moral in it. I always loved Neil Perry in this movie and his ambition to be an actor.. Dead Poets Society always makes me cry so badly.

The scene where you hear the gunshot still haunts me to this day. Love this movie and how powerful it is.

43 Mickey Goldmill (Burgess Meredith) - Rocky III

This should have been in the top 5!

Really sad. It brought me to tears X (. Also, what about that boxer from "The Champ"? I mean come on! The poor guy and child! - LpsDisneyTmntFreak

44 Hachiko (Dog's Name Unknown) - Hachi: A Dog's Tale

I loved this movie, I almost broke down in tears when that poor dog waited for his dead owner, and wanted to cry in more when he died.

After hachi's death, when the camera climbs to the sky where Hachi finally met his human friend, I wanted to die crying

So sad, I wanted to cry when the owner died, my heart exploded when the dog waited for his owner, and I died when the dog died.

How is this not higher?! I was crying for 5 minutes straight?!?!

45 Kyle Reese (Michael Biehn) - The Terminator

He died honorably like a soilder - cadespencer


But the T-800's death in T2 was even sadder - cadespencer

46 Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) - Marvel's The Avengers Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) - Marvel's The Avengers

"Didn't you die? "
Phil: "I got better"

Fortunately after a trip to Tahiti, he was back with S.H.I.E.L.D.

47 Guido Orefice (Roberto Begnini) - Life Is Beautiful

One of the greatest war films ever made. True classic and Roberto made it look even better. - Alexandr

I love this movie with my entire heart! I cried for hours of sadness and then of happinness because I remembered that the boy found his mom.

48 Spock (Leonard Nimoy) - Star Trek II Wrath of Khan Spock (Leonard Nimoy) - Star Trek II Wrath of Khan

It gets me every time, that last bit when they're both slumped to the floor. And after they've spent most of the film reminding how long they've been friends.

This one's in the top five on my list :(

There is no greater death then one who sacrifices his life for others. The needs of the many outweigh...the needs of the few, or the one.

49 Dallas Winston (Matt Dillon) - The Outsiders

Nearly cried my eyes out when johnny died but when dally died within the same five minutes I balled my eyes out- RIP Dallas Winston and Johnny Cade

I really need to see this movie. This made me really sad when him & Johnny died in the book, and my friend told me this death made her bawl her eyes out when she saw the movie.

When Johnny died I was bawling and literally less than 5 minutes later, Dallas dies! I love the outsiders but I cry every time I see it!

Dally and Johnny were my favorites too... they were both cute to me but Johnny will always be my Bae!

50 Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) - Rocky IV

How is this so low it's in my top 10 Deaths, I mean a great character getting beaten up to death by a Russian boxer filled of steroids

Could not get over that. Still can't watch.

After watching all the Rockys and seeing how Apollo and Rocky grow as friends it's heart wrenching when you see him fall

51 Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort) - The Fault in Our Stars

This is by far the saddest movie death. I honestly have no idea why its not in the top 10. Although it doesn't show it, you still feel it. Its like getting hit by a brick that's too heavy to handle and you just break down in tears. His death is the only reason why I hate John Green. It builds up a relationship with you and the character and you get to know him all the way through then he's just gone... Definitely the best.

Definitely the saddest death ever I hate sad endings but the fault in our stars is still ky favourite book - pouria_mt

I just have no words to dexcribe his death I've read the book but I still cried off 2 pounds when I watched

52 Kili (Aiden Turner) - The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

Saw this in theaters on a class field trip. There were girls crying everywhere. Like the elf girl (I don't know how to spell her name)'s reaction made me sad

I cried after all the deaths in the hobbit when the songs come on at the end that's the worst part

I cried in a corner after seeing that... Now I wanna die...

What about fili - cadespencer

53 Fred Weasley (James Phelps) - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2

This was an emotionally painful scene, due to the face that Fred had always been a fun going loving guy and to see him go even with a joke in his throat and a laugh on his face was truly painful. He will be missed as long as time goes on.R.I.P. fred Weasley.

George, Ron, and Molly crying over his dead body in the movie, and Percy doing the same in the book, made this death even worse than it already was. They already killed Dumbledore, Dobby, and Cedric. Now they're taking Fred too. And we still have to get through the deaths of Harry, Lupin, Tonks, and Snape. - Blizzard

And the wave of feels rushes over us.

Should've been Percy

54 Murdoch (Ewan Stewart) - Titanic

He had too many people trying to annoy him. Cal Tommy Ryan That guy who tried to get in the lifeboat Bruce Ismay. In real life about 470 people out of around 707 people who survived the sinking of titanic were saved by this extraordinary man and I hear that he actually got swept away by a wave when the bridge and wheelhouse were filling up with water!

Murdochs was really sad the guy didn't deserve to die he only accidentally shot two people because one guy was trying to pay Murdoch to get on a lifeboat another guy was calling a Limey bastard and this other idiot was trying to make himself snug in a lifeboat no seriously I feel sad for the guy unlike Jack Dawson's death

Seriously he shot himself I feel sorry for him

His death was really depressing

55 Allison Kerry (Dina Meyer) - Saw III
56 Maximus Decimus Meridius (Russell Crowe) - Gladiator

Makes me cry every time. Such a powerful scene.

Wow 50 is that it

57 Dumbledore (Micheal Gambon) - Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

I was sad when I read the book and would be even sadder if Dumbledore was played by Richard Harris and not Gambon. He was rude. I was actually glad he died!

Please just watch it the music is so sad when they point there wands up after he's actually killed

58 Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) - The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) - The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Gwendolyne Maxine "Gwen" Stacy is a fictional character who appears in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, usually as a supporting character in those featuring Spider-Man.

If you didn't read the comics, then you wouldn't have expected it. This has broken my heart! Garfield and Stone had amazing chemistry and I know whoever will play Mary Jane in the next film will disappoint, and I will only wish that it were Gwen Stacey instead of Mary Jane. I'm worried that this death ruined the next two films. Honestly if Emma Stone hadn't played Gwen Stacy and played Mary Jane instead, then the series would be much better off. I see no way of recovering...

I saw it coming. But when it happened. I broke down to tears. Like what. I wish they could have kept her alive! DAMN I THINK I'm CRYING NOW! GREAT JOB GUYS!

I knew what was coming because of the comics but nevertheless it was really sad, the same feeling I had when Snape died.

Poor peter he loved her - cadespencer
