Film Deaths

  • Scarface (1983) [Antonio 'Tony' Montana]: Shot in the back with a shotgun by Geno Silva, after being shot repeatedly in the chest by an army of gangsters (he then falls off a balcony into a fountain). (Thanks to Robert, Michelle, Tal, Gary, Matt, Michael, Helena and Patrick)
  • Dick Tracy (1990) [Big Boy Caprice]: Pushed over a ledge into the gears of a bridge at the end by Warren Beatty. (Thanks to Tal, Gary, Matt and Michael)
  • Carlito's Way (1993) [Carlito Brigante]: Shot in the chest by John Leguizamo (he dies in hospital sometime later). (Thanks to Tal, Gary, Matt, Michael, Helena and Joe)
  • The Devil's Advocate (1997) [John Milton/Satan]: Explodes after Keanu Reeves rejects Al's Satanic power by shooting himself; he later reappears at the end of the movie, after everything is restored to the way it had been. (Since Al is playing Satan, an immortal entity, this doesn't really count as a "death" scene, but I'm listing it since it's been submitted to me.)
  • Insomnia (2002) [Detective Will Dormer]: Shot in the chest by Robin Williams; he dies in Hilary Swank's arms shortly afterwards, after managing to kill Robin in turn. (Apparently there is an alternate ending in which he survives, but all that has ever been released of this ending is a still image of Hilary helping him walk)
  • People I Know (2002) [Eli Wurman]: Stabbed in the side by a killer (Keith Siglinger) on the sidewalk; he bleeds to death some time after returning to his apartment, not knowing he's been wounded. (He thought the killer had only bumped into him.)
  • The Recruit (2003) [Walter Burke]: Shot to death by a SWAT team after he drew his gun at them.
  • Righteous Kill (2008) [Rooster]: Shot in the chest by Robert De Niro after Al fires several shots at Robert, committing "suicide by cop" by forcing Robert to return fire. He dies shortly afterwards as Robert kneels by his side.
  • The Humbling (The Last Act) (2014) [Simon Axler]: Commits suicide by stabbing himself in the chest at the end of a play, while the audience looks on in shock, as he hallucinates he's being stabbed by Dianne Wiest.
  • Misconduct (2016) [Charles Abrams]: Commits suicide by shooting himself under the chin while being held at gunpoint by police, after threatening to shoot Josh Duhamel.
  • Paterno (2018) [Joe Paterno]: Dies of cancer after the end of the film. His death is mentioned in the ending text.

TV Deaths

  • Angels in America (2003 mini-series) [Roy Cohn]: Dies of complications from AIDS.
