  • Dracula 2000 (2000) [Judas Iscariot a.k.a. Dracula]: Burned to death by sunlight while hanging from a cross after being tangled in the electrical cables on the roof of the church.
  • Reign of Fire (2002) [Creedy]: Burned to death by the dragon's breath after he traps it on a stairwell, to help Christian Bale seal the doors to protect the civilians.
  • Shooters (2002) [Jackie Junior]: Shot twice in the chest by Louis Dempsey, after Gerard shoots Andrew Howard.
  • Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life (2003) [Terry Sheridan]: Shot in the chest by Ciaran Hinds, and dies shortly afterwards while talking to Angelina Jolie.

  • 300 (2006) [King Leonidas]: Shot to death with a barrage of arrows in a battle with the Persian army. The scene goes to black as the arrows descend; his body is shown lying on the battlefield afterwards (his death is briefly shown in 300: Rise of an Empire, while his body is later seen as Rodrigo Santoro uses a battle axe to decapitate his body to claim his head as a trophy).
  • P.S. I Love You (2007) [Gerry]: Dies (off-screen) of a brain tumor.
  • Law Abiding Citizen (2009) [Clyde Shelton]: Killed in an explosion after Jamie Foxx plants Gerard's own bomb under the bed in Gerard's cell (with Jamie handcuffing the briefcase, so Gerard can't defuse it).
  • Watchmen: Tales from the Black Freighter (2009; animated) [The Mariner]: Possibly killed (off-screen) by the Black Freighter crew; the film ends with the crewmen surrounding Gerard as the Freighter captain pulls out his sword, so his fate is implied but not confirmed.
  • Movie 43 (2013) [Leprechaun #1/Leprechaun #2]: Playing two Leprechaun characters (through CGI head grafting), both are shot to death by Johnny Knoxville as he's trying to save Seann William Scott. (Played for comic effect)
  • How To Train Your Dragon 2 (2014; animated) [Stoick the Vast]: Shot with a plasma blast by Toothless the Dragon (under the mind control of Drago Bludvist, voiced by Djimon Hounsou) as he pushes his son Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel) out of the way of the blast; his body is seen again as it is cast out to sea for a Viking funeral (with Hiccup, Valka (Cate Blanchett), Astrid (America Ferrera)) and the others then set it on fire with burning arrows).
  • Gods Of Egypt (2016) [Set]: Stabbed to death with a golden spear by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, causing his body to explode. (Mythologically inaccurate: Set was killed and dismembered by Horus and his body parts were thrown into the Nile. He was later revived to serve as the ferryman of Ra's barque.)
  • The Vanishing (Keepers) (2018) [James]: Drowned by Peter Mullan at his own request.
