Jürgen Prochnow (1941 -)

Film Deaths

  • Das Boot (The Boat) (1981) [The Captain]: Badly injured by shrapnel when British planes attack La Rochelle.
  • Beverly Hills Cop II (1987) [Maxwell Dent]: Shot to death (with a final shot to his face/head) by Eddie Murphy while Jurgen is trying to run Eddie over with his car, causing the car to crash through a wall then down a slope to then burst into flames.
  • The Seventh Sign (1988) [David Bannon]: Executed (off-screen) by crucifixion before the film begins; he appears as an angel throughout the film to oversee the breaking of the seven seals and returns to heaven (having spoken to Michael Biehn and Manny Jacobs) after Demi Moore sacrifices herself for her unborn son, thereby preventing the final sign from coming about, stopping armageddon.
  • Kill Cruise (Der Skipper; The Storm) (1990) [The Skipper]: Shot in the throat with a spear-gun by Elizabeth Hurley on the deck of the boat.
  • Hurricane Smith (1992) [Charlie Dowd]: Eaten alive by a pack of sharks after Carl Weathers knocks him into the sea.
  • Judge Dredd (1995) [Judge Griffin]: Arms ripped off by a giant robot that was following Armand Assante's instructions. We only see Jurgen's legs dangling as the robot does this.
  • DNA (1997) [Dr. Carl Wessinger]: Killed in an explosion/burned to death, along with Mark McCracken and most of his cohorts (after a mortally wounded Roger Aaron Brown triggers a bomb).
  • The Elite (2001) [Avi]: Presumably killed in an explosion/burned to death when his boat blows up from one of his own bombs as he tries unsucsessfully to kill Jason Lewis, by locking him in a room with said explosive (who manages to jump through a window overboard before detonation) following a struggle.
  • House of the Dead (2003) [Captain Victor Kirk]: Sacrifices himself by blowing himself with a stick of dynamite up as a group of zombies are surrounding him.
  • Primeval (Primeval Kill) (2007) [Jacob Krieg]: Commits suicide by blowing himself up with a grenade in an effort to kill the crocodile "Gustave" attacking him; the crocodile then devours his body anyway.
