Film Deaths

  • Coriolanus (1979) [Coriolanus]: Stabbed to death by a group of assassins. (I haven't seen this version, but I'm roughly familiar with the Shakespeare play.)
  • That Was Then...This Is Now (1985) [Charlie Woods]: Shot in the head by pool hustlers. (Thanks to Fortza)
  • Street Smart (1987) [Leo Smalls Jr. a.k.a. Fast Black]: Shot in the chest by Erik King in the street, after Christopher Reeve manipulates Erik into thinking Morgan is out to kill him. (Thanks to Robert)
  • Glory (1989) [Sergeant Major John Rollins]: Possibly killed (off-screen) while charging the Confederate fort; the scene ends with Morgan and the other soldiers running towards a cannon, which then fires. Morgan's body is not shown among those being buried in a mass grave, but the implication of his death is pretty strong. (Thanks to Robert, The Grey Ghost, and Michael)
  • The Power of One (1992) [Geel Piet]: Fatally beaten by Clive Russell in the prison yard; he dies shortly afterwards while talking to Simon Fenton.
  • Nurse Betty (2000) [Charlie]: Shot to death (off-camera) in a shoot-out with police outside a hotel, after he says goodbye to Renee Zellweger and walks out. We only hear the shots from inside the room; his death is confirmed in a TV news report.
  • The Sum of All Fears (2002) [DCI William Cabot]: Dies of radiation poisoning (combined with injuries from a car crash) after a nuclear bomb that was instigated by Alan Bates' men detonates nearby; he dies while talking to Ben Affleck. (Thanks to Tal)
  • The Bucket List (2007) [Carter Chambers]: Dies during surgery to treat a brain tumor; his body is shown lying on the operating table afterwards. (Thanks to Eric, ND. Scott, Giro, Daniel, Richard, and Tommy)
  • Wanted (2008) [Sloan]: Shot in the back of the head with a sniper rifle by James McAvoy; after the bullet emerges from Morgan's head, the scene then rewinds to show the bullet's path going back to James. (Thanks to Daniel, ND, Steven, Manda, Andrew, and Tommy)
  • Oblivion (2013) [Malcolm Beech]: Killed in an explosion, along with one of the Tom Cruise clones, when they detonate a nuclear device to destroy the ship. (Thanks to Tommy, Dignan, and ND)
