Rutger Hauer in Blade Runner.

Rutger Hauer (1944 - 2019)

"All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die."

Film Deaths:Edit

  • Arctic Blue (1993) [Ben Corbett]: Presumably dies (off-screen) from blood loss after being shot in the stomach by Kevin Cooney after killing John Cuthbert.
  • Surviving the Game (1994) [Thomas Burns]: Dies trying to shoot Ice-T; RH's hunting rifle, which has been jammed with cigarettes, backfires explosively. ("...Always check the barrel.")
  • Tactical Assault (1999) [Capt. John 'Doc' Holiday]: Drowned when his plane crashes into a river/ocean after being shot down by Robert Patrick at the end of a dog fight.
  • Flying Virus (Killer Buzz) (2001) [Ezekial]: Eaten by an alligator.
  • Sin City (2005) [Cardinal Roark]: Killed (exact method unclear) by Mickey Rourke in Rutger's bedroom; we only see a close-up of Mickey's face with blood splattering on it. (It appears that Mickey is either crushing Rutger's head or tearing it off with his bare hands.)
  • Mentor (2006) [Sanford Pollard]: Died (off-screen) of a cancer, his body is represented in the photos of his funeral.
  • The Rite (2011) [Istvan Kovak]: Dies (off-screen) of unknown causes, we only learn of his death when his son (Colin O'Donoghue) is informed after getting a call from his father from beyond the grave.
  • The Fifth Execution (2011) [Mr. Hunt: Heavily implied as being shot off-screen by Bo-Sung Kim after Bo fights Hauer's men and bursts into his office and the film fades to black.

Television Deaths:Edit

  • Blind Side (1993 TV Movie) [Jake Shell]: Electrocuted when Rebecca De Mornay throw an lamp after he falls into a hot tub at the end of a fight with Ron Silver. (Thanks to DeMan)
  • Amelia Earhart: The Final Flight (1994, TV movie) [Fred Noonan]: As Amelia Earhart's navigator he disappeared with her on her attempt to fly around the world. (I haven't seen this version but Noonan's fate is clear)
  • Fatherland (1994, TV Movie) [SS-Sturmbannfuhrer Xavier March]: Killed by SS/Gestapo assassins.
  • The Call of the Wild: Dog of the Yukon (1997, TV Movie) [John Thornton]: Shot repeatedly in the back and chest with arrows by Yeehat warriors. His body is later seen as the dog Buck stands over him towards the end of TV Movie.
  • Lexx: Eating Pattern (1997) [Bog]: Killed when an alien worm that was controlling him detaches from his brain along with all the other villagers.
  • Galavant (2015) [Kingsley]: Stabbed in the back by Mallory Jansen while Rutger is about to executed Vinnie Jones. (One of several over-the-top moments in this comedy series.)

Video Game DeathsEdit

  • Observer (2017) [Daniel Lazarski]: Body taken over by Brandon Fague while his consciousness is transferred to the body of Arkadiusz Jakubik. Rutger's body is beaten by Arkadiusz; it is uncertain if the former survives, but the latter is shot dead by police. (This is one of two endings of the game, in the other Rutger survives.)
