Film Deaths

  • War Requiem (1989) [German Soldier]: Stabbed in the stomach with a bayonet by Nathaniel Parker after the opposing soldiers stumble across each other. There is a subsequent scene of Nathaniel meeting a bandaged Sean, but due to the film's symbolic nature and the absence of dialogue, it's ambiguous whether Sean is still alive and meeting Nathaniel in a military hospital, or whether they're both dead and meeting in the afterlife.
  • The Field (1990) [Tadgh McCabe]: Falls to his death from a cliff while running away from a stampeding herd of cows. (Thanks to Frederica)
  • Lorna Doone (1990) [Carver Doone]: Drowns in a bog. (Thanks to Frederica)
  • Patriot Games (1992) [Sean Miller]: Accidentally impaled through the back when he falls onto an anchor during a fight with Harrison Ford on the deck of a burning speedboat; his body is later seen when the burning boat crashes and explodes.
  • Goldeneye (1995) [Alec Trevelyan]: Mortally injured when he falls a great distance when Pierce Brosnan drops him from an antenna cradle onto a satellite dish, then is crushed to death when the antenna cradle collapses on him.
  • Essex Boys (2000) [Jason Locke]: Shot in the head with a shotgun by Tom Wilkinson. (Thanks to Katy and ND)
  • Don't Say a Word (2001) [Patrick Koster]: Buried alive after Michael Douglas dislodges the supports to a freshly-dug grave that Sean had fallen into, causing the grave to collapse in on itself.
  • The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) [Boromir]: Shot three times with arrows by Lawrence Makoare during a battle with the orcs in the woods; he dies shortly afterwards while talking to Viggo Mortensen. His body is later seen on a boat going over a waterfall. (Note: Sean reprised the role in a flashback to his ‘death’ in The Return of the King, he as well had a memory/flashback scene in the extended edition of The Two Towers.)
  • Henry VIII (2003) [Robert Aske]: Starved by Ray Winstone's followers. It just shows Sean tied up to a gate shirtless. (Thanks to PortsGuy)

  • Ca$h (2010) [Pyke Kubic / Reese Kubic]: Playing a dual role as twin brothers, "Pyke" is shot in the head during a struggle for a gun between Sean, Chris Hemsworth, and Victoria Profeta in Sean's car. "Reese" survives the movie.
  • Death Race 2 (2010) [Markus Kane]: Shot in the chest by a Triad kid. He then falls into his swimming pool.
  • Age of Heroes (2011) [Jones]: Presumably dies (off-screen) after being cornered by soldiers during a battle. We only hear gunshots, implying that he either died or much more.
