Film Deaths[]

  • Saving Private Ryan (1998) [Private Adrian Caparzo]: Shot in the chest by a German sniper as he tries to rescue a little girl from a bombed-out building; he dies shortly after the end of the firefight. (Note the continuity error: his character can be seen with the squad in a scene after this event).
  • The Iron Giant (1999; animated) [Iron Giant]: Sacrifices himself by using his body to destroy a nuclear missile that was haphazardly launched by Kent Mansley (Christopher McDonald). Vin later is revived by his own self-repairing ability.
  • xXx: State of the Union (2005) [NSA Agent Xander Cage]: Vin does not actually appear in this movie; Scott Speedman reveals that Vin's character from the original 2002 xXx was killed in action between the two films. (The 2017 sequel xXx: Return of Xander Cage reveals that Vin in fact faked his own death, but they did intend this mention to be an actual death).
  • Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) [Groot]: Blown up in an explosion after sacrificing himself to shield his friends from the crash impact of an enemy ship. His remains are later used to create a new version of "Groot" (played by Sean Gunn) who survives the film.
  • Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk (2016) [Sergeant Virgil Jeremiah "Shroom" Breem]: Shot by an Iraqi soldier during a battle; he dies shortly afterwards from blood loss while talking to Joe Alwyn.
  • Avengers: Infinity War (2018) [Groot]: Voicing a sentient alien tree (performed by Terry Notary), Vin is disintegrated from existence by Josh Brolin’s Infinity powers as Bradley Cooper looks on helplessly. He is later resurrected when Mark Ruffalo uses the Infinity Stones to bring all the people disintegrated out of existence back to life in Avengers: Endgame.
  • Bloodshot (2020) [Ray Garrison]: Shot in the head by Toby Kebbell. He is later resurrected through nanotechnology by Guy Pearce and his company.
