A lot of people tend to meet pretty gruesome deaths in movies and it got me thinking, what's the greatest death sequence anyone has seen in a movie?

I really like the climax of Mad Max 2 with the head on collision between the big Mack truck driven by Max, with the barbarian Wez clinging to the bonnet, and the vehicle driven at high speed by the warlord Humongous. One word - SPLAT!!!
Absoluteley spectacular stuntwork (well before CG started spoiling things).
Totally ripped off in Neil Marshall's Doomsday by the way...

The bad guy who falls off the top of the monument in 'North By Northwest'. Classic.

Death by toxic waste/hit by car in Robocop wins hands down!

Liked in TimeCop where VanDamme booted Ron Silver's Past character into his Present and they both melted ala the T1000 in T2!

The villain in 'Saboteur'. A fall from the Statue of Liberty as his sleeve gradually comes out of his coat.

The guy who met his maker in a grain filled silo in 'Witness' (Harrison Ford/Kelly McGilis) is
a pretty good last gasp !

The girl whose safety belt buckle slowly fails as she is being winched from mountain peak to helicopter by Sly Stallone in 'Cliffhanger' is pretty nasty as she can see only too well what fate awaits her !!

My favourite death has to Belle Rogan's chracter in The original Posidon Adventure she dies after saving the main hero from being crushed underwater and it is so sad.

What are you all taliking about, the best death has to be James Caan as Sonny in the Godfather as he gets ripped to pieces by gunfire at the toll booth, classic.

Jason Staham in "CRANK".
Falling down from the heli... calling his girlfriend before smashing on the street.


Mel Gibson in "BRAVEHEART".
Not a special kind of dead but a breath-taking moment in this epic movie.

The Death of Darth Maul in Star Wars episode one getting cut into then falling down that massive hole couldn't have been fun.

Greatest death well Spock in Wrath of Khan to save others in selfless logical yet emotional sacrafice

but the daddy of blood and gore has to be Mr Kinney from ROBOCOP board room, claret everywhere

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, John Wayne in the Cowboys and Shootist.

man oh man- forgot about quint from Jaws and theres a real bone cruncher!

Pacino in Scarface, Caan in the Godfather and the emotional and wasteful deaths of Mark lee in Gallipoli & Caviezel in the Thin Red Line take some beating. Then again, the greatest could be the bloke bouncing off the propeller in the film Titanic.)))
