Stephen Boyd in 'Ben Hur' hung on to give Heston a bit of stick with his last breath, great stuff.

Well folks, after all these suggestions and careful consideration, I find that I'm sticking with my original choice of the original King Kong being machine-gunned to death from the top of the Empire State Building. So d@mn sad...

I liked Starship Trooper where the people eaten inside the body would wreak final vengence before dying from being pierced by the big bug claws.

I'm gettin' on but I don't think I'm old enough to have personally known TIBERIVS Caesar.

Every time I watch the chariot race I know MESALLA is going to come unstuck but I I still consider that to be one of the great moments in cimema.

Judah's victory speaks so well to the "here today gone tomorrow" transitory nature of mortal sporting heroes and the fickle shallowness of the bestial proletariat in the stands. As PILATE { Frank THRING } said to him, "You are the people's one true god - for the moment".

PANEM ET CIRCENCES - I have often thought on the 'nothing new' nature of organised sport, its testosterone fuelled gladiators { read State of Origin football } and the primitive and tribal mob, including the women, that idolises them. Slightly more refeened but nonetheless similar we have the old chariot races in the Circvs then and the Melbourne Cup of today.

There's a statue of Wally LEWIS, one of our football 'legends' outside the 'arena' in Brisbane. I speculate that in a few centuries this statue will be dug out of the ruins and the discoverer will think it one of the local gods. He'll actually be correct in that assumption.

This 'hero' will eventually fade away and die, as have all his predecessors.

Most of the cast of the dreadful 'Red Dawn', where they all seem to manage a last speech whilst taking their final breath.

Mustafa in Austin Powers 2 (The Spy Who - well, y'know...).
The Hitcher remake "torn apart by being tied between a disconnected artic' tractor and the trailer" is quite gruesome, mainly because most of it is left to your imagination.
Dan Aykroyd's fake death in Spies Like Us, merely for the incongruous silliness of it.

A lot of people keep making a lot of noise about the death at the end of BRAVEHEART, but to me, the one at the beginning where his love interest has her throat slit is far more poignant and disturbing!

John Wayne in "The Shootist" partly because it was his last film, and James Cagney in "The Roaring Twenties" on the steps of the church.

The Raid redemption had several new ways in which to despatch guys to the next world, but for me it was the gas cylinder inside the fridge that stole the show!! epic!

Dont feel like reading 25 pages to see if its already in here but I watched Alien: Resurrection the other day for the first time in ages (dont usually bother with the last 2) and the guy near the end who goes mental just before the alien bursts through his chest and he grabs the bad guy and it goes through both of them.

Sorry I cant remember character names or anything, I was drinking at the time...

I am thoroughly impressed. Both worthy of the subject of this post. "He was a Big Shot once." Don't we all wish we were once too.
