The 10 Best Bad Guy Deaths

If there’s one thing sadly missing from a lot of today’s blockbusters, it’s the epic bad guy death.

That hilariously over the top death which will make you laugh rather than be shocked.

Bad guys should never go to jail; they need to be impaled on combine harvesters, thrown off rooftops or blown up in an awesome fashion.

There are almost far too many awesome death scenes to list here but these are some personal faves.

So with out further ado, here are 10 of the most awesome bad guys deaths of all time.



10. Let off some steam – Commando

9. Face cut off – Equilibrium

8. Hung on a hook and dragged into a furnace – Cobra

7. Hans Gruber – Die Hard

Sadly it looks like Helen Keller recorded this from the TV, so sorry for the poor quality.

6. Motorbike flies into a Plane and explodes – The Losers

5. Death by Helicopter – The Last Boy Scout

4. See you at the Party, Richter – Total Recall

3. You’re Fired – True Lies
OK, so it’s in French, but you get the idea; it’s the only one I could find that would embed. This is the best scene of the movie.

2. Cyrus The Virus’ demise – Con Air
I can’t find a link to this clip but it involves being thrown from a fast moving truck, hitting electrical cables, then falling from a great height and getting his head crushed by a big crushy machine thing… no sequel for you.

1. You’re Discharged Sarge – Universal Soldier
Yet another clip I can’t seem to find anymore; why does YouTube suck so bad??!? Anyway, if you don’t know this scene then you’re on the wrong website. Dolph gets impaled on a combine harvester then minced into tiny pieces in a fabulously brutal death scene.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone.
