Most Ridiculous Movie Death Scene Ever?

I honestly can not think of another movie that tops this particular death scene in regards to realism.

The scene in particular occurs in the James Bond flick, "Live and Let Die". The main villian, Kananga, decides to give Bond a rather painful death in a shark filled tank. But Bond gets the upper hand and inserts a gas filled pellet into Kananga's mouth.

The next scene is so bad that it is practically hysterial. We see Kananga quickly rise out of the water as a cheap inflated human balloon. He rises to the ceiling, and we see him explode. Only it looks and sounds exactly like a balloon being popped. lol No blood. Just a goofy Bond quip. It's almost like they ran out of money on the budget and came up with this cheapo prop at the last minute.


Can you think of a movie that tops this?

I'm assuming that you mean in a drama...as there have been some pretty crazy death scenes in movies (like Ricardo Montalban in THE NAKED GUN).

How about (Special Edition "only"!) Greedo?

That's exactly what I was thinking before seeing your post.

Might as well stop after watching that scene. The movie grinds to a complete halt, yet somehow another 2+ hours pass.

The fact that that scene took like 5 minutes to play out with all the backward glances made it that much funnier when he gets killed. I couldn't stop laughing in the theater.

Good job, Universal, for running the trailer to SW:TPM before and AFTER the film and tricking me into watching this abhorrent POS.

Final Destination can claim two of the most ridiculous... the car wash scene in 3(?) and the LASIK scene in 5.

In Volcano, the lava is enveloping a subway car. One guy is carrying the unconcious conductor, but can't jump over the lava, so he jumps into the lava and after throwing the conductor to safety, sloooowly dissolves into the lava without a peep. The only thing missing was, "I'M MELTING!"
