Favorite kill scenes?

I was watching Timecop and while most of the film is ok, but pretty forgettable, I always loved how Ron Silver dies. Itís a great kill scene that I basically look forward to that one particular scene bc it was inventive and different.

  • When John Wick rears back and throws an axe into a guy's head from across the room in John Wick 3.
  • When Clooney gets out of his car after the big car chase in The Peacemaker, walks over and just shoots the people in the car who were chasing him. I've said many times on this forum that's one of my favorite scenes ever - I don't know why it doesn't happen more often in movies.
  • The "pencil trick" in The Dark Knight.
  • When Schwarzenegger kicks the AK up from the ground, catches it, flips it and shoots a dude in one motion in True Lies.

Gene Simmons in Wanted: Dead of Alive. "Fuck the bonus."

The German mechanic who gets pureed by a propeller in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

The guard who gets crushed under stone grinding wheel in Temple of Doom. (Same actor as the above, I believe!)

Really, the Indiana Jones films are full of gnarly death scenes. It's kind of hard to pick.

Liquid Nitrogen face smash in Jason X is the first that comes to mind. Laughed so hard when I saw that for the first time.

Edit: Another from Jason X. Sleeping bags and a tree.

That movie is filled with hilarious kills.

Gene Simmons demise at the end of Runaway. His death by those robot spiders always creeps me out.

I've finally amassed all 5 Death Wish movies on disc. About to go on a binge I think.

A little OT, but it's always bugged me how the pilot didn't hear the real mechanic YELLING at Indy aboard the plane. Then the pilot completely fails to hear both the wrench getting chopped by the propeller as well as the mechanic slamming face-first into the plane. But when the big soldier calmly says, "Hey", that sure got his attention!

Haven't seen that movie in nearly 40 years and it's practically the only thing I still remember!

There is one, exactly one, reason to ever watch Chopping Mall. And it's this:
