The hero’s life isn’t always a pretty one. You wake up in the morning and have to spend every second being a badass. Then you go to sleep but you still have to be a badass so you can wake up the next day and – guess what – be a badass again.
And the worst part is, you don’t even always win at the end. Sometimes a hero has to make the ultimate sacrifice. Why? Because life isn’t always fun, that’s why.
Let’s take a look at some of the best movies ever made where the hero gets killed by the villain.
The Matrix Revolutions
Yup, I still consider this a good trilogy. Sure, CGI has evolved a lot since then and nobody’s impressed by “bullet time” anymore, but Agent Smith kills/absorbs Neo so it gets a spot on this list.
