Death at 24fps: One Tough Bastard

The Movie:
One Tough Bastard (1995)
The Perp: John North (Brian Bosworth)
The Victim: Karl Savak (Bruce Payne)

If you wanna kill somebody - especially an important somebody like, say, your arch-nemesis - there’s no more dramatic way to do it than than push him off a building. Or a cliff. Or perhaps some iconic landmark. At least this is what the movies have taught us. According to the Movie Deaths Database, “Falling” is the number one death device of filmmakers - clocking in at an impressive 134 fatalities (and counting). But nobody milks the drama more than director Kurt Wimmer did right here.
