|Keanu Reeves (1964 - )|
|Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey (1991) [Ted 'Theodore' Logan]: Killed, along with Alex Winter, by their evil robot duplicates; they find themselves in the afterlife and eventually manage to come back to life after beating Death (William Sadler) at several different games. (Played for comic effect, obviously.) (Thanks to Zylom and Layne)
The Devil's Advocate (1997) [Kevin Lomax]: Commits suicide by shooting himself in the head in Al Pacino's office; this rejection of Satan's offer results in the undoing of all his previous interaction in Keanu's life, bringing him back to life at the exact point he was at the beginning of the movie.
The Matrix (1999) [Neo]: Shot repeatedly in the chest by Hugo Weaving in a hallway inside the Matrix; he is brought back to life by the power of Carrie-Anne Moss' love. (It's arguable as to whether this constitutes a "death scene" or a "brink-of-death scene," but since it's been suggested, I'll go ahead and list it.) (Thanks to Tal and Bobby)
The Watcher (2000) [David Allen Griffin]: Burned to death when a fire breaks out in the gasoline-soaked warehouse, after Keanu is shot by James Spader; Keanu's burned body is shown afterwards floating in the river when James checks to make sure he's dead. (Thanks to Tal and Gary)
The Matrix Revolutions (2003) [Neo]: Overloaded when the Matrix's consciousness channels an enormous amount of energy through him in order to destroy Hugo Weaving. (Thanks to RiffXRaff, Tal and Gary)
The Lake House (2006) [Alex Wyler]: Hit by a bus while crossing the street to meet Sandra Bullock; Sandra later manages to prevent his death by sending a message back through time to him. (Thanks to Eric, ND, and Mathew)
