10 Movie Characters Who Got Undeservedly Brutal Deaths

Why It Was Undeserved

Many viewers observed that the death of Zara (Katie McGrath), Claire's (Bryce Dallas Howard) assistant at Jurassic World, felt excessively sadistic and overly lingered upon, given that she hadn't done anything to antagonise the audience or "earn" such a prolonged demise.

You see, poor Zara isn't merely munched on, she's also toyed with and almost drowned by two Pteranodons before the Mosasaurus emerges out of the water and bites down on her. All this in a supposedly "family friendly" blockbuster.

According to director Colin Trevorrow, Zara originally appeared in a few more scenes which fleshed out her character as an obnoxious "Bridezilla", as would seemingly make her death more palatable, and maybe even "deserved", to general audiences.

But in the final cut of the movie, she seems like a perfectly normal, agreeable woman who gets brutally killed all because her boss was too lazy to look after her nephews.

The issue isn't that Zara died, but the tortuously long nature of her death scene, focused on her suffering as would typically be reserved for a genuinely antagonistic character.
