I'm gonna choke my million bucks outta you! You're gonna die!
~ Frye's last words to Stanley Goodspeed.

Captain Frye is the main antagonist in the 1996 Michael Bay action film The Rock. He is one of General Hummel's soldiers who went rogue in order to get $100 million from the U.S. government by launching VX poisonous gas rockets on San Francisco due to Hummel's refusal to achieve this, provoking him into eliminating his commander.

He was portrayed by Gregory Sporleder.


Military Career and Becoming Greedy

When Hummel arrived together with the team, they took over the entire island and he became greedy because their "mission" was to destroy the entire city of San Francisco, but if the US government gives them one hundred million in cash, the destruction will not be happening.

Betrayal and Killing Gen. Hummel

The operation of Alcatraz is his first mission with Hummel along with Captain Darrow. His psychopathic tendencies are first seen when he is massacring an entire SEAL team sent to recapture Alcatraz from Hummel's gang (with Frye smiling gruesomely the whole time), despite Hummel's desperate order for them to stop. (It's possible that a deleted scene Involving him, Darrow and Sergeant Crisp might have revealed a plan to kill Hummel as soon as the cash arrived, but that's probably not what the film's director, Michael Bay, wanted.)

Final Confrontation with Goodspeed and Death

When one of the VX missiles flies off course, he is very mad with Hummel, as the general did not have it in him to harm innocent civilians. Instead of taking four hostages then evacuating, he and Darrow decide to go ahead with the VX launch anyway, killing Hummel in the process. Later, with Darrow not reporting back (because he was killed By Goodspeed), Frye - unaware that the last missile had been rendered harmless and disposed of, or simply unconcerned - takes matters into his own hands to kill Stanley Goodspeed. A confrontation ensures between the two in which Frye tries to suffocate the doctor, but Goodspeed still has a trick up his sleeve and shoves a VX gas marble into Frye's mouth, making him bite down by uppercutting him. This causes Frye to endure a very painful death. while Stanley injects himself with the antidote.
