Does his skin fall off? Get him off the bed, I don't want to replace the sheets.
~ John Carlyle shows his disregards to his heavily radiated employee, Max who is responsible for his death later on.
John Carlyle is the secondary antagonist in the 2013 sci-fi action film Elysium.
As the CEO of Armadyne, he makes a program to override Elysium's computer to give Jessica Delacourt the presidency in exchange for billions of dollars worth of defense contract for the next centuries. He also stores the program in his own brain, with the intention to transport to Elysium.
While he was going to Elysium, Max da Costa shoots his ship with a explosive bullet, making it crash. In the middle of a gunfight between Max/Criminals and the Droids, he gets shot in the chest, causing him to bleed out. As Max hacks his brain, he chastised Max for not having a single clue of what he was doing. As Kruger was too busy to fight Max's team, he was eventually left to bleed out and die from cardiac arrest.
Ironically, his death is contributed to his negligence of his own employees since if he chose to save Max, he would have prevented his death.
John Carlyle dies the same way he treats his employees, being left to die.
