That's nothing uncommon. Mortal Kombat 2, Johnny Cage was killed off at the start of the movie.
In X Men 3, they killed off Cyclops in the begining too.
Those are both terrible films, but Cage dying was a part of the MK storyline in the games anyway, so at least it was faithful. Cyclops being killed is a pretty infamous move in the X-Men franchise, one of the worst.
