Okay, here goes... this is my first go at a puzzle, so please correct me if I'm doing anything wrong at any time:

Having survived twice already, he was somewhat surprised by his death.

A thousand welcomes Jondahr. Hope you like it here.

Did he survive the same thing twice and then was subsequently killed by it?

Are the he and the his the same person? Did he suffer a violent death? Any crimes relevant?

I'll pop your name in the puzzle title. It's a common omission so don't worry about it

Was his death an accident? Did he suffer multiple injuries? Did he contribute to his own death through stupidity, foolhardiness, by trying to help someone?

Just to eliminate an obvious red herring ...James Bond relevant?

Did he suffer multiple injuries? Did he contribute to his own death through stupidity, foolhardiness, by trying to help someone? all of this is pretty irrelevant, also a slight FA

Just to eliminate an obvious red herring ...James Bond relevant? heh, no, he just provided an appropriate title

Band of Brothers relevant? ashamed to admit I haven't seen Band of Brothers (yet), so no, no direct relevance, but there might be some similarity that I'm not aware of

during the middle bit, was he watching another film or documentary which showed that he did survive? Indeed! And with that, I think we'll call the puzzle solved!


********SPOILER**********

True story (or so I've been told): He is a surviving soldier who had taken part in a special assignment during World War II. After the war, a movie is made about the assignment. He sees the movie, and it is fairly accurate. However, the movie is later remade by a larger, more commercial production company. They feel the story is lacking something, so they make some alterations to the script, including one of the main characters being shot and killed in the film's climax. The ex-soldier is invited to the premiere, but nobody's told him that he will be killed in this version. Very much alive as he is, he is, naturally, somewhat surprised to witness his own on-screen "death".


Guess it wasn't all that hard, but hey! First one! Thanks for playing!
