Question: Why does Creasy almost kill himself in the beginning of the movie? How does Creasy die at the end of the movie?
Answer: Creasy was a contract assassin for the CIA. His downfall was his drinking because it affected his reaction time and so forth. He had a lot of bad memories he was trying to live with. He considered this bodyguard assignment to be a blow off assignment. This and his bad memories combined with his drinking problem, made him severely depressed. This is why he considered killing himself. At the end of the movie, you see Creasy being taken away in a car. His gunshot wound from the "Voice's" brother, along with his prior gunshot wounds that were never properly treated, had finally gotten the best of him. He was bleeding the whole last half of the movie because he never fully recovered from the gunshot wounds. So, to answer the question of why he died, he bled to death.

Answer: Lisa Gerrard - Man on fire End Theme or Harry Gregson-Williams - Creasy Dies.
Question: Did Creasy really shove C-4 up Fuentes' arse, or did he just attach it to the gas tank of the car?
Answer: Creasy explained to Fuentes that he used a suppository dispenser popular with drug mules to load the C-4 into Fuentes. And Fuentes had to have known what happened to his corrupt policia federale in the car and what happened at the rave, so he knew for certain that Creasy was authentic. Fuentes knew that his life was in jeopardy. As such, he tried to talk his way out - "Hey, take it easy", "I'm sorry about the girl", "I'm a professional". He tried to threaten his way out - "I'm the Presidente of La Hermidad." Fuentes was trying to buy time, to talk his way out of his impending enema. He needed enough time for Creasy to free him and for him to extract the C-4. And Creasy knew that, which is why he replied, "I wish you had more time."
