The China Syndrome

The China Syndrome (1979)

Ending / spoiler

Jack Godell (Jack Lemmon) speaks with Kimberly Wells (Jane Fonda) on live television (from inside the control room) about the dangers of the Ventana nuclear power plant. A couple of SWAT team guys cut the signal. They enter the control room and shoot Jack. Ted Spindler (Wilford Brimley) tells the media that Jack was not crazy (and was right about the plant's hazards), that there will be an investigation and that the truth will be exposed.
