Shaw's attack on CIA was fantastic, as was Magneto's attack on Shaw's yacht. In terms of emotion, Mystique stole the show - Lawrence did a brilliant job.

The Holocaust opening with young Erik and Shaw speaking German.

Erik killing the Nazis in South America.

Erik trying to kill Shaw on his yacht, and his first meeting with Charles.

Wolverine's cameo.

The training montage.

Hank becoming Beast.

Erik turning the satellite dish.

Erik raising the submarine.

The entire climax (Shaw's death, Erik throwing the missiles back at the humans, Charles getting crippled).

Charles using his powers to flirt with coeds.

Erik Lensherr: Nazi Hunter.

Azazel's attack on the CIA. One of the scariest comic-to-film scenes to date.

Charles and Erik discussing humans and taking a favourable and unfavourable positions on them respectively. Interesting how Charles is white and Erik is black to reflect this, given the western view on each color. No idea if this is the same in X-MEN 1.

So many moments are great but Magneto raising the sub-marine is a superb moment in the film, him realising how much power he has in that moment with the help of Charles is just brilliant, and its what begins his power trip for the rest of the movie.

Charles finding a happy memory in Eric that gives him the serenity to move the dish. It made me weepy. Yeah, I got that teary-eyed feeling when Wolverine went berzerker during the mansion raid in X2, but that was geek nostalgia for the most part. The scene with the dish is purely character driven, and it's so tightly written, so assuredly directed, and so effectively acted that it blows that scene in X2 out of the water. You don't have to be an X-Men fan to be moved by it. It's genre-transcendent, and simply a great piece of filmmaking.

^Thats true, that scene in any movie would have been moving, it was a great way of reminding us what in Erik's life has shaped just before his turn to the 'darkside' so to speak, and it also gives us a compelling reason why he kills Shaw.

Agree wholeheartedly. It might even be the best scene in a superhero movie to date.

^I'd finding it hard to disagree, the more I watch that scene the more emotional and touching it gets, I especially love Xavier's monologue after he moves the dish, what he says is so true and brilliant, yet at the same time so tragic because its the catalyst for Magneto later thinking he is above humans and even other mutants.

I always think of that scene when Magneto later takes on his God complex after leaving the crashed sub-marine, that scene is amazing, and on repeat viewing it actually makes the satelite scene all the more emotional. Amazing stuff.

^ It's tragically ironic that, in a way, Charles was partly responsible for Erik's "god complex" which would lead to his downfall into the dark side.
I love the satellite scene too. And the music is absolutely brilliant, to add to everything already mentioned.

^Agreed the music was superb. And yeah, its Charles who gives him the belief that he is a superior being, but what makes it more tragic is that Charles told him that stuff so that Erik would be a better man, not think himself better than man. Its a superb piece of story-telling and again, like the beach scene, shows the major differences in the characters.

I feel so sorry for Charles, because he really believed that Erik would finally achieve that point between rage and serenity and find some peace among his newfound family, but still keeping that mesure of anger that was so significant for him, and so understandable, because it was part of survival too.

But Charles would never expect Erik to colapse in full loco-mode after he killed Shaw. The shock on his face when he saw that Erik was completely lost in hatred is really heartbreaking.

I think Charles believed he could talk Erik into not killing Shaw, right up until the last moment he is still trying, little does he know killing Shaw is the catalyst for Erik to turn into Magneto and the events that transpire on the beach.

The look Charles gives him as he is lying on the floor and Erik is calling him his brother is superb, as he knows Erik has gone to far to ever follow their dream in the way Charles wants.

My favorite scene in the movie too. I can't say enough things about this excellent scene.

It's such an emotional moment and incredibly powerful acting from both James and Michael.

You know, I really think that Charles and Erik could have found a middle path, if Erik wasn't so radical. Charles was more willing to listen...he took Erik's advice that they should train the kids, that they had to protect themselves. Sometimes I think that some people mix up being optmist with being dumb; which Charles certainly isn't. The thing is, both would benefit greatly from each other. Erik would teach Charles to be more alert and a bit less trusting, and Charles would help Erik achieve his inner peace, without taking away the rage he neded to move on. So it would have been a dream they both wanted.
Oh well.

^Thats whats so great about the characters, if they worked together, they could achieve their goals, and Charles understands this, its whay he'll never give up on Erik, but all Erik sees when he doesnt see mutants siding with him is Nazi's and its why he'll never find peace. He says to Charles in FC he cant differentiate between Moira and other humans, but its Erik who cant differentiate between friend or foe, especially once he has crossed that line of killing Shaw.
