I would have to say the moment Jean dies in X2. I've cried so many times watching that scene. It's that last look she gives to her friends before leaving the plane. You can see she is very brave and doomed.

The Charles paralysis in X:FC comes a close second.

I think that Charles final speech in X2 was pretty emotional, but yeah I think that Beach scene, when Charles says he carn't feel his legs....that was powerful.

Agreed about the scene with Charles feeling Eric's sadness with the love/death of his mother.

I think its one of the few scenes of the franchise where the direction of the scene, the music and the actors all together made the scene feel strong and emotional.

I get a little emotional there, but havent cried yet watching a x-movie.

Maybe when I see first class at home in the coming months Ill cry for the first time.... Ill tell you that day

Definitely Erik paralyzing Charles. I mean you could tell that Erik did not want that to happen and that he still thought he could still be on the same side as Charles.

Although Hank trying to convince Raven to take the "cure" was sad as well. Telling her that her blue form would never be considered beautiful.

I beg to disagree!

James Marsden was amazing at that scene!

I really can't watch that scene without laughing because of him.

I don't really have a problem with Marsden in that scene other than the fact I was wondering, "What happens when Cyclops cries? Does his tears fire out like laser beams or something?"

My issue with that scene was because a huge wave of water was about to hit them and a guy named ICEMAN just sat there and didn't do sh**. Sure, let the one with the TK powers needlessly sacrifice herself while you just sit there cowering like a p**sy.

I still really like that movie, but... the movie version of Iceman sucks.

None of the FC moments listed registered with me. There's too much logic leaping going on for me to feel for Jean in X2, and too much general pain experiencing TLS to feel for anything there either.

... guess I'm not liking these films for their emotion lol.

I will say Raven being cured and abandoned in TLS was actually pretty effective. The rush of the film actually enhanced the coldness of that scene.

Xavier being crippled, but Xavier dying was the most WTF moment and pretty sad.

I voted beach scene, Xavier getting shot, Erik forgetting about the missiles and running to him. And Charles being deserted by both his surrogate sister and his best friend, and "I can't feel my legs..." It was heartbreaking.

I think everytime you watch that scene it gets sadder and sadder, because you start to notice little things...the way their faces change, from terror to rage and guilty and pain. SO much great acting going on it's not even funny.

I think it shows how great acting is, like, the key to a successful scene. Although I consider Jean's sacrifice one of the saddest moments in the franchise, I agree with some here who said that James Marsden' terrible overacting almost ruined it. Almost.

But McAvoy and Fassbender...wow. You can feel how much they're into the moment, and into the minds of their characters. I almost couldn't breath. Damn, I have to watch this movie again.

Now, I'm still coming to grips as why, after such an emotional moment between the protagonists, things would just end like this:



"I'll just go then." I mean, really Erik?! Really?!

I love her First Class drawings.

Seems like the one showing any real emotion was Jackman.

A tie between Jean's death and Magneto paralyzing Xavier.

Saddest moment is probably First Class not doing as well in the box office compared to other X-Men movies. Seriously it's arguably the best movie in the series, please watch it again so that we can secure a sequel.

Jean's sacrifice at the end of X2 for me, I just get misty eyed every time Scott breaks down in the arms of Logan. I didn't have a problem with Mardsen's acting in the scene, I mean he did just lose the love of his life, one hardly should expect a stoic response to that.

But yeah, close second was Erik paralysing Xavier. It was just a great scene with great acting, made all the more emotional by Mystique siding with Erik. That being said, I also thought that the scene where Hank tells Mystique that she's basically ugly in her true form to be very emotional. Mystique had clearly fallen for Hank, so for her to hear something so cruel to come out of that person's mouth, I just really felt for her.
