What was the Most Emotional/Heartfelt Moment in "Man of Steel"

Seeing Krypton dying and Lara just having her husband die and her son taken away.....seeing her say "Make a better world,Kal." I get so emotional :'(
Also when Clark comes home and sees Martha Kent and she says she was afraid they would take him away from her, I get teary eyed too.

Such a great movie. :)
 
The scene with young Clark and Martha at the school was really fantastic too. That piano tho.....:(
 
The look on Clarke's face when Pa Kent let himself die was really strong, Henry acted the crap out of that scene. You really felt the "just go and super speed grab him" but Costner expression of "no" really convinced that put in that situation you probably wouldn't either.
It really sent the message of someone who was told to suppress their every instinct all their life

I really liked that scene, too, but... It bothered me that the teacher didn't make the other kids leave. No way they would've been left to watch. That bugged me a little.
 
I got tears in my eyes when Pa Kent died, think its more cause I lost my own Dad tbh I always find it sad when I watch stuff and Fathers die.

The scene where he screamed after snapping Zod's neck, I could just feel the emotion it ran right through me.

Also seeing his Pa Kent watching young Clark playing with the cape on welled me up too.

Lara dying alone on Krypton made me feel sad.

Oh and how can I forget Jenny, until I saw Perry hold her hand and deciding to stay I thought she was a goner. The actress who played her was fantastic in that scene as was Fishburne.

But happy emotions were also felt during this film especially at the end when he had the glasses on. I just could not stop smiling after that.

Also Clark's first flight I was as joyous watching it as he looked doing it.

Such a powerful film hit me on several levels.

Agreed, more than any comic book film to date, IMO. Which is why I was surprised when I saw threads popping up about the movie being cold or lacking emotion or heart. It was the complete opposite for me.
 
At the center of it, it is cold. Then again, the Nolan Batman films were also cold. Heartless? Lack of emotion?

The film has plenty of heart and emotion.
 
The movie had many great emotional moments. But to me, the strongest was definitely Pa Kent dying. Especially because, as many said, Cavill acted the crap out of that scene. The whole range of emotion, just alone the way his lips were shaking in that very moment, completely sold the scene.
 
I saw some posts mentioning on how they wish the option of Jenny's scene with Perry was included in the poll; my apologies for not clarifying better earlier but the option where it says Superman racing against time to stop the world engine was actually meant to include that scene between Jenny and Perry in it as well, thus if that was your favorite emotional moment, then you can choose that option if you wanted to.
 
1. Lara and Jor-el holding baby Kal-el for the last time - I'm just so glad they allowed the time for that moment, because for me it seemed like one of the most natural in the film. It gets me every time, and I love it when a film has me emotional within the first 10 mins cause it means I'm more invested.

2. Supes defeating World Engine/Perry and Jenny - it was just such a great climactic moment, and the score was fantastic. Best moment of actual triumph in the film.

3. Pa Kent's death - I have my issues with the reasoning, but agree with most on here. Henry sold the moment enough or it to hit my heart.

4. Lois/Superman holding hands in the desert - was another natural moment were the characters finally seemed to have room to emote. Their friendship may have been rushed, but they both did a great job of expressing the feelings of gratitude and compassion for each other.

5. Supes kills Zod - again, despite my issues, Cavill's reaction was a tear jerker moment.

6. Pa Kent watching little Clark - wish we'd had moments like that earlier on actually. Just that little wordless look of love for his son, and wonder at what he might become. Was a gret moment.

6. Pa Kent reveals Clark's origin - it's further down cause I felt it could have been a bit better, but still an emotional moment nonetheless.

7. Lara watching Krypton's destruction - hard not to feel the impact of how much is lost in that moment.

This scene got to me, it was very emotional and somehow akin with kids who have autism in real life. Super cute Kid Clark and Diane Lane nailed that scene!!!
 
This is a tough one. I went with the scene where Clark is hiding in the janitor's closet and Martha comes to help him. As someone who periodically felt like a freak growing up, constantly harassed by prick kids and a**hole teachers, I could really relate to that scene. Something similar happened to me when I was in the first grade (sans superpowers), and my parents were the only ones who gave a damn. So that scene really hit me hard.
 
Even Waterworld?

Hahaha. Actually, I didn't hate that movie. If it came on while I was channel surfing, I'd watch it. When I think about it, I probably haven't even seen half of Costner's movies. I thought The Postman was one of his cheesiest endeavors, however.

One of the worst lines in movie history:

"You have a gift, postman. You give out hope like candy from your pocket."

I can't even type it without cringing!

:wow:
:pal::pal::pal::pal:
Gotta watch that movie
 
More of an "OMG" moment, but an awesome moment nonetheless.
 
I picked that they were all equally emotional.
 
I saw it again for the second time.

And its still Kal-El being born at the start of the film.

Just like the first time I watched it I cried again. Thats easily a record for the fastest a movie has ever gotten me to cry. The music, seeing the baby appear in the machine, its all just too much.

2nd would be Zods death and 3rd would be Clark locked in the room
