    What do you think the greatest act of self sacrifice/ act of love in a Film (Please start the post with the name of the of the film so people do not have to read the spoiler if they do not want to).

    I would have liked to have said X-Men 2 since they are may favourite bunch of guys and galls, Jean Grey being my favourite of them but my nomination for greatest self sacrifice is in:
    Tale of Two Cities.
    How greater a love can there be than that Sidney Carlton swaps places on the guillotine to save the life of the man he hardly cares for (Charles Darnay ) because the woman Sidney loves (Lucie Manette) loves Charles. Even one of his enemies (John Barsad) comes to respect him with his noble act of self sacrifice. Most of us would have let they the opposition be put to death and think that is the opposition out of the way but not Sidney act of un-selfish love.

    Its got to be DARK BLUE WORLD the young kid sacrafices himself to save his friend. A guy twice his age who stole his girl then accused him of trying to kill him. This is a brilliant movie considering the budget and cast of unknown actors. Makes a mockery of the Pearl Harbour movie [not that it would take much!]
    I don't know how they managed to have a czech german and english language soundtrack with subtitles without spoiling the film. Although it could possibly put people off seeing it at the pictures.

    Dark Blue World is one of the films I've been pimping to any one who'll listen for the past 18 months!

    ID4 and Armageddon:D
