    Passion of the Christ

    Might not have been the best I've seen, but it was certainly the most powerful

    The Pianist was pretty powerful to me, also the last 45min of the Return of the King

    For sheer, gripping drama throughout, I'd have to give the palm to The Naked Prey starring Cornell Wilde.

    I found Children of Men to be one of the most powerful of recent memory.

    Also, Braveheart

    I agree, the motorcycle car chase scene was so intense! Also when he visits his rich government minister(?) friend, they have this opulent dinner and are served by multiple waitstaff in the huge government building...it's so pointless, knowing that you're the last generation of people.
