Battle: Los Angeles/Tear Jerker

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • Hector's father dying in front of him.
  • The flight over Los Angeles at the beginning while the battle is raging below. The sight of one of the biggest cities in the country getting torn to pieces, fires burning everywhere, smoke in the air, anti-aircraft fire blazing desperately into the sky.... The soundtrack at that point just hammers the horror and tragedy home.
  • The (completely inevitable, given the genre) death of the lieutenant with the pregnant wife.
