* Also earlier in front of the same apartment building; the army shooting a group of civilians walking out with a white flag.

to:

** Making the scene particularly memorable and heart-wrenching was the incredibly human reactions of the refugees and the soldiers. The refugees - of all races, colors, and creeds - were letting it all out, crying and rejoicing at the same time. The soldiers, meanwhile, mostly stare at the baby with silent amazement. A few get down on their knees to pray. A couple try to hide tears with sniffles. Another guy looks on completely oblivious to his commander squawking on the radio. And yet it seemed as though every one of them was saying "Oh God. Our lives were ''not'' wasted." A great performance by the movie's "extras".
** That scene with [[spoiler:the soldiers]] is all the more awful because of what happens a few seconds later. [[spoiler:Someone from the building starts shooting, the spell is broken, and as Theo and Kee run for their lives the soldiers obliterate the building in a hail of bullets]].
*** A sign of the significance of the birth. That rocket flew close enough to them that, had there been any shrapnel, it might have killed them. The rebels didn't get any more shots off after someone fired that rocket.

* Luke holed up in the shelter facing off with British soldiers. His confession to Theo about how he remembered his beautiful baby sister. Said in a tone like he wondered how he ended up a KnightTemplar with multiple bodycounts.

* Marishka leaving Theo and Kee in the boat only [[spoiler:only for everything to explode moments later.later]].
** She was underground, though, so if she didn't immediately head back to the surface, there's a decent chance she survived. Unless the government came in afterwards to "mop up" the survivors, of course...

** [[spoiler:As Miriam is performing the rites]], Theo steps behind a tree to smoke a cigarette. Before he can even light it, he breaks into quiet tears of despair. Creator/CliveOwen portrays it so realistically that it's hard not to cry with him.

Added DiffLines:

* As the film climaxes, the British government and the refugees begin a full-scale war, but the fighting briefly comes to a halt [[spoiler: when the fighting refugees and soldiers, for the first time in eighteen years, hear the sound of a crying baby. Full stop. All the soldiers and Fishes stop fighting. Total silence in the warzone as soldiers part to let the baby through, several of them dropping to their knees and making the sign of the cross. Once they're free of the building, someone fires a shot and [[BlastOut fighting resumes]] in a viscerally realistic way.]]
