In-Series Moments of Awesome:
Marisa's introduction. Marisa is working on her Mini Hakkero reactor in a cluttered house while grilling meat and rocking out to her theme song, just before blowing up a Reimu doll, only to be disappointed that it didn't make a big enough explosion. In just twenty seconds, you know everything you need to know about Marisa.
Alice's introduction and the ensuing battle between her dolls and Komachi's fairies.
Miko vs. EX-Rumia would have been this if Brolli wasn't the character we were forced to watch.
What little we do see of the EX-Rumia incident is quite the spectacle: Byakuren evacuating civilians, Nue and Mamizou teaming up to trick fairies into giving away Rumia's location, and Sanae's Establishing Character Moment when she saves Marisa and asks about how cool she looked spouting a one-liner.
After Brolli refuses to use his beasts to save the human village from EX-Rumia and Sakuya tells him she can't go because Remilia has banned her from resolving incidents for the time being, Sakuya freezes time to replace Brolli's beret with a pie and tells him off for his cowardice. Also overlaps as a Funny Moment.
In episode 11. Marisa punches Brolli, when he badmouthed Reimu and claimed Marisa hated her, stating that even if she is her rival, Reimu is also her best friend. And that even with her selfish tendencies, Marisa would give her life to protect the balance of Gensokyo. Also doubles as a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming.
In episode 12, Tenshi pretty much proves that she is The Chessmaster by revealing that that she knew all along that Brolli and the new gappy, and played dumb, so that he would lower her guard and that she would be able to learn his secrets, and manipulate him into involving all of Gensokyo in an incident as well as her plans to make the entirety of Gensokyo feel the consequences of a Gappy's death to prevent them from helping future Gappies.
The Diamondback Beasts vs. Flandre. It's every bit as destructive as you could imagine, but more importantly, it shows off Canon Flandre, fighting to save the Scarlet Devil Mansion from the Diamondback Beasts, even fighting fairly by Spell Card Rules. In a meta Moment Of Heartwarming, the entire Ustream crowd was cheering on Flandre during the fight's production.
Reimu and Marisa deciding to quit aiding Brolli, get him out of Gensokyo, and stop the incident themselves. Marisa takes down Chen and Ran by herself while Reimu gets a big She's Back moment fighting two celestials at the same time. For a moment, the story feels 100% vanilla, only for Brolli to come right back into Gensokyo.
After Brolli spends the movie doing everything he can to help himself at the expense of everyone else, Reimu slaps him in the face and delivers a speech about his Marty Stu antics with subtext about how audiences react to Marty Stu characters. This comes back to bite Reimu when she's one of the few left to mourn Brolli.
Another thing worth mentioning: Reimu, who has been reduced to a tour guide for Gappy Stus, is not just going to partake in another incident, but with Genji and her old PC-98 outfit since her ability to fly has been cut off by the mist, and her old outfit is more suited for an incident of this size.
Doubling as a Heartwarming Moment, when everyone wants to kill Brolli when it turns out that is what will resolve the incident, Reimu of all people is the one to tell everyone to stop, thus proving that even though Reimu can be a bitch and she may hate Gappies, she is still the protector of Gensokyo and its people.
Brolli finally admitting he's not a Colonel: he was gapped to Gensokyo by Yukari.
Before given context, Marisa trying to fulfill her promise to Reimu to kill Brolli if he goes to far. After Miko, Reisen, and Alice start gunning down the surviving Kappa, Marisa shoots Alice in the back and decides to save the Kappa herself. Cue Oriental Dark Flight and a soul-powered Master Spark. Possibly subverted in the final cut when you realize beforehand Yukari wanted to convince Marisa she's didn't want to protect the gappies as much as she thought she did, making her eat her own words about Reimu earlier...
The inevitable Brolli vs. Tenshi fight, where-in Brolli must fight Tenshi without his powers and only one life while she has three. The entire fight is fully animated, and each one of Tenshi's attacks come straight from Scarlet Weather Rhapsody, including one of her spell card attacks. Brolli, finally putting his training and huge supply of swords to good use, survives a full three rounds, even destroying one of her keystones with a fire axe.
Virtually everything that happens in the plot to save Brolli that's not a Tear Jerker: Sakuya knifing Sanae, Reimu's Heroic Sacrifice, Momiji's Big Damn Heroes moment, and Aya and Momiji taking on the Kappa Valley together.
The real reason Tenshi caused the incident: not just to Mercy Kill Brolli, but to drag Sanae, the Myouren Temple, and the rest Brolli's enemies over the Moral Event Horizon for wanting to kill an innocent boy. To solidify Tenshi's plans, Tenshi will reveal the truth about the incident to everyone if Sanae or Byakuren attacks, and they will have to go through the horror Brolli just went through. In other words, they wanted to save Gensokyo by killing a boy who only wanted to save Gensokyo, so Tenshi turned the tables on them. Also doubles as a Heartwarming Moment when you realize Tenshi didn't kill Brolli because she hated him, but to save him, as the incident led to him finally realizing the errors of his ways, and she got revenge on everyone who hated him through a Zero-Approval Gambit.
In addition to this, Tenshi's gambit manages to disprove everyone's talk that all Celestials are sociopaths, turning the mirror on them all and showing them they're Not So Different.
A personal one for Spaztique and the real Colonel Diamondback: The incomplete film drove that actual Colonel Diamondback into rethinking his writing practices. The video that followed was so good that Spaztique now incorporates it into the movie as one of the major turning points.
