Best Shouted Line from an Epic Film?

Every epic film seems to have at least one memorable line of dialogue shouted by the protagonist or antagonist. So which line do you think is the best? And while Spartacus has a terrific, unforgettable line it's not shouted.

My vote goes to Brad Pitt screaming "Is there no one else?". Just because it's so badass.

I personally liked when Achilles is talking to his men:

"Do you know what's waiting beyond that beach? Immortality! Take It! It's Yours!"

One from Braveheart comes to mind: "...they'll never take OUR FREEDOM!"

Charlton Heston in El Cid.

He grabs the hand of the new king, slams it upon a Bible and screams for all the court to hear, "Do you SWEAR?!!!"

c'mon...you could have come up with more than 4??

William Wallace's "Freedom" ring is one of my fav's.

I also love Bill Pullman's Prez Whitmore line in "Independence Day"... "We will not go quietly into the night!" We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!"

And a better one from "Gladiator" that i always loved is "At my signal, unleash hell"

but, i picked "This is Sparta" since there was no 'other' option and there was only 4

It's amazing how this speech was both moving and cheesy.

The first thing I thought of when I read the thread subject was "STELLA!!!" from A Streetcar Named Desire. Maybe not an epic, but definitely a classic.

Second thing I thought of was "JUSTICE!!!!!" from Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back.

"GET OFF MY PLANE!"

If the president, played by Harrison f-ing Ford fighting off a whole plane of terrorists single handedly, isn't epic, I don't know what is.

Come on, you all know the "Best Shouted Line from an Epic Film" is:

William Shatner as Admiral Kirk in Star Trek II

"Khaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnn!!!!!"

You may close the thread now.


(And, yes, I do consider that an "Epic Film." )
