Poll: Climax for Breakfast

Well, it goes like men, there are 'night' movies and 'morning' movies...

Indeed, when it comes to dramas, nighttime is generally an ideal setting for climactic scenes as darkness emphasizes danger and allows violence to reach its highest point. Then, the sun can rise peacefully, lighting hopes for a brighter future...

But sometimes, the night plays the "quiet before the storm" part or let things escalate until they can finally implode at dawn, in the morning or let's just say a few hours before noon.

This is a compilation of memorable climactic scenes that take scene at a moment viewers can identify as the morning, either because it's shown or strongly implied (some pictures don't match in order to avoid spoiling the ending).

Not necessarily from your favorite film, which of these morning climaxes is your favorite?
