The most definitive war movie of all time. It is a classic, and to have Pearl Harbor on this list is obviously a disgrace!
Nice movies ever in my lifeV2 Comments
This movie exposes the true horrors of war and atrocious war crimes the Nazi Pigs committed.
Great, inspiring, realistic characters. Spielberg captures the European battlefield amazingly with fantastic performances from the likes of tom hanks. Moving and action packed from start to finish. definitely deserves its position at top. However I feel the thin red line deserves a higher position. Also a very moving film which illustrates how man has changed our natural world with war.
A good story without a political agenda that illustrates the dilemma faced by good men confronted by evil wearing the mask of humanity.

It's scary what nuclear war does.
A brilliant war movie. It might not deserve number 1, but bravo.V2 Comments
Based on a real battle, and considered by the UPI reporter who covered it to be 80% accurate, and who co-wrote the book with the 1st Cav officer who led the troops who said it was 60% accurate. It had its schmaltzy moments and corny dialog, but the war scenes and facts mentioned were right. The guy who narrated the opening scenes involving the French in 1954 mispronounced the place, "Ia Drang Valley" like the two letters imply in English, but it's actually pronounced like "Ya". The narrator of "Vietnam in HD" gets it right.V1 Comment
The cast and the movie was one of the best POW type movies ever. I could watch it over and over. What strength!
