The Top TenXW
Best war and WWII movie ever. First war movie to have a REALISTIC boot camp for the actors. Ed Burns said he thought about quitting after day two. lol.
Troy ahead of Full Metal Jacket and Return of the King? Really?
Shouldn't there be a war in the movie if it's on this list? IE - Top Gun and A Few Good Men.
Pearl Harbor at #12? Really? Did anyone else find the movie laughable and really just a teenage love story stuck in a bad war film?
Overloaded with factual and historical inaccuracies. - I love the scene when a diving Japanese Zero which could dive at over 400 MPH, dropped a bomb and the bomb slowed down in mid air and dropped straight down. How does something that is traveling through the air at 400 MPH suddenely go straight down? Way to think it through Michael Bay! - corebare32
Fasten you seatbelts! The opening scene is the most intense thing ever. It puts you square in the middle of the action and doesn't allow you to escape the horror of what was WW2. - ClubberLang
Steven Spielberg's historical tale of honor, courage, heroism, dignity and hope. Truly the best of it's kind. - aeromaxx777
More Realistic than most on this list.V13 Comments
Because this is very real with the funny crazy of real combat. The extended version is even better. 300 is just a CGI/bluescreen... not a MOVIE... this is one of the best movies EVER. - jaxworld
A great story about the Vietnam War, not about the action but the traumatizing effects it has on Americans - robertoantonioortuso
This is the greatest war movie, long, interesting, great storyline - roblist
Really hammers down that war is hell. - Tbog009V2 Comments
A great and traumatising movie which gives a look at the brutal base training at the beginning and the combat in Vietnam
Boy's Listen Up, This one Sure Got Under Rated, Should be way up there
When he explodes the booby trap I had told my wife it was coming. Saw too many taken by such things, if it looks strange or out of place you run!
Seriousness with a lot of comedy good mixtureV2 Comments
This movie is better than saving private Ryan, simply because it doesn't glorify war, there are no "heros" in wars, only soldiers, it also show the trial and tribulation of a squad and their decent into madness.
This was awesome, by the way great soundtrack
I love platoon I have 3 different copies I love you platoon
This one is good but a little bit too dramatic.V4 Comments
Great deal I see no one writeen for the Schindlers's list I think it's the lack of understanding but I am sure the creater of the list knows the importance of the movie.

I think as a Jew it would actually make my dead great grandmother who escaped aushwitz and moved to. Italy so that she would not remember the disappearance of her family who died in aushwitz I cry and smile as this is one of the reason why isreal is a countryV3 Comments
It is certainly one of the few great movies on this list! It ranks among such films as Saving Private Ryan and Troy when it comes to action!
A great movie. In fact one of the few movies of the 2000's which was actually ahead of it's time
wonderful movie. gives you the experience as if you were present there.
Movie shows how soldiers care for each other in war.V2 Comments
300 is really one of the greatest action movies ever made, it's the setting wich I have liked all my life, the struggle of that tiny army against the gargantuan forces of xerxes, in this movie is all very well made, the direction is very good and the visual style is simply awesome.
In my opinion, it should be 300 1, and Saving Private Ryan 2, the rest of the list I don't care about. The battle scenes are intense, and the actors really pulled it off, One of the greatest movies ever, Watch it before you vote for saving private ryan
i like this one cause through out the whole movie u c half naked guys w great chests ;) :p - ladylonghorn

not exactly a movie... but still absolutely incredible - whufc
Band of Brothers isn't a movie, but it is a work of art. Fantastic. I watched it 4 times.
Personal Favorite of mine. Very Personal actually, you have no idea.
Greatest movie that I ever seen...
Such a great state of freedom and courage! The revenge scene is awesome and Mel Gibson is best actor of all times!
I am Scottish and I loved the movie only complaint is the historical accuracyV1 Comment
Sometimes classics are the best... It is an extremely realistic and sophisticated look at the human psyce and fear in warfare. I wrote a research paper on it and got an A!
The finest acting yet! This movie is excellent and long. This is the best movie I have seen in my life and will go down as a legend!
BraD Pitt is a acting king and this movie is one of his perfect examples!
The most fantastic and diverse movie of all time! Brad Pitt plays a brilliant role and this movie is so much better than 300!
It is one of the best movie I have ever seen.V2 Comments
Funny and has great action/war scenes but not so much to the point it's just uninteresting

Whack! Deniro and Walken at they're best. This movie is so deep and moving no way its not top 10.
The new generation needs to watch this movie, then they'll understand, and yes it's better than American Sniper.
Great movie! Love the final battle, so epic!
It is the top rated movie. It should be in the top ten.. I ever seen this kind of movie in my life. It went down as a legend for me.. Action of the hero is really outstanding..
Inaccurate the legions would never have broken phalanx when the Gaul's charged it was an entertaining remake of "The Fall of The Roman Empire
It is the top rated movie. It should be in top ten.. It is one of the legend movie.. Hero's action really mindbllwing.. I ever seen this kind of movie in my life...
" this movie is the best ever, this is supposed to be in in first place.. The background score, the dialogues, acting,. It deserves to be in the first position"
THIS is a movie. The effects used to create massive amounts of violence that defined the movie were ahead of their time.
WOW I'm suprised this wasn't even in the list in the first place its the best war movie ever
This has everything a war movie needs. Really guys... EIGHTH PLACE? Show some respect for the BEST MOVIE EVER! "!V1 Comment
