Best War Movies

Achilles

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Lawrence of Arabia

All time favorite our leaders should read Lawrence's seven pillars.

Wonderful scenery and excellent acting.
Lawrence wrote the book on guerrilla warfare.
Well portrayed.

22Paths of Glory
23We Were Soldiers

Having served in the army for over 20 years, and having a pretty good understanding of military life. I think this movie hits a home run for it's realism.

So compeling brings me to tears everytime - Aziel

Another Mel Gibson masterpiece -

So realistic, amazing action and a nice ending.

24The Patriot

A great story about a man trying to hold onto his family when his country needs him the most I thought it was one of his best movies

Best american revolution movie ever. No doubt about it. Who ever doesn't like it can bug off. Thanks bye.

My favorite movie ever! So well made and accurate. Mel Gibson is just amazing andtough as nails.

25A Few Good Men

Not a war movie!

26Casablanca

One of the greatest films of the twentieth century. But this is not a war film.

27The Hurt Locker

I legitimately started crying seeing that this is at #27. This is the best war movie of all time!

Very Tense and at some times sad and it tottaly disserved to win Best Picture

28Enemy at the Gates

This is just EPIC, how many movies have you seen about Snipers pitting their live like a game of cat and mouse?

Ridiculous Snipin Action, Jude Law's best movie -

29Dr. Strangelove (Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb)

Gentlemen, there's no fighting here, this is the War Room!

30The Human Condition III: a Soldier’s Prayer
31A Bridge Too Far

A good example of the fog of war

32Grave of the Fireflies
33The Great Escape

Master cast and crew plus the first motorcycle chase -

34The Thin Red Line

Really underrated, should be top ten

This movie is like the Saving Private Ryan of Pacific Theater.

35Das Boot

A shame that it's placed under "The Patriot".

36Tora! Tora! Tora!

A well-made film that is both thrilling and informative. - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

37Top Gun
38Apocalypse Now Redux
39Pearl Harbor

This movie is just a more unrealistic movie.All it is is basically a love story with a couple of explosions.

40Glory

Tie with Saving Private Ryan, this movie is easy top ten and one of my all time favorites. Have shown it to years worth of American History classes and have yet to have even 1 kid not love the movie and find it inspiring.

This is my fav movie period, it is highly detailed, plus it won a lot of awards
