Best War Movies

Achilles

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Paths of Glory
22 The Great Escape

Master cast and crew plus the first motorcycle chase -

23 The Thin Red Line

Really underrated, should be top ten

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

24 Enemy 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 -

25 We 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.

27 The Last Samurai

Great movie! Love the final battle, so epic!

28 A Few Good Men

Not a war movie!

29 Casablanca

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

30 The Pianist
31 Glory

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

32 Lone Survivor

I recently started reading the book this movie is based off of and...wow! These men that serve are incredibly honorable. Their self-discipline, duty, and willingness to sacrifice themselves for a greater good is awe-inspiring. In particular, the Navy SEALs are the cream of the crop: almost superhuman.

Really good movie. - NovaSupreme

This movie is 'D' best!

I watched this last night on blue ray. I was MACVSOG. This was a tear jerker. For all of you wannabe soldiers, this was the sh*t! No cavalry coming over the hill, just you and your brothers dying on some mountain in the middle of nowhere! Is it worth it Hell yes!

33 300

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

This movie is a disgrace. I bet the directors try to make it as bloody and violent as possible. Shouldn't be here.

This is my favorite movie! But how come my second favorite war movie ( the last of the Mohicans ) didn't even make the list?

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

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

35 The Human Condition III: a Soldier’s Prayer
36 Grave of the Fireflies
37 A Bridge Too Far

A good example of the fog of war

38 Das Boot

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

39 Top Gun
40 Tora! Tora! Tora!

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