Achilles

The Contenders: Page 2

21 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.

22 Hacksaw Ridge

This should be a lot higher up! Mel Gibson is such a great director. - Camsmith

Needs to be way higher up - Batmaniscole

Should be in the top five - SteelCity99

Should be number 1

23 Casablanca

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

24 Gone With the Wind
25 The Last Samurai

Great movie! Love the final battle, so epic!

26 A Few Good Men

Not a war movie!

27 Troy

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!

The writers for this movie sucked. And if you think pitt acted well, you need help.

29 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

30 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 -

31 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. - eventer51314

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!

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

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

33 The Human Condition III: a Soldier’s Prayer
34 Grave of the Fireflies
35 The Great Escape

Master cast and crew plus the first motorcycle chase -

36 A Bridge Too Far

A good example of the fog of war

37 Das Boot

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

38 Top Gun
39 Tora! Tora! Tora!

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

40 The 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.
