Best War Movies

Achilles

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Paths of Glory
22 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.

23 Casablanca

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

24 The 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

25 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.

26 Gone With the Wind
27 A Few Good Men

Not a war movie!

28 The Pianist
29 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 -

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

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

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

Master cast and crew plus the first motorcycle chase -

34 The Thin Red Line

Really underrated, should be top ten

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

35 A Bridge Too Far

A good example of the fog of war

36 Das Boot

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

37 Top Gun
38 Tora! Tora! Tora!

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

39 Apocalypse Now Redux
40 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!
