Achilles

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Lawrence 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.

22 Paths of Glory
23 The Thin Red Line

Really underrated, should be top ten

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

24 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.

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.

26 Casablanca

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

27 Gone With the Wind
28 A Few Good Men

Not a war movie!

29 The Pianist
30 Hacksaw Ridge

Should be in the top five - SteelCity99

Should be number 1

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 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 -

33 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!

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 The Great Escape

Master cast and crew plus the first motorcycle chase -

38 A Bridge Too Far

A good example of the fog of war

39 Das Boot

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

40 Top Gun
