Top Ten Saddest War Movies

The Top Ten
1 Schindler's List

Amazing true story, the theme alone almost moved me to tears!

2 Saving Private Ryan

I couldn't even hold it through the image of all those bodies on the beach in the aftermath. You are guaranteed to cry a river when the mother of the Ryan's has to accept that 3 of her sons are gone. This movies packs a punch and will always be remember as one of the best and most effective war movies of all time.

My favorite scene was when the last remaining soldiers of Cpt.Miller's group including Private Ryan were in the Alamo. It was really sad when Horvath died. After he tried got shot three times carrying a bazooka to destroy a Tiger Tank.

Cpt. Miller: You okay Mike!
Horvath: Yeah fine, Just got the wind knocked out of me."

3 Full Metal Jacket
4 Black Hawk Down
5 Braveheart

Freeedom...love it.
But where is the last mohican and the last samurai? shoukd definitely be on this list as well as head of clouds

6 Platoon
7 300
8 Grave of the Fireflies

I know that the reason this isn't at the top is because not as many people have seen it but to be honest this is the saddest movie I've ever see... PERIOD.

This should be number 1, yet it is below Full Metal Jacket.

Should be in top ten of the best movies ever made.

9 The Patriot
10 We Were Soldiers

'Tell them we were soldiers' that line just gets me as my husband was a soldier.

The Contenders
11 The Boy In the Striped Pajamas

Oh my god I cried legit we finished the book in class and curiosity got the best of me and I watch it and I was in tears by the end. I feel like when I watch it with my class they will be crying as well.

Oh my goodness. I never saw the movie, but I read the book, and I know enough. This one's a real tear-jerker. It belongs at #1.

This movie was so sad, when the mother started wailing our entire class was flooded with tears

12 Gladiator

My name is Gladiator! People tend to call me Russel Crowe, but I prefer to be called 'The greatest badass in Roman history!

13 Fury
14 War Horse
15 Pearl Harbor
16 Come and See
17 Lawrence of Arabia
18 The Deer Hunter
19 Hacksaw Ridge

Explain to me why this isn't first. This is honestly the best movie.

20 Glory
21 American Sniper

This movie not only shows the horrors of war but also shows how it can effect the family of a soldier, this movie should be number one due to the fact that there is no happy ending and no one is happy everything just keeps getting worse and when it starts to look better it just gets worse for Chris

22 Lone Survivor

This movie is so sad! SPOILER alert everyone accept one of the Seals die and you get very attached to each of them just to watch the die.

23 1917
24 Unbroken

This is a really well made movie.

25 A Bridge Too Far
