Top Ten Saddest War Movies

The Top Ten
1 Schindler's List Schindler's List Product Image

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

Feel like seen some beautiful thing in this world

2 Saving Private Ryan Saving Private Ryan Product Image

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."

I am a certified PokerFace except for whenever I watch this.

Saving private ryan is so sad I cryed all the way through

7 300 300 Product Image
8 Grave of the Fireflies Grave of the Fireflies Product Image

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.

And people say animation is for kids how wrong they are

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 The Patriot Product Image
10 We Were Soldiers We Were Soldiers Product Image

This movie makes me cry a lot too, because of how a lot of U.S. soldiers got killed during war, and the main role was one of the only soldiers to survive the war! 😭

'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 The Boy In the Striped Pajamas Product Image

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

Watched it at school today and the whole class was in tears

19 The Deer Hunter The Deer Hunter Product Image
20 Hacksaw Ridge Hacksaw Ridge Product Image

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

21 Glory Glory Product Image
22 American Sniper American Sniper Product Image

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

23 Unbroken Unbroken Product Image
