Platoon, Hamburger Hill, come on. This list catered to the 21st-century films mostly. It was a very good list, but more should've been added.

Hamburger Hill, Hacksaw Ridge, Hanoi Hilton,

Watch “City of Life and Death”..... what happened when the Japanese were in Nanking China in 1937. Great movie but very disturbing how humans can treat each other. I watched this the other day and still shocked about what happened. It’s a black and white film made in 2009. Not sure but I think It’s banned in Japan. Warning! It’s disturbing.

The Beast, great tank film (Soviets in Afghanistan) and of course Das Boot, a wonderful cast and beautifully made film. Platoon for the Vietnam era. Thin Red Line & Apocalypse Now, a whole different level.

Saving private ryan

I wonder if the people compiling this list looked at any movie prior to the mid 90's. Das Boot. The Cruel Sea.

The Hurt Locker wasn't about the war, but about one man's ADDICTION TO WAR ITSELF. The scene with the team mate chewing his ass out for shooting his leg is one piece of evidence. Another is the scene with his kid about "only loving one thing" and that is a big 2x4 to the face about it.

There is a channel on You Tube that is called Paralight Worx. It has some pretty realistic World War II short films from the point of view from of the Germans. There are definitely parts which are lacking, like swastikas, but that is because they are illegal in Germany. The special effects are also a little old, but for You Tube it is great. What really sets me off is Stuka sirens in films and fireworks. I do not fall apart, but I do get the shakes and get nervous. Surprisingly enough, gunfire does not really bother me.

Restrepo is actually like a movie. It’s realistic and all just like real life. Like it is but it’s packed with real life action like you would se in a movie. It’s a great Doc film!!!!
Nade Shift (2 days ago)
Hurt locker is a good one. And it is also a sequel to Restrepo where the next group of deployes and takes over and is fighting the aftermath.

I think all these war movies have something to offer...if you take bits and pieces from all of them..they are all pretty much realistic....my only experience was in Vietnam and the stinking bush...it was all extreme heat, mosquitos and jungles...so the movie platoon was realistic for me..i am not talking about the drama..but the lingo, the procedures and tactics and the equipment and uniforms...overall I liked the series...band of brothers..which I thought was pretty good...I am a ww2 history nut...and what those soldiers went thru was pretty bad...my father was in guadacanal, korea and Vietnam.....matter of fact when I was in marine boot camp my dad was in Vietnam at the time.....today...I am more afraid of the democrat party than anything else...I think they are a bunch of domestic terrorists.

Stalingrad was an endless, politically correct whining orgy. Embarrassing. It's what happens when Millennials straight out of Social Justice class apply their non-existing imagination to portraying what war, their grandpas, and Germany was like. And yes, I can tell because I am at least one generation closer to those times. Plus lightyears away from accepting such beta-male war doctrine for an accurate depiction of what happened at the eastern front.

Saving Private Ryan is NOT realistic. If soldiers had huddled together like that theyd be dead in 10 seconds. And Omaha Beach was 800 yards across and six miles wide.

Come and See is a masterpiece. I was sort of hoping to see the Thin Red Line, Platoon, the ever popular Apocalypse now, or the less known Hamburger Hill on this list. What do you think? Any of these are realistic enough?
Jared Kosikowski (5 days ago)
I think The Pacific. The counterpart to band of brothers is also one of the most realistic depictions of battle in the pacific. Especially the battles of peleliu and Okinawa. It was said that battle scenes were highly praised by veterans and were said to induce flashbacks or similar PTSD symptoms in some veterans that watched the series again noting the reality of the depictions of the battles for Guadalcanal, Cape Gloucester on the New Britian section of New Guinea, Peleliu, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa. Definitely very intense realistic battle sceans. Hence the $200+ million dollar budget. The most for any series ever.

Saving Private Ryan realist? What were your experts smoking?
I disagree completely with this list. I mean if you wanna talk about realism, American sniper, black hawk down, and lone survivor are top 3

Cannot understand why Das Boot or Downfall did not make the list
Surya prakash (1 day ago)
Because they are German movies and people don't watch German movies showing them as good people. Das boot is the most realistic movie out there.
