Komisch das in den Filmen die Armys immer als die Guten dargestellt werden, obwohl sie die größten Verbrecher sind.

Stalingrad, Cross of Iron, The Longest Day (uncut version), Gods and Generals, and Barbarians at the Gate are better than anything listed here
ed johnson (2 days ago)
Correction: "Enemy at the Gates," not "Barbarians at the Gates" -- corporate war, not actual war.

The most 'realistic' part of 'The Hurt Locker' was the scene with Guy Pearce.
Dylan GT31709 (4 days ago)
Many of those are my favorites, as well as Beneath Hill 60, Gallipoli and Windtalkers.

The Hurt Locker was one of the worst war movies I've ever seen. It came out when I was in a Light Sapper company and it was the butt of all of our jokes.
5.full metal jacket 4. The hurt locker 3. Save private Ryan 2. Apocalypse now 1. Come and see
AyBx Profgame (11 days ago)

Charl Bekker (13 days ago)
American sniper
benno291980 (13 days ago)
Ok so many complaints about this list. Glory only an honorable mention, NO Last of the Mohicans or Spartacus or Henry V?! Hell even Troy was better than 3-4 of the movies on this list.
benno291980 (13 days ago)
The Hurt Locker? Shouldn't even be Top 25

ChaotiX SkuLLS (14 days ago)
i promise you any war movie made before 1990 wont be an enjoyable watch
ChaotiX SkuLLS (9 days ago)
Carlos Martinez i saw it years ago. Damn good movie. When i say it wont be a enjoyable watch, its not because the movie is bad. I say it because modern televisions are so advanced that you can literally see the pixels when watching the old movies. Thats why i think they’re not enjoyable to watch.
Carlos Martinez (9 days ago)
ChaotiX SkuLLS I suggest you watch “come and see”
Guillermo (14 days ago)
Were was Waterloo one of the most accurate war movies ever made

The Dirty Dozen has to be one of the greatest war movies of all time. Not even mentioned or commented about. How was this movie forgotten about!
Dr Wronghouse (21 days ago)
Compare to Elem Klimov's "Come and see", many from this list are, ...just Hollywood.

I mean, I agree on private Ryan but maybe u should have added "Hacksaw Ridge" that was a really great movie
Booyaka Bambata (23 days ago)
Apocalypse Now is by far the best war movie ever. Saving Ryan's Privates wasn't bad.
Sam Price (23 days ago)

Who makes these lists?! The Hurt Locker was an abortion of a war film.
Brian Bennett (26 days ago)
And how dare you include a fictitious account like Hurt Locker over a retelling of a real event like Blackhawk Down. This list is a joke
Brian Bennett (26 days ago)
Best war movie...but Hurt Locker is on the list when the NCO goes outsider the wire by himself...like he is Rambo..if youve actually been deployed you know how full of shit Hurt locker is

My favourites all from an Italian perspective of War : 1. EL Alamein The Line of Fire, 2. Mediterraneo, 3. Divisione Folgore 4. Italiani Brava Gente 5. Lion of the Desert. Oh and a shout out for Cross of Iron needs a mention here - from the German perspective along with the movie Stalingrad (not the recent Russian one) - Essentially best ones don't use CGI.
Craig Bailey (1 month ago)
Some awful movies in this list while We Were Soldiers is not even mentioned. Best Vietnam movie of them all.

my favorite that IS in this video is saving private Ryan other thank that my actual favorite movie is not in that video but it should its called "fury" it has brad Pitt in it!
Jani Beg (1 month ago)
Oddly enough, the movies "To Hell and Back" and "A Walk in the Sun" were left off the list.
Jim Green (1 month ago)
Though this may sound a bit lame,since I never saw it, I think that Code Talkers, because it's about a group of soldiers who were covered up in history books simply because of their ethnicity--Navajos. They played a huge part in the turning of the tide in the Pacific War portion of WW2 against the Japanese. Also, I hope that some day, there's a category for the '60s movie "300 Spartans" about the world-changing Battle of Thermopylae in ancient Greece, and the Kirk Douglass movie of that same era--Spartacus.

Wait... if All Quiet On The Western Front is the 7th best war film. Why isn't it on the top 10 WWI movies list?

Red Dawn is the same as Inglorious Bastards, it takes place in an alternate reality. So it doesn't count.

There's 'Come and See' and then everything else.....'I picture myself in the existence of Klimov ( the filmmaker,) I can't imagine making anything as amazing as this, as rigourous as this, as poetic as this, as profound, as deeply meant and deeply felt as this. I don't think anything I would ever do would ever get near this level of genius' ..Katie Mitchell, Theater producer
Robert Heilmeier (1 month ago)
+T Bloopner Totally agree. "Come and See" is on a different level, hardly even comparable with the movies in this list
