Hello movie mania, back again here with me to look for some interesting information. Today, I have something that I want to share with you. Something that I’ve just seen recently. I want to show you some of the best war movies ever made by mankind.
I know the fact that war is something terrible. It has no good effect on any side. In a real war, the loser loses their lives, and the winner doesn’t get something better either. But in movies, we can put aside of that thing a little while. Why? Because the movie is basically just for entertainment right? We don’t really need to go deep down of the movie. And throughout the years, war movies has been released many times with different story and different perspective. Want to know all the best movies about war? Keep scrolling down below.
The Best War Movies Ever!
1. Saving Private Ryan
I put this movie on the number one list because I think this one deserves it. Why? Because the movie really reflecting the horror of war. The beach invasion scene is one of the memorable moments of the movie. I’ve heard that when this movie was released and while the war veterans watched it, they can’t see it for too long because they said that the scene really brings them back to the wartime. And those veterans don’t want to watch it because it really showed them their horror memories of their friends getting shot with a machine gun.
2. 13 Hours
While Saving Private Ryan is a movie with the WW2 theme, 13 Hours is a war movie based on a real story from the attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. In this movie, we can see the action of US army who tried to rescue the consulate from Libya and get him out of the country. While doing so, they are encountering a lot of resistance from the Islamic Militants (ISIS probably). The ending of the story really tragic. The US consulate was killed during the ambush. And let me said it again, this movie based on actual event.
3. Black Hawk Down
Another war movie to show how great American soldiers are. In this movie, you can see the real events of the worst armed conflict between the US army and Somali militias. The mission of this armed conflict is to remove some men that involved in civil war. The attack went haywire when two of the Black Hawk helicopters were downed by the militias. And when the army got the words about Black Hawk down, they all try to rescue everyone along the chopper.
4. Letters From Iwo Jima
We are all bored of war movies with the perspective of US army. But Letters From Iwo Jima is a war movie from the Japanese perspective. In this movie, we can see the story of a Japanese soldier who desperately fought off the attack of US army while he questioning if he is doing the right thing or not. We should know that in a war, there are two sides fighting over something and there’s no such thing as right or wrong.
