In your opinion, what's the best war film? Don't say BLOOD AND GUTS!!! because they all have that. ;)

I like Saving Private Ryan, We were Soldiers, and Blawk Hawk Down. :D

I like them because they are all very realistic. :happy:

probably one of my most hated genres along with westerns.

having said that, the best one is full metal jacket.

There is no best war film.

They all have unique qualities

The real question should be, how many have you seen ?

no, I like We were Soldiers because of the authenticity of the movie. It only had a few minor "unreal" stuff. and they actually spoke vietnamese correctly.
