[Film] Best War Film?

A genre I love, but there have been so many from the original All Quiet on the Western Front to the present day.

I'm going to go for Cross of Iron. I'm pretty sure Peckinpah got the way the Eastern Front fought was accurate i.e. complete butchery.

I never thought James Coburn would be cast as a German infantry Sergeant but he pulls it off perfectly, the ending of the film is both awful and sublime...

Full Metal Jacket
Lawrence Of Arabia
Apocalypse Now
Bridge On The River Kwai
The Thin Red Line
Paths Of Glory
Aliens (definitely a war film)

Albion and Premier League latest from Sky Sports
