The Best Military Movies

List Criteria: Films about war, soldiers, boot camp, combat, and military conflicts.

A list of the best military movies. All of the top military movies are on this list. If you believe we've missed one though, please feel free to add it to the list yourself. Good military films give civilians a taste of what our soldiers go through on the battlefield and throughout their daily lives. While not all of these films feature war, they all use military service as a central theme. All branches of the military have been included, although admittedly, not too many films have been made about the coast guard or merchant marines. Most of these films focus on the Army, Navy, and Air Force. All time periods have been included from recent, modern militaries to the armies of the past. If you are interested in the military, then these are the movies for you.
