Few cinematic experiences are as exhilarating, or as terrifying, as the battle. These moments, when two forces square off against one another, are frequently excuses for film studios and directors to show off just what movies can do, and there is often nothing quite like the adrenaline rush one gets while sitting in a movie theater as such moments unfold across the big screen.
Battles are particularly important for both historical dramas and for science fiction and fantasy. In many cases, even battles that are fictional draw on established facts, which helps to ground them in the plausible world of reality rather than simply in the fantastic.
