There is something enduringly appealing about the war film, even if the genre sometimes features underrated performances from its main cast. These are the types of films which immerse the viewer in the dark, sinister and terrifying world of combat. However, while war films are often praised for their cinematography and epic scope, it’s truly the acting that helps to elevate them into the realm of greatness.
The men and women who appear in these films help to ground the broader picture, anchoring the drama and giving audiences people they can cheer for and care about, often showing the very human, and devastating, impact it has on the individual.
