I know theres awesome movies out here that dont get exposure.

Recently watched the raid:redemption, like the most badass action movie of all time, and watched 9th company, an excellent war film. What else is there out there?

That movie was pretty badass.

The Siege of Firebase Gloria

The Gunny was the best part in the whole movie.

For good obscure action movies, it's pretty hard to beat a lot of the Hong Kong action/gangster movies. A good example is Kill Zone starring Donnie Yen and Sammo Hung. Of course, everybody dies at the end.:supergrin:

Spartan with Val Kilmer wasn't bad. Kilmer plays a member of a Military unit based along the lines of Delta Force (Eric Haney was involved in the production).

It has similarities (writing, dialog) to The Unit (David Mamet directed both), but is darker and grittier.

It was reccomended to me by some special operations vets.

Battleground. Best "classic" WWII flick ever, but not terribly obscure (now available on Netflix instant watch).

And not a war or action movie (quite so much) is "Ahh! Zombies!". It's a zombie movie told from the perspective of the zombies. Infected by a military "supersoldier" drug, they become unkillable but also move in ultra-slow motion. To each other, they seem normal, and to them the rest of the world is "infected" by something that makes them move really fast. But to the rest of the world, the zombies are the slow, foot-dragging groaning type you'd expect. (They're not really groaning unintelligibly, they're just talking really slow, like a record or cassette tape that's dragging). Funny flick, with a few zombie-movie action sequences.

Battleground is one of my favorite war movies. It focuses on a platoon of Glider Infantry (101st) during the seige at Bastogne.

The Zombie move sounds pretty funny. Ill check it out.

The Trench - a British WWI movie filmed almost entirely inside the trench.

Memphis Belle - WWII bomber and its crew

Gallipoli - An early early Mel Gibson Movie about Aussie soldiers in WWI.

Paths of Glory - WWI movie directed by Stanley Kubrick and staring Kurt Douglas.


Hamburger Hill - A lesser known Vietnam movie that came out around the same time as Full Metal Jacket and Platoon.

Uncommon Valor - Not techinically a War movie. Its about a band of vets that go into Vietnam to rescue American POWs. I don't want to give too much away, but they resort to using WWII weapons, which is just neat to see.

Final Conflict - Again not really a war movie, but weird in a sense that a 1980's era Aircraft carrier goes back in time to a few days before the Pearl Harbor attack.

That movie was "The Final Countdown"

It could have been epic but it was "meh" because it just set up a great movie but did not deliver. For some reason, I always wanted to see a special effects knockout of a movie where we go fight WWII with our modern military.

Well, there was that scene with the very short dogfight between a pair of Tomcats and a couple of Zeros.

To the OP, Sahara, but you want the Humphrey Bogart version, not the Jim Belushi one.

Bridges at Toko-Ri is one of my favorites. As was They Were Expendable and who doesn't love William Bendix in Guadalcanal Diary? And you don't want to miss Harry Morgan in God is my Co-pilot. Another great WWIi film was The Purple Heart. Or for that matter, The Hasty Heart.

Hardy Kruger was great in The One that Got Away. As was Clifton Webb in The Man who Never Was. Listen for the dog's name in The Dam Busters. And good God man, don't miss Sink the Bismark!

Damn, I almost forgot The Enemy Below.

It's about a British SAS unit in the first Gulf War.


Another good one featuring the SAS, though more of a counter-terrorism movie than a war flick is The Final Option. It's from the early 80's. I remembered seeing it when I was a kid, and found it a while back on Netflix. I don't know if it's still on there or not, but I haven't found it on DVD anywhere.

If you like foreign war movies, I once watched "R-Point" all the way through. Korean horror movie about the Vietnam war. Pretty strange and no worse than some of the crap recommended in this thread.

Bravo Two-Zero

That is a good one and you can stream it from Netflix. Pretty accurate to the book - can't go wrong with Sean Bean.

Which reminds me - I think you can get the "Sharpe" series from Netflix - sort of loosley similar to Rifleman Dodd, starring Sean Bean as a British soldier fighting the French in Spain in 180_. Tjhe first one is called "Sharpe's Rifles."

Which reminds me of the author of Rifleman Dodd, The African Queen, etc., C.S. Forester - If you really want some serious adventure at a quality level higher than you normally get from even big budget movies - certainly better than Master & Commander - check out the 6 or so Horatio Hornblower movies from A&E. Nothing can live up to Forester's books, of course, but they're very, very close.

The older Captain Hornblower with Gregory Peck sn't as good, iunless you just like old movies.

Those two are about the air war in the Pacific, during WW2. Excellent footage of F-6's, F-4's etc flying ops from aircraft carriers, and shooting down "meatballs" (zeroes).

Can't reccomend "Cross of Iron" enough, it is exceptional; but how can you go wrong with James Coburn acting and Sam Peckinpah Driecting?
Exceptional WWII at the Eastern Front Flick. T34's chrashing through the trench and wire, close combat and ambush's. Not exceptional, but not bad acting, but great special effects and weapons work overall three and and a half stars.

When Coburn say's "Come, let me show you where the Iron Cross Grows." You know that Captain doesn't have a hope in hell.

I remember renting that movie one Sunday night 'cause it was one of the last on the shelves and I just read some of the description but I was bored and grabbed it.

It was only when it really got going did I realize the "training exercise" I saw on the cover was leavened with werewolves AND it was about British soldiers in the predicament :rofl:

But it had Sean Pertwee as the platoon's leader, giving a great understated performance.Especially since his men THROUGHOUT the movie griped about not being able to watch the nights scoccer game Germany vs Britain. They seemed more annoyed about that than facing WW's.

Some of the stuff was funny...like when they were barricaded in the cottage and one of the privates was excited because "...this is just like Rorke's Drift..." :supergrin:

And, not necessarily a WAR movie, "Who Dares Wins"; marketed in the US as "The Final Option". Awesome, loosely based on the SAS operation at the Iranian embassy in London in 1980......supposedly used actual SAS badassery in the film.

I mentioned that one earlier. That is a really good one. I remembered seeing it when I was a kid (my father loved it), and I saw it on Netflix a while ago. Still just as good as I remembered.

Missed it! Loved that movie, and haven't been able to locate a copy. Netflix streaming doesn't work over here, may have to search out the Brit release.

Hitchcock's Lifeboat. And Saboteur for that matter. My two favorites of all his films.

And Orson Welles film, The Stranger, with him, Edward G Robertson, Loretta Young and a young Richard Long.

It's all good. Lots of badassery in that one for sure. I'm just glad I'm not the only one here who has seen it!

Good luck searching for it. If you are able to find a copy of it somewhere, let me know because I would love to get it on DVD.
