veryone loves a good war movie, especially if it's based on a real event or if there are great special effects. This is a list of my personal favourite Top 5 World War II movies.
This is the story of D-Day, the Normandy Invasion of 6th June 1944, which covers all the main events of the landings, from the airborne drops, the commando assaults, and the seaborne landings. With a cast of big name actors as long as your arm, it's an amazing accomplishment.
Also with a cast of big name stars, including Steve McQueen, this tells the story of a mass escape from a Prisoner Of War Camp in Germany, and is based on a true story.
Directed by and starring Tom Hanks, this tells of the US Army efforts to locate a Private Ryan just after D-Day, since his 3 brothers have just been killed in other actions around the globe. The opening of the movie has a vividly accurate portrayal of what it was like to come ashore on Omaha Beach in one of the early waves on D-Day.
The movie tells the story of the German counterattack in the Ardennes Forest in December of 1944, and has many good sequences. For me it is spoiled in part by the German tanks actually being post war American light tanks with crosses painted on the side, and a very low grade ending when the German tanks ran out of fuel and the Americans destroyed a fuel dump. Apart from that it's a classic.
This is a long and dramatic version of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on 7th December 1941, and an excellent movie with great effects and a star cast.
