  • CNN - Best and Worst Movie Battle Scenes

    this was put on the internet about 2 weeks ago. You can send or post your comments about the lists.

    Personally, I would have liked to have seen "Cross of Iron" on the best list. The battles were extremely confusing (in a good way to me) and implied that combat is confusing, disorienting, and personal survival is paramount!

    Has anyone seen "The Battle of Britain" recently? I saw it many years ago and was impressed with some of the aerial battle scenes (no CGI! yeah!! )

    I thought "The Green Berets" and "Battle of the Bulge" should have been somewhere on the worst list.

    battle scenes

    I love it when giant media outlets, who are usually clueless make lists like this.
    I do have to say that some of them are spot on. I would certainly rate SPR Omaha Beach over Apocalypse now.

    Also if they are going to toss Star Wars under the Bridge I must say that the Hoth Battle in Empire Strikes Back was pretty cool. Also, We Were Soldiers has great battle scenes and so does Blackhawk Down.
    What about Aliens.."Marines we are leaving" also has a couple great battle scenes.
    Tears of the Sun with Bruce Willis has a superb battle scene when they are peeling back and then hold the line despite being outnumbered at least 30-1.
    Predator has good scenes, Band of Brothers is one superb battle after another.
    I could go on and on but will else someone else play.

      Good list. Yeah Hoth would be in the best if it was extended out more to a Last Stand level... (Don't get any ideas George, you've touched and ruined them enough!)

            What about Gettysburg, the battle at the end of the line?

            What about Glory, the last battle?

            And Fire base Gloria?

            Just to mention a few.

              Firebase Gloria? never heard of it! scored decently at IMBD with a 7.3/10.

              I also like a few of the battle scenes in "The Beast."
