12 Strong 2018 Movie Scene Chris Hemsworth as Captain Mitch Nelson and Navid Negahban as General Dostum looking through binoculars

12 Strong [2018]

Failing to establish an engaging narrative despite the potency of the source material, 12 Strong is a barely watchable war movie with silly action.
Mosul 2019 Movie Scene Suhail Dabbach as Jasem about to attack a small Isis base

Mosul [2019]

Dark, gripping, authentic, violent but not celebrating violence, and featuring almost non-stop action, Mosul is simply one of the best war movies.

The Siege of Jadotville 2016 Movie Jamie Dornan as Patrick Quinlan and Jason O'Mara as Jack Prendergast

Ghosts of War [2020]

A flawed horror with great themes (WWII and occult), good cast and cinematography that might be worth watching if you like these things.
Act Of Valor [2012] Two soldiers, one sniper and one spotter in full camouflage about to take a shot scene

Act Of Valor [2012]
