1914 All Out

1914 All Out (1987)   3/53/53/53/53/5

80 mins     Drama, TV Movie, War      

"1914 All Out" is an engrossing but remarkably low key production which reminded me of the sort of programs which once in a blue moon would be shown during lessons to give us an idea of how life was. The thing is that if you ...


1941 (1979)   3/53/53/53/53/5

118 mins     Action , Comedy, War      

Do you know what the problem with Steven Spielberg's "1941" is, it is public expectations especially those of 1979 as this wasn't a movie with a story it was a parody, it was a forerunner to "Airplane" with lots of daft gags ...

49th Parallel

49th Parallel (1941)   3/53/53/53/53/5

104 mins     Drama, Thriller, War      

"49th Parallel" on paper sounded good, a movie directed by Michael Powell whilst written by Emeric Pressburger always is a good sign as is the cast which includes Laurence Olivier and Eric Portman. On top of that a storyline ...

5 Days of War

5 Days of War (2011)   2/52/52/52/52/5

113 mins     Action , Drama, War      

"5 Days of War" starts by informing us about the number of war correspondents who have died in the past decade and I thought that this was going to be a movie which focussed on the dangers that these brave journalists put the...

633 Squadron

633 Squadron (1964)   3/53/53/53/53/5

102 mins     Drama, War      

It would be easy to say that "633 Squadron" is a flawed movie because frankly it suffers from issues with special effects and some over the top acting being just part of the problem. But then like so many war movies "633 Squa...

A Bear Named Winnie

A Bear Named Winnie (2004)   4/54/54/54/54/5

90 mins     Drama, TV Movie, War      

A Bear Named Winnie (2004) Michael Fassbender stars as Harry Colebourn a soldier in the Canadian Army Veterinary Corps who saves a bear from a hunter, a bear who he names Winnie and who becomes a mascot for the men...

A Day in October

A Day in October (1991)   3/53/53/53/53/5

97 mins     Drama, War      

"A Day in October" is another movie which dramatizes and highlights the plight of the Jews during WWII, this time the focus being on Danish Jews during 1943. Now there have been a few movies which focus on Jews during WWII an...

A Farewell to Arms

A Farewell to Arms (1932)   3/53/53/53/53/5

80 mins     Drama, Romance, War      

Wow, considering this is a movie from 1932 a lot of people have a lot to say on it. From referencing this being the first Ernest Hemmingway novel to be adapted into a movie to the fact it comes before the Hays Code and subjec...

A Gathering of Eagles

A Gathering of Eagles (1963)   3/53/53/53/53/5

115 mins     Drama, Romance, War      

I didn't look but I can pretty much guess that "A Gathering of Eagles" was made with the complete support on the US Air Force because it has that tone about it with its look at life on an Airbase where the men are primed for ...

A Place in Hell

A Place in Hell (1969)   3/53/53/53/53/5

107 mins     War      

I believe that if you wanted you could find something commendable about any movie you watched, you can read into it something which isn't there and if you wished sell it to someone as something great. If I wanted I could do t...

A Town Like Alice

A Town Like Alice (1956)   4/54/54/54/54/5

117 mins     Drama, Romance, War      

Having recently watched "A Town Like Alice" for the first time I couldn't help but be reminded of the popular TV series "Tenko", they are not the same but there are similarities and both are compelling viewing. But the thing ...

A Walk in the Sun

A Walk in the Sun (1945)   3/53/53/53/53/5

117 mins     Drama, War      

Despite focussing on a group of American soldiers as they land in Italy during the 1943 invasion with a mission to fortify a farm house "A Walk in the Sun" is a very different sort of war movie. It is different because whilst...

Above Us the Waves

Above Us the Waves (1955)   3/53/53/53/53/5

99 mins     Drama, War      

Whilst the war movies of the early 1940's were often propaganda pieces when the 50's came the war movies evolved into celebratory pieces, made to show the bravery of the men who risked their lives on various real missions. So...

Aces High

Aces High (1976)   3/53/53/53/53/5

114 mins     Action , Drama, War      

Either "Aces High" is sublimely brilliant or seriously flawed and I can't make up my mind which it is. My trouble comes from how it comes across because here we have a movie which basically recaptures what life was like for p...

Act of Valor

Act of Valor (2012)   3/53/53/53/53/5

110 mins     Thriller, War      

Looking at the cast list for "Act of Valor" may leave you perplexed; who are Dave, Sonny, Weimy and Ray as these are not names of Hollywood stars. These are the names given for real Navy SEALS as this is what the hook is for ...

Action in the North Atlantic

Action in the North Atlantic (1943)   3/53/53/53/53/5

126 mins     Drama, War      

"Action in the North Atlantic" is one of those movies which in truth isn't half bad with all the key ingredients; the storyline, the acting, the action and the direction working well. But it is a movie which is not only typic...

Against the Wind

Against the Wind (1948)   3/53/53/53/53/5

96 mins     Action , Drama, War      

Watching "Against the Wind" now and you can't but help see the similarity between this Ealing production and movies which would come later with its story of special agents parachuting behind enemy lines only to discover they ...

Age of Heroes

Age of Heroes (2011)   2/52/52/52/52/5

90 mins     War      

The read up I found for "Age of Heroes" made a big deal about two things; firstly that this was based on a true story and secondly Ian Fleming's involvement. Sadly those two things whilst are part of this movie are misleading...

The Alamo

The Alamo (2004)   2/52/52/52/52/5
