A few of my top picks would be:

The Great Escape      (my favorite, and dedicated to the fifty)
Enemy at the Gates   (great sniping action)
Sergeant York           (terrific story)
Heartbreak Ridge       (Clint Eastwood, should I say more?)
Tears of the Sun        (most BF2-like action)

I was thinking if this post gets enough activity to update it with a top 10 list from the responses of BF2S members.

Totally.  If you are / were a Marine, this is the one.

I'd have to go with Saving Private Ryan and Band of Brothers.

Enemy at the Gates and the one with mel gibson in vietnam...can't remember the name though...
Sleep Deprived
BF2: Black Hawk Down (the book was even more graphic)

BFV: Apocalypse Now - Redux (actually better than the 1979 original)

BF42: Big Red One (Lee Marvin)

(I did like Tears of the Sun too, but more of a Ghost Recon feel than BF2 for me.)

ahh lots of good movies....but i didnt see hamberger hill..that a goodie wit clint eastwood
+0|5894|Bay Area, CA
hamburger hill didnt have clint in it iirc., you might be thinking heartbreak ridge. Hamburger hill was a cool film, but imo it didnt do anything that full metal jacket or platoon hadnt accomplished. I think both hamburger hill and casualties of war both were overshadowed by platoon and fmj, but most of those late 80's nam films are pretty well made.

Black Hawk Down is great

Tears of the Sun is alright

Saving Private Ryan is awsome

We Were Soldiers (Mel Gibson) is outstanding....made my dad, who was in Vietnam, cry

Windtalkers is okay

The Patriot is CRAZY!!!!

and the battle sequences in The Lord of the Rings are good (The Lord of the Rings is the best movie(s) i have seen)

1. Band of Brothers (i think its the most realistic one).

2. Black Hawk Down (Great action and looks alot like BF2).

3. Enemy at the Gates (Indeed the best sniper action movie ever made so far).

4. Saving Private Ryan.

5. Der Untergang

6. And this one will make you shock to see in my lineup but lets say..... im 32 years old and its more like a remenisce for me....... Rambo First Blood..... (Yeah ik know you will probebly call me a noob right now but i still think the first part was a good one for that time).
