Code Name: Emerald 1985 American war movie

War Movies

In 1944 the war was in stalemate on the western front - the Allied offensive in Italy got stuck in the mountainous terrain, the strategic bombers were attacking the targets deep into enemy terrain, but for both sides it was obvious that the invasion on continental Europe is the next step. Germans built the Atlantic Wall from Norway to Spain, so there were plenty of spots where the attack could start. The most obviously was Calais, since it was the narrowest part of the English Channel, but British spent last year on different disinformation schemes.

Ian Fleming, later famous as creator of James Bond character and author of novel about Agent 007, during World War 2 took part in operation that was perhaps not as exciting as the adventures of the character he created, but still of equally great importance to the world. Fleming was organizing No. 30 Commando unit, later renamed into 30 Assault Unit, a commandos group that operated in Europe as part of British intelligence - from collecting pieces of information to capturing enemy bases at the end of the war. Age of Heroes tells the story of one of the operations of No. 30 Commando.

Flags of Our Fathers 2006 American war movie

The problem with modern American war movies is that either they were made as adventure flicks that had very little to do with reality or they try too hard to be important, to be accurate, to be patriotic and tell the true story from war times. Flags of Our Fathers is unfortunately the shining example of trying too hard.

The Burmese Harp 1956 Japanese war movie

While World War 2 had clearly split countries on two camps - Axis and more or less rest of the world - in cinema it wasn’t that clear, which is hardly surprising. After all not many people would like his own country being depicted as the bad guys, but rarely there were exceptions. The Burmese Harp deals with not World War 2 or heroism of the soldiers, but rather with what happens when the war ends.

Lorelei: The Witch of the Pacific Ocean 2005 Japanese sub movie

Japanese war movies were rarely glorifying the war itself, rather concentrated on human aspect of the war, but of course the exceptions were those movies that were based not on the historical events, but rather on fiction. Lorelei: The Witch of the Pacific Ocean was based on the popular novel that incorporated a manga-like style and sci-fi storyline.

Band of Brothers 2001 World War 2 mini-series

After the success of Saving Private Ryan it seemed that it was the ultimate production that set the standards that can’t be made beaten. And that was true, many directors later tried to make their war movies similar to Saving Private Ryan, f.e. Assembly, Enemy at the Gates or Fury, but none of them reached the same level of realism, the atmosphere and storytelling. At least until Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg did not come up with one better - Band of Brothers TV mini-series.

Wake Island 1942 American war movie

Wake Island was one of (if not the only) war movie in history that was filmed when the events depicted were still going on - first scenes were shot in California while Japanese were still bombarding Wake Island.

Hacksaw Ridge 2016 American war movie

War Movies

Since the success of Band of Brothers Americans were trying to find a true World War 2 story that could be equal to this amazing mini-series. First there was Pacific mini-series based on similar idea, but failed to gain much recognition, later there was Unbroken that was far from being even remotely interesting, British The Railway Man was similarly hard to be called a great success. Hacksaw Ridge was based on amazing World War 2 story and... failed even worse.

Hell is for Heroes 1962 American World War 2 movie

During 1960s American war movies were going through new phase - instead of glorifying the World War 2 there were movies with anti-war message or building adventure movies around the theme of war. Hell is for Heroes is actually both...

American Major Pike is one of the Overlords, high rank Allied officers with detailed knowledge of the upcoming landing operation in Normandy. While he is visiting Lisbon in 1944 German intelligence tries to kidnap him, but what they have planned for him is not senseless beating in the dark cellar.
