There's been no shortage of war films in the past few decades and there have been some absolute classics along the way.

10 Beneath Hill 60 (2010)

The little-known Australian film, Beneath Hill 60, follows the story of the 1st Australian Tunnelling Company as they attempt to tunnel under enemy lines and set explosives to aid the advance of their allies during WWI. The titular 'hill' in the title refers to a location in Ypres, Belgium, which was home to some of the first world war's biggest battles.

Based on actual events, Beneath Hill 60 features excellent performances, led by Australian actor Brendan Cowell, and is a gripping film that depicts the realities of war accurately as well paying homage to the perseverance of the soldiers involved. It's a great film to expand your war-movie viewing repertoire as well as broaden your knowledge of some of the lesser publicized battles of WWI.

9 Centurion (2010)

Centurion takes us way back to early second century Britain when the Romans were big on conquering all the lands around them. After a Roman squadron is eliminated by the Picts (ancient Scotsmen), all but one survivor remains, Centurion Quintus Dias, played by Michael Fassbender (at a time when Fassbender was only just beginning to make a name for himself). Lucky to escape with his life, Dias joins his fellow Romans on a quest to wipe out the Pict threat.

The film is tense, brutal and full of epic historical wartime action, with director Neil Marshall pulling no punches on the violence. Centurion is a gritty and grounded take on Roman-era conflicts and is one that will stick with you for a while after watching it.

7 Overlord (2018)

For all the horror-movie lovers out there, Overlord tells the story of a group of American paratroopers that are thrown behind enemy lines on the eve of D-Day during WWII. Their mission - to destroy a radio tower housed inside a church in a small town in France that's heavily guarded by Nazi forces. They soon find out that things are not as they appear.

Overlord is a violent and gory horror slash action film that features a diverse and quirky cast of characters. The film is tense right from the opening scene and things turn even darker once the American soldiers discover a series of horrific experiments taking place on unwilling victims. The film mashes various genres together and is a nice departure from the often grounded and gritty portrayals we see in films based on war. A good watch if you enjoy your body-horror films.

If that wasn't painful enough, he's then discovered and captured by the Japanese Navy and taken to a prisoner-of-war camp, where he faces more torturous challenges.

4 Hacksaw Ridge (2016)

Temperatures had already risen by 0.8C since the industrial revolution and although last year’s 1C rise may not be repeated every year from now on, scientists said 2016 could turn out to be another exceptionally warm year as the El event continues.

Director Mel Gibson has never been one to shy away from showing brutality in his films and it's no different here. The film's violence comes late in the story, however, as we're treated to a heartfelt character study before the action arrives. Hacksaw Ridge pays tribute to the human spirit in adverse times.

3 American Sniper (2014)

Bradley Cooper turns in a career-best performance in Clint Eastwood's American Sniper. This biographical film tells the story of Navy S.E.A.L. sniper Chris Kyle (Cooper), who would become known as the deadliest sniper in US Military history.

The film's riveting war scenes include one extremely tense standoff between Cooper's character and a rival sniper, which is the highlight of the film, but American Sniper is at its core, a film about the after-effects of war on its soldiers. It's this theme that lays heaviest on its audience and is one that's reflected with poise and respect by the director.

2 Zero Dark Thirty (2012)

Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty is not so much a classic war film like some of the above, but rather it's based on the war on terrorism as it highlights the conclusion of the decade-long hunt for al-Qaeda's notorious leader, Osama bin Laden. The film is not afraid to confront some of the more controversial aspects of the search, including questionable practices by the CIA revolving around getting information from their prisoners.

Zero Dark Thirty is one of the more wordy, complex films on this list that gives credit to the due process involved in finding Osama bin Laden, as contentious as it may be. The final act which sees a raid on the terrorist outpost hiding bin Laden is worth the wait, however, as it's extremely thrilling.

1 Dunkirk (2017)

Arguably the greatest war film to come from the 2010s is Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk. Set in WWII, the film sees allied forces trapped and facing imminent doom from their German adversaries as they scramble to evacuate the town of Dunkirk, France. The story is cleverly told from three different perspectives - air, land, and sea, and contains minimal dialogue, focusing more on the music and visuals to build the tension.

Dunkirk should be considered a masterpiece of wartime cinema, up there with the likes of Apocalypse Now and Saving Private Ryan, and is easily one of Nolan's best films (if not the best). The film is suspenseful all the way through and doesn't rely on common tropes to get the point across. It's a truly unique and visceral war film that will keep you guessing and have you on the edge-of-your-seat.
