The 50 highest rated narrative war films of the 2010s, according to the Letterboxd community (as at 1 January 2020).
To be included, films had to be narrative features with a minimum of 1,000 views, be 60 minutes or longer and have had a theatrical or streaming release in the U.S. between 1/1/2010 and 12/31/2019. We excluded documentaries and animated films.
Defining a war film: we cross-referenced the genre tag on TMDB, IMDB and Wikipedia; we excluded fictional wars and the Cold War, and films where the war-related plot detail was background to the main action or away from the front line, e.g. The Post, Official Secrets, The King's Speech. (We recognize that journalists and politicians play significant roles in wartime, but for the purposes of defining a genre, we have veered away from those biographical type films.)
