    well i certainly agree with number 1. that scene is the only thing which is bearable about that film. the rest is just garbage.

    i also think that the helicopter attack in apocalypse now isn`t really a battle, its just them shooting the hell out of stuff

    Score! Great to see Lord of the Rings claiming 20% of the board. Couldn`t agree more.

    @quackor
    I forgot about that scene and i agree that was a good part of that film. I was reading about that movie also and did you know that the scene was only shot in one take? i forgot how long and from that part to what but most of that battle scene wasn`t a collaboration of shots they started in the streets and i think it went up into the building one 1 continuous shot. There was a couple other scenes like that in that movie also. Its a style the director likes.

    All of the Lord of the Rings battles were epic. As a matter of fact, they might as well put 1 big entry titled "Lord of the Rings" to suffice for the entire trilogy as a whole, which is to me like one huge epic battle scene.

    Wouldn`t have put Kill Bill or Apoclypse Now in there, but that`s one of the most agreeable top ten lists I`ve ever seen. Well done.

    hmmm i think the battles scenes from `Days of Glory`
    and `Taegukgi:Brotherhood` should b up there, those are on a par with the SPR battle

    Where the hell is "Team America: World Police"?!?!?!

    Those puppet battles were so well choreographed, I couldn`t believe the moves they were pulling off.

    *imagines two marionettes flopping around near each other*

    yeah...

    drat you, Randy. That isn`t funny.

    I call shenanigans on this list because #3 is way too high. The top 5 was actually good, though.

    "START WITH NUMBER 10"
    I bet that`s in capitals just to please Opie.
    No more backwards countdowns.

    "Coppola`s incredible attention to detail and big-budget theatrics are evident in the film`s centerpiece -- an unforgettable helicopter strike."

    definitely not the centerpiece of that movie. and i guess it kind of fits there in the list, doesn`t have the scale of the others but coppola was a genius and the scene`s perfect. good list overall.

    Not a bad list, but I think the aftermath of that battle in 300, where the two Spartans are fighting against the Persians, or the fight versus the Immortals should replace the 300 clip they have there.

    Shouldn`t they just have had the whole movie of 300? It is just one beautiful battle scene.

    The charge at Lone Pine in `Gallipoli`....the charge of Beersheba in `Forty Thousand Horsemen`....Neds last stand in `Ned Kelly`...pick a scene, any scene, from `Battle of Britain`...same from `Stalingrad`.
    Shock horror, not all movies are made in hollywood...
