9 Best Cold War Movies Streaming On Neflix

Because there weren’t any major battles during the Cold War, people who made Cold War movies often overlooked the conflict. However, the match was more of a psychological game in which the two sides, the capitalist and communist states, sought to outdo each other in terms of pride and achievements by spreading lies and propaganda about their enemies, gathering intel through acts of espionage, and funding small wars that didn’t directly involve themselves, known as surrogate or “proxy” wars.

Here are some of the top war films, from the period of the battle that lasted from the end of World War II in 1945 until the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991.

Top 9 Best Cold War Movies On Netflix

9. The King

We still don’t understand why The King wasn’t a huge success when it premiered on Netflix over two years ago. Timothy Chalamet! Rob Pattinson! Conflicting characters engage in a story inspired by Shakespeare’s “Henriad.” In other words, Chalamet’s bowl cut wasn’t sharp enough to penetrate society.

8. Beasts of No Nation

Agu, a young boy from an undisclosed West African country, is coerced into joining a group of rebel fighters and fighting in a brutal civil war. Agu and his fellow troops follow the charismatic rebel leader, only known as the Commandant (Idris Elba), down a road of darkness and violence.

The film Dunkirk, directed by Christopher Nolan, is an epic retelling of the Allied evacuation of Dunkirk, France, during World War II. It stars Harry Styles and Fionn Whitehead as young soldiers waiting to be rescued. Nolan uses the beach and the air to present a complete image of the “Miracle of Dunkirk,” a nod to war films from the 1960s like The Battle of Britain (1969) and The Battle of Algiers (1966).

4. Full Metal Jacket

The Southeast Asian military action film Paskal dramatizes the true story of Lieutenant Commander Arman Anwar, the head of an elite squad in the Royal Malaysian Navy entrusted with retrieving an oil tanker captured by Somalian Pirates in 2011.

1. Saving Private Ryan – Cold War Movies Based On True Stories (Historical Records)

In Saving Private Ryan, Steven Spielberg’s World War II drama, a stellar cast including Tom Hanks, Matt Damon, Tom Sizemore, Vin Diesel, and Ed Burns takes center stage. Following the Normandy invasion, Captain John Miller (Hanks) and his company must return to retrieve Private James Ryan (Damon), keeping with their promise to leave no one behind.

Bonus: Extraction

To be fair, Extraction isn’t a war film. But one of those mercenary, no-fear demolition romps is exactly what this list needs. You won’t find another example of this genre that tops this one for sheer scale, idiocy, and entertainment value.
