Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Theres alot of naff crap out there, but there are also some realistic ( combat wise ) war films aswell.

    I mean lets take windtalkers, grenades that explode into a ball of flame, enemies running at Cage while he picks them off with a thompson in one hand. I mean do the directors acutally research before doing a film.

    So I just want to know what everyone thinks the most realistic war film is in terms of when they are in combat.
  2. Not necessarilly a film, but there was a play screened on BBC during the `80`s called CONTACT based on a book by a para officer, think it caught the NI border thing pretty well 8)
  3. is it on DVD ?
  4. Unfortunately not, I have enquired but the BBC has no plans to release one, I have it on video from a screening in the `90`s but messed the timer up and its missing the last 5 or 10 mins.
