Top 5 Sci-Fi War Movies Sorted As Per Their IMDb Ratings

Global cinema, including Hollywood, has used the evergreen theme of alien invasion films multiple times. Sometimes, it does show up in form of a systematic takeover, for example – what we have seen in Invasion of the Body Scratchers. And sometimes, it does show up in form of outright war. While at times it is all about the dead-serious tone, sometimes it is a little bit more inclined towards being parodic, for example –what we have seen in Mars Attack.

However, it is not required to be always about the aliens. Some of the spectacular sci-fi war films have used this theme by bringing in computer programs, robots, bugs, and in fact glitches. With that being said, these are the top 5 sci-fi films that are sorted as per their IMDb ratings –

The Terminator

IMDb Rating: 8.0
IMDb Rating: 8.0

While not much has been echoed against the actual machine war in The Terminator (1984), this is exactly what made the film come up more intimidating. Moreover, the intense scenes depicted by John Connor where he tried to avoid the laser weapon’s shots felt more like the ones from Saving Private Ryan. Thus, this exact tone is what made the 1984 released film show up as one of the best on the scale. With that said, the raters helped this film get a rating of 8.0 on IMDb.

Dune

IMDb Rating: 8.2
IMDb Rating: 8.2

The recent release of Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Herbert’s Dune is something that deserves applause. While the original source was quite an incredible story itself, the movie version is not something that viewers would regret. Moreover, the casting is also one of the biggest reasons behind the success of the film that included Oscar Issac, Jason Momoa, Rebecca Feguson, and a few other spectacular artists as well.

Avengers: Infinity War

IMDb Rating: 8.4
IMDb Rating: 8.4

While each and every single Avengers film highlights the battle within their timeline, Infinity War had an epic runtime. However, the last film of the series featured a massive war across time. But at the same time, Avengers: Infinity War has had the most epic story amongst all. With that being said, the raters on IMDb pulled Infinity War at the top out of all the Avengers movies and that is how it got a rating of 8.4, which makes it a must-watch.

The Empire Strikes Back

IMDb Rating: 8.7
IMDb Rating: 8.7

Episode 5 of the Star Wars film featured the perfect display of the makers’ magic. With that being said, every single action sequence in the movie is crafted like a masterpiece. It does include everything – from the cinematography to the visuals and from the dialogues to the locations.

The Matrix

IMDb Rating: 8.7
IMDb Rating: 8.7

Last but not least, The Matrix ranks top on the list. It managed to remain the highest-rated sci-fi war film of all time. It was the Wachowskis who introduced Trinity, Neo, and Morpheus to the world. While the film is jam-packed with some spectacular action sequels, the franchise is soon going to come back with a more satisfactory part (probably) –The Matrix Resurrections.
