An anti-war film is a movie that is perceived as having an anti-war theme. Some are war movies that show the negative aspects of war, while others satirize war in other ways. Many complex films may be seen as anti-war by some people, and pro-war by others.

Some seemingly anti-war films have been criticized as not truly being anti-war. This is due to the glorification of a form of masculinity that arises from exposure to war.[1]

All Quiet on the Western Front
Apocalypse Now
Ballad of a Soldier
The Bedford Incident
Born on the Fourth of July
