This Time, the Heroes of Patton, Apocalypse Now, and Midway Are at War With Each Other

Thanks to Hollywood, you don’t have to go to war to see the horrors and heroism of the battlefield. And maybe they’re not quite as good as the real thing, but movie-war heroes are courageous and tough — that’s for sure. So who will win a battle that pits eight heroes against each other? There’s Martin Sheen (Apocalypse Now), who knows how to keep cool when surrounded by crazies. And Tom Hanks (Saving Private Ryan) and George C. Scott (Patton), who know a thing or two about galvanizing speeches. Charlton Heston (Midway) shows there are two kinds of courage, by fighting in hellacious air battles and protecting a family in an internment camp. So which great hero of war movies schools the rest? Whom would you want in command in the trenches? Vote now — and hold onto your helmets.
