There have been plenty of articles on motivational speeches in movies. Many of these speeches come from sports movies where the coach is trying to motivate his team or a player is trying to motivate another player. The “big speech” is a great staple for any movie and it’s the director’s chance to inspire the audience. One particular genre I’d like to focus on today is the war movie.
If there’s one place you can see some amazing speeches and monologues it’s in war movies. From Braveheart’s “Freedom” speech to the opening marine scene in Full Metal Jacket, here are 10 of the most amazing monologues in war movies.
