16 Retro Action Movies That Make History Fun as Hell (Ranker)

"Movies about history have an uneven track record when it comes to accurately portraying their settings, but in some cases, exaggeration and inaccuracies actually work to the benefit of the period rather than its detriment. The Cold War was an anxious time for many countries, but as far as movies are concerned, it was a non-stop thrill ride of fashion-forward action. The early 20th century was driven by World War I, a bloody catastrophe with such a complex origin that historians still don't agree on what happened, but according to 'The King's Man,' it has a very simple, extremely improbable, and wildly entertaining explanation. When filmmakers decide to focus their lenses on a distinct period, they go all in; this usually leads to depictions that are more stylish and fun than an accurate portrayal could be. Whether you like cars or fashion, superheroes or ancient artifacts, Hollywood has a version of the past that will make you desperate for a time machine." - ranker.com
