In 1980s, just like in previous decade, not many mainstream war movies were produced. The creators were often looking for more entertaining themes than typical war movie - they reached for supernatural elements (f.e. The Final Countdown), fiction based on World War 2 (f.e. Eye of the Needle, Attack Force Z). The Cold War that finally became slightly more bearable again was used to make war movies, but this time instead of warning the politicians and the public they were more of the adventure style stories (like Red Dawn or Top Gun). Ten years after Vietnam War American cinema finally decided to tell the true stories about the conflict with such productions as Platoon. In 1980s also the German cinema came up with two important war movies dealing with their part in the war - Das Boot and Die Wannseekonferenz.
