  1. You forget about US ARMY SPECIAL FORCES , AKA Green berets(ODA595) From movie 12 strong.

  2. tropa de elite representando

  3. Jamaican dread giving you a shout out 8763767881

  4. Are You kidding? You are really snooty people. Don't you look to other special forces outside of America?

  5. شكراءعلي يتيوب.انا.بحب.افلام.الاكشن

  6. The top two would be the BORG & the Q continuum

  7. US armyin war:🤏
    US army in movies:💪
    Change my mind

  8. "saving private Ryan " must be in list

  9. the SAS are the best special forces unit in the world

  10. What about AMERICAN SNIPER ????

  11. WatchMojo meant Special Operations Units, not Special Forces. Tears of the Sun is the only movie I have seen where the operators pushed forward through the objective. That should of been number one. Also, the unit in Predator was a "rescue unit" not Green Berets. They where looking for the Green Berets.

  12. Black hawk down was army rangers and delta force

  13. "FORECON" Is not Special Forces, It is a SOC force for maritime raid and VBSS operations under the US Marine Corps.

  14. PASKAL film special force unit from Malaysia

  15. 2:50 SAS, many would argue, was the forerunner of most of the US Spec Ops units today, with only Army Rangers going back further. A LOT of the tactics and training that Navy SEALs and Army Special Forces use today, especially Army SFOD-Delta and Navy DevGru, were created and perfected by the gents from Hereford.

  16. Good list, pretty accurate in my opinion…crazy but I already knew Zero Dark Thirty was number 1, cause I love that movie!

  17. 2:20 The coriolis effect isn't anything special for a sniper for god sake. Every official sniper school teaches it.

  18. Fun fact delta also hunted scuds

  19. They left out " Team Water Purification" Pauly Shore in the Army now

  20. Predator. Number 1. Its a blend of usual and unusual. An alien…..but something the human mind imagines its possibility.

  21. where is Sayaret Matkal as dipicted in the raid on entebe

  22. Where is the list?

    Top 10 please

  23. Personally, black hawk down is the best movie ever made.

  24. Special Operation Forces is the correct term for all those units…… Special Forces is a specific unit

  25. Brasil Caraí 🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷

  26. airforce should have been included

  27. I am indian and i watched 8 out of 10 movies

  28. Tears of sun 🌞..👏🏻👍🏻

  29. just saying im not sure why he kept saying Delta instead of Rangers when he was talking about "Black Hawk Down" I know that the two snipers who came as back up were delta but the film was mostly about the Rangers. Idk maybe it's just me

  30. And u wonder why we are called the desert rats 😂

  31. Black hawk down also had dudes from the 75th Ranger Regiment

  32. The top 10th group of navy seals shouldn’t have been ranked higher then swat because swat aren’t part of special forces

  33. Extraction: Tyler Rake "Australian SASR", Gangs of London "Jaeger Corps Danish Special Forces", BOPE "Brazilian Special Forces" Jack Ryan Season 2 "German Spies Harriet Baumann and Max Schenkel" out there are a lot of Special Forces…

  34. LONE WOLF THE BEST MOVIE EVER !!!!!!!!!!!!

  35. What about 12 strong? Are you serious?

  36. Act Of Valor should be no.1

  37. INTEL run Hollywood with over–produced GQ recruiting posters – -and strictly for the clueless.

    Meanwhile – those seeking the IS REAL light ? – -as Rockefeller USURY wraps up its seven decades on the move – -Rockefeller- RED China treason project ?

    those seeking some 2020 –20/20 – -background and context on the nature of USURY – -and –final– EUGENICS -against- Adam kind ?
