The Top 7 Fourth of July Movies, According to One Locksmith Company
1. Independence Day
What better movie to start with than the one with Independence Day in its name? Sure, it may be mostly about saving the earth from an alien invasion, but it’s a classic that deserves to be on any list of Fourth of July movies. (Plus, it was released the day before July 4, 1996.)
2. Born on the Fourth of July
A story of innocence, courage and a whole lot of patriotism, this Tom Cruise-led film is another classic. It may have been released in 1989, but it still holds up with its portrayal of brave soldiers and the ramifications of what it takes to defend this country’s freedom.
3. The Patriot
Go back to the beginnings of this great country with this powerful, moving story of the American Revolution. Starring Mel Gibson, it tells the tale of a farmer who fights the British to avenge his murdered son’s death.
4. The Sandlot
The only thing more American than the flag, fireworks and friends/family? Baseball. This movie may not explicitly revolve around the Fourth of July, but it has a memorable fireworks scene and is nostalgic for both the young and old. A must-see.
5. Top Gun
Just as fireworks can get your blood pumping, so can fighter jets screaming across the sky. Grab the popcorn and turn the surround sound system up for this 80’s classic starring Tom Cruise. (Maverick and Goose are legends.)
6. Yankee Doodle Dandy
An oldie but goodie, this classic movie features lots of patriotic singing and dancing, including songs like “You’re a Grand Old Flag” and “Over There.” It stars James Cagney and was released way back in 1942, but everyone can enjoy it during this special holiday.
7. Captain America: The First Avenger
For a more recent option, check out one of the earliest films from The Avengers series. Chris Evans plays the role of Captain America perfectly and inspires us all to do more for our country. Plus, there are plenty of special effects, so what’s not to love?
