Regarding the metallic glasses, the analysis of their unique structural, thermal and mechanical properties in the form of thin films metallic glasses (TFMGs) indicates a new class of materials with superior properties. These characteristics made TFMGs indispensable and promising in many areas. Recently, Zr-based TFMGs have particularly attracted the attention with their good mechanical and fatigue properties, corrosion resistance and thermal stability. In this review, we briefly talked about bulk and thin film forms of metallic glasses and reviewed recent significant and interesting results about TFMG with Zr content. In the last part of the study, the production and advantages of Zr-based bulk and thin film metallic glasses were discussed.
