    A thinking man's World War II movie!

    Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.

    A highly unique war movie as it appeals to a person's intellect. At times it drags a little but the action scenes are really good. With each successive viewing of this movie, I develop a greater appreciation of it.

    Visceral Masterpiece

    The fact that people call this film pretentious and boring blows my mind. I have watched it several times and every time it plays I am glued to the screen. This movie grips me. It grips my soul and my being. It is so beautiful yet so painful. Malick does a superb of conveying that these men are not only fighting a physical war, they are also fighting a mental and emotional war. I love the scenes of Caviezel interacting and frolicking with the locals. I love the scenes of Chaplin reminiscing about his wife. I love the stills of the grass blowing in the wind. It may seem insignificant to some viewers but showing it after specific acts meant so much. This movie is perfect. I honestly did not know it was almost 3 hours long. Even if it were 6 hours I would still be glued to the screen each time it played. A great piece of art work. Oh and the musical score is also one of the best.

    Movie shows the different ways war affects the men. Loved that the men on both sides were portrayed the same, as frightened young men. Among the chaos of war were peaceful moments in beautiful sceneries.

    Not many war films as good as this one. Quite long at 2:50 mins but it will keep your interest high. Cast mostly of unknowns (then) with a few high profile cast members in supporting roles. Not to miss

    I truly love the movies that show how man reacts to difficult situations. Equally important is how real the situation is depicted.

    This is a great ww2 movie

    Posted .

    The thin red line, is not for the average movie viewer. Most people wont get anything out of it. This is a highly philosophical film and focuses on whatt war does to men and nature rather than man to man. Several men lose their minds while others cant bare to see friends die. This is one of the only movies i have seen that actually shows the japanese as living people and not just savages. Terrence Malick shows several shots of nature in the middle of battle to show that birds have been injured, plants are full of bullet holes and animals are captured. It also shows the peacefullness of the native tribes, and once the "white man" arrives, they begin to fight, and are hit by diseases. Overalll this is a great film

    The other war film of 1998

    Posted .

    This will always be associated but should never be compared to as the other war film from 1998, the other being the visceral "Saving Private Ryan". When viewed together, one can actually experience two important battles in WWII. The battles in "The Thin Red Line" exist mostly in the minds and imaginations of the characters. The action is at times startling, yet lacks the punch of the Spielberg, which I think there are fans on both sides. The approach and mastery of Malick is not to be missed as he assembles an impressive array of characters to illuminate the horror of war. Always beautiful and moving much like his previous efforts (20 years earlier!). Criterion releases the canon in great cinematic art and this film certainly belongs there.

    I bought this because it was on sale and because I liked the score by Hans Zimmer. Overall the movie was good; not the greatest war movie, but very philosophical in nature.
