The Thin Red Line is a thoughtful anti-war film, full of beautiful and striking imagery and poetic dialogue, often positioned in voiceover. It is exactly what one would imagine a war film by Malick to look like, so if you are expecting the grand spectacle of Saving Private Ryan, you may be disappointed.

Most people's critique of this film only point out the visuals and the profoundly meaningful aspects. Those are both handled masterfully, but this poetically themed un-war film left me cold. Despite understanding the film's intentions, I was still not engaged in any way. The presentation felt like being lectured to and I was just bored overall.

An emotionally powerful and aesthetically pleasing war film and one of the most underrated of all time.

The most artistic war movie I've ever seen. Malick manages to mix the insanity of war with beautiful shots, and a very touching and compelling acting by Caviezel. Watch it if you look for something totally different.

Patience is key when watching this movie. I thought it stunk the first time, but I am now away by beauty of the film and how few words of dialog can be so powerful. This is no "Saving Private Ryan," as it is based more on emotion.
