A very good movie

When this movie was released, there was a pretty good buzz about it so I thought I should check it out. Back in those days, I didn't know who was Terrence Malick and haven't heard about the legends surrounding him but I sure loved this movie. I must have been 18-19 years old and I had never seen something like that, this mix of metaphysics and war and I was quite blown-away. Fast-forward 15 years ... read more

A soundtrack that compliments well with its philosophical messages, this Malick film is a work of art. Every shot was like a painting in motion, and I loved how involved nature is in this war.

"6.5. DVD Uusintakatselu, puolikas lisää. Pysäyttävä, taistelujaksoissaan helvetillisen intensiivinen ja realistinen, varmasti ainutlaatuinen sotaelokuva. Pelko näkyy jokaisessa hahmossa (joista yksikään ei kivasti nouse toistaan tärkeämmäksi) ja useammallakin eri tavalla. Sankareita tai yleviä tavoitteita ei tunneta. Sanomattakin selvää tässä vaiheessa, että myös visuaalisesti tyrmäävä."

"War sequence against the Japanese from night to day. Hans Zimmer. I am left wandering for hours, speechless, after watching this film. All I could think of is asking myself to see it again and again. The scenes in The Thin Red Line are chilling. Hans Zimmer's score is haunting and kept me immersed with John Toll's cinematography. My experience is left with thanking Terrence Malick as a true philosophically-charged filmmaker. I am left almost in tears when I saw the captain of the company weep "

30 From 98: My Favorite Films From 1998 (30 movies items)

"After twenty years of silence, Terrence Malick is back behind the camera. His first full feature film since the critically acclaimed (although, at the time of the movie's release it had more mixed reactions) Days Of Heaven. A fictionalized version of World War Two's Battle of Mount Austen. the plot follows the soldiers involved in the campaign, not just physically, but also mentally as throughout the pacing of the story, the script is interjected with the thoughts of various combatants.
