Full Plot Details

Terrence Malick returns to Hollywood after a two-decade hiatus with this adaptation of the classic WWII novel by James Jones. The story follows the efforts of an army platoon to capture the Japanese-controlled island of Guadalcanal in the Pacific Ocean, which will have a major effect on the outcome of the war. The members of C-for-Charlie Company are all fighting for different reasons: Some to achieve glory, some to fight for democracy, and some simply to remain alive. They spend the quieter moments reflecting upon their existence, searching for meaning amid the senselessness of war.
Malick's reputation as one of cinema's most brilliant directors, based on his masterworks BADLANDS and DAYS OF HEAVEN, enabled him to pull together one of the largest ensemble all-star casts in Hollywood history. The result is a sprawling epic that carries itself like a poem read in a dream, a feeling that is greatly enhanced by John Toll's floating camerawork and Hans Zimmer's haunting score. Rather than concentrating solely on the violence and destruction of war, Malick uses the situation to address philosophical questions such as man versus nature, war versus peace, and good versus evil. THE THIN RED LINE proves that after a 20-year layoff, Malick hasn't lost a step.

A portrait of blood brothers in life and death, as they stop fighting for their country and start fighting to survive.

A realistic view of the hell that was the Pacific during the Second World War. Based on the novel by James Jones.

Movie Reviews

San Francisco Chronicle - 10.0/10 by Mick LaSalle Unique and courageous. It may be counted as one of the year's few steps forward in cinema.
The New York Times - 7.0/10 by Elvis Mitchell One more film that could have been helped by excising repetition and focusing performances, but it wanders almost randomly instead. The heart-piercing moments that punctuate its rambling are glimpses of what a tighter film might have been.
Dallas Observer - 7.0/10 by Andy Klein What Malick has fashioned here is less a conventional narrative than an impressionistic mosaic of our common, yet varied experience of life and death, as focused and clarified through the relentless lens of war.
Washington Post - 9.0/10 by Michael O'Sullivan The disturbing ideas it plants in the soil of the soul need time and darkness ? not light ? to germinate.
Entertainment Weekly - 6.7/10 by Owen Gleiberman An epic aestheticization of World War II, a movie at once bold and baffling, immediate and abstract.
Film.com - 8.0/10 by Norman Green The Thin Red Line attempts to soar much nearer to the sun than "Ryan." Its imagery aims at our souls. It wrestles with complexity, speaks to us in poetry, weaves multiple narrative strands into a tapestry, opens the festering wounds of war and gazes inside without blinking.
ReelViews - 7.5/10 by James Berardinelli The director is a poet of images.
TV Guide - 8.0/10 by Maitland McDonagh An intensely internalized portrait of external pandemonium, a slippery, insidiously haunting work of poetry rather than brilliantly realized pulp.
