"Everything a lie. Everything you hear, everything you see. So much to spew out. They just keep coming, one after another. You're in a box. A moving box. They want you dead...or in their lie.

SummaryAdd a Summary
Wow, what a complete waste of talent and potential. The Thin Red Line is a beautiful looking movie that is so muddled in the artsy whims of Terrence Malick that it seems to have no real narrative or much semblance of a plot. The cast is huge and talented, but no amount of talent can fix a broken narrative. In fact the original script centered the movie around Jim Caviezel’s character, only to have Malick decide to change the main character to Adrien Brody’s character instead during editing, and then he didn’t tell anyone, including Caviezel, who showed up to the premier to find he was hardly in the film. I really wish Terrence Malick would either allow a real writer to shape the narrative or just become a cinematographer, because he is very talented at putting stunning images on the screen, but can not tell a good story to save his life. 3.5 Beards Out Of 5
