Aficionados of the action-packed war film will savor the crackling, combat-centered approach of The Thin Red Line, an explosive melodramatization of the Yank assault on Guadalcanal in World War II.
Under the sincere but inadequate handling of Mr. Marton, best known for his chariot race in "Ben Hur," Ray Daley and Jack Warden are unable to explore the possibilities of these roles.
The combat sequences, particularly the final one, are first class, without war being glorified.
In adapting Jones's novel for the screen, Gordon neatly compacted whole scenes from the book, occasionally causing confusion. Motivations are often touched on superficially rather than probed into to show the psychology of men at war.
Compared to Malick's sumptuous art film, Marton's old Line looks awfully naive, and yet it goes a great deal further in grappling with the author's touchy subtext of soldierly love.
Much better than the pretentious Terrence Malick film of the same name. This original Thin Red Line is a perfect companion piece to Robert Aldrich's Attack.
The images of the dead in the swamp with dog tags in their mouth, was the most appalling sight in the film...
