Thought the same thing of Thin Red Line - wow, did I really pay for that movie as I walked out about 3/4ths the way through. Top 10 worst movies ever IMO, but I can see how someone would like it. My first issue was casting and went down from there. Nick Nolte as a captain wasn't sellable.I suppose that for most people it is too long and not enough percentage fighting for a war movie.
I remember watching it and at the end my reaction was "Wow, did I really see that". Of the WW2 war genre, I regard it as a masterpiece. The only other that I think that rivals it is the very different "Cross Of Iron".
Some of the Chinese historical epics, though most likely not well known in the West, are excellent like "Red Cliffs" and "A Battle Of Wits". Check out the Russian & multinational film "Mongol" (2007) as well, another magnificent film.
