The Thin Red Line

 (1998)

The Thin Red Line Blu-ray truly is a masterpiece with perfect scores all around making it one of the best Blu-ray's ever

As US soldiers land on the island of Guadalcanal, hoping to capture it from the Japanese, the job of venturing into the jungle falls to the 'C for Charlie' company and the troops are faced by both the enemy and struggles within their own camp. The war takes a heavy toll upon the young soldiers, leading them on a path of disillusion and possibly death.

For more about The Thin Red Line and the The Thin Red Line Blu-ray release, see the The Thin Red Line Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 5.0 out of 5.

Starring: Kirk Acevedo, Sean Penn, Penelope Allen, James Caviezel, Adrien Brody, John Cusack
Director: Terrence Malick

The Thin Red Line Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.34:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Terrence Malick's The Thin Red Line arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"Supervised and approved by director Terence Malick and cinematographer John Toll, this new high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit 4K Datacine from the original 35mm camera negative in 4K resolution. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS system and Pixel Farm's PFClean system.

Telecine supervisors: Terence Malick, John Toll, Lee Kline.
Telecine colorist: Bryan McMahan/Prime Focus, Los Angeles."

This is an exceptionally strong high-definition transfer. Fine object detail is terrific, clarity fantastic and contrast levels consistent throughout the entire film. The color-scheme is quite unbelievable - reds, greens, blues, yellows, browns and blacks are rich and exceptionally well saturated; indeed, some scenes have a near 3D look. Heavy edge-enhancement and macroblocking are not an issue of concern. I did not detect any traces of problematic filtering either. On the contrary, blown through a digital projector The Thin Red Line conveys spectacular depth and tightness. Even the darker scenes in the jungle look incredible. Lastly, I did not see any annoying flecks, scratches, stains or debris to report in this review. To sum it all up, Criterion's Blu-ray release of The Thin Red Line represents a remarkable upgrade, one that I am convinced will meet the quality expectations of even the most demanding amongst fans of the film. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Thin Red Line Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"The surround soundtrack was remastered at 24-bit from the original 6-track magnetic audio. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum were manually removed using Pro Tools HD."

In my opinion, the audio treatment is even more impressive than the video treatment. The English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is exceptionally potent, boasting a variety of different dynamics that will undoubtedly test the muscles of your audio system. The bass is thunderous, the rear channels very active and very effective (the memory flashbacks sound incredible), and the high-frequencies not overdone. The dialog is crisp, clean, stable, and very easy to follow. There are no balance issues to report with Hans Zimmer's beautiful music score either. Lastly, when you press the Play button on your remote, a short note on the main menu would announce "Director Terrence Malick recommends that The Thin Red Line be played loud." Do it.
