Ryan was OK but after I saw The Thin Red Line I thought that Ryan fell way short of what it could have been. Thin Red Line took a much deeper look into the mind of a soldier and the human psyche in general. I was truly blown away by that movie. Comparing the two is kind of like comparing Platoon with Apocalypse Now.
