The Thin Red Line (1998)
Spoiler Alert !

Some of these pictures and descriptions may give away plot details that you might not want to know before watching the film.

As a gruop of Army soldiers are making their way up a hillside on Guadalcanal Island under heavy fire, the last thing they need to run into is a big snake,that might be dangerous, but that's what happens. Blink and you'll miss it around 49:40. Director Terrence Malick likes to insert seemingly random shots of wildlife in his movies, so maybe that's what this is, but it's possible it was used to crank up the fear level of the audience. The film was made in several locations, many of them in Queensland, Australia. The snake in the shot looks like one of the large pythons found in Australia, such as a Carpet Python.
