Plot Outline:

Army Medic Desmond T. Doss served during WWII, notably in the battle of Okinawa. Heroically, he saved the lives of at least 75 men (with many there saying he saved many more) but, despite being in the army, he also refused to kill any of the enemy. His deeds were recognized and he was awarded the Medal of Honor, becoming the first Conscientious Objector in history to have that distinction. -- Chris Kavan

not much to say. great acting unique story , really great brutal action scenes. this is how you make a movie and do it on a modest budget. the big expensive and bad moves need to take note, mel gibson is a great director. a expert at action scenes and conveying a story. nice to see something good for a change.

Easily the best movie of the year so far, "Hacksaw Ridge" is another masterpiece from brilliant director Mel Gibson. Featuring excellent performances across the board, top notch technical credits, a moving incredible true story and some of the most ferocious battle sequences ever committed to film, "Hacksaw Ridge" takes it place with "Saving Private Ryan" as one of the best war movies ever made.

Hacksaw Ridge - Movie Review

LIFF30 2016 #3

"In peace, sons bury their fathers. In war, fathers bury their sons".

Hacksaw Ridge may seem like another Oscar bait "true story" biopic that we get every couple of years. The trailers didn't help at all, as it made the film look corny and very award bait. But guys trust on this, it's nothing like that. There's nothing glamorous about this. When it was over, I left was speechless. This is such a great movie.

Say what you want about Mel Gibson controversial past and behavior, but I think we must judge the art, not the artist. This guy is an excellent director and a great actor. And you have no idea how glad I am seeing Mel back, as he is the most talented man in Hollywood right now. The most impressive part of Mel's directing in this movie (besid...

If you are still not convinced...

Mel Gibson's new movie Hacksaw Ridge is fantastic. Go see it. It will change your life.

The movie Hacksaw Ridge follows the incredible true story of Desmond Doss, who by the way, I had never heard of before, but I'm so happy that this spectacular piece of film informed me in the best way possible. Doss refuses to use firearms when he enlists in the army for WWII. This creates tension within the group of soldiers and Doss, and might I add, some of the best tension I have ever seen on screen.

The performances in this movie are spot on by every actor and actress, and the camera movement is incredible. Everything looks and seems real! I would say that this film is like Full Metal Jacket, Forrest Gump, and Saving Private Ryan combined.

The theme to this film is extremely powerful for ...

A new modern classic like Braveheart!

Mel Gibson returns with a vengeance by directing one of the year's best films and perhaps the single best war film since Saving Private Ryan. With a script that has its cake and eats it with relish, Gibson focuses on a pacifist (Garfield) that joins the army as a medic and ends up rescuing 75 of his fellow soldiers at the harrowing battle of Okinawa.

The production is impressive for what was reportedly a modest budget of $40million (gotta love those Australian tax breaks). Mel Gibson for all his faults is a master-class directer and his direction of the battle sequences consists of what could be the best shot battle sequences in a WW2 movie in decades. They're extremely graphic and violent (not for the faint of heart AT ALL). The carnage and bloodshed could just top what Spielberg acc...
