Mel Gibson directed this biopic about World War II Army medic Desmond Doss (played here by Andrew Garfield). A conscientious objector who refused to take a life or even carry a weapon, Doss was eventually awarded the Medal of Honor for saving the lives of 75 soldiers on the battlefields of Okinawa. Hugo Weaving, Teresa Palmer, Vince Vaughn, and Sam Worthington co-star in Gibson's return to the director's seat.~Daniel Gelb
Hacksaw Ridge is a EXCELLENT movie!
The soilder, Pfc. Desmond T. Doss (Andrew Garfield), was a fierce, good and brave human.
This movie is a classic. It shows how ugly war is but more importantly, how the USA faught very hard to to help preserve a society and protect the values of a country. A reality was shown from so many angles. Bullying, fear, love, strength, loyalty, pain, ostracizing and never letting go of core beliefs, convictions. All led to respect.
Supporting cast, AWSOME!
This movie is a MUST MUST see! Again, a classic!
I had never seen this movie but bought it because it was a great deal. 4k movie for 9.99 that's a great value. This movie has a touch of a love story and starts a little slow, but oh man the action is crazy. The action scenes are incredibly intense and very graphic. You feel like you are there and is just nuts..i really enjoyed watching this movie. I watched this on my 85" Sony 4k tv.
The Blu-ray provided an excellent picture and sound. The movie is based on the true story of a World War II American Hero who won the Medal of Honor for his actions during the Battle of Okinawa. What really is different is the hero was a conscientious objector who would not kill and would not carry a weapon. He was a medic who risked his life numerous times and saved many American lives during the battle.
I am glad this movie was made because I served in the Marine Corps during the Vietnam War and witnessed Navy Corpsmen risk their lives to save Marines. They were very brave men and I felt they never truly got credit for their actions. Back to the movie, my wife and I watched it
together and we both enjoyed the movie. My wife is a registered nurse and she is used to seeing blood, but if you cannot stand bloody battle scenes then this movie is not for you. The acting in this movie was outstanding and you become emotionally involved with several characters. A great movie by Mel Gibson. Watch it!
