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

I loved this movie from the beginning through the end. It was really entertaining, intense and emotional. Mel Gibson was astonishing as a director. He directed this movie so we’ll it felt real. And this Steelbook is probably my top 5 favorite Steelbook I’ve owned. Lionsgate knocked it out of the park with this Steelbook and it’s worth getting it and especially seeing this movie on 4K. The inside artwork is amazing and the disk artwork is pretty cool ngl.
Reference in Germans of picture and sound. My whole house shook when the US climbed up Hacksaw Ridge…you have to watch the movie, otherwise is hard to write about a review about this movie. It’s a Masterpiece!
The Steelbook is great and the slipcover gives it the rest!
Lionsgate remains its steak of amazing 4K steelbooks with this stunning release. The slipcover and incredible artwork complement each other entirely. This is one of my favorite war films in recent memory and this steelbook is a treasured addition to any collection. The movie on its own is amazing and heartfelt. This film is definitely one the best war movie since Saving Private Ryan.
