Description

HACKSAW RIDGE is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss (BAFTA winner and Golden Globe nominee Andrew Garfield) who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector awarded the Congressional Medal of Honour.

    Everyone to their own, but I thought that the story, atmosphere and of course the acting was first rate. I'd love to have met the main protagonist in person.
  • A good story ruined

    Potentially interesting topic, but ruined by dull, jingoistic and predictable screenplay. A better director could have made a good film out of this great story. What a shame.
  • Brilliant film!

    I'm generally quite grump about most things, ok all things. So I hope you will appreciate it when I say that this film is simply brilliant. The story, the acting, directing, cinematography, score. Well worth watching. My only criticism is Gibson's usual one-sided view on a particualr situation (see Braveheart for example). Otherwise go watch it. Superb!
  • Outstanding!
