"Hauntingly Sad,amazing story"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

A real heart breaker, I don't really like war movies for this reason, but well worth the watch, a real show of strength, determination and belief!!

"hillbilly meets GI Joe"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Initially it takes a bit to get use to the way Doss speaks. Basically because of his beliefs not to bear arms he is bullied and ridiculed by his fellow soldiers. He is emotionally raw from trying to stick to his beliefs but also do the honorable thing and fight for his country. During the bloody attacks, while they attempt to take-over Hacksaw Ridge, he finds a way to serve his country and stick to those beliefs.

This is based in WWII so the action we are used to in the movies these days makes this movie look a little lackluster but compelling nonetheless. The eager young men turn into frightened targets shuffling towards the Japanese for slaughter … dirty and confused scenes of blood, pain and death.

Thought provoking as it brings up some interesting questions about what they fought for, showing his Father and his issues from fighting a previous war.

Description

Hacksaw Ridge

Directed by Mel Gibson and with 9 AACTA award wins and 3 Golden Globe nominations, this Australian production is an extraordinary true story. Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun.

Doss 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 rescued the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was injured by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector awarded the Congressional Medal of Honour, which is the highest military honour in the US, awarded for personal acts of valour above and beyond the call of duty.

Reviews

Hacksaw Ridge is being touted as Gibson's comeback. Is it also an atonement? What's clear is that Gibson has made a film about family, faith, love and forgiveness all put to the test in an arena of violent conflict – a movie you don't want to miss.” – Rolling Stone

“It immerses you in the violent madness of war – and, at the same time, it roots its drama in the impeccable valor of a man who, by his own grace, refuses to have anything to do with war.” – Variety

“A movie that reaches out toward the idea of goodness in the world. And whether you or I like Gibson as a person or not, it's no one's place to deny his reach.” – TIME Magazine
