War is brutal. War has been brutal. War and killing is wrong. But there are soldiers who fought for their principles as well as helping the war effort. In Hacksaw Ridge, one such man is being immortalised on the big screen.
Hacksaw Ridge revolves around the true story of Desmon Doss who, during one of the bloodiest battles of WWII wound up saving the lives of 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. As the only soldier to tackle the front line without a weapon, Doss believed that killing was wrong and braved fire whilst tending to the wounded as a medic.
Andrew Garfield is a stunning actor and the film is directed by Mel Gibson who is a surprisingly gifted filmmaker. Bloody, brutal, and powerful, Hacksaw Ridge could be an outstanding film.
