Description

HACKSAW RIDGE is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss [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 Honor.

    Desmond Dodd has the heart of God. I've never watched a war movie and for good reason, but my mother and I decided to watch this one. We were not disappointed with the acting or the film; in fact, we were saddened by all of the deaths. But we were also elated by the sheer love and kindness that Desmond Doss expressed. Buy this movie, rent it, just view it! You will be changed forever!!!!

    Watched this movie last evening. Very good movie, but seemed to lack a real deep emotion. Not a fan of so many well-known Hollywood actors playing roles within films like this. It's hard to see Vince Vaughn as a serious drill-sergeant type. Still, very well told and focused more on the role that Desmond Doss played which is every bit worth telling. Kudos to Mel Gibson who clearly has the ability, when he's not going crazy, to put together a well told film.
  • Excellent, moving, compelling

    Incredibly moving and entertaining film about a real-life American hero. If you get through this with a dry eye then you don't have a soul.
  • Fantastic

    Highly recommend. It shows the power of spirit over matter. The power of faith, staying true to what you believe in, the making of a hero. Amazing movie. Great cast. Andrew Garfield is so good in it, can't imagine better acting. Vince Vaughn brings a little comedy to it. DO NOT MISS IT!
