Hacksaw Ridge (2017)
Genre: Drama, History, War
Hacksaw Ridge is a about a WWII American Army Medic that did the extraordinary. The story and how the director Mel Gibson, decided to shoot this movie is done quite fantastically 🙂 . It is compelling, entertaining, action packed and heart wrenching from start to finish 😀 . The beginning is slower than people might expect from a war movie but I enjoyed it and thought it was needed 🙂 . It helps us understand Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) and makes you hooked before the battle. The minute the “war” begins the action starts quickly. It is very intense and constant. It was an edge of your seat experience and the shocks were plentiful 🙂 . I was gutted when some characters died and the “gore” content was good. It was an acceptable amount. It showed what it was like without being too much for an audience to watch. I loved the lines “Please Lord, Help Me Get One More” and the awesome acting of Andrew Garfield 😀 . He performed Desmond wonderfully and you felt for him through his struggle before the war. The group of soldiers he was with were also good and I was laughing with them at the “introduction” near the beginning 🙂 . The angry moments that you may get for our main character is pushed aside by the time the movie ends. This will leave you awestruck and it has become one of my favourite war movies of all time 😀 . This movie you have to watch so therefore, I definitely recommend! Enjoy 😀 !
I give this film 5 Stars out of 5!
