Hacksaw Ridge

Action & Adventure • R • Directed by: Mel Gibson • 139 minutes

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.

My dad was in WWII in Okinawa
★★★★★
I watched this movie and was shocked. It is a GREAT movie...but what really shocked me was what people went through during the war. My dad was in WWII in Okinawa...I can't even imagine what he went through...he has nightmares till at 92 years old...and now I have a really good idea why. A lot of people gave up their lives so you have the freedom we now enjoy...God love them...they obviously been through hell during the war. — Fly Fishing for Bonefish !

Very good
★★★★★
Real inspirational movie — Robinandre12

Terrible Christian movie
★★★★★
IF you are a devout Christian, and blieve in the will of God to give you strength in adversity, you may well love this film. If you're not so much into that sort of thing, you may not be so into this film. — Brian15398

Good, but left something to be desired.
★★★★
It was an okay movie with awesome, realistic battle scenes, but overall it was just an okay movie. — WickedChicklette

Best movie in 2017
★★★★★
Movie was awesome better than all the other terrible movies. — Xxx.RD.xxX

Gore and religion
★★★★
Started out well but didn't develop any of the characters enough for you to care too much about them having their guts blown all over the screen. What really turned me off personally was the dramatic turn to this being a religious movie about the Christian God's will and that somehow he performed this miracle that the main character didn't also get blown up. — Alex64225689942158994

Fantastic
★★★★★
Great movie — JoJo's Spfld Circus

the most Mel Gibson move ever
★★★★★
If you didn't know Mel Gibson directed this movie, you would by the time you finished watching. - checked off every war movie cliche - too much violence that did not add value to the plot; blood and guts just for the sake of it - heavy racist overtones -good acting I guess - 10/10 Mel Gibson propaganda The whole film could have been 10 minutes — whatever42069

Poor attention to detail
★★★★★
Should of hired someone who had served in uniform for the making of the film. Hard to get into the movie when vince vaughn salutes like a 6 year old boy scout and dresses like one as well. — Kbhky9

Very Good Movie
★★★★
A touching real story, very well directed and Andrew Garfield is excellent! — MCOHI

Unbelieveable
★★★★★
Once again I never know what's wrong with these rotten tomato people this will tug at your soul in a very strong way and if this isn't a 100% rating then it's impossible to imagine what is...great movie... — Vinnyloves69

Did You See His Vietnam Movie?
★★★★
If you saw his Vietnam then you've seen this one. Just a bunch of guys walking into bullets. No soldier is that dumb and/or brave. The sergeant calls in artillary then sends men to where the artillery is going to hit. Not smart. Its laughably bad when the coordinates the sergent gives for the artillary strike are simply "Straight ahead". LOL. Youtube has way better war video. — Mission Accomplished

Speechless
★★★★★
Such a powerful and inspirational movie! It really makes you rethink your life and do better. Absolutely loved it!!!!! — dacloud01

BEST war movie!
★★★★★
Saw this at a special premier then bought it when it came out and watched it again! Excellent Movie! — Afwife98

Oh man on the ridge of excellence.
★★★★★
I'm going to say Andrew Garfield truly redeemed himself from Amazing Spider-Man 2! A soldier who didn't use Guns in combat made for one of the stellar performances since Tom Hanks in Saving Private Ryan! Cut through and watch it. — 16 HORSES

Hacksaw Ridge is another masterpiece delivered by Mel Gibson
★★★★★
Terrific movie and history lesson. — p4 by Sean Jerome

The price of one man's covictions... in war.
★★★★★
Excellent movie, much better than I have expected. It depicts how conviction and faith are related for this kind of men in the battle field, made me wanted to be at that level in my faith, even I am not sure to be honest if one life will be enough. Nicely done Mr. Mel Gibson. — Hevin Jaimes

Incredible
★★★★★
I appreciate war stories...this one is no acception despite the fact that Doss carries no weapon. I cried no less than 5 times. Great directing by Mel Gibson, and God Bless Desmond Doss for his bravery and love of humanity. He shows heart and compassion in the darkest of circumstances. — Stewy1083

By far the best movie ever

This is a great movie, that definitely is proof not to judge a book by its cover..Such a great lesson about humanity, people really seeing others for who they are and realizing people are different for different reasons, and God always make certain people destined for greatness... Wonderful movie about putting others above yourself. Well driven and wonderful movie again by Mel Gibson — Trump girl

A true hero this man was! Having watched the trailer I knew this movie would be great, but it was better than I could have imagined. It touched my heart very deeply. — MrsDurand

Everything was great except for....
★★★★★
Vince Vaughn. I like Vince Vaughn but not in this type of role. He just isn't a tough guy. Jon Favreagh would of been a better choice for that role. The casting person should be reprimanded as Vince destroyed the magic of the film. — Nutshelldj

We need more movies like this one
★★★★★
Hacksaw Ridge appeals to many different types of people. Allows those who have a stronger sense of purpose in life enjoy a film that normally would only focus on the gruesome reality of war. This true story allows you to take a look into other perspectives on war, as well as the ability for individuals to overcome challenges in a historically "macho" environment. Andrew Garfield is tremendous and incredibly believable in his role. The movie is historically factual, and does a tremendous job of depicting the horrors of war without relying on gore and blood to sell a battle. The presentation is very well throughout and the ending is glorious. Extremely happy with my rental. — JetsFan7789
