Storyline:

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 to ever earn the Congressional Medal of Honor.

    This movie was awesome , in every way .. another masterpiece from Mel Gibson !! I will never forget , how this film hit me ! I love a true story of a real American Hero .. And this is the best of the best ! I must admit that I cried for most of the last half of the movie , for various reasons ! The tender ,sweet love story , the ridicule that Doss endured, the raw brutality of war , the deep faith of a man who was not ashamed to stand for God and his country ! A brave young man who single handedly , without a weapon became the unforgettable Hero of Hacksaw Ridge !! Even though some of the graphic war scenes are hard to take , there were a few scenes that Gibson adds , that are absolutely ethereal ! I am looking forward to owning this fantastic DVD !!
    Ps . I would hope that every young person who dares to burn our flag , would see this film … And realize how precious it is ,to those who died for it !!

    Just a awesome and riveting movie.
    Great true story and grisly, brutal, intense action.
    I loved it and ranks among the best.
    More movies from the pacific should be made as these were the most brutal hand to hand fighting battles in WW2 and should not be forgotten.
    God Bless our Troops.
    Trump 2016!!!!

    One of the best movies I have seen. What a testimony of what a true Christian stands for. He never wavered his faith. Not only did he save lives but he touched lives greatly. Kudos to Mel Gibson. Great job.
