Hacksaw Ridge (2016)

There is no doubt that actor/director Mel Gibson has said things in the past that are hard to agree with. Nevertheless, the now sixty year old Gibson  has one thing everyone can agree on: a golden eye for cinema as one of our best actor/directors alive today. 437 more words

Hacksaw Ridge

Mel Gibson returns with one of the most beautifully adapted acts of heroism I have ever seen. Hacksaw Ridge is possibly one of the best war films I have ever seen in my life and I was moved to tears by Andrew Garfield’s performance. 250 more words

Hacksaw Ridge, or, Sentimental Value 

Hacksaw Ridge, Mel Gibson’s latest directorial effort, is an exercise in sentimentality. The film adapts the early military career of World War II veteran Desmond Doss (played by Andrew Garfield), the first conscientious objector to be awarded the Medal of Honor and is split into two distinct sections: the events leading up to Doss’ deployment to the Pacific Theater and Doss’ participation in the taking of the Maeda Escarpment during the Battle of Okinawa. 603 more words
