HACKSAW RIDGE: 2016 Movie Review by 24KMovies


Director: Mel Gibson

Writers: Robert Schenkkan , Andrew Knight

Stars:  Andrew Garfield, Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey

Hacksaw Ridge is based on the true story of Desmond Doss a pacifist who enlisted in World War II but refused to carry a weapon or kill, preferring to save wounded men by take care of them and providing needful medical assistance. The movie is full of war violence and graphical effects of which makes it breathtaking. In the war scene bullets pierce flesh in slow motion, explosions toss men in the air, bleeding leg and arm stumps are shown, throats are slashed, soldiers stab each other with sword to death, and men are graphically gutted, disembodied, and heads are cut from the body with all the veins and ligaments left hanging. The hero Doss marries the nurse and kisses her. There are many intense love making scenes including the weeding night one. Doss’s father is shown as an alcoholic and abusive man. The movie includes some adultery stuff like smoking of cigarette, drinking of alcohol, use of abusive language and terms showing racisim. Altogether the movie teaches you to trust your instincts, lesson of courage and integrity. Still it is advisable for adults not to take children below 16 years along as they won’t be able to handle the harsh visuals.
