If you don't like this, we can't be friends.
The film makes a home in your brain and the only cure is to see it again.
It is an exhilarating, distressing, funny and profound film, with one of the more memorable film scores in years,
This is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a very long time. You have to go and see this on the big screen.
Of course I support the idea of the Bible, some quotes and the screenplay was awesome. And here is my rating. But I just want to support too the idea of the rope... The Japanese could simply cut it or wait for the American to climb and then kill them... And of course you need more ropes for an army like this... Thank you.
This movie was among one of the most emotionally charged films I've seen in a long time. I encourage everyone to watch this. It's both sad and heart warming at the same time. Such bravery in the face of danger. Such courage in the line of duty and under fire.This film is incredible in every respect, from the excellent acting, to the cinematic experience of brutal reality, to the moral character exhibited, to the visual aesthetic, and to the auditory experiences.This film will prove to you that good movies do exist in modern times, despite the overwhelming number of movies that would suggest something to the contrary.You'll want some kleenex to wipe away your eyes, because anyone with half a heart will find this so emotionally moving that tears are bound to drip from them.This movie starts out slow, builds up the character, and goes on to prove everyone wrong about their suppositions of what kind of man Desmond Doss was. He proves himself a hero, in spite of his refusal to bear arms.Watch this, and honor those who have passed. War is not a pleasant experience. Perhaps with films such as these we can be reminded of all that has been sacrificed by those before us, and learn, and strive for a better tomorrow.
Mel Gibson never fails to disappoint on and off the screen. He has such vision and it shows and pays off on film. I have never heard of Doss's story before this movie and I think that is such a shame because like they said in the movie, what he did was "nothing short from a miracle." If you have never seen this movie than I recommend it 1000%!
10 years after the film '' Apocalypto '', Mel Gisbon comes back with a new master-piece entitled '' Hacksaw Ridge '', which is inspired by a true story of Desmond Doss. The young male-nurse wanted to go to fight on Okinawa's battlefield but he refused to commit the ultimate sin : to take the life of somebody. During the first hour of the film, we focus on Desmond Doss's character, particulary his relation with his father, the fact he wants to engage for the war, his relationship and his life on Fort Jackson. Then comes the second part of the film, we assist to incredible and more realistic scenes of the history of cinema. This humanistic film is caracterized by the duality between the innocence and the faith of Desmond Doss. This duality is present from the beginning of the film, with and carefree Desmod and some clues which tell us that the forehead call is here. The cast is excellent and the actors's game is irreproachable : Teresa Palmer, Vincent Vaughn, Saw Worthington, Hugo Weaving. The character of Desmond is represented as a salvator heroes by his actions and convictions, but also his faith for humanity. The negative point of this movie is that the romance is too present for a film focalized on war. This movie is one of the best war movie of american cinema.
