8/10 / 10

Hacksaw Ridge is the latest film from the infamous Mel Gibson and it isas electrifying as one would come to expect. Telling the story ofDesmond Doss, an Army medic that refused to carry a weapon through thehell fire of battle in Okinawa at the height of World War II. Theuntold story of Doss is one that is of the finer war hero stories thatanyone could tell. Starring Andrew Garfield, Vince Vaughn, SamWorthington and Teresa Palmer, Hacksaw Ridge is a beautifully acted andviciously portrayed war film that will stick with you from the minutethe film starts until the second the end credits start. It will leaveyou clawing your seat, wiping away the sweat from your palms as we seeGarfield's Doss save as many lives as he possibly can while dodgingbullets and hand grenades. The film starts in the most somber of timesin American history, the second world war. Desmond Doss, the son of aPTSD-riddled alcoholic Army man (Hugo Weaving) who served in World WarI, is also as much as a devout Christian as he is a patriot, leadinghim to join the fight against the oppressive Japanese military. Doss isin love with a small town girl Dorothy Schutte (Teresa Palmer) who isscared that she'll never see Doss again, especially after thepersecution he is sure to face. When in training camp, Doss refuses totouch a gun and is actually court marshaled for his refusal. This leadsto a trial in which he is allowed by his superior officers to go intoOkinawa with no fire arm to protect him. Much of the film is steeped inrealism, something that Mel Gibson specializes in when it comes toviolence. While the story and plot line may sound very traditional, theway it is portrayed is a fresh burst of life into a tired genre such asthis. That, coupled with the amazing true-life story of Desmond Dossbeing portrayed on screen, makes Hacksaw Ridge a wild and brutal tripdown the path to Christianity and the power that faith can give a man.Gibson, a devout Catholic himself, would be the director to bring thisstory to life. His religious views seep through his very being,especially through his films and this film is no exception. The filmsettles in the idea that God is literally protecting Doss, not onlyphysically but spiritually as well. Doss is constantly testedthroughout the film, almost needing to take a life (which is theultimate sin to him) in many scenes. The fact that this man did notfire a single round and saved as many men as he did is astounding andthe film really does an amazing job at showing the harsh realities ofwar but also showing the good that can be brought out in a man throughhis faith. The film itself, is one of Gibson's less preachy works whichmakes it more accessible. Even if faith-based films are not your thing,you can appreciate the craft that went into making this film. HacksawRidge displays war as atrocious as it truly is. There is blood, thereis gore and there are a couple wounds that will cut even the strongestof men down. This is an extremely violent film but it is extremelyviolent in the sense that there is enough going on around us to nevermake us truly settle in the violence which would take away a lot of theimpact that Gibson is trying to portray. The film is paced very nicelyand does feel more like a traditional war film without it really beingthe traditional World War II film. The filmmaking is traditional butthe story is unique and is definitely the driving force to run out andsee this film. The performance from Andrew Garfield is amazing. Hesheds any sort of preconceived notion and really embodies the roll ofDoss quite well. He is far from a revelation but he is on the righttrack in delivering a very fine performance. The screenplay is tightand taught. Like I said, there are scenes that are heart pounding inthis film. Personally, I found myself holding my breath during some ofthe action sequences. It was THAT intense at parts. While I do havegreat things to say about this film, I will say, I was a bitdisappointed in the performances all around. While I thought Garfielddid an amazing job carrying a film that was not Spider-Man, I wish hewas a little better. I felt the same way with the rest of the cast. Themelodrama that is portrayed very early on in the film is something thatdoes begin to corrode the realist efforts of everything else. However,once the action starts, so does the really great acting on everyone'sparts. Gibson is an actor that revels in the moments of pure chaos andhe expects the same thing from his actors. It makes for some intensescenes that are elevated by the pure realism that the actors portray.You actually feel as though you are watching these people go to war. Itis a testament to Mel Gibson as a director. He really knows how to putyou in the moment and Hacksaw Ridge just solidifies his talent.Overall, I felt Hacksaw Ridge was an extremely brutal and visceral warfilm that brings up questions of warfare, humanity and religion whiledisplaying Gibson's excellent eye for technical accuracy and assaultingimagery. Say what you will about Gibson as a person but as a directorhe is sharp, gritty and a master at what he does.

10/10 / 10

War films can be a bit hard to sit through, with its graphic depictionsof key battles in history, strong themes of power, brotherhood and theeffect it has among the world but with Mel Gibson's latest war drama'Hacksaw Ridge' it manages to be something more that we can grasp it.

The true life story of Desmond Doss is finally brought to the bigscreen, Doss was a US Army medic who served during WWII, but comingfrom a family with a strong religious beliefs and a father thatstruggled with the aftermath of WWI (a veteran himself) it lead him tobe a Seventh-day Adventist, refusing to bare a firearm and the use ofviolence against another. His personal choice would affect hiscountry's army and persuaded a court hearing to charge Doss for hispersonal beliefs and objection to bare arms but despite this, he isgiven the chance though to fight alongside his 'brothers' in the Battleof Okinawa, a battle which the American forces fought against theinvading Japanese in an intense and brutal battle. It is here in thiskey battle that Doss was recognised as a true hero for his country, ashe managed to rescue the lives of 75 soldiers wounded in battle.

Gibson returns to the director's chair to helm this true story, givinghis touch of humanistic quality, anti-war themes and brutality to thehorrors of war to much great detail. The direction is pretty much onpoint throughout and never goes dull or loses itself during the 2 ½running time. The first half of the film is about character and whatestablishes Doss to become a legend that he is known for, while the 2ndhalf of the film focuses on his role during the Battle of Okinawa andthe brutal battle itself. The violence here is given so much detail,not holding back on the horrors of war and the devastating effect itcarried on both sides. The production design, sound mixing, editing andscale of the battle is as intense, horrifying and respectful to thedetails and real life experiences to what we've read in history books,but it is yet filmed with beautiful and yet brutal detailing thatechoes much to Saving Private Ryan's D-Day battle sequence. The 2ndhalf of the film is much darker than the first half and people willneed a strong stomach to handle the graphic depictions of violence anddeaths we see throughout, but it does get emotional at times and in thelast few minutes of the film, though overall the film is emotional withDoss's back-story, his personal lifestyle and the brotherhood that Dossand his army experience and share on the battlefield.

In terms of acting, the cast as a whole is incredible with AndrewGarfield, Hugo Weaving, Vince Vaughn, Luke Bracey and Teresa Palmergiving the best key performances of the film. Garfield has come a longway to prove himself as a worthy actor, breaking away from his wellknown role as Spider-Man prior to HR. To describe his role as Doss, hegives a quality that defines him as a simple man with values in hislife while facing a few struggles that form his belief of not bearingviolence or firearms. Garfield must have given much study andpreparation for the role, as his character's journey from a wise simpleman to a hero of his army is given so much heart, emotion and braveryto make the journey of Doss so believable.

Overall, Hacksaw Ridge is a film that will leave audiences in state ofemotion that describes the horrors of war, the bravery of Doss and hisarmy and a sense of thankfulness to our past ancestors who had lived ina time to fight for freedom and peace when the world was divided. Anincredible film that will indeed earn its amount for Oscar nominationsand wins in 2017 (possibly for Best Picture, Director, Actor,Production Design, Music Score, Sound Mixing & Editing and Script)alongside other film awards. A must see film if you have studiedhistory at school, have an interest in history or if you love a solidwar film that's true to its core. A masterpiece that will not beforgotten so quickly or never will, we both highly recommend it.

5/5 Autistic Reviewers

8/10 / 10

I was lucky enough to sneak into a cast & crew screening at the NewtownDendy cinema. I thought 10.30AM on a Sunday was too early for a MelGibson movie, that I might be in for something along the lines of theheavy-handedness of THE PASSION OF THE Christ, and the adrenalinepumped brilliance of APOCALYPTO.

I was proved wrong because after the first thirty minutes I wasn't sureif this was a Mel Gibson film when I was placed into a comfort zone,with its melodrama set in a small Virginia town during the Forties, aschmaltzy romance, and the cliché violent drunken father who survived abrutal war. The performances were maybe a little let down by the clumsydialogue, but all directed safely with a natural sense of storytelling.

By the 2nd act, I was put on high alert in the military training withour protagonist, Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield who I at first felt waswrongly cast, but he really came through in the end). It was here whenthe true purpose of the story began to evolve, that of Doss' moral andinternal conflict with using a gun! What he had to endure and stand-upfor was a courage I greatly admired. It was also in this phase of thefilm that the dialogue and characters began to shine. Maybe it was theintroduction of Vince Vaughn's character. We all know how Vaughn isnotorious in ad-libbing, and it seemed to help because the other actorsbounced off it well.

Now the story had me in their pocket because by the 3rd act I was withour protagonist and his platoon when they got to the battlefieldgraveyard of Hacksaw Ridge. You thought the horrific situation in WEWERE SOLDIERS was brutal, well this was captured so vividly that youfelt you were there. It was almost on par with the brilliance of GAMEOF THRONES; BATTLE OF THE BASTARDS.

Now I felt I was in a Mel Gibson film. As with Braveheart, the battlescenes in Hacksaw Ridge didn't hold back. Maybe a notch better becauseof today's CGI (and I didn't even notice the effects!). The scenes wereunflinching, haunting and in your face. Possibly showing you the truehorror of war. Definitely not for the squeamish.

The religious aspect of the film was relevant to the story, so as anon-believer I thought it was an integral part of the protagonist andhad to be told, so it didn't bother me as much.

Overall the technical aspect of the film was brilliant, but then againI didn't really notice it because I was too distracted by the story andthe characters, and when that occurs, I know the film has succeeded.

9/10 / 10

As someone from Sydney, Australia I was proud at the way this wasfilmed. Using the Hollywood model, there would have been lots of setsbut using actual buildings allowed a lot of warmth to come through inthe natural light. Gibson is a fine director, I was impressed with hisframing, he shoots very closely for the acting stuff (more head andshoulder) which is quite interesting on the eye. Using more naturallight it is quite beautiful. I suspect Gibson will not yet have beenforgiven for his personal life to get the recognition he deserves.

This movie could have been another Forest Gump, it could overlysentimental, instead, carries an appropriate amount of sincerity. Thebackstory is a major part of the movie. Doss is portrayed as uneasywith the girls who fell for the first pretty thing he saw. This couldhave been so Forest Gump-like but strikes a nice chord.

The cast was excellent. Hugo Weaving was perfection. He carried thefirst half of the movie as the battle-fatigued (PTSD) WW1 vet father.Some may complain that the women are poorly portrayed as are theJapanese, who are largely like ants coming from their mound or canonfodder.

As brutal as the second half is, I am sure it could not convey howtruly gallant Doss was or brutal it was in reality.

9/10 / 10

Just watched this movie at the pre-screening and feel like I owe it tothe creators to write a review. Having read other reviews, it is hardto stay original, so first are few thoughts that I shared with theothers. Great to have Mel Gibson back in the directors seat. I will besurprised if we don't see this film in a few Oscars categories. Now,few thoughts of my own. The movie depicts brutality of war in gorydetails, so much so, that I had to turn my eyes away from screen coupleof times. However, I do understand why this was important to the storyline. It was done so that we could truly appreciate Doss's act ofbravery, feel it like we were there and witnessed it firsthand -nothing was left out. The story grabs you from beginning and does notlet you off until very end - after the movie I turned back and half ofthe girls in the theater were still wiping tears. Bottom line - instantclassic that will find it's place on the shelf next to the likes ofSaving Private Ryan and Band of Brothers.
