Stevecorp Don't listen to the negative reviews
Plustown A lot of perfectly good film show their cards early, establish a unique premise and let the audience explore a topic at a leisurely pace, without much in terms of surprise. this film is not one of those films.
AshUnow This is a small, humorous movie in some ways, but it has a huge heart. What a nice experience.
Aneesa Wardle The story, direction, characters, and writing/dialogue is akin to taking a tranquilizer shot to the neck, but everything else was so well done.
kitellis-98121 I watched this movie with literally no idea what it was about, who was in it, or who directed it. I just read the first few lines of a couple of Netflix reviews, not enough for spoilers, but enough to get the impression that this might be a pretty special movie.It was.I was captivated from beginning to end. I don't think I even blinked. This is truly an extraordinary piece of filmmaking, with every aspect of its technical production a work of art, and every performance solid, nuanced, and truthful.Some way into the bucolic, beautifully evocative first half, I began to notice that several of the actors were Australian, and wondered briefly if it might be an Aussie director at the helm. But then I was swept away again, and didn't think about anything else until midway through the second half, during one of the many prolonged (and exquisitely realised) battle scenes, when the thought popped in to my head that this was perhaps the best sound design I'd ever heard in a movie. And then I was swept away again.I had no idea that it was directed by Mel Gibson until the end credits. And to be honest, I'd almost forgotten that he even existed. I had long been a fan of his work, and was particularly enamoured of Braveheart, which I considered one of the greatest historical epics I'd ever seen.But after his much publicised bad behaviour, including drunk-driving (which I find inexcusable) and rampant anti-Semitism (which I find intolerable), plus his apparent decision to focus on pushing an aggressively right-wing Christian agenda on and off the screen, I decided to unofficially boycott all things Gibson-related - a decision echoed by Hollywood, where he was blacklisted for the best part of 10 years. And I promptly forgot all about him.So when I reached the end credits of my new favourite movie and discovered that Gibson was, once again, the master director responsible for my awe and elation, I had somewhat mixed feelings.Gibson is, inarguably and undoubtedly, one of the best directors in the business, and he's a pretty fine actor too. I just wish it was easier to like and admire him as a person. I know that much of my opinion is based on media reports and tabloid brainwashing, and God knows I despise all of those people far more than I dislike Mr Gibson. But he has admitted to saying the things he said, and doing the things he did. However, I note (upon researching his Wikipedia entry) that he has also done a lot of philanthropic stuff too, so I guess he's trying to balance things out. I think I'll follow Hollywood's lead and give him a second chance. He's certainly talented enough to deserve that much.And Hacksaw Ridge is really a masterpiece of filmmaking.
Jonathanraven1980 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.
cmwpdxcp Mel Gibson and his cohorts mine the same emotional vein that made Schindlers List and The Pianist so effective. Put your cynical cigar down for a couple of hours and soak it in. And the faith community finally gets a good movie!
paulclaassen Hats off to Mel Gibson for a brilliantly realistic film! Andrew Garfield is sensational in his role! Inspirational, fantastic, awesome!! The battle scenes are heart wrenching and emotional. Easily the best war film I've ever seen.
