Description

The true story of Pfc. Desmond T. Doss (Andrew Garfield), who won the Congressional Medal of Honor despite refusing to bear arms during WWII on religious grounds. Doss was drafted and ostracized by fellow soldiers for his pacifist stance but went on to earn respect and adoration for his bravery, selflessness and compassion after he risked his life -- without firing a shot -- to save 75 men in the Battle of Okinawa.

Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"One might call this a refinement of Gibson’s fixations as a director: battles more terrifying than BRAVEHEART and a portrayal of sacrificial lambhood that’s more compelling than THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST..."
Ignatiy Vishnevetsky (3 Nov 2016, )
Boston Globe
"Here Gibson is at his best, depicting the battle of Okinawa with an initial assault on the title objective that evokes SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, SEVEN SAMURAI, and STARSHIP TROOPERS....It is epic in scope, intimate in detail, and otherworldly in its dimensions..."
Peter Keough (3 Nov 2016, )
Empire
4 stars out of 5 - "It’s a moving recreation of a khaki-clad superhero at work, an old-fashioned story that Gibson mainlines with bleeding-edge craft and technique -- he’s lost little of his knack for spectacle."
(23 Jan 2017, )
Entertainment Weekly
"Comparisons are already being made to AMERICAN SNIPER, another treatise on the trade-off between a war hero’s glory and what it costs his soul." -- Grade: B
Leah Greenblatt (3 Nov 2016, )
Hollywood Reporter
"[Gibson] once again proves himself a muscular storyteller who knows exactly how to raise a pulse, heighten emotion and build intensity to explosive peaks."
David Rooney (4 Sep 2017, )
Los Angeles Times
"Steeped in blood, guts and Christian iconography, HACKSAW RIDGE is a tribute to one man’s courageous adherence to his deepest beliefs, made by a director whose commitment to his aesthetic principles is no less unswerving."
Justin Chang (1 Nov 2016, )
New York Times
"[A] bluntly effective faith-and-flag war drama, the true story of a remarkable hero with a knot of moral tension at its center."
A. O. Scott (1 Nov 2016, )
Rolling Stone
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "It's the scenes of battle that send Hacksaw Ridge roaring to life, with Gibson and cinematographer Simon Duggan refusing to flinch from the harsh realities of ground warfare."
Peter Travers (1 Nov 2016, )
The Atlantic
"[I]t’s undeniably effective, a movie about the power of religious conviction that batters viewers with depictions of horrific violence and chaos."
David Sims (2 Nov 2016, )
The Guardian
3 stars out of 5 -- "Mel Gibson’s robust directorial technique brings an undeniable punch to the combat scenes of this Oscar-nominated second world war drama."
Wendy Ide (29 Jan 2017, )
Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "[B]etween its religious themes and its trial by fire of a man’s faith, it burns with a bullish conviction that lends punch to its assaults on restraint."
Kevin Harley (21 Jan 2017, )
Washington Post
"HACKSAW RIDGE is a war film of the old school, celebrating nobility, courage and self-sacrifice in the tradition of THE BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI, PATHS OF GLORY and SAVING PRIVATE RYAN."
(3 Nov 2016, )
