Hacksaw Ridge (Eddie's Review)


Eddie here. Tonight I'm reviewing Hacksaw Ridge, directed by Mel Gibson, starring Andrew Garfield, Teresa Palmer, Vince Vaughn, and Sam Worthington. Hacksaw Ridge is a true story based on a soldier named Desmond T. Doss (Andrew Garfield) who saved 75 men lives in Okinawa, Japan without firing a single shot, being the only soldier in WW2 history to be behind enemy lines without a weapon. Desmond T. Doss was also the first conscientious objector to win the Congressional Medal of Honor. This was a fantastic film. Mel Gibson is really up there as a director. All of his directed films are absolutely phenomenal. The cinematography was great as it resembles the look of Saving Private Ryan and it was extremely brutal, which it should be since war is brutal. The performances from all of the cast members were excellent. Andrew Garfield gave his best performance ever in his career so far. I truly hope he gets an Oscar nomination for this outstanding piece of work. For once, I truly got into the romance part in a war film. Usually, we get war films that try to mix a love story with war but usually the love story overshadows the war part to where the film falls flat like Pearl Harbor. I also enjoyed some of the comedy they added in the boot camp scene. Vince Vaughn had me dying of laughter. This is arguably one of the best films of 2016 and I highly recommended it. It has little to no flaws. I'm going to give it a 9.5/10. Also check out Justin's review of the film on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6J8Hk4dapg
