Contains strong bloody violence, gory injury detail
Mel Gibson directs Andrew Garfield in the visceral true story of a war hero who didn't fire a single gunshot.
Scarred by childhood experiences with his alcoholic WWI veteran father (Hugo Weaving), devout Seventh Day Adventist Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) resolves never to touch a gun. This proves something of a challenge when he enlists in the army to fight in WWII. As a conscientious objector, Desmond insists on his right to serve as a medic. But he's bullied by his unsympathetic comrades, who consider him to be a coward. His greatest test comes during the notoriously bloody Battle of Okinawa.
Returning to the director's chair after a decade, Mel Gibson celebrates a hero in this intense, blood-soaked true-life tale of faith, courage and patriotism. Andrew Garfield is on outstanding form as the pacifist whose single-handed acts of bravery saved 75 lives.
Hacksaw Ridge was chosen by the American Film Institute as one of its top ten Movies of the Year and has received numerous awards and nominations including six Oscar nominations at the 89th Academy Awards and Golden Globe nominations for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor.
