Incredible movie! Saw it with my father and we both thought it was the best war movie we have ever seen. True story, so well done, such an incredible man
0 stars. terrible propaganda. go to the library and look up all the bombing victims in the last few years all over the world...see if you can stomach it. what is the purpose of this movie to be so manipulative? heading toward the apocalypse maybe? is that what we need in the world right now?
This was one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. Thanks Mel Gibson for making this movie. I feel like I was right in the war with them on the screen. It was the best real life story told. I had tears in my eyes for all the guys that served in that war. I thought of my dad. He fought in Germany. He got shrapnel in his leg. That he always had a limp. Now I know why my dad would not talk about the war, All that they saw during that time. Thanks for everyone who served or is serving now.
As a combat veteran this is truly graphic and deals with the issues that many soldiers question themselves before going into battle. This was based on a true hero that stuck to his beliefs and in no way was a coward. The man risked everything and was truly willing to lay down his own life for his fellow soldiers. No greater love than that. War is never pretty and war movies shouldn't glamourize or sugar coat it. Too many kids playing xbox think life is a do-over. Well it isn't. What this man did was incredible and he saved alot of men that would have surely perished had he not been there. The point of the movie is not to glamourize his faith but put yourself into his shoes for a few hours and ask yourself could or would you have acted as bravely or noble as this man did.. I just wish I could have thanked him for his service and the lives he saved
I saw the documentary from the real person this movie is based upon and I found his story very touching. To see the movie almost a year later and the story be told in the same humble way was extraordinary.
A very good movie !
This is pornographic violence and blind dangerous faith couched in Christian piety...basically the other side of the coin of radical Islam, or any other radical insurgency for that matter. Good Christian folk, and empathic people everywhere, I implore you, by your actions, don't fall for this Neo liberal/ Communistic/ Totalitarian/ Fascistic melting pot of propaganda, or you too will be blindly following the path to your own destruction!
It's a true story, and one of the best movies I have ever seen in my 50+ years of going to movies!
Fantastic movie! I'm not usually of fan of war films but this one is a must see! One of the best movies I've ever seen! Very well done! Want to see it again!
Awesome story. Loved this movie.
The storyline, stand for what you believe in.
I LIKED EVERYTHING ABOUT THE MOVIE, THE ACTORS, THE STORY, THE DIRECTOR, THE PRODUCER, ETC. I HIGHLY RECOMMEN IT FOR EVERYONE TO WATCH IT AND ALSO BECAUSE I AM A BELIEVER OF GOD, BLESSINGS
Mel Gibson is a controversial figure, but he is a master story teller. This movie well illustrates the duality of human nature. Our species can be peaceful, loving, and merciful. We also glorify war, because of its brutality, sadism, and death. To summarize, "Hacksaw Ridge" is definitely worth seeing.
WWII American hero's story told by Mel Gibson.
This movie is FANTASTIC!!!! Definitely a MUST SEE. Don't miss it. I want to see it again and again.
I like everything,Mel Gibson is the best!
Great movie. Sure makes you think about how cruel war is.
Great movie on an amazingly humble man. A little more liberty with the script than needed as I have the documentary and book on Desmond Doss. Highly recommend the movie and the documentary, "Conscientious Objector."
Very realistic.. good story line...a very brave man....
Slow at first so to give you a background. But went from 0mph to 120mph, adrenaline pumping. It's not for the faint hearted, but that is the reality of war. If you want fast action, this would be it. I wished that I knew what ever happened to the other characters. It's an inspirational movie, that God will guide you if you believe in Him.
Best movie ever
Best Gibson movie yet. William Wallace was good, but Daws will make you cry.....
Best movie I've seen in a long time
Really good. I just hope it doesn't win many awards at the Oscars though. It's good, but not that good, and I'm afraid that they will do that since this is the classic Oscar bait choice.
What an amazing movie - one of the best I have ever seen. Shows the capacity of humans to love, and also their capacity to hate. Every adult should see this movie. Definitely too violent for anyone under about 16 years old. What an amazing story and an amazing part of the worlds history. Such an amazing movie
excellent film minus the gross parts, warning eat your popcorn way before the war scenes, mel did a great job and love all the actors as they did a good job in their roles and would see this film again
A testimate to the human spirit. Great visuals and acting!
Love of God & Country needs to be told all the time especially to the newer generation coming up. Oscar worthy movie that is a true story.
Great movie. Perhaps the reason the Japanese didn't cut the ropes is because they wanted the enemy to come to them so they could get their licks in after having the ships bombard them from offshore. The ropes also could have been secured on the cliffside as well smart guy.
This movie is Oscar quality It touches all emotions !! Wow Great acting by all a must see film
it is one hell of a movie and so precious to have the interviews with the actual heroes/ soldiers.
An incredible true story that needed to be told. The movie draws you into all of the experiences this young soldier endures during a fire fight. In addition it shows the strength that comes forth when faced with incredible adverserial situations.
One of the best movies I have ever seen!
great movie......one of the better flicks I've seen in awhile.... almost 5 stars
Missed the mark on many levels...the Japanese couldn't have cut the cargo net going up the wall face? It's too bad when you see a movie that looks great from the trailers.
Best movie in 2016
