After watching Apocalypto and Mad Max directed by Mel Gibson, as a kid, I learned a lot about how perfect a movie can be made. Mel Gibson has a special place in my heart. He is a director who can combine action, computer graphics, and dramatics to etch out a visual treat for the audience. This time, he is back with a World War II based movie, Hacksaw Ridge. It stars the amazing spider-man. Haha. I was just kidding. It stars Andrew Garfield, who played spider-man in the amazing spider-man, along with Vince Vaughn, Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, Hugo Weaving. The movie revolves around Desmond T. Doss who refused to bear arms in the World War and yet, was awarded Medal of Honor.
1. The theme of Hacksaw Ridge is anti-war. It’ll be different to see a War based movie that goes against war itself.
2. Hacksaw Ridge is the true story of a remarkable hero with a knot of moral tension at its center.
3. It is more inspiring than impressive.
4. Hacksaw Ridge marks an impressive comeback from Mel Gibson without any doubt.
The movie is rated R for intense prolonged realistically graphic sequences of war violence including grisly bloody images. Parents are adviced to stay with their children while watching this movie with them.
I give this masterpiece 4.5 pucchis.
