Summary
  • It's the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he singlehandedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers
  • "Hacksaw never really delves into the moral grays; it's just black and white and red all over."--Entertainment Weekly
  • "This is a tough movie, but it's also accomplished and driven filmmaking, ultimately in the service of something good."--San Francisco Chronicle
  • "Hacksaw Ridge is faithful to the story of Desmond Doss in every sense of the word."--Richard Roeper
