Synopsis One might call this a refinement of Gibson’s fixations as a director: battles more terrifying than BRAVEHEART and a portrayal of sacrificial lambhood that’s more compelling than THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST...Steeped in blood, guts and Christian iconography, HACKSAW RIDGE is a tribute to one man’s courageous adherence to his deepest beliefs, made by a director whose commitment to his aesthetic principles is no less unswerving.Comparisons are already being made to AMERICAN SNIPER, another treatise on the trade-off between a war hero’s glory and what it costs his soul. -- Grade: B3.5 stars out of 4 -- It's the scenes of battle that send Hacksaw Ridge roaring to life, with Gibson and cinematographer Simon Duggan refusing to flinch from the harsh realities of ground warfare.[A] bluntly effective faith-and-flag war drama, the true story of a remarkable hero with a knot of moral tension at its center.HACKSAW RIDGE is a war film of the old school, celebrating nobility, courage and self-sacrifice in the tradition of THE BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI, PATHS OF GLORY and SAVING PRIVATE RYAN.Here Gibson is at his best, depicting the battle of Okinawa with an initial assault on the title objective that evokes SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, SEVEN SAMURAI, and STARSHIP TROOPERS....It is epic in scope, intimate in detail, and otherworldly in its dimensions...[I]t’s undeniably effective, a movie about the power of religious conviction that batters viewers with depictions of horrific violence and chaos.4 stars out of 5 -- [B]etween its religious themes and its trial by fire of a man’s faith, it burns with a bullish conviction that lends punch to its assaults on restraint.4 stars out of 5 - It’s a moving recreation of a khaki-clad superhero at work, an old-fashioned story that Gibson mainlines with bleeding-edge craft and technique -- he’s lost little of his knack for spectacle.3 stars out of 5 -- Mel Gibson’s robust directorial technique brings an undeniable punch to the combat scenes of this Oscar-nominated second world war drama.[Gibson] once again proves himself a muscular storyteller who knows exactly how to raise a pulse, heighten emotion and build intensity to explosive peaks.Mel Gibson directed this biopic about World War II Army medic Desmond Doss (played here by Andrew Garfield). A conscientious objector who refused to take a life or even carry a weapon, Doss was eventually awarded the Medal of Honor for saving the lives of 75 soldiers on the battlefields of Okinawa. Hugo Weaving, Teresa Palmer, Vince Vaughn, and Sam Worthington co-star in Gibson's return to the director's seat.
