"With the world so set on tearing itself apart, don't seem like such a bad thing to me to want to put a little bit of it back together."With Braveheart, The Passion of the Christ and Apocalypto under his directorial belt, Mel Gibson's track record as a filmmaker is second to none, and thankfully his staggering winning streak is confidently maintained with 2016's Hacksaw Ridge. Even though a decade... read more

Notes:
*I saw the trailer for this and honestly wasn't too sure what to expect from it.
*After hearing nothing but positive word of mouth I decided to go ahead and check it out.
*It has a great cast anyways which is a plus.
*Besides that Mel Gibson is a pretty damn good director usually.
*I've never heard of the writers, but I wanted to see The Water Diviner which hap... read more

The best Gibson. In his extremely high clue, after a long exposition of peace and civilization values in the US, with romance and all that things; quickly it reaches literally a 'high plain' of violence and blood and Desmond heroics. So well done and filmed that the last imge od Desmond floating int he air feels natural. Y deplore Gibson conservative values, but the film is fucking coherent.

“Not one of my favourite war films, like 1930's 'All Quiet on the Western Front', 'Paths of Glory', 'The Thin Red Line' and 'Apocalypse Now', but exceptionally well made and incredibly powerful.

It has been said about 'Hacksaw Ridge' that the second half is better than the first half, something that is agreed with by me. Not that the family/character study stuff is bad, far from it, it's beautifully filmed, even better acted and paints Doss as a very fascinating character that it's easy from the get go to identify with his wants to succeed against all catastrophic odds.

Just that the first third does take time to get going with a pedestrian pace, the dialogue is corny (in fact, to me the dialogue is the least good thing about 'Hacksaw Ridge' in general and the element th” read more
