Description

    Alternative Artwork Exclusive To JB Hi-Fi!

    One of the greatest heroes in America history never fired a bullet.

    HACKSAW RIDGE is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) 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 single-handedly rescued the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was injured by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector awarded the Congressional Medal of Honour, which is the highest military honour in the US, awarded for personal acts of valour above and beyond the call of duty.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mel's triumphant return Director Mel Gibson’s dramatisation of one of the bloodiest battles of the Second World War, on the Island of Okinawa in the Pacific, combines gritty and horrifying combat recreations with a love story and father/son politics. But ultimately it’s Andrew Garfield’s show, as conscientious objector Desmond Doss. Winner of two Academy Awards – Editing and Sound Mixing – and highly recommended.
