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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hacksaw Ridge I always knew Mel Gibson was a good actor but as a director he excels, if you thought he did a good job on Braveheart this one will knock you out. He directed the battle scenes as a true brutal and realistic vision that makes people understand what a horrific nightmare war really is. You won't be sorry adding this DVD to your collection.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hacksaw Ridge. Yawn. This film is no Saving Private Ryan. A good story has been taken and bent with this director’s usual purpose, into a story about good religion conquering all. The action scenes later in the film do not rescue it from its poor start. The real story of Desmond Doss, the central character, would have been better told with a serious treatment of his experiences in Marine boot camp, which is where he would have displayed real True Grit, rather than on the battlefield where everyone did. And don’t expect to see here a serious treatment of the Battle of Okinawa.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hacksaw Ridge Its a brilliant movie with a number of Aussie actors. Its a true story and sticks to the facts instead of glossing over actual incidents and making them out to be lesser or bigger. Mel Gibson did a magnificent job in putting together the battle scenes which makes one shiver and opens our eyes to what Veterans from Australia and our Allies experienced and what they spend the rest of their lives trying to forget.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hacksaw Ridge Purchased this disc a few weeks ago. I don't know that it is correct to say that I enjoyed the film, but it was certainly outstanding. The graphic war scenes were extremely well done, and the film was well acted and directed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing story I can't get out to the cinemas with a small child but I REALLY wanted to see this so thought it was worth pre-ordering! I'm SO GLAD I did!!! An amazing story that is immaculately produced and from a Christian perspective it's so much better than many other soggy over-cooked tales of miracles. There was a fair bit of war violence and gore, but I was expecting it and it wasn't too bad honestly, and the story shone all the way through! Definitely worth buying and watching with your mates!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Drama I wad captivated by the movie from the opening scenes. Amazing to be made in Australia, with so many Australians in major and minor roles. The story of a very strong willed man.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Realism in a war pic An excellent retelling of a unique war story. A conscientious objector getting the highest wartime decoration available. Bloody war footage makes difficult watching.
