I’m not a fan of war movies, but every once in a while a movie comes along that changes my whole perspective, Hacksaw Ridge is one of those movies.
This movie follows a young gentleman by the name of Desmond T. Doss as he stands up for his faith and for God when he refuses to carry a gun for the United States Army during World War II.
Faced with prison time, Doss, played by Andrew Garfield (Spiderman), eventually wins his fight and saves over 75 lives, without ever touching a gun.
In real life, Desmond T. Doss was a Seventh-Day Adventist, the same religion that I am. I’ve always grown up believing the same beliefs that Doss did, but I had no idea that someone like him ever existed.
Hacksaw Ridge was probably a more gory movie than I’ve ever watched, but the movie was absolutely amazing. Andrew Garfield, along with Vance Vaughn (Wedding Crashers) and the other cast did amazing playing their roles.
Throughout the movie, I laughed, cried, and watched horrified as I seen the cruel realization of war.
Hacksaw Ridge is not a movie for little eyes, but the story it tells is one of bravery and faith.
