Hacksaw Ridge: Mel Gibson's Return

Here's a new movie we think you should watch!

Mel Gibson returns to film with his new movie, Hacksaw Ridge. His last film was in 2007 with Apocalypto, and his return to film does not disappoint. Hacksaw Ridge proves to us that Mel Gibson is a notable director/filmmaker.

Hacksaw Ridge tells the true story of Desmond Doss, the first conscientious objector in American history to be awarded the Medal of Honor. Due to a combination of traumatic childhood experiences and his deeply held beliefs as a Seventh Day Adventist, Doss adamantly refused to handle any type of firearm, much less take a human life. And yet, when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, the young man’s patriotism and sense of duty compelled him to enlist in the military anyway and serve his country as an Army medic.
