4/5

Based upon a true story, this captivating movie tests the limit of human endeavor and the passion for helping others. This film highlights the plight of war and conditions of veterans, but it also tests the faith of human nature in the face of sheer adversity. The resilience shown by Doss is unmatched in his goal to succeed as a medic and prove his doubters wrong. I was surprised to find Vince Vaughn as an army Sergeant but he pulled off the role well, just like Mel Gibson’s directing which was astounding. Hacksaw Ridge showcases the goodness we have for others and it sends a strong message for the audience to help your fellow human, albeit in a tough environment. Therefore, if you’re debating, watch it!
