Hacksaw Ridge (15)

USA/2016/139mins/15. Dir: Mel Gibson With: Andrew Garfield, Sam Worthington, Vince Vaughn, Teresa Palm

This is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss who, during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men. Believing that whilst the war was justified, killing was wrong, so took part as an army medic without firing or carrying a gun. A man of single–mindedness who shows strength that many dismiss as weakness in this epic war film about pacifism.

"The extended final battle scenes are horrendously naturalistic, which puts a distinction on the film it might otherwise not have had. The horror of war, at least for the boots on the ground, has seldom been more apparent. You leave the theatre more than a trifle stunned."
