Watched Hacksaw Ridge, based on real life story of Desmond Doss, who served as a medic in the US army during World War II. Adhering to his principles and religious beliefs, Desmond Doss refuses to touch a weapon even though he volunteers to join the Army. Even though he is ridiculed by his colleagues and superiors during the training period, Doss surprises everyone during US operations in Japan by single-handedly rescuing several wounded soldiers, putting his own life at risk throughout his adventures.
There are several horrifyingly realistic visuals in the war scenes of Hacksaw Ridge. Though the film would make us appreciate the real life hero, I felt that the film as such is neither as gripping and moving as other famous war films like Saving Private Ryan, nor is it an all-round cinematic experience as The Thin Red Line.
