In a world like ours, how far can you go without doing away with the morals and ethics?? This movie is based on a true story. The protagonist, Desmond Doss, went on to save 75 lives on front lines (during WWII) without ever firing a single shot. This story of courage and conviction is admirable.
Mel Gibson is back with a bang!! Possibly his best movie since Braveheart. The storyline remains fairly simple, yet it is a thrilling experience. This has been a good year for Andrew Garfield. Two powerful performances with the such great directors, first with Mel Gibson in this and the other in Silence with Martin Scorsese. He deserves it!!
I loved the simplicity of the story and the optimism it portrays. Mel Gibson did a wonderful job as a director. It’s just beautiful. You should definitely watch it.
IMDb-“WWII American Army Medic Desmond T. Doss, who served during the Battle of Okinawa, refuses to kill people, and becomes the first man in American history to receive the Medal of Honor without firing a shot.”
