[A] bluntly effective faith-and-flag war drama, the true story of a remarkable hero with a knot of moral tension at its center.
New York Times
4 stars out of 5 -- [B]etween its religious themes and its trial by fire of a man’s faith, it burns with a bullish conviction that lends punch to its assaults on restraint.
4 stars out of 5 - It’s a moving recreation of a khaki-clad superhero at work, an old-fashioned story that Gibson mainlines with bleeding-edge craft and technique -- he’s lost little of his knack for spectacle.
Gibson intelligently uses the story to align the beliefs of his protagonist with his own beliefs and let his speech move away from the revenge that his detractors would expect. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review

Rating: B -- HACKSAW RIDGE will have a broad appeal to most audience goers, those who love a classic Hollywood romance and uniformed men will love the craftsmanship put into the period. Full Review
Steeped in blood, guts and Christian iconography, HACKSAW RIDGE is a tribute to one man’s courageous adherence to his deepest beliefs, made by a director whose commitment to his aesthetic principles is no less unswerving.
Los Angeles Times
Mel Gibson directed this biopic about World War II Army medic Desmond Doss (played here by Andrew Garfield). A conscientious objector who refused to take a life or even carry a weapon, Doss was eventually awarded the Medal of Honor for saving the lives of 75 soldiers on the battlefields of Okinawa. Hugo Weaving, Teresa Palmer, Vince Vaughn, and Sam Worthington co-star in Gibson's return to the director's seat.
