Inoffensive, but very forgettable
14 June 2017 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

It's interesting to compare the family movies the Disney company made decades ago with what they typically put out nowadays. A movie like "Hacksaw" would almost certainly never be made today. It's missing a juvenile touch for the most part, for one thing - its tone is pretty sober and serious, and seems more aimed at adult viewers instead of children. (There are also no child characters, at least with any dialogue.) But its more mature viewpoint comes at a price, that price being that the movie is kind of slow and dull for most of the running time. None of the characters have to face really challenging (and essential) tasks - if they were to fail at what they have to tackle, you can see that they would just shrug off the experience and move on. Naturally because of this, it's kind of hard to get involved with the lead characters. The movie is never slow or dull enough to be really painful to watch, but there's also no particular reason to watch it. If you do, the memory of watching it will quickly evaporate from your mind not long after it reaches its end.
