World War II 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.
A seasoned FBI agent pursues Frank Abagnale Jr. who, before his 19th birthday, successfully forged millions of dollars' worth of checks while posing as a Pan Am pilot, a doctor, and a legal prosecutor.
The youngest son of an alcoholic former boxer returns home, where he's trained by his father for competition in a mixed martial arts tournament - a path that puts the fighter on a collision course with his estranged, older brother.
The true story of Desmond T. Doss, the conscientious objector who, at the Battle of Okinawa, was awarded the Medal of Honor for his incredible bravery and regard for his fellow soldiers. We see his upbringing and how this shaped his views, especially his religious view and anti-killing stance. We see Doss's trials and tribulations after enlisting in the US Army and trying to become a medic. Finally, we see the hell on Earth that was Hacksaw Ridge.Written by
Under normal circumstances soldiers do not salute indoors with few exceptions: reporting for pay call (which no one does in the pay call scene despite this being required), ceremonial formations (such as in a gymnasium), when reporting to a board (i.e. a promotion interview board), or when reporting to an officer (i.e. after being summoned by the Company Commander). Furthermore, Doss salutes the Court Marshall panel which is improper because soldiers in custody are denied the privilege of saluting in all circumstances. See more »
Numerous times during basic training scenes and court-martial scenes soldiers are seen rendering a hand salute indoors. You do not hand salute indoors unless reporting-in to a superior officer; you come to attention. See more »
Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the Earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and His understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall. But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not be faint.

Okay. Yeah, this film is great. 100% worth watching, it works really well if you don't know the Doss story prior either. Acting, directing and cinematography all brilliant. My only real negatives are that the first half of the film felt longer than it needed to be.
Nothing much else to say, but watch this film if you haven't seen!
