3.5 stars out of 4 -- It's the scenes of battle that send Hacksaw Ridge roaring to life, with Gibson and cinematographer Simon Duggan refusing to flinch from the harsh realities of ground warfare.
Rating: A+ -- I loved all the performances, story and pacing and everything else. Full Review
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
[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
[Gibson] once again proves himself a muscular storyteller who knows exactly how to raise a pulse, heighten emotion and build intensity to explosive peaks.

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.
