If you watched Hacksaw Ridge without knowing it’s a true story, you would say it’s an agenda-driven, same old WWII movie but the only difference is that the hero doesn’t die.

If you watched Hacksaw Ridge while know it’s a true story, you would than say that it’s an agenda-driven, same old WWII movie but the only difference is that the hero doesn’t die. But it’s true.

Hacksaw Ridge is a horrible movie. 

If not for the fact that it’s a true story, it would be ridiculous. It’s bad because it’s too easy of a story, a typical prove-everyone-wrong-and-make-them-change-their-minds-about-you story. It’s not the fact that he stays up on the ridge all night that makes you cringe, it’s that they take the ridge with ease the next day while rallying behind Desmond Daws & Jesus. Could’ve guessed it. Too easy to guess. The great films really keep you on your toes and make you think. Not this one.

Another thing, who casted Vince Vaughn as a Sgt in a WWII movie. He was so bad taht it was actually very funny. Maybe that was the point.

Maybe i don’t like it because Mel Gibson’s an Anti-Semite. 

Yeah, that’s probably why i don’t like it.
