HACKSAW RIDGE REVIEWED

“Hacksaw Ridge” is a complicated film. Many have complained of Andrew Garfield playing his role a little too wide-eyed. I find that to be a misread. The film plays like a Jimmy Stewart movie splattered with realism. Through looks back into his past, working with his fellow soldiers and trying to survive War…we see a man emerge. Gibson does amazing work striking the right balance between old-fashioned faithful and modern terror. When compared to the rest of Gibson’s directing output, I find this film to be the most approachable. When it streets on home video in less than a month, we’ll have a proper follow-up.
