Review: Hacksaw Ridge

OscarTalk Hacksaw Ridge Review

Did you hear about the conscientious objector who served in the U.S. military during World War II? He worked as a medic and refused to carry a weapon or to kill enemy combatants. In spite of the fact that he was ridiculed by his platoon and almost court-martialed for failure to follow orders during training, he ended up being one of the most courageous war heroes in U.S. history.

No. That wasn’t a spoiler. That was what happened in the preview for Hacksaw Ridge, this year’s Oscar-season WWII battlefield feature.
