Hacksaw Ridge

Hacksaw Ridge is a 2016 biographical war film directed by Mel Gibson and written by Andrew Knight and Robert Schenkkan, based on the 2004 documentary The Conscientious Objector. The film focuses on the World War II experiences of Desmond Doss, an American pacifist combat medic who, as a Seventh-day Adventist Christian, refused to carry or use a weapon or firearm of any kind. Doss became the first conscientious objector to be awarded the Medal of Honor, for service above and beyond the call of duty during the Battle of Okinawa. Andrew Garfield stars as Doss, with Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, Teresa Palmer, Hugo Weaving, Rachel Griffiths, and Vince Vaughn in supporting roles.

Desmond Doss: I don't know how I'm going to live with myself if I don't stay true to what I believe.
  • Mel Gibson stated that if Desmond T. Doss were alive today, he would want him to be President of the United States.
  • One aspect that appealed to Mel Gibson in making this movie was that it contained a "real" superhero without spandex.
  • Mel Gibson stated that Desmond T. Doss was the first Conscientious Objector in American history to be awarded the Medal of Honor, and he has inspired others to save almost the same number of lives and those inspired have gone on to become recipients of the Medal of Honor.
  • Film debut of Milo Gibson. NOTE: He is the son of Mel Gibson, and this is the first cinematic collaboration between the two.
  • Luke Bracey's character states multiple times how hot he thinks Teresa Palmer's character is. This is ironic, since she played his love interest in Point Break (2015).
