"Hacksaw Ridge" is Extremely Bloody, But Seriously Moral
Mel Gibson makes gorefests, and this film is no exception.
However, the true story of Desmond Doss, the conscientious objector in World War II who won the Medal of Honor as a medic for saving many wounded under fire is worth the time.

As we face a rising tide of fascism around the world, we may need both.
