Hacksaw Ridge

Film Description:

Hacksaw Ridge – The Conscientious Objector

World War II American Army Medic Desmond T Doss who served during the Battle of Okinawa refuses to kill people and becomes the first Conscientious Objector in American history to win the Congressional Medal of Honor.

“Hacksaw Ridge, which Gibson hopes to shoot next year, is based on the life story of Desmond T Doss, a private in the US army who was drafted in 1942 and worked as a medic in the Pacific theatre. He was credited with saving the lives of 75 men during the battle of Okinawa after braving enemy fire while evacuating wounded soldiers near the front line. The Seventh-day Adventist was the first conscientious objector to receive the medal of honor, and was also handed two bronze stars and three purple hearts for his heroics. Doss was wounded by a grenade and shot by a sniper while working on the battlefield.”

    This will not be a typical WW2 movie. This movie is about an underdog who saves dozens of lives without thought to his personal safety and all this is after they treated him so badly. He diď not need a gun to give him courage. Read the following article about Desmond Doss and also go to Wikipedia and read his medal of honor citation. This is going to be one of the best movies in recent years.
    Gregory Crosby, one of the producers, assured me there would be no F words or taking the name of God in vain. Christians who want to send a message to Hollywood to produce better quality movies should go out and see this movie then tell their friends about it and buy the DVD. . Money talks to these guys.

    The documentary has been around for many years. I was very surprised when I saw Mel chose to do this story. I can’t believe he found this story. It’s the perfect sequel to the Passion. It’s as close as you can get to the Passion 2. The only difference is that it’s not about redemption….it’s about obedience to God. It’s not a war story…that’s secondary. It’s the story of a man that chooses to fearlessly do exactly what Jesus said to do. It’s Matthew 5 in fulfillment. Turn the other cheek…..don’t run towards your enemy to kill him….that’s fear….don’t run away from your enemy…that’s fear. Trust God!

    This is going to be an interesting movie….If I could boil Desmond Doss down to two words it would be fearless love.
