Hacksaw Ridge

Mel Gibson (yeah, that Mel Gibson) directs this true story about a World War II army medic who served during the battle of Okinawa, despite being a conscientious objector. Even though Desmond Doss (played here by The Amazing Spider-Man's Andrew Garfield) refused to carry a weapon, he saved the lives of many soldiers and was eventually awarded a Medal of Honor. Gibson is in remarkably good territory here, giving audiences a vigorously old-fashioned tale of heroism. 131 minutes R.
