Hacksaw Ridge

Hacksaw Ridge –  is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss [Andrew Garfield] who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector to ever earn the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Q-tips say:  Liked it!  In a war zone, a medic refused to carry a gun and saved many soldiers and went on to earn the Congressional Medal of Honor.  Mrs. Q says: Was a great movie because it covers parts of his childhood and how he became who he is and what he believed in.. Yes, it is a war and parts are very bloody and violent but overall a great movie.
