Some takes on it-and more so, certain elements encapsulated within those views-are likely philosophically self-reverential and a demonstration of current modern angst toward what those individuals may term as traditionalism, but I see the film's structure and character development rather differently.Does the director (Mel Gibson) use a hand that is too heavy in any way? I do not believe so at all. Filmmakers the likes of Oliver Stone and James Cameron tend to bludgeon one over the head. Mr. Gibson is not really of the same cloth. While in Hacksaw Ridge he was clearly acknowledging that what Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) did was miraculous in and of itself, he was also allowing for the view that Mr. Doss himself had toward prayer, faith and divinity. Such was clearly part of the man and the film is simply being honest in presenting that. The viewer may take from it what the viewer will, but I say HACKSAW RIDGE is an excellent example of exemplary film-making.My father was a Marine and Okinawa was the location of his deployment. He was seriously wounded there and wasn't expected to live, but he did. Then he wasn't expected to walk again, but he did. He then went on to live a life of hard physical labor. He was a man whom I will always hold in deep love and respect. When I was a small child I used touch his wounds--which were all over his stomach, side, lower back and buttocks--and ask what they were. He would just tell me that they were wounds from a war. When I got older he described circumstances on Okinawa to me in more detail (though he was never verbose about it) and they were strikingly similar to those depicted in HACKSAW RIDGE.The movie is certainly not easy to watch at times, but it is quite thought-provoking and most affecting. And those who know of the situation on that island at that time will find it quite realistic.

Puede que este drama bblico no sea tan grandilocuente como "Los Diez mandamientos", "Quo Vadis" o "The Robe", pero es un buen trabajo que logra envolver de principio a fin y que incluye a dos grandes de la poca dorada de Hollywood.
