The film starts with rather over-sentimental, soap opera style tendencies which are occasionally funny to watch, but nonetheless they are perfect at delivering character development to our front-running hero Desmond Doss. I was initially expecting a 'Pearl Harbor' approach, with over an hour of lovey-dovey sentimental crap followed by under-accomplished action, but it was quite the opposite. The opening features the stated character development drama, but gives us an insight into Doss's personal reasons for his faith and religious approaches, then thrusts us into war.Now, the war scenes... well, let's just say they're some scenes I doubt I'll be forgetting anytime soon. They're epic, they're visceral, they're emotional, they're gory, but above all else, they are executed perfectly. Upon reaching the top of the Maeda Escarpment, nicknamed "Hacksaw Ridge", the squad are instantly driven into the horrors of war, the loss of friends and hope. The raw and visceral images are maybe even a little too realistic. Dead bodies are strewn across the ground, innards and entrails litter the floor, smoke and fire choke the landscape. This is war.'Hacksaw Ridge' is a hard-hitting film that if watched and truly understood, will be an unforgettable experience, and the concluding interviews with the real-life Doss add to the emotional core. The cinematography is stunning, the music is beautifully alluring and the performances, especially from Andrew Garfield, are beyond fantastic, Garfield completely embodies the persona of Doss with sheer accuracy. Further shoutouts to Hugo Weaving, Sam Worthington and the surprisingly brilliant Vince Vaughn. This is, in my opinion, one of the greatest films to have graced 2016... or 2017 here in the UK! We forgive you Gibson!

I'm always confused at the ending though. She does fabulous at the sectionals. No one knows she is still blind. Then comes the flowers. "We forgot about the flowers" they all say, and they look so sad. Did she get disqualified at sectionals because she fell over the flowers? Doesn't seem right. They took an otherwise uber happy ending and leave you wondering "Am I happy for her" or "Am I sad for her?".

Robert H (br) wrote: With Silent Retreat Director Tricia Lee shows she has the talent needed to make a go at it in this dog eat dog world we call film. She manages to craft both a decent psychological thriller and a decent monster movie. Where the film tends to fail imo is that the film is both a psychological thriller and a monster movie. Had the story stayed within either realm I think it would have suceeded much more. The filmmakers try and weave the two story aspects together and to a certain extent, manage to accomplish much more than lesser skilled persons might, but neither storyline really feels like they completely mesh. In the end I wish Silent Retreat had actually been split into 2 very different films. It's clear that with a little work and changes to the story, it could have easily been accomplished. Will Tricia Lee become a household name in horror or will we see her silently retreat into obscurity? I hope to see much more of her work in the future and will continue to follow every single one of her horror related projects... this girl has something and her voice needs to be heard.
