This is a movie of true Courage an Commitment to one self..if ever I’ve seen one..Desmond T. Doss.played brilliantly.
by Andrew Garfield” won the Congressional Medal of Honor despite refusing to bear arms during WW11 on religious
grounds, the guy was drafted and ostracized by his fellow soldiers which in there minds he will not have there back
when combat strikes..even though for his pacifist stance he went on to earn their respect and there adoration for his bravery.
I love how Mel Gibson took the time to introduce his subject..showing this story of Doss from a young age to his fight
to get into the Army..an the plight of his parents and of family life..
you can say whatever you want about Mel Gibson, but there is one thing you can’t say is..that he don’t know how to direct..
you bet your sweet tooth he does, have you ever seen Apocalypto” I say no more..about the Mayan Kingdom.
lets be clear on one thing you’ll never see a more realistic battle scene like this one..Not that I’ve seen one in real life..
only the Brave men who've lived it will know that..but in my own mind an image of it will know what its like..not pretty at all..
my only gripe is the casting of Vince Vaughn..he seem really too soft for the roll and his voice is not strong enough to be scary.
as a drill Sergeant but I can live with that..you bet yah..
