Hacksaw Ridge | Ratings & Reviews

"Mad Mel is back with a long-overdue follow-up to his greatest directing accomplishment, Apocalypto. His flirtations with fascinating, exotic period pieces told in extinct languages sadly seem behind him, however, as he's delivered a highly simplistic Hollywood heartstring-tugger."

Flicks, Daniel RutledgeFlicks

"It immerses you in the violent madness of war - and, at the same time, it roots its drama in the impeccable valour of a man who, by his own grace, refuses to have anything to do with war."


"As he did so well in Braveheart, Gibson explores the reasons men fight for their country rather than just reveling in blood and gore."

USA TodayUSA Today

"There aren't many shades of grey in 'Hacksaw Ridge', but it follows through its purpose with vigour, confidence and swagger."

Time OutTime Out

"A bluntly effective faith-and-flag war drama, the true story of a remarkable hero with a knot of moral tension at its center."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"As repellent a figure as many may still find Gibson, I have to report he's absolutely hit Hacksaw Ridge out of the park."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"For all that less-than-subtle cinematic magpieing, Hacksaw Ridge is a deeply gripping and engrossing film made with passion, if perhaps a little too much bombast."


"This film is not for the faint-of-heart and nor should it be. Go armed with the knowledge that war is hell and Gibson doesn't want us to forget that."


"Gibson's forceful comeback is a violent drama about pacifism that succeeds in combining horror with grace."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"...undeniably moving...a well-crafted tale of the valour of man in truly harrowing circumstances..."
