Hacksaw Ridge

A+

This is a story of faith and bravery, told simply. Mel Gibson, director, doesn't push the pace. He lets the story unfold naturally. When it comes to the battle of Hacksaw Ridge, the action and chaos are incredible. And there's amazing footage at the very end of the movie.

Yep, very well done
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

Yes, Blood Father was a much better than average "action flick".
