#JustaQuickiePlease: Hacksaw Ridge
No one captures the realism and horror of combat, no matter the type or period than Mel Gibson and his latest historical drama is no exception. The embattled director and actor finally makes his comeback with a film that thoroughly and unashamedly inspires and engages from scene one until the credits roll. Garfield is superb as the real life hero who risked all to save over over 75 of his company without firing a single shot, let alone even touching a weapon. With an all-star cast that excels beyond expectations this cinematic venture based in truth effects you in the deepest parts of your soul and psyche. Prepare yourself for the trauma, terror, and triumph that is war, as this film is not for the faint of heart. 5 out of 5 Kernels; hope and heroism have rarely been better epitomized.
