Andrew Garfield goes to war in Mel Gibson's Hacksaw Ridge trailer

07.28.2016

Mel Gibson, like Tom Cruise, may be a "unique" person when it comes to his personal life - but mother of God - does that man know how to make a movie. BRAVEHEART, though historically all over the place, is one of the greatest modern epics; PASSION OF THE CHRIST may be over-the-top, but it's beautifully filmed; and APOCALYPTO is a combination of the last two. He is a true filmmaker, and if you need more proof, check out the first trailer for his new movie HACKSAW RIDGE:

Andrew Garfield plays soldier Desmond T. Doss in the true story about the man who was awarded the Medal of Honor during World War II for saving 75 men without firing a single shot.

I think this is the war movie the world needs right now: A movie that honors the courage of a solider who wants nothing more than to make a difference without killing, as opposed to one who does nothing but kill (AMERICAN SNIPER). There's something beautiful in this war story and Gibson appears to have captured it.

HACKSAW RIDGE is set to come out in the heart of Oscar season on November 4.

I normally look forward to Mel Gibson's directorial efforts. This one, well...
The movie was kinda melodramatic and cliched. At least it was only 2 minutes and 20 seconds long.

You're right, American Sniper was just about a guy who wanted to kill people. Yep.

Not a big Garfield fan

But i am a big Mel Gibson fan, this looks good but i agree with some others they should've taken someone else as the lead character.

Would be cool if Gibson made more movies, in front of and behind the camera. King conan or another Rambo would also be cool.
And maybe an action comedy with Robert Downey again.

Is this guy deaf? His accent is horrible. They could've gotten a better actor.

This is not only what America needs.

It's a movie liberals can get behind which is what Mel Gibson needs

And

It's a chance back into stardom that Andrew Garfield needs after losing Spidey

One Glaring Ommission!

Its sad that the movie company won't even put Mel Gibson's name on the screen as the director with fear that it will keep viewers away from checking this film out.

I noticed that too... Mel tarnished his own name and if they want to sell tickets, putting up those two movies on the poster is the next best thing.

Fair enough but I can't say putting the Passion of the Christ on the poster doesn't immediately provoke a strong reaction as well. It's not naming him specifically but it's pretty damn close.

A bit too 'Murican for my taste, plus Garfield's accent is atrocious.

I disagree. The fact that the main character is against firing weapons, says to me that it is quite anti-American.

Absolutely, but I mean the overal vibe of the film: heroism and courage (in slo-mo, no less) under a lathering of uplifting music. That combination automatically elicits an eye roll from me.

"heroism and courage (in slo-mo, no less) under a lathering of uplifting music" . well that pretty much describes 99% of the action movies today that ive seen both european and asian as well so your point doesnt quite describe the"murican" feel but nonetheless its your opinion and i respect it.

It does indeed, and if it was German, I would've said it's a bit too "Germun", or too "Croatiun" if it was from there. But it's from America, hence: 'Murican.

Wow! The visuals alone are just jaw dropping.

There are far too few auteurs in Hollywood anymore, it's nice to one of the best back behind the camera again.

I think you're right that this is the kind of movie we all need to see right now. Not sure if this will get Mel an Oscar nod, considering his behavior the past few years, but it looks pretty fantastic.
