  I don't often comment on movies but I just finished watching Hacksaw Ridge.  I would have to say that even with all the blood and gore shown because it's primes is about WW2, but it was one of the best faith based movies I have seen in quite some time.  If you can handle the graphic nature of war I highly recommend this movie.  It is based on a true story and is quite inspirational and what one man was able to accomplish is simply amazing.  Having been involved in the 1st Gulf War I saw many things that probably will be with me for life but this movie shows that even in the most horrible times there can be good in anyone.  I watched this movie not expecting it to be faith based and showing what man can accomplish with faith and perseverance.

 

  I highly recommend this movie to anyone who can also handle the gruesome nature of war along with a faith based theme.

Same here. What ever your opinion of him, Mel Gibson has excelled with this. I reckon he might have picked up a few things from his time with We Were Soldiers. I had to keep telling myself that it was a true story while watching it. I'm looking forward to reading the book about this to learn more.

If you haven't seen them yet, I would also recommend Unbroken for its story of the human spirit but the book is a lot better and also The Railway Man for its portrayal of the human spirit and its recovery and capacity to forgive. For me, a big takeaway from The Railway Man was the unselfish role Patricia "Patti" Wallace (Nicole Kidman) played in his recovery.

 

I think it's only when placed in these horrendous conditions does the human spirit get a chance to honestly demonstrate its full potential and capacity. A shame that these conditions have a chance to occur in the first place though.

I have seen Unbroken and it was a great movie. I would recommend it to anyone.
