Now the film itself. Its the very best new release I have seen for years, based on a true story about a contentious objector who enlists as a medic but refuses to handle a rifle and is bullied by his section. Only to end up a hero by saving the lives of over seventy of his men in action. I have watched this film a good few times now and always glued to it from start to finish. It still brings tears to my eyes.
The director, Mel Gibson has produced a war story that needed to be told in such a heart warming graphic way, the family issues, the love interest, the fight to be accepted and not branded a coward, and that's before leaving US soil.
Once the battle scenes commence you are there, the atmosphere watching this movie is intense, the reality of war hits you, and amongst all the blood, death, severed limbs, we see hope, valour and the meaninglessness of why we choose to dominate and destroy each other.....Mel Gibson is a mighty director, the story told is a powerful message.....within darkness and death, life can shine.
Buy, watch, enjoy, it's a film that deserves it's place amongst the finest of war movies.

What he went through in that action was bad enough, but it was then followed by decades of subsequent health issues resulting from that. To cap it all his first wife pre-deceased him by 15 years in 1991 after a car accident (he remarried). He died 23 March 2006 age 87 RIP Desmond.
A blunt, brutal film - not for the fainthearted, Mel Gibson did not pull his punches - but a fitting testament to an amazing man.
Loved this amazing film, not just because it was a good WWII film but because it is based on a true to life story of an incredibly brave man.
Yes it was sentimental but also very touching when you get to see the genuine good there is in mankind.
Great story great action even though a lot of gor, but true to how war actually is.
A film I could definitely watch again and there are very few of them I would watch again.
