Hacksaw Ridge movie Review

I don't know how entertaining it is going to be for you. But depends on what you consider entertainment or you watch movies for entertainment.

It is gory. Depiction of world war.

It made me think of people like Howard Roark, Elon Musk, Sadhguru jaggi Vasudev, Martin Luther King junior, Mahatma Gandhi, Steve Pavlina.
Celebrates man's loyalty to his values (convictions) even if it leads him to hell. He finds solace in his values and aligning with them. 

This movie made me cry. Interestingly at the most unconventional of places. (Spoiler Alert: When he proposes to her for marriage after she very cutely confronts him. lol.). May be it was because how naive and authentic he was and it worked (he gets the girl :) ). About how much she seem to see through to him to his depth and falls for the MAN that he is. May be reassures me to naive and authentic to actually succeed.

Being scrawny is not an excuse for being brave. 

Makes me think, where have i given up my values for comfort and ease where i should trusted and aligned to values.
