Hacksaw Ridge (*****) So many ways to serve

This is a great film, if you can stomach something as graphic as The Passion of the Christ. It's done in an equally sacred manner, if you value life. To see lives so easily lost, you will be more heartened to find a man running all through the night, praying for the strength to save "just one more."
