Despite all his shortcomings, Mel Gibson can direct powerful movies. His latest masterpiece Hacksaw Ridge should be nominated for every major award there is and it would be a shame if it doesn’t win any of them. This film was absolutely phenomenal in every aspect, including the passion of the characters in the face of death, the cinematography of the bloodshed of war, the beautiful score accompanying the action, and the drama of saving men while the bombs rain down on the battlefield. This movie is one of the best I have ever seen and will give you plenty of opportunities to shed a tear. Hacksaw Ridge is hands down my pick for movie of the year because it will tug at your heart-strings and put you right in the middle of the action.
