“Mel Gibson’s best film since Braveheart.” – Access Hollywood

The extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of World War II, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun.

He was the only American soldier in World War II to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic he single-handedly rescued the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was injured by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector awarded the Congressional Medal of Honour, which is the highest military honour in the US, awarded for personal acts of valour above and beyond the call of duty.

Classification: MA15+ (Strong battle violence, blood and gore)
