Review

I made it to the multiplex over the weekend, and was blown away by this movie — THIS is exactly what the movie-going experience is all about. After a ten-year hiatus since 2006’s awesome “Apocalypto”, Mel Gibson directs this true story of WWII American Army medic, Desmond Doss (played by “The Amazing Spider-man” himself, Andrew Garfield). He served during the Battle of Okinawa as a “conscientious objector”, or as he put it more fittingly, “conscientious contributor”. Rachel Griffiths and Hugo Weaving give in-depth performances as his parents, as do Vince Vaughn and Sam Worthington. Do yourself a big favor, and SEE THIS MOVIE!!
