Started off neato but then more heart-string time-travel about some fucking daughter. Like the time traveler's wife [horrible]; interstellar [good]; others I haven't seen or can't remember. CLOYING
Maybe the most facile WWII yet.
Garfield is amazing, acting-wise.
Everything else is American Exceptionalist Movie.
I guess no Jasp medics existed, just hordes. And by that if this medic loves life so much he should've stayed up on that ridge and deliver it to the Jasps. And the movie also even laughably tried to present him doing such to on Jasp, but just with a bandage to a shoulder.
And wow, maybe there were actual medics, German or Jasp, in WWII! Maybe even Viet Cong medics in that war!
And well, this movie starts with some kind of Christian hominy, and a lot of that stuff all along, and no sort of Shinto or Confucionist or Buddhist purifying stance for the Jasps. Nah, they're just mostly ants.
Very good acting and war scenes though, for that I give it THREE STARS.
This review was denied due to my not following community standards apparently by referring to the movie calling folks "Ja(...)p"s. Maybe if that's a problem this site should ban "Hacksaw Ridge" entirely, since that word is in there.
Banal but well shot and well-acted. The tale at end turns into fantasy when the villain unveils a Magic Gatling Gun that can elevate and sweep and send 75,000 bullets downstream all with a two-foot "clip" the operator puts in.
That gun did more damage to Ethan Hawke and the Chinaman in the tower than the Nazi 88 or tank did to Barry Pepper in his tower in "Saving Private Ryan".
I mean, I guess all Tom Hanks in the latter movie should've done to stymie the Nazis was to reveal a GATLING GUN which would just penetrate things to infinity and spread bullets as if from a sun with photons, spreading everywhere in a cosmic globe.
So. Yeah, I mean just a few tweaks from a scriptwriter or plotter would've made this a nice character study ala the previous and the Kurosawa. Instead Magic Gatling Gun.
And why so much effort from the town to secure Denzel and the other samurais? They should've just bought a Gatling Gun of their own, right? Or done the ritual that would make such a weapon appear, as unexpected and impossible-to-be as the Seven Samurai made it.
Not much war in this movie between Horde and Alliance. And the final scene/battle, of Lothar vs. [random orc never-before in mythos] started and ended in about six seconds. And yet narrative-needed horde thought it was magnificently honorable. SPOILER: pumped up evil new-orc from fel magic who killed Lothar's son dies from Lothar sliding under to sword his penis and then stabs him in the back. I think even Lothar's son at the moment of dying and seeking revenge might've been "uh, but dad, don't do some lame-ass shit like that?"
Pathetic fight-scenes all around. No care about movements or hefts or positions. Or even WOW things, none of which work like that...
Good acting though. And ironically my favorite is Gul'dan, very scary from brawn and magick, total badass.....and I just found out played by Daniel Wu, "Sunny" from Enter the Badlands and other badassery. Yet still, actual good fight scenes didn't exist. Except for maybe yeah, where Gul'dan took off his fel magicks and instead when badass toe-to-toe. With that...Durotan or Ogrim, some random who didn't really do anything. I was at that point rooting for Gul'dan.
So yeah, good acting, especially from Wu as Gul'dan and Ben Foster as Medivh and Paula Patton as Garona. Combat? War? Look elsewhere for those excitements.
Final final scene is I guess Thrall down the river to the human and arena and slavery and whatnot. But that pretends as if this was a prequel that would engender more movies based on a whirlwind of excitement. This is far less deserving of that than say, Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins. Which unlike this rather shit movie, was awesome throughout.
The problem with "Jaws" is the Quint character, who desires to commit suicide by shark. Regardless of anyone else on an expedition alongside.
Well I mean that's the obvious result of Quint's actions. Instead this movie supposes there are other motives for the character.
Good directing and acting. Other than that person who played "Quint", or the writer of that character.
It's just like whatever then. May as well be a feature film about a trio going to the moon and avoid an asteroid but then some Asshole member of the crew actually has a fetish to die-by-asteroid so turns the spaceship into the asteroid.
Meh. Nice movie. "Iconic" I don't know why that would give any star. And I'm old, ooooooold. I like that early Spielberg movie with the trucker even better durrrr.
