The genuine story of Desmond Doss, the pacifist who, at the Battle of Okinawa, won the Medal of Honor for his unimaginable grit and respect for his kindred fighters. We see his childhood and how this formed his perspectives, particularly his religious view and against executing position. We see Doss' hardships subsequent to enrolling in the US Army and attempting to end up distinctly a doctor. At long last, we see the terrible that was Hacksaw Ridge.
|nudity||5/10 From 27:56-34:50 you will see a man naked. Most of the time it will be a side view or chest up. Sometimes he will be using his hands to cover his groin. There is a close-up shot of his butt as he works out, and his butt is seen again as he runs out of a room. He covers his groin, however some skin can be seen under his hand when he is seen from the side, supposedly his testicles. Again later a side view of him fully nude while he is crawling through the mud. The scene is played for comedic purpose but is quite gratuitous. 1:03:35-1:04:20 Sex implied (married couple). 29:30 a man looking at a nudie magazine (about a 5 second clip)|
