At the beginning of the movie is the family drama, murder and love, which will make the viewer happy, laugh, and fascinated. The next section features a completely different scene – the dreadful battle, which will force the viewer to rise.
Director Mel Gibson handles both parts well. There was no doubt that Braveheart, an action-oriented movie like Apocalypto, gifted with goodwill, would also show Munciana in a war film.
But Mel Gibson, who is equally adept at portraying family ties, emotions, drama and love, can be found in the Hawks Ridge movie. Prior to being named director, Mel Gibson was once a well-known actor. Therefore, it can be said that he is rich in experience.
Amazing Spider-star actor Andrew Garfield plays the main character of the movie, Desmond Doss. With a sweet smile and a straight face, the audience has captured the mind.
Desmond Dos became so involved with the character that he never once thought he was acting. As a result, he was also nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor.
Hugo Weaving starred in the matrix movie villain Agenda Smith, played by Dos’s father. Well done, that’s not to say.
Teresa Palmer plays Doss’s lover Dorothy. The blue-eyed woman, from the face of this woman to the smile, is all the more fascinating.
There is a side character named Captain Jack Glover who plays avatar actor Sam Worthington. His presence on screen was minimal, but the acting was not lacking.
Simon Dagen was in charge of the cinema scene. He presented the war very realistically and brutally to the viewer through the eyes of the camera. The viewer will feel as if he is present on the battlefield and can see everything in front of his eyes.
Rupert Grayson-Williams, two talented music directors in charge of cinematic music. They performed their tasks very efficiently. The precise background music they do with different scenes makes the movie more enjoyable for the viewer.
