Hacksaw Ridge 4K UHD Blu - ray
Studio:  Lionsgate Films
Release Date:  2016
Rating: R
HDR: HDR10
Aspect ratio: 2.39:1

Film:  4.5 / 5

Plot – The mostly true story of Desmond Doss ( played by Andrew Garfield ), the first officially recognized  conscientious objector to be given the Medal of Honor for his actions during WWII in the Pacific as a medic.

For more on the real story –

My Thoughts – This is an incredible true war story, story of courage and a story of following one’s beliefs no matter the cost. Performances are excellent, and the story of Desmond Doss is in my opinion not to be missed.


Video : 4.5 / 5  - The 4K video, while upscaled, is excellent. Detail and color are top notch, as are black levels. This is a reference disc in my opinion.

Audio : 5 / 5 - The Dolby Atmos sound track on this disc is top notch. Surrounds get a workout during battle scenes, as will your subwoofer. My room shudders during the battleship shelling scenes.
A reference audio track all around.


Conclusion : this has become both a favorite war movie / biography and a demo worthy disc. Highly recommended.
