Homer M. Doss was a Seventh-day Adventist who served as an army medic and saved the lives of his fellow soldiers without once picking up a gun. Hacksaw Ridge works hard to show just how strong his faith needed to be to reach that level of courage. But the film never makes Doss into a dynamic character, and shows no interest in doing so, which is a major weakness. A childhood incident in which young Desmond nearly kills his brother causes him to reject violence completely.
chapter - National Sojourners
To the dismay of his family, Doss signs up to be a medic during World War II out of a sense of patriotic duty but faces opposition during basic training when he refuses to touch a gun. The devout, courageous Doss overcomes the hazing and legal challenges the army sends his way. Throughout the film, Doss is shown as a gentle, selfless person who wants to do good.
The effect of this portrayal is much like a superhero film, where the superpower on display is faith in God instead of heat vision. The intent is to show the horror of war in as hellish a way as possible, and Gibson does make the battlefield look like a blasted nightmare landscape.
