1. Tells the story of World War II hero Desmond Doss, the first conscientious objector to receive the Medal of Honor for bravery in battle. Doss, a medic,didn't like his story be told, and his story could only be told after a long struggle.
2. Mel Gibson can still direct. This is his first directorial effort in 10 years, but doesn't feel like Mel has lost a touch, as this New Yorker review shows.
