WATCH: Mel Gibson Returns To Directing With WWII Epic “Hacksaw Ridge”

It’s been 10 years since Mel Gibson sat in the director’s chair, but this November he will present a WWII epic that looks like┬áhe hasn’t lost his touch. “Hacksaw Ridge” is the true story of Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield), a conscientious objector who, while he never holds a gun, becomes a hero serving as a medic. His bravery and compassion during the Battle of Okinawa earned him the Medal of Honor.

In a story reminiscent of “Sargent York,” Doss faces heavy opposition for his religious beliefs of non-violence. It’s ironic that the story of a peaceful man is filled with (at least from the trailer) such stunningly crafted war scenes, but Gibson has always balanced the horror and drama of war very well.

“Hacksaw Ridge” opens on November 4.
