Two-time Spider-Man Andrew Garfield is WWII American Army medic Desmond T Doss, who served during the Battle of Okinawa, and has a conscience that might get him killed… but obviously won’t because otherwise the film would end rather abruptly. Basically, he refuses to kill people and becomes the first Conscientious Objector in American history to be awarded the Medal of Honor. Or ‘Honour’ as we call it in Blighty. Then again, we still call the videogame series ‘Medal of Honor‘.
The film is trumpted as coming “from the director of Braveheart”, but it doesn’t state that that person is Hollywood troublemaker Mel Gibson. In addition, it also stars a less than stellar cast of Teresa Palmer, Sam Worthington, Hugo Weaving, Vince Vaughn, Rachel Griffiths and Point Break 2015‘s Luke Bracey.
Well, Mr Weaving is a great actor, but the rest?
If you care about its release, then November 4th is the US date, with January 27th 2017 for the UK.
