Some 11 years after after his epic fall from grace in 2006 following a drunk-driving incident and anti-semitic rants, Mel Gibson returned to Hollywood with the fact based film Hacksaw Ridge. His return, whilst targeted at the US markets, was filmed in Australia and took the amazing story of Desmond T. Doss to the big screen. Gibson’s efforts in an olive branch to Hollywood certainly worked - for this film he received six Oscar nominations, one of which was for best Director. The Story of Desmond Doss is absolutely incredible and Gibson really has done credit in promoting an amazing fete of personal discipline, bravery and demonstrating that nothing is impossible with the right resolve and determination.
