Despite courting some controversy throughout his career Mel Gibson has proven himself to be a pretty competent film director. Hacksaw Ridge shows off his talents at directing large scale battles (as he also showed in Braveheart) but he flounders slightly in the build up to the brutal second half of the film. Hacksaw Ridge tells its story in a way that most have come accustomed to in such a genre (a love interest, his fellow squad members slow build a growing respect for him despite making him a target of bullying at the start are staple parts of the genre). The film it reminded me most of was Sergeant York (without the central hero killing the enemy) in which a simple country boy finds the love of his life, marries her and goes on to become a war hero.

The worst films of the year list is sometimes more enjoyable than the top 10 or 20 best films of the years lists of the year because people do like reading about how much someone hates something. Personally, I don’t like being negative but I disliked these films such much that they prop the list of films I saw from 2016 (which is well over 120) as the worst of the lot. My much more positive top 20 list will come soon after I have seen the likes of Lion, Fences, and Hidden Figures. I want the most complete list as possible.
