  35. Hacksaw Ridge | Did You See That One? - February 5, 2017

    […] The acting in this film is really good. I’d be lying if I said that I was a fan of Garfield prior to this movie. After seeing his performance I’ve been converted. He handled the lead role in this movie with skill and a deep understanding of the emotional depths he needed to reach. Alongside Garfield were a number of talented actors who all did good work. Sam Worthington, Hugo Weaving, Rachel Griffiths, and Teresa Palmer are just a few of the standouts in the film. The entire cast felt committed to the story, which brought out the best and (if needed) the worst of each character. There isn’t a lot to complain about from an acting point of view. With a good script, the actors worked their craft and made a great film. Andrew Garfield was also honored with an Oscar nomination for Best Actor. […]

    […] The performances do a lot to elevate the material throughout the film. Viggo Mortensen was the perfect choice for the lead role. His committed performance adds a level of authenticity to the whole experience. He also found a way to connect with all of the young people in the cast. Among those people were George MacKay and Samantha Isler. These two also found nice ways to connect with the material. Frank Langella and Kathryn Hahn are just a couple more of the actors who brought this one to life. Their roles helped to bring out some of the emotional conflicts within the film. Overall, the acting didn’t let this one down. For his work, Viggo Mortensen was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role. […]
