Mel Gibson's 'Hacksaw Ridge' has quite the MPAA rating description

"Rated R for intense prolonged realistically graphic sequences of war violence including grisly bloody images."

Yikes! "Bloody Mel" is at it again. We all know he never skimps on the violence with his movies: "Braveheart," "Passion of the Christ" and "Apocalypto" are three of the most violent movies I have ever seen. He seems to revel in staging be-headings and grisly deaths.

I got this little nugget from my "Apocalypto" review from 2006!

"When watching "Apocalypto" you can clearly tell it is the work of a mad man. All the better for it.  Which is not to say Gibson isn't a competent filmmaker. He actually really is talented. His shot selection and camera movement is masterful and his love for story undeniable."

I'm catching Hacksaw Ridge at a press screening on October 18th, the film comes out on November 4th.
