Hacksaw Ridge

Hacksaw Ridge (2016)

2 corrected entries

Corrected entry: When the Sargent is describing the M1 Garand to the men, he calls it a 30 caliber weapon, I believe it is in fact a 30.06 caliber. The carbine was 30 caliber.

Correction: While the M1 Garand uses 30.06, its official designation is "US Rifle, caliber 30, M1."

Corrected entry: When Desmond's dad interrupts the trial, he is seen with the Silver Star medal. Desmond's father served in WW1, but the Silver Star wasn't created until 1932.

Correction: The Silver Star Medal was authorized on July 19, 1932 and was a replacement for the World War One decoration, the Citation Star. Recipients of the Citation Star were allowed to exchange their World War One decoration for the new Silver Star Medal. As such, it is not out of context for Desmond's father to be wearing the Silver Star Medal. (Trivia: the Citation Star is incorporated into the design of the Silver Star and is seen at the center of the Silver Star).

Mistakes

Throughout the first battle at "Hacksaw Ridge" some of the men are seen pulling the pins of grenades with their teeth. In actuality, the pins on the grenades (both modern and old ones) take at least 7 pounds of force to release the pin. If someone did that, they'd either cause severe damage to their teeth or maybe lose a couple.
