The father is seen drinking and talking to a gravestone in the beginning. We assume he is an addict since he is seen as abusive and unstable.

Desmond has a nightmare where he sees a green flare. When looking out of the hole they’re in, there are several Japanese soldiers up close staring back. It is meant to make you jump.

When inside a tunnel, Desmond stumbles into a dead Japanese soldier that has been hung.

As with any war film, many soldiers - including liked characters - die onscreen.

However, Doss successfully rescued 75 men from Hacksaw Ridge and lived on to the age of 87.
