The father and son look so alike, it's ridiculous.
Mel Gibson's son Milo Gibson makes his acting debut in the visceral World War II biopic 'Hacksaw Ridge' and shocked people earlier this week when he showed up at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater for the US premiere looking a total dead-ringer for his famous dad.
Milo Gibson looks so much like his father
The 26-year-old looked the spitting image of his father as they appeared together on the red carpet at the 'Hacksaw Ridge' premiere in Beverly Hills, California on Monday (October 24th 2016), although he looked distinctly less lined and his beard wasn't quite as impressive.
In 1919 Desmond Doss was born, he lived a quiet life and always wanted to become a doctor and also had ambitions to marry his sweetheart, Dorothy. As the World War II continued to spread terror around the world, Doss knew he must play his part and serve his country with his fellow man. For religious and ethical reasons, Doss had always been a pacifist and never believed in hurting another man and joined the forces as a medic in the hopes of saving the lives of injured soldiers.
When he arrived for training, resources were so tight that all medics were made to train in armed combat, there was no other option but to pick up a weapon and begin training like everyone else on the base. Unable to falter from his convictions, Doss's superiors were soon involved in the situation and Doss fought for his beliefs and was officially named a conscientious objector; that also made him a target for the other recruits who came to nickname him a coward.
As their initial battle day approached, the men didn't look toward Doss as one of their own, more as just another potential body going into a losing battle. The whole regiment found themselves being bombarded by powerful blasts from bombs and guns and somehow Doss survived, but not only did he survive, he went on to pull a number of men away from the front line and save them from certain death.
