From the director of the Academy Award winning film "Braveheart," Mel Gibson, comes a new WWII film about American Army Medic Desmond T. Doss who served during the Battle of Okinawa but refused to kill people. Despite the fact that he refused to fire a gun, Doss managed to save 75 men. Doss became the first conscientious objector awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.

FOX 4's Shawn Edwards sat down Andrew Garfield, who plays the role of Doss in the new film "Hacksaw Ridge," to learn about the closet he's ever come to combat.

"I'm not a big fighter," Garfield said. "I don't like it. I don't like getting hit. I don't like hitting people."

In the video above, Garfield also shared what it was like to work with Gibson.

"Hacksaw Ridge" opens in theaters Friday, Nov. 4.
