this is one of my favorite mel gibson movies- there is no better film to lift your spirits and stir up the patriot in each of us. the story line is riveting- a man left with no choice but to fight for the things that he loves, the acting flaw less, and the cinematography leaves nothing more to be desired. an excellent film
This movie is one of my all time favourites, I watch it all the time and it never gets old. Both Mel Gibson and Heath Ledger are amazing in the roles that they play, and action in this movie is so well done, they really researched all the history and it shows! top work!
The Patriot is a film great. Its plot is flawless, costumes were perfect and the acting was of the highest class. Mel Gibson shines as the parent trying to protect his family and exact revenge on the man who brutally murdered his son. The film showcases film making at its best. It is easy to watch and even easier to fall in love with the story and the characters. American history has never been this entertaing .
This is one of the greatest movies of all time, mel gibson was the lead in 2 movies that willl be my favourites forever, being brave heart and the patriot, a great plot, and mel gibson is absolutly amazing, this is one of those movies youd be crazxy to miss, but in saying that if you hate blood give this a skip as some scenes have a fair bit of it
aww this movie makes me cry everytime, it is just sooo sad at times. but it is a really good action flick. it defiantly is a must have for any good dvd collection. its a ten out of ten for me, Mel Gibson just does such a good job in this film, i just love it!! A++++
A fantastic movie, fantastic actors, fantastic atmosphere, fantastic directing, fantastic story line, everything about this movie was good, it welled up several different emotions and feelings in me, especially animosity towards the early brits, it was all in the moment though, from the beginning to the scenes where the boys defy their father , join the army, and to where the older son gets killed by the hounding british general to the incident where everyone is burned down in the church and the boy's sweetheart is in there to the avenging by mel gibson of his son's death and certainly avenging all the deaths of the innocent, sure that event was predictable, but it had to happen, i wouldnt have it any other way, a fine movie through and through, if they released this in the cinema again i would go and watch it for sure
A former hero of the French/Indian War, Benjamin Martin has renounced fighting forever to raise his family in peace. Although once a wily and ferocious soldier, he marries a fine woman who bears him seven children and, under her influence, trades his violent past for a peaceful future on his sprawling plantation. But rebellion is brewing--another conflict with Britain is inevitable. Recently widowed, his goals change. He's the sole caretaker of his brood, and the horrors of past combat haunt him still. Benjamin's eldest son, Gabriel, harbors no doubts about going to war: the radical speeches and newsletters that began in the cities and traverse the Colonies have made an impression on him. War is coming, and Gabriel feels the cause is just. In defiance of his father, he joins the fight. Benjamin is conflicted--as stalwart as he is in his opposition to the war, he believes in the cause. When the British arrive, the reluctant hero discovers that he must join the nation's war to protect his family.
Braveheart in America... the action sequence in which loving father Benjamin Martin unleashes the violence of his past to rescue his captured son is AWESOME, and Jason Isaacs makes for an over-the-top, slimy, smarmy bad guy that you just want to die, but other that that, the film doesn't quite ring true... the loving white family living in harmony with the black fishing villagers? And I'm not sure where the whole thing fitted in history (at least in Braveheart, you knew about Stirling Bridge and Bannockburn)...
Tedious civil war movie about a family who fight the good fight and overcome all sorts of obstacles to emerge at the end standing for right and truth and the American way. Characters are dull, story is contrived and protracted and its hard to care what happens to who. The end is a long long time coming.
