  • But, it is still a good historical fiction film to consider on a weekend when you want to feel a bit more patriotic
  • The thing I like about this movie is it gives a bit more credit to the real winners of the Revolutionary War, the individual militias that weakened the British military enough for the regular continental army to finally claim victory
  • If you're looking for something to watch on the 4th of July, this is probably the best movie I can think of

      Of the Mel Gibson movies I’ve seen, I wouldn’t put The Patriot toward the top of the list. But, it is still a good historical fiction film to consider on a weekend when you want to feel a bit more patriotic.

      The thing I like about this movie is it gives a bit more


      credit to the real winners of the Revolutionary War, the individual militias that weakened the British military enough for the regular continental army to finally claim victory. And, though this is centered around a fictional character, it’s still pretty good.

      The battle scenes are pretty realistic and the action is enough to keep you ...


      • entertained. It’s very similar to watching his other movie, Braveheart, only the combatants are fighting with muskets rather than with swords.

        I also liked how the movie didn’t go out of its way to paint the British generals as idiots; like other movies will. It gives credit where credit is due and shows a

        wide range of British commanders; some who are geniuses, others who are vicious murderers.

        If you’re looking for something to watch on the 4th of July, this is probably the best movie I can think of. Again, it’s not Gibson’s best, but it is still pretty entertaining; even for those who aren’t big into history.
