About this movie

In 1776 South Carolina, widower and legendary war hero Benjamin Martin (Mel Gibson) finds himself thrust into the midst of the American Revolutionary War as he helplessly watches his family torn apart by the savage forces of the British Redcoats. Unable to remain silent, he recruits a band of reluctant volunteers, including his idealistic patriot son, Gabriel (Heath Ledger), to take up arms against the British. Fighting to protect his family's freedom and his country's independence, Martin discovers the pain of betrayal, the redemption of revenge and the passion of love. 2000 Global Entertainment Productions GmbH & Co.

This movie would have been way better if Mel Gibson directed it himself. Roland Emmerich is a cornball. Mel was great in it of course. He is the best actor and director around and one of the only people who called out the (((you know whats))) in Hollywood years before they were all exposed as serial rapists.

Watching this movie gave me a significant emotional experience. Midway through the film my eyes busted with red, white, and blue rays, turning my pet Bird Skittles, into a Mecha Bald Eagle. My dogs sitting on me l had transformed into great white shark horse hybrids with laser fireworks shooting out of their gills, this movie inspired Skittles to which he scooped us up, shooting lasers and patriotic lightsabers. All Together with ended the drug war and save Iraq from the Nazi/terrorists. Thanks Mel Gibson.

Would have given this for stars. But, I can't stomach Mel Gibson because of his obnoxiously overt anti-Semitic views. Still, I have to admit he's a very talented actor and director.
