If you want an honest and unbiased film on the American Revolutionary War you should probably look elsewhere, but viewed as a fantasy, I find this a memorable, gripping war film with an excellent cast (Isaacs, Wilkinson, Auberjonis, Logue, Cooper, Baldwin, etc.) about a father reluctantly taking up arms when his children are threatened. It is in no way original, but it is well executed and to my mind, very entertaining and even emotional. ( )

There is one reason to watch this bloody spectacle and that is Jason Isaac's superb villain. Had he been allowed to be more than two-dimensioal and Gibson's hero less moralistic, this could have been a good movie. ( )
