"Great, maybe a bit long"
4 stars"

Don't get me wrong, this is a incredible movie. It manages to capture the horror of war perfectly without excess blood. This is quite a sad movie, not that that's a bad thing.

The battle scenes are amazing. The great thing about them is that they show the tactics used. Since the muskets could only hold one shot first, the armies had to decide whether to get the first shot or the better ground.

I did mention that the movie is a bit long. There is one scence that takes a break from the war which seems to slow the whole movie down. Other than that, the excess length is welcomed.

I would give this 4.5 if I could.

Description

Academy Award-winner MEL GIBSON gives one of his most remarkable performances as legendary war hero Benjamin Martin, who's forced to take up arms again when his family is torn apart by the savage British redcoats during the American Revolution. He recruits a band of reluctant volunteers, including his idealistic young son (TWO HANDS star Heath Ledger in his first international blockbuster), and the ragtag band of warriors begin a daring and dangerous assault on the British forces in a fight for freedom and revenge. From the producer/director team behind hits like INDEPENDENCE DAY, STARGATE and the writer of SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, this thunderous epic is one of the year's most powerful and highly acclaimed movie events.
