After proving himself on the field of battle in the French and Indian War, Benjamin Martin wants nothing more to do with such things, preferring the simple life of a farmer. But when his son Gabriel enlists in the army to defend their new nation, America, against the British, Benjamin reluctantly returns to his old life to protect his son, now serving under his command, and his family from British tyranny.
It is 1776 in colonial South Carolina. Benjamin Martin, a French-Indian war hero who is haunted by his past, now wants nothing more than to live peacefully on his small plantation, and wants no part of a war with the most powerful nation in the world, Great Britain. Meanwhile, his two eldest sons, Gabriel and Thomas, can't wait to enlist in the newly formed "Continental Army." When South Carolina decides to join the rebellion against England, Gabriel immediately signs up to fight...without his father's permission. But when Colonel William Tavington, British dragoon, infamous for his brutal tactics, comes and burns the Martin Plantation to the ground, tragedy strikes. Benjamin quickly finds himself torn between protecting his family, and seeking revenge along with being a part of the birth of a new, young, and ambitious nation.
A movie that could've been so much better than it's final incarnation, The Patriot just manages to be decent summer movie entertainment. An overpatriotic cliche-burdened work hidden under violence and "serious movie" colors, the movie demonstrates the same naive flagwaving attitude as the director's previous Independence Day. Mel Gibson remains the movie's sole strong-point, bringing to life an otherwise formulaic "nice-guy slaveowner" character. And, oh the formulaic characters: the motley band of rebel rousing goodguys, the stoic black slave who in the end wins the friendship of the hokey cracker, they're all here. A decent melodrama if you try not to think too hard in the theater, The Patriot is too contrived in too many places to be taken seriously.
I had a serious deja vu feeling when I was watching this film. That expression on Gibson's face, where did I see that before. Of course! Braveheart! This is definitely a complete rip-off of Braveheart. The proof is overwhelming: it has the exact same "freedom" topic, it features some miraculous victories against overwhelming odds, it features the same facial expressions of Gibson, and again the English are the bad guys. Here, however it's much more questionable. Were the English really that brutal? And it just doesn't become clear why we should favor Gibson. He kills people virtually at random. He makes a complete fool out of himself, playing some sort of Rambo in the woods. I mean: "Before this war is over, I'll kill you." Haven't we heard stuff like this before. This film is below average and inferior to Braveheart in every respect. The scenery is less fascinating, the characters are less fascinating, the storyline, the music, ah, well, I rest my case.
Does benefit from Gibson's charisma...Whether it is quite good enough is another question.
For three reasons: (1) The officers would be more experienced in defending the column that was escorting Gabriel to prison. They'd be better able than those lower in rank to fight off an attack by a single man and two boys. Additionally, officer training is more intense and involved than basic training, and they would be more knowledgeable in combat tactics. (2) With the officers dead, the other Redcoats in the column would find it harder to organize themselves into a single and effective fighting unit to repel the attack, as we plainly saw happen. So, without the officers yelling orders to the lower ranking soldiers, it was easier for Martin to mount his attack successfully. (3) Targeting officers specifically was not a standard military tactic at the time. It was not part of the gentlemanly code of warfare and would cause upset and confusion when the Rebels used this tactic. Yes and no. We're probably suspending some of our disbelief for the sake of the story—the scene is an excellent opportunity to introduce us to Martin as a great guerrilla warrior. Also, he had the advantage of his two sons already being excellent marksmen, having taught them that specific skill. With their elevated position on the nearby ridge, they had a huge advantage. Additionally, Martin had extensive knowledge of the area near his farm and the terrain therein. He chose the spot specifically for its cover by the natural flora (trees, shrubs, etc) and the ridge where he planted his sons to act as his snipers. This is a technique employed by marksmen, especially with less accurate weapons such as the muskets and other muzzle loaded weapons that were used during the American Revolution. What it means is the smaller the target you aim at, the smaller the chance of missing the larger target. For example, if the boys were to aim at an officer, they could miss him. But if they aim at a button on the officer's coat, they may miss the button, but they'd still hit the officer. As suspected by many people, the "new" Extended Cut features mostly scenes that were first used as deleted scenes for the old DVD release. Now these passages were re-integrated into the movie, adding up nearly 11 minutes to the movie. No. As with most films of the genre, it is fiction based on/inspired by true events. a5c7b9f00b
