THE PATRIOT (Theatrical Release USA 2000)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

The Patriot—good American Revolutionary War movie—combines the acting talents of Mel Gibson, Heath Ledger, Chris Cooper, Tom Wilkinson, and Jason Isaacs to produce a story of hardship, nightmare, revenge, evil, and the realities of war. No lack found in acting or portrayal of storyline here. Absolutely a good watch. This is one of German Director Roland Emmerich’s (Independence Day) better films.

Storyline
