The Patriot is technically a good movie. Nicely made with good
good acting, a strong storyline and fabulous cinematography.
But, to say this movie distorts history would be an understatement. And
that is extremely sad in a movie that sells itself as an accurate
of events during the revolution. The Patriot, unfortunately, crosses the
line and try's to portray as 'actual fact' a film which is predominantly
fictional. Hence, the 'real life' equivalent of Benjamin Martin actually
used to scalp Native Americans in his spare time (a fact neatly overlooked
by the director).
This 'rose tinted' view of history is at its worst during the
scene where a British Army officer ordered the murder of many innocent
civilians by locking them in a church and setting it alight. This event
never took place and yet, thanks to The Patriot, a whole generation of
Americans will believe that the British Army actually committed this
horrendous act in South Carolina -- when in fact history shows that it was
not the British Army that burned a church full of people in 1776 but the
Nazis that did during WW2.
As a Brit, I don't so much mind Hollywood always portraying us as the 'bad
guys' -- after all it is American money making these films -- I'm more
concerned that some Americans actually believe what they watch. This is
especially true in movies like The Patriot which 'pretend' to be real.
It's a shame that in such a technically competent movie, which pays such
attention to minutiae detail like the costumes, that something as
significant as the accuracy of the screenplay could have been so
