Plot outline: Carolina del Sud, 1776. Benjamin Martin, stanco e sfiduciato delle tante battaglie sostenute, ha deposto le armi dopo la guerra tra pellerossa e francesi. E' deciso a vivere in serenitÓ. Si Ŕ sposato e ha avuto sette figli. Rimasto vedovo, si dedica ai campi, ma la guerra Ŕ alle porte : bisogna decidersi se schierarsi per la guerra contro l'Inghilterra. Lui non ne vuol sapere, ma il figlio pi¨ grande, Gabriel, non Ŕ daccordo col padre e, contro il parere paterno, si arruola. E solo quando il colonnello Tavington, comandante dei Dragoni verdi inglesi, gli uccide un figlio a sangue freddo, sotto i suoi occhi, Benjamin decide di riprendere le armi per combattere contro chi gli vuol togliere famiglia e libertÓ. Summary written by rosebud6 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. Summary written by Brian Barjenbruch Ashamed of his savagery during the French and Indian War, Benjamin Martin decided he would sit out the American Revolution, while his oldest son Gabriel enlisted minutes after South Carolina joined the fight. He changes his mind when his house is burned down and one of his children is killed by the savage Green Dragoon commander Colonel Tavington. Quickly realizing that traditional 18th century warfare tactics won't work, Martin organizes militiamen into a guerilla unit to harass Cornwallis' army long enough to allow the French to arrive. Summary written by Jeff Cross {blackjac_1998@yahoo.com} Benjamin Martin is a South Carolina planter who is still haunted by his notoriously brutal past as a soldier in the French and Indian War. When the American Revolution comes, he chooses not to fight for the Continental Army because he wants to protect his family. But when the British Colonel Tavington threatens their welfare and kills one of his sons, he chooses to enlist. Martin becomes the leader of a makeshift militia, which consists of peasants, slaves, a minister, and assorted other irregulars. During the war Martin and his men discover that they will pay a steep personal price for their rebellion. But thanks to their courage and bravery, they are also destined to pay a pivotal role in turning the tide against the Redcoats. Summary written by {jgp3553@excite.com}
Comment: This action packed tale of bravery not only makes the viewer cry but also jump out of his seat and daze in amazement. The Patriot is an example of great Hollywood film making. It goes to the extremes of life and ends in a glorious ending. The ever twisting plot leaves the viewer guessing and anticipating the next scene. Though the picture has a long running time every minute is worth the look. I guarantee you'll enjoy this picture, you won't want to blink!
